    I found a player I played on the blitz site here, he lists Greece as flag, Allard Zwerus, and played a couple of games. I went to the main site and put that name in 'find player' but nothing came up.

    I think the blitz site can be reached by other URL's. What other addresses can get to the blitz site? Also, he said the address bar read www.redhotpawn.com:blitz schaak microsite

    Does that look familiar to anyone? I typed it in and got nothing.

    I have played other people who don't appear in 'find player' and was wondering what is going on with that. Thanks ahead of time.

    If he's only ever played blitz and hasn't started any games on the main site, he won't be listed. Don't know why, exactly.

    Ah, that may explain it. But how do you explain that odd URL?

    Do you mean the skins here..'immortalgame' and 'chessatwork' etc ?
    The guy you mention just isn't present here, even running through the 'by country' route which lists all the Greek non movers. There is obviously another route to finding him but I'm at a loss presently...

    No not the skins, that weird URL I posted. I think that is the exact spelling he gave me. Could be wrong though. He wrote it twice.

    That's the URL for the blitz site you get if you click on "blitz" in the header. On the actual page it says "Red Hot Pawn Blitz microsite". It may say something completely different if you're using the mobile version. "schaak" is the Dutch word for chess.

    As someone else already explained, people who haven't played on the main site won't show up in the player list.
