    You can check people's profile for how often they move or look at MAP and find out who moves a lot and challenge them.

    This site is a server based correspondence chess site.

    A move a day is considered quite quick. If you want blitz type games google " blitz chess" and enjoy.

    i thought you considered a move per week quite quick

    look at people's profiles .... if they have made lots of moves this month then they play fairly regularly .. if they also have only a few games in progress then they play very fast.

    When you log onto the site, look at the 'public games' page and you can see who is currently making moves. That might be a good starting point if you want to directly challenge players.

    Another way would be to create an 'open invite' and see if someone takes up the game. Then just remember to cancel it before you leave, if there are no takers.

    If you want lots of moves.. just start around 80+ games. and you most likely will have a move all the time.. there will still be some lulls, but in general.. you'll have a move.. but., you will need to be a subscriber to have that many.

    Not all true, I had about a minute without any moves to make ten minutes ago with 145 games going. One whole minute...!

    that means you need to add another 52 games.
