    so do i get the same rating points for a timeout win as for a win by resignation or checkmate

    Two basic types, those who see a checkmate coming and resign, saying "good game" or some such, and those who run away and let the game time out.

    Whom do you think would be more fun to hang out with?

    naturally the first type.they dont waste time in a site that gives only 6 games

    You have to win the game - not expect your opponent to surrender.
