    What do the stars next to players names mean? Why do some spin?

    A spinning star means that the player is an especially good dancer.

    I really thought possibly the first post I did on the "HELP" forum might have simply attracted a bunch of juvenile idiots, but I see it's a general problem, not an isolated instance!
    Why post if you're not trying to help??? Why ridicule someone who goes to what is supposed to be a source of information, only to find thoughtless posting bullies who play their mindless games on your post??
    Just in case one of you actually KNOWS the answer to my two questions, I'll politely ask again: HOW do you write and answer messages in "BLITZ" games??? And: How do I designate games as "Urgent" I have two games in a tournament that have less than an hour of time left!!

    Calm down young man. have you tried using forum search?

    Blitz Games - this is easy - use dialogue box bottom right of board

    Urgency - best is to click the "alert" column heading link on te my games page - this sorts games by those with least time remaining.

    Enjoy your time here, join in the banter too.

    I have to agree there, the man was wanting help. I take it you were a newbie once?

    Someone wants help and all they get is abuse. FFS, why does anyone post on here.

    For the record I dont play Blitz, so I cannae help you on this one mate.

    Abuse? FFS - i see nothing abusive directed to the thread starter.

    The questions were blunt - no hi, please or thanks, and in the first case it's quite an obvious answer to anyone actually playing a blitz game. I've answered both points now, and hope all concerned are able to maximise their enjoyment of the site.

    Maybe instead of banter we should install a jukebox to liven you stiffs up a bit? (Note: this is closer to abuse, but not really close still)

    edit, 4000+ moves in 6mths is hardly 'newbie'
