    Jesus, give it a rest. How many times are you going to post this ridiculous hypothetical position to try and support your absurd premise that the Site Admins shouldn't answer players questions? How many more threads are you going to start on this non-issue?

    EDIT: This doesn't belong in the "Help" forum anyway. Perhaps you could start a thread in Site Ideas urging an adoption of a new forum consistent with your views: we could call it the "Non-Help Forum".

    Sir, you sound like the excitable type. I'll have you know that there's nothing hypothetical going on here. Didn't you see the link to my game in progress?

    There's obviously not too much else going on in your life right now.

    Is there anyone here who can actually help answer my question?

    You're not supposed to discuss games in progress.

    Oh I know! I know! White's playing from the TOP of the board and it's not even a check. Is that it?

    But it shouldn't be in progress. I have mate on the board!

    Umm, no, I was able to move my pawn from b7 to b5 to administer checkmate. That shows that the pawns are going the right direction.

    Thank you for sending feedback. This is not a bug. Your best move would be to sweep the leg, Johnny!~

    Wouldn't it be great if GP34 now received an unsolicited PM from Chris

    edit: even the Analyze board does not recognize the e.p.

    Just because your mate is on the board, it doesn't mean the game is finished.

    The analyze board does not recognize any rules. It's a dumb board.

    Hi - just found this thread.

    Flettered that my game is the subject of so much speculation.

    Never noticed the mate - have so many game in progress.

    Surprised system has not indicated checkmate - sent feedback.
