The game no. is 5117914 and the challenger was Jwaite8956, any help would be appreci ooked at it a bit more it is me that's won so someone has challenged me and then resigned?
I just looked at Jwaite8956's games and it appears that he challenged you and then immediately resigned. You didn't resign, he did. It also appears that he did the same thing to another player besides you.
Since no moves were made it does not count as a rated game and will not change your rating. It will appear in your game statistics, however.
I suggest you go to 'My Settings' and change your 'challenge settings' to zero so that nobody can send you these surprise challenges in this manner. That should end the problem.
If you do change your settings, be sure and click the 'update' button at the bottom of the page to make your changes take effect. This applies to any setting changes you may wish to make for your account.
With your challenge settings at zero, you can still create or accept open invite games or send a challenge to someone you want to play. It mainly will help to keep you in control of which games you are playing. If you want to send a challenge to someone it is usually better to send them a private message first and see if they are interested in a game.
