    Hi everyone.

    Im a bad player, that I accept. As a matter of fact using the word "bad" is an understatement. But atleast I can bask in the glory that I have won half of my 50 odd games played so far. So there are "badder" player than me out there!!

    Enough of the ramblings. Lets get to the problem:

    In the game (link below), I got my posterior end kicked hard. But after 38b - b5, the game should have ended and become inactive. But for some reason it remained active. Even my opponent had no clue as to why this happened. I resigned (which I should have done much earlier)and we both went our merry ways.

    So here's the question: Was this a glitch or was it something we didnt know about?

    Thanks to all who will take the time and make the effort to answer this.
