    This site is one of the, no it is the best chess site I have been to. (other ones were yourturn.com
    and gameknot.com) Noth not nearly as good. First question would be how to end an account on this
    site? I can't find any where on the site that can let you end an account. is there one? Also can you
    delete archived games? I goto my manage archive and there aren't any boxes to check in the
    delete column, next to the unarchive column. Thirdly and lastly probably the oddest,is I'm playing
    my friend here on this site. Both of us are very... shall I say sore losers. And neither one of us want
    to resign and haven't offered a draw yet. Now the thing is that both of us ONLY HAVE OUR KINGS
    LEFT!? is there any automatic draw due to inssufficient material progammed onto the site. The
    game so far has been OVER 90 MOVES SO FAR! check it out it is grandmaster vs. jakdaxter. Any
    help would be apprecited. Thank you.

    i dont think u can end an account (i dont think there is an account)i
    believe u can just leave as soon as u finished ur games. about the
    archived games i have no idea sorry. n about two kings left i believe it
    has to be a draw, actually i think its a draw there must be a problem
    cause i rem this happening before n u received an automatic draw.

    If it's a draw, why not just offer a draw and your opponent can accept.
    That will end it.

    With luck, RHP will recognize the 50 move w/o capture or pawn move
    limit. By my counts, ya'll have been pushing nuthin but those two
    kings back and forth for something like 35 moves.

    So, if all goes well, only 15 more moves until another draw checkpoint
    is reached. Maybe it will end then. Keep us posted on whether you
    reach an automatic draw after your 50th pointless move.

    That is of course, if NEITHER ONE OF YOU ROCKET SCIENTISTS
    SUDDENLY WAKES UP AND USES THE DABBURN BRAINS GOD FILLED
    YOUR HEADS WITH AS SOMETHING OTHER THAN PIE FILLING AND
    GOES AHEAD AND OFFERS THE DRAW YOURSELF BETWEEN NOW AND
    THE SECOND COMING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    NAB DABBURN BUNCH O' IDJITS. AH HAD ME A SKITTLEEYED MULE LESS
    ORNREY AND STUBBURN THAN YOU TWO!!! PACKED THAT DANG
    CRITTER OFF TO THE GLUE FACTOR FOR FAR LESS OBSTINANCY THAN
    THE LIKES O' YOU ARE SHOWING. AIN'T YOU EMBARASSED FOR
    SHAMING YOUR POOR MAMAS WITH THIS SORT O' CANTANKEROUS
    BE-HAVE-YORE?

    If you don't agree to the draw, and it doesn't automatically kick in at
    that 50 move mark, then I think you should offer to up the ante as
    follows: Neither one of you can leave the board for food, drink, or
    sleep - until the game ends. That'll settle which one of ya's got the
    bigggest "King"!

    Good luck!

    Hey, Maggoteer. That's too funny!

    But, perhaps you jumped the gun a bit. You forgot to tell them fellers
    about the "secret" game winning king move that can only be revealed
    after they have reached the 500th move of the game.

    Keep playin' fellers. We haven't seen this kinda action since the '93
    bingo championship in Dade County.

    Nudge. Nudge. Wink. Wink.

    I was going to tell them about one of vaknso's (I think) games: his
    king was actually captured, and yet he was able to play on.
    Of course vaknso promptly did the "right" thing (if not the entertaining
    thing) of resigning immediately.

    There are some interesting quirks here. And when the interesting
    quirks of programming meet the insteresting quirks in personality....

    It need not be the longest game. FIDE-rules say that, when there's
    not sufficient material on BOTH sides, it's a draw. Neither player
    should play on. It's simple. Jan

    Yeah we are very stubborn and neither one of us really want to offer a draw, let alone resign.
    Resigning is just out of the question, because the game should have been a draw due to
    insufficient material like 30 or 40 some moves ago...
    Now look see hea' we is a lil wee bit own the stubburn side o' things... but this here for the
    pride o' the community... well actually I's guess thats the family. ^_< wink wink haw haw... but
    dagnabbit i ain't never gonna give no draw offa...
