    When players get banned,do their subsciptions get cancelled and their games resigned?
    I have 2 members of my clan whose subscription stars have dissappeared and their games have been resigned,but there is nothing saying that they have been banned.
    Does it take like 24 hours for this to show?

    Are you sure that they did not resign these games themselves?

    It's due to Rayleigh scattering:

    This is also an excellently played game by Vampirella http://www.timeforchess.com/gameanalysis/boardhistory.php?gameid=5059232

    though her/his opponent did slip up a bit by letting a pawn walk down and take the g pawn and h rook.

    Rayleigh scattering

    GDC A

    There is a physical phenomenon
    called Rayleigh scattering
    that causes light to scatter when it passes through particles
    with a diameter

    one-tenth that of the wavelength (color)
    of the light. Sunlight is
    made up of all different colors of light,
    but because of the elements

    GC A

    In the atmosphere
    The color blue is scattered
    Much more efficiently
    Than the other colors.

    You will often see!

    Back in the old days, the days of yore
    There was a giant named Rayleigh
    Who was getting really bored

    He took a whole bunch of elements
    And put them in a guard
    And placed it at the end of a 2x4

    He used a Mt. for a fulcrum
    He put on his boots
    He jumped in the air
    In the air it shoots!

    The guard broke open
    The sky turned blue
    That’s how it all went down
    Why would I lie to you?

    I would not lie to you!

    Wow wow wow!! I'll add this to my list of favorite songs (mmmh, somewhere between New Math and The Element Song). Did you write it / sing it?

    With my apologies for derailing an "only chess" thread....

    I bet if you and I had a couple games like that, it would get far more commentary. Then again I have been wrong before.

    Looks like they enjoy playing each other, they have played almost as much as you and I have.
