    well usually a lot of new guys play a couple moves then never come back to the site.

    that is especially true for non-subscribers.

    Actually according to your profile you have not completed a game yet.

    Further to that he has only made 6 moves over three games so how could he have completed 3 games ??

    He didn't lose on time a lose only counts if 3 moves have been made.

    Since, as KnightStalker47 points out, a game doesn't count until 3 moves have been played on both sides, you can just trash the game if you feel the other guy is going too slow. You don't have to wait for him to actually timeout.

    You can also check their profile and see if it looks like they move regularly. Again, if it looks sketchy just trash it (even if they responded to your open invite--the game still won't count before 3 moves).

    that doesn't change the fact that only 1 person of four has even made a move w/in the 3 day time limit (game over; & you're right- no game equals no win)... but you haven't addressed my post- does anybody here actually play

    I haven't noticed your move count increasing.

    Nope, you figured it out, nobody here actually plays.

    Guess you'll have to move on to somewhere else.

    To check someone's profile just click on their name.

    If you really want to play, trash your stalled games right away and start new ones. Don't sit around waiting for a month and then complain about it.
