    Can you ask people to look at your ongoing games? Sorry if it's against the rules. Not trying to stir the pot just wondering how I was playing so far as I am very new to playing.

    They can look, but can't give advice.

    so can't say if moves I already made were good or bad? Not about what moves to make next or anything.

    Why not just wait until the game is finished?

    Ever considered playing blitz instead of correspondence?

    You've been here three weeks and made 12 moves. I hope the blistering pace doesn't burn you out.

    Comments about earlier moves might well influence how a player evaluates the
    current position. For example, a comment of "your opponent's last move was a
    blunder" could influence a player to look for a way to refute that blunder.

    As a fellow amateur I would advise that you just play your moves and enjoy the game win or lose, I use the analyse board option a lot and follow some potential moves for as many phases as I can keep in My head, obviously it is based on what you think your opponents responses might be, but it cuts down on some of my sillier mistakes.
