    and I didn't know which forum to post it in..

    but I was wondering the protocol for games like this:


    [gid]http://www.redhotpawn.com/core/playchess.php?gameid=2857428[/gid]

    Thing is, I've been waiting ever since I made an account with this person for her to make a move - :/ I don't know what to do.. It's been like a week.

    Any advice for an obvious beginner? haha

    just click the skull.

    game id links need the game id, not the url. the syntax is [gid]gamenumber[/gid], so for the game 2857428 it's

    Game 2857428

    also, people can't open the url you posted, it works only for you.

    Just the game number like [gid] 2857428 [/gid] without spaces.

    Game 2857428

    Nevermind, I should read the original post fully before posting, put it down to lack of sleep and no coffee.

    Click the skull, or the trash can, or wait. Whatever you want to do.

    Game 2857707

    1. h5 is a terrible response to e4.
    2. Look out for attacks on your pieces and develop towards the centre.
    3. Your rook is worth more than his bishop.
    4. Try not to needlessly weaken your already kingside.
    5. Meh
    6. Moving the same piece twice in the first six moves usually does not bode well.
    7. And again.
    8. Your destroying your own defenses.
    9. Bf8 probably won't save you now.
    10. Don't walk into mates in 1.

    Hope this helps.

    Any game with less than 3 moves in it allows you to click the trash can and delete it. Don't wait for the skull because it's too short for it to count against ratings.

    Ultimately harsh advice but since I suck at chess, I guess I can't say "ouch" too loud. Thanks guys.
