    Is anyone else having probs with people who put "multiple moves per day" in their profile but then take days to make a move. Is there any way to verify this before accepting a game?

    ive had this happen to me, people think differently of "multiple"as im on here all day when you move and im on, ill move....some people this it means 3, some think it means 30....the best way to fix it is to be a member and load up on so many games you forget whos moving when!!

    No he's on "Sick of hearing N00bs whine about people moving too slow." Like the rest of us. It's correspondence chess. It takes time. Don't like it? Tough rocks.

    What does "multiple moves a day" really means? I do multiple moves a day, but not in every game.

    Some players may find me slow sometimes, but anyway, 15 moves a day is multiple a day. But in the 21/21 tournament I certainly not doing multiple a day, but you should see me in the 1/0 tournament.

    yes, game proirity...the average game you do multiple moves.....it takes some time to get used to, the c-c (and yes, i didnt know how to spell it or else i would of) anyway...after a while its actually better...

    back to the question, they have blitz chess now, which can be a fun way to get the moves out of you untill your real games show up.

    Thanks for your input guys...
    btw Stoopid, why bother? You were a newbie once too don't forget. We learn by asking questions. I just wanted a few thoughts on the matter. Now i know i'll have to be more patient.

    If you want faster play there is always the Play blitz button up in the top right hand corner or Uchess. If you want to play RHP games a little faster (maybe finish in a day) ask some people! Have a look at the player tables, find someone who moves a lot of times a day and send them a message suggesting a game in x minutes or hours or whatever. You never know, they might say yes!

    Thanks Kepler. I never noticed that button before. Is there an FAQ about Blitz play? Wanted to know what the increment time was?

    when I was a non-sub scum, I checked people's number of moves per month to get some idea of their real pace.

    then I wised up and started playing slower. you can check out the graph to see how that affects your chess in the long run.

    Lol, I'm sensing a certain vibe here...

    Wormwood, why would playing slower affect my graph. Isn't that just my rating?

    playing slower means better moves & less blunders. hence, your rating will shoot up.

    I think the time settings are whatever you want - you can set up a game or accept one that has been set up by someone else as far as I know. I haven't played blitz for 20 years so I haven't even clicked on the button yet, I just know it is there!
