    Hi, I'm new to RedHotPawn.com. I am just testing whether I am able to post or not.

    I am testing the pgn posting function:

    This is a strange one minute game that I played on chesscube. My opponent was not very strong, as should be immediately obvious:

    [I AM UNABLE TO POST MY GAME, COULD SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I AM DOING WRONG?]

    I put the pgn tags around my pgn, but it says it is invalid.

    Here is my pgn in raw text form:

    [Black "rainstar@chesscube.com"]
    [Result "1-0"]

    This is what the format should look like, remove the period in the first bracket set before the 'pgn'

    remove the period and you get



    Edit: I simply copied and pasted what you wrote in your profile. The pgn function is found when you post in the forums below the box you write in. Just click on it and then copy and paste the desired pgn.

    I tried that but it would not work. :/



    I just manually edited mine to add starting and ending squares for each piece, as I saw that in the pgn for another person's post. It worked for me like this, but it is strange that it would not work for me the first time, with the obvious method that I tried, and you suggested. :/

    Thanks for the reply
