I am tired of players who offer a game and include the condition "fast play only" or "30 minute maximum game time" and they proceed to play the game at a snails pace and then drag it out forever once their position is hopeless. They won't resign, they won't move until they nearly time out and then they make a move. Why even make the offer if you don't intend to follow it?
Originally posted by chessisvanityI am not adovating resignation, unless they are unwilling to play it out. But, at the very least, they could have the decency to finish the play and not abandon the game for days and drag it out for weeks to avoid the inevitable.
i resign when the games calls for it.
i do it out of respect.
Originally posted by shortcircuitI think people should just resign against me, rather than dragging games out for weeks and weeks trying to avoid the inevitable.

Originally posted by FabianFnasSo, you are okay with the practice of dragging out games when it was stated prior to starting that it MUST BE QUICK or SHORT DURATION game? Whether I have only 6 games or 600 games going, it makes no difference to making my point. And, for the record, I am examining this site to determine if I want to join it and the incidents I am referring to are being performed by members. Sort of reflects badly on the membership, don't you think?
I resign when I want, not when some other want me to. I am in charge for my decisions.
I let others resign when they want to. They are in charge for their decisions.
I am a subscriber so if my opponent drag his feet, then I start another game or two or how many as I want. The problem is when a non sub only has six games going and is dependent of his opponents doing their moves.
The solution is of course to subscribe.
