    on a open invite, when it says FAST GAME PLAY NOW. That means PLAY NOW...

    This is correspondence chess. If people move within the allowed time controls, you have no complaint. If you want blitz chess, there are plenty of sites that provide that.

    HOW hard is it to understand that a player is well within their rights to take as long as the timeout and timebank allow to make their moves? If you want that to be minutes not days then go play on a live site.

    Then WHY accept the game?

    The issue is your understanding of the rules of this site. I'm done with this conversation.

    What's your definition of fast game?
    1 move per minute.
    1 move per 5 minutes.
    1 move per 10 minutes.
    etc.

    Best thing you can do is finding a same minded person to play a game of chess with, what you are trying to do with this thread I guess, with the same definition of fast.

    if i ask you to play and lose then should i expect you to?
    NO !!!
    you also cannot expect people to play to your own vague schedule that is clearly not supported by this site.

    i have never asked anyone to do this before ... i usually encourage all people to play here.

    but ... you ... please play at another site that supports timecontrols measured in seconds.

    please play here as well of course .. but accept us playing at our own speed within the site expectations.

    FAST on rhp is 1 move a day. you can't have shorter time control here. likewise, NOW on rhp is during 1 day.

    Play within the rules of RHP, and the spirit of the game, or reject the invitation; not so complicated -is it?

    Use the Blitz room!!!!!!!!! Its good fast and just what your after. RHP has done everything in its power to accomadate everyone.

    So "Move now" = should play Blitz.

    With your rating, you should actually be taking your time to move.
