    ok I got some games. Even a strong one. No big deal. Move on.

    The site is far from dead with around 35000 active players. If you want a quick game put an offer on Open Invites with a 1 day timeout and a small timebank, it will soon get picked up.

    Greetings! I can play you.

    I apologise in advance though, I cant play seriously until tomorrow after lunch as I shall be in class.

    ....wait a second. I could play IN-CLASS (as this site isnt blocked by WebMarshall)

    Sweet! I'll see you tomorrow!

    When I started here some years ago, I had no difficulties to fill the 6 slots of games.
    Why have others that problem? I cannot imagine.

    I had a hard time getting games as a provisional. When that was done, though, I had no problems filling up the slots. I think the p is a little bit too intimidating as it doesn't necessarily reflect their playing level.

    roughly 99.99% of provisionals never finish their games. 90% never come back after the day they join. the hanging games they leave behind to rot are probably the main reason people don't take the challenges. but the more they finish games the more people will trust them. it's just something you need to work through first.

    When I started I played other provisional players. Had no problems getting games.

    If you really want to play, try getting into an arguement with someone like Wulebgr who will demand satisfaction on the chess board.

    I only wanted a few games so I changed the settings to decline any challenges. It's just that I was sitting and staring at my computer screen last night waiting for a game and I got frustrated. I'm calm now.

    As a non-subscriber you can only have a maximum of six in progress.
