Checkmate / Stalemate

Note : Checkmate and stalemate are not automatically converted as a win or draw, your opponent has to resign or accept draw before.. I thought it was a more friendy way, and you have the possibility to send a last message with your move.

What will happen, if my opponent won't resign after a checkmate?

You can call referee after a while. Anyway your opponent will loose on time before the one move time limit.

Referee - Checkmate

That's not quite all right, I think. In case a game is won by checkmate, the game should be over - that is: without referee and without me waiting for my opponent losing on time. Would you consider changing this? Just a suggestions.

I considered that there wasn't so much difference : Generally players resign before being checkmated. Whoever playing until checkmate "quickly" will probably resign quickly... A player who wants to last a game will do it before checkmate... I really think it's only more friendly (and original).

Anyway, if too much players or council think otherwise, I'll change it. Thanks for your feedback.

About checkmate, I just fixed a bug that prevented players to resign if they were checkmated. (hum :)) That's why 2 players called the referee.

I think I was one of those payers. I won the game a few days ago but my opponent has not as yet resigned the game.

Game 332

I'm refering to game 332.

Thibault de Vassal    (2006-04-24 18:43:59)
It was precisely one...

... of these two games ! The player wanted to resign but he couldn't "because" he was checkmated. The bug has been fixed today.

Opponent does not resign after checkmate

The bug might be fixed but my opponent won't resign. Do I really have to wait 48 days - I've just checked - till he forfeits on time? How do I make him resign?

1st Rating Calculation - May

Be patient... :) I'm sure you won't have to wait so long. Resigning today or next week doesn't change anything, the first rating calculation will occur the first days of May. Just call referee at the end of april if he didn't resign before.

Amici sumus.
