New feature : Silent mode !

Due to several problems caused by a few players recently (mainly insults in private messages), I just created a "silent mode".

Every player who will not respect the FICGS general rules & netiquette may be placed in this mode for a certain time or permanently, that way the player can play games and enter new tournaments but it is no more possible to send messages to other players (or receive messages with moves) by any way, this is the only way to avoid troubles in tournaments.

I'm very sorry to anyone who received such messages and I'll take care to avoid and prevent this in the future.

My best wishes,

Long time coming.

This is definitely needed for a very small % of players. Congrats on another fine improvement.

I haven't faced this at all here, but -

I haven't faced this at all here; didn't expect members here to behave like that - it looks like once you have more than a certain number of members, then statistical laws start applying: the small expected percent of insulters goes above 1, ...

Good step. I didnt even know this problem had turned up here!

Good idea !

This "feature" is a very good idea to protect players from such assaults.

This kind of attacks can be very disturbing and was in my case the reason why i stopped playing blitz at the chessbase server.
