Greetee- Hurry the F*** up!
(Three days later)
General-Lee won on time.
greetee: please be quick
greetee: do your move
greetee: go on
General-Lee: dude, this is corr. it may be days between moves. if you wanna play live go to www.chess.com/simple
greetee: i want to join torniments
greetee0: thats why
greetee: ok 'dude'
greetee: do u understand
General-Lee: ya, i used to be like that.U get more patient after about 200 games.
greetee: this is my first
greetee: u there
I feel ya. They want to play superfast games. I was even accused of cheating becuase a pawn they moved they swear up and down moved by itself.
So far I haven't had a greeter game that I didn't win on time.
i've only had like five...
I actually got beat in one.......
I was beaten twice, but then again, that was at my rating dish (about 1350) and i played poorly.
I don't think alot of first-time users immediately grasp that the Online Chess is correspondence style.
THAT"S THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE NEED TO MAKE IT CLEAR!!!!!!
lol, did you leave your greeter name in just one post to let us know who is he? (I don't understand why you have hidden his username in most of the chat entries if you wanted to let everyone know who is) :)
(With that username it is not weird he wanted to play quicklier.... lol)
and btw, I do agree with you... I don't understand why someone volunteers himself as chess.com greeter to be in a hurry a few minutes later...
We could try yelling it at them....
lol i meant to put the names out but i guess i missed that one
Edit: @ TheGrobe:
I feel ya
I actually haven't had a greeter game for a while for some unknown reason even though I am signed up to play a couple. But most of them I do win on time, and from time to time I have gotten the 'want to play in 5 minutes' new member but it doesn't happen that often. I'd say 90% of the new players I play with time out.
