    It would be good to have a list of items to be negotiated before the game, such as when resignation will occur, what saying "good game" means after the game, what saying "Good Luck" before the game means, whether conditional moves will be considered arrogant, which are better pancakes or waffles, and perhaps, who was the best player of all time.

    Have I forgotten anything?

    also if your opponent is going to change his or her screen name and not quite as important--avatar at any point during the game.

    When and how many times it's acceptable to offer a draw could be one.  Along with best player ever we could clear some other things up like which is preferable, knights or bishops, how exactly en passant works, how ratings work, how the time control works, whether you can have more than 1 queen, and if stalemate really is a draw.

    Will the players use opening databases or are players required to remember stuff?

    1. Whether drawing by repetition means you're a gutless weasel.

    2. How quickly after the game one may publish it to the forums (complete with derogatory remarks) and whether or not one should include the hapless victim's real username.

    3. How many minutes one is allowed to be showing online before a move is expected in a 3 day-per-move game.

    What kind of music, if any, the two parties will listen to during the game. If agreement cannot be reached the game is aborted.

    Will you let time run out rather than resign?

    What the 50 move rule means, whether it will be observed or will play be allowed to continue forever?

    If chat is permitted, are vwls optional?

    Will you be resigning quickly in order to get your preferred color in the next game?

    Maybe if singing whale music to them over Skype is ok. Sometimes they don't like the surprise and wonder where the human-made whale sounds are coming from.
