Where do I report someone for cheating?

    Some one plays extremely fishy.. he is rated 1300 in blitz/bullet, 1400 in standard, with online rating of 2100, his tactic rating is also 1300, with over 300 puzzles done.

    His online stats : 65/3/1... very fishy for a guy with over 500 Blitz/Bullet/Standard games who plays very poorly.

    I mention it to him it is weird, and he replied he cant think in games 30 minutes or less, but proceeds to block me? I never even accused him, so even more fishy.

    Where is the report button? Thanks!

    That's not evidence of cheating.  Maybe they've only played a few live games and their rating never had a chance to reflect their ability.

    Maybe the person knows it looks fishy, but really is bad at live chess, and being made uncomfortable by your question when he has no reasonable sounding excuse, he blocked you.  Maybe others have abused him in his message box saying similar things (even though you started out nicely).

    Anyway, you can fill out a ticket to report abuse like cheating.

    you know where the report button is, you have been here for 3 years now. Now try and have a go finding it.

    You do realize that in online play you can use databases, so pretty much everyone is better at online play.

    If you suspect someone, please use the Help & Support link at the bottom of any page. When that page opens, click on the left side option where it says Contact Us and submit a 'Suspected Cheat' ticket.

    We provide tools to report cheating to our staff. But having several constant and redundant threads on the topic that circulate with the same questions and comments over and over again isn't helpful, and instead causes people to worry more than they need to. If you want to discuss cheating, please do it in this group

    I said they played over 500 live games lol.. 1400 Standard rating with best win 1420 lol, 100+ games played in that section.

    And KCO I do not see any report button, my best guess is help and support but that does not sound anything like a report lol, I been absent 6+ months so I rarely remember anything.
