    Why don't you bring this matter up with the staff directly?

    I agree...did it not say "please contact chess.com support" right in the message?

    This might be a stupid question but... what's a "simuls"?

    Oh ok. But how does that differ from ordinary chess.com play?

    I think getting an opportunity to play with NM aww-rats is good for ordinary players. His willingness to play a 'simul' means an agreement for accepting challenges from any rated players.

    I also tried to participate that 'simul', but not allowed only due to my time out ratio status has been reached more than 10% which is an obstruction to attend any tournament as per the fair play policy of Chess.com.

    I doubt  sometimes NM aww-rats received this message just because of that the number of games he lost on time may crossed this time out ratio limits.

    Or I have no idea whether he wanted to take a prior permission from Chess.com before going for a simul. Possibly Chess.com would also be interested and encouraged in his willingness to play a simul.

    Will you be playing any more simuls here? If so when?

    Ratts, yesterday after the simul your time ran out and I got a message that my opponent (you) may have violated terms.....blah blah blah.  so If you ran out of time on a lot of your games I can see that happening. I wonder if there is a special section for players that wish to conduct a simul? Im sure they will lift the ban as soon as they figure this out.

    They may also think that he lost of a lot of games on purpose in order to lower his rated; this is also a violation of rules. Having so many games at the same time may have played a part in this. Next give a simul with only a limited number of players, maybe 15 -20 and no more and have a longer time control so you won’t ran out of time.

    I had connection problems during the simul and lost by abandonment. Did I violate Fair Play too?

    How do you send a support ticket?

    Hey rats.  In terms of procedure, since you have to be White, you should be the one creating the table and inviting the player.  In this way you avoid unwanted fair play policy to be applied on you.  Cheers.
