    I keep getting warned that I may be in violation of fair play when the server aborts and kicks me out of play.  Anyone else have this issue?

    maybe you didn't move.. that's why you get warned,,try to move after your opponent move or when you're white,,you have 15 - 20 secs to move,if not,,the server aborts it.. Then,the violation will give it to you because you didn't move,,

    Thanks for the feedback players.  I think this is a bug.  If they boot me after their servers are mistaking bugs for fair play violations, that would be a rather heinous bummer.

    Fair Play Policy

    On his or her turn, each player has 15-20 seconds to make their first move. If this does not happen, the game will be automatically aborted. This has a negative effect on the Fair-Play record of the player failing to move.

    If you're restricted (kicked you out of play), it means you have to wait 5 minutes between each live chess game.

    You will still be able to play games with friends or accept/create direct challenges, but you will not be able to create or accept open challenges until you play more games that follow the fair play policy.

    It happend to me yesterday and I thought maybe the guy I was playing was somehow cheating.  He took forever to move, but as SOON as it was my turn, its like the server timed out for 30-50 seconds.

    I SEEM TO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.  I START A NEW GAME AND THE SERVER ABORTS BEFORE I CAN MOVE (BLACK OR WHITE) IF WHITE I MOVE WITHIN 5 SECONDS.  WHEN BLACK IT JUST ABORTS AND GIVES ME THE 5 MINUTE WAITING PERIOD. I TRIED 7 DIFFERENT TIMES TODAY AND GOT THE 5 MUNUTE WAIT EVERY TIME.  I HAVE PLAYED SEVERAL HUNDRED GAMES AND ITS THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS THIS PROBLEM HAS COME UP.

    I have never experienced this.  I have waited over 5 minutes for a game to finally be timed out when a player failed to move.  This has happened many times actually.

    IT JUST HAPPENED TO ME AGAIN.I PRESS THE "START GAME" BUTTON; I HAVE ISSUED A CHALLENGE;  MY CHALLENGE IS ACCEPTED;  THE BOX BEGINS TO SPIN; THE GAME ABORTED SCHREEN COMES UP "ABORTED BY SERVER".  WHAT GIVES?  NOBODY HAS HAD A CHANCE TO MOVE. COME ON STAFF, FIX IT OR TELL ME WHAT I AM DOING WRONG. REIS2

    Maybe find a pattern?

     

    Is everyone who is experiencing it aborting before the pieces have come up or even when they move their first move within 5 seconds using a mobile device to play?

    i do not use a mobile device, just my desktop.  the game usually aborts before i can even make a move.  if white i move when the pieces come up, less than a second.  if black i move as soon as white makes a move,  less than 2 or 3 seconds.  it aborts usually right when the pieces come up. reis2
