Friend all I wanted to do was ask a simple question, and get a simple answer.  Aye or no?

What I got was, [I presume is there for all to see ] and I take exception to being treated so.

The first thing you got was a prompt, polite, friendly, and helpful response to your question, from Baldr.

The next thing you got was an equally friendly and polite heads-up that writing in all-caps on the internet is considered equivalent to shouting in person.

After that, came levity, and still fairly friendly responses.

You, on the other hand, have not returned that sentiment, and still you are treated with cordiality.

Please understand that the world isn't out to get you :)

Doesn't Chess.com advertise itself as being cap-friendly?

I think they should create a untimed game feature because I want to play an untimed game with my friends and they go on chess.com irregularly so they often time out on timed games.

Why would you want to play an online game with absolutely no time limits at all?  If someone got into a losing position, they could just let the game sit there forever with no way for their opponent to end the game.  I would think that one week per move would give someone plenty of time to move.  And if someone couldn't find the time to log in and make a move once a week, then they probably should give up playing chess.

Well... I'm shy :-)  and really hate the clock pressure because I also suck at chess... but the 3-day per move is very reasonable though...

There is a practical reason why all games are timed as well: games are literally never abandoned. I could come back to a game after nine months and still expect to access it. Meanwhile, your opponent might just be sitting there twiddling thumbs and wondering what is going on. Soon there might be millions of open games that the server would have to keep track of. It would get kind of ridiculous.
