Let´s rate sportmanship!

  • #1

    It's really anoying that some players starts offering a draw when they start to loose. (Sometimes several times between each move.) Or just stop playing when they are loosing, so you have to wait until their time runs out. If you could rate your opponents sportmanship after the game it would be possible to avoid playing against bad loosers. Or?

    Nice idea. If your rating falls under a certain threshold, your username could appear in red letters during the game, as a sign to expect the worst when playing this guy.

    You could always write them a note on their profile page, though, or block them, so you won't have to encounter them again ...

    No, because the sore losers would mark you down for refusing to give them a draw.

    I asume most players are fair. So if everone wote after each game the bad loosers would be in minority and their wotes would not influence your rating.

    How can I block them?

    Note that you can ignore draw offers. Just play your move if you want to decline, you don't have to click the button.

    I know that. But when someone´s offering a draw after every move, or several times after each move. It´s just distroying the match and ment to disgruntle you!

    Right, but if you play normal people they usually won't vote you up (why bother?). And again, the sore losers and you end up with about the same bad rating.

    I had to search for a while, until I found it, I never blocked a user before... :)

    Thanx.

    I concur that there needs to be some downside to unsportsman-like conduct. I'm new to chess.com. In two of my three wins, the player just quits rather than resigning a lost position. Some offenses are verifiable so what not some escalating sanctions? Do we have a written code of conduct? As I said, I'm new.

    When a player doesn´t wote in a game the other player could automatically get at "Fair play" point. When someone plays unfair you could give a "Unfair" point. So when someone has f.ex 25% of his games rated unfair it woukld appear a "Chopped chicken" symbol at his name ;o)

    It can easyly be solved if you only can vote after a game that lasted say minimum 20 moves or a minimum time?
