Online Chess Game Setting ?

GeniusKJ

When I challenged someone to a game, I wanted to make the game unrated... but that option is gone?!? Why can't I challenge anybody with custom settings? Why did chess.com change the options that were available when I selected "Challenge to Play"?

I want to play my favorite FM at an unrated game ;)

Just choose game options I select from the dropdown, instead of the usual game options.

when i click the arrow for the dropdown, nothing happens! :(

I cant change from the usual options to anything else... I'm using mozilla firefox... maybe I'll try it with IE

It works for me on Chrome.

I figured out the problem. The problem was that it was already my turn in a few games. chess.com set a rule which doesnt allow games to be started if the player has to move in many games.

I made some moves and then was about to challenge my FM friend.

Thanks for trying to help me out artfizz - really appreciate it.
