when I start a new game, it says No Chess for 05 min. but this joke is going for last 7 days ??
Hmmm that's weird. I would think you wouldn't have your account restricted if you had a membership. When did you get your membership? I'd give you the link to the page where it talks about account restrictions, but I'm not on my pc
It happens, if u Abort the game or left the game in between too often
I does not matter if you have membership or not...
i dont know
The point is to prevent players to abort games too frequently - because they don't want to play Black, because they want to play against 1.e4, because they don't want to play against players with a 'z' in their screen name, etc. - or to let the time run in hopeless positions instead of resigning - because it's better to annoy the opponent and make him wait to win, I suppose.
Either case is considered poor sportsmanship, and it needs many occurences to lead to punishment (restriction).
