On the CFC website there is an option for a "single tournament fee". What does this mean? Will I get a CFC rating? Can I get Norms without a CFC membership?

Good to know, Phil! I hadn't pre-moved, and the clock had started ticking, but still glitched. I'll try refreshing like bird suggested if it happens again, but I'm happy to address this with chess.com support.

' PhillAtwood Just now @Jonny_Vancouver I've had this happen to me too. Twice. Seems like it is when you pre-move the first move as white. And it only seems to happen in tournament play. ' -- YES!!! I thought it was my fault -- but exactly the same story -- only 2 times -- both as White -- wouldn't 'accept' e4!!! Thanks for sharing -- add my name to the list!
