If they do not, then the Doubling Cube is automatically applied and the game is resigned, meaning the winner wins double points, the loser loses double points. If you're paired against a non-mover, simply offer the Double Cube.
OMG I messed up making this suggestion a few days ago.. Its already there.. Gosh, you guys are fast.

I love this also. Hope people wont start aborting like mad, though. Dumb people always find a way to mess up..

And now I am banned after 1 week! I got a message saying Cheating / Sandbagging. Wasn't doing either of the sort. I won a few fischer random tournaments, that's all. Could a staff member please help me with this? Thanks.
I emailed [email protected] a while ago, but they didn't even have the decency to reply. In case staff did not get the email, here it is.
Dear Chesscube administrator,
I was a member of your site for a week and it was really quirky and fun.
I took a liking to the fischer random tournaments and was playing those
often. I liked those tournaments more because there are no time odds,
and no silly doubling up sequences... we can just play fischer random.
But then I got a message saying that I was either cheating or
sandbagging and my account was a ban. It was not my intention to do
either of those things. Perhaps this came about because I had to resign
some games in another event? I was not given a chance to explain my side
and being accused of cheating was not very nice.
What was happening was I entered a fischer random tournament but there
was some wait, so i entered another tournament to pass the time while
waiting. However halfway through this event, the fischer random
tournament began and all of these games started flashing up on my screen
with a doubling up notice. I was busy playing my fischer random game and
these notices kept annoying me. I didn't care about what happened with
those games, only the fischer random ones. But this message kept coming
up, even when i resigned those games to avoid the double up. After a
while I tried to ignore the message by just switching back to the
fischer random game window, but still messages kept coming. I didn't
know how to exit the other tournament so i continued to ignore those
messages. When those messages stopped, it was because that tournament
This has happened to me before, and I still don't know what to do. That
silly double up message is very annoying when I just want to play chess.
Chesscube is a good site and the fischer random games are very useful in
relieving everyday stress after work.
I hope that you will lift the ban and I can still play in these events.
Thanks for hearing my side.
