I've noticed that the higher rated players always seem to double, while the lower rated ones just make moves. At first this was annoying and I would resign in frustration, especially if I was leading a tournament by twice the 2nd place player's score. I'm sorta getting used to the pop-up now though. It would be better if there was an auto-accept doubling button or switch so that it didn't mess up concentration at the start of the game.

Actually it is a very good pro-chess policy! Are you here for a fair game, or do you just want to be White in every game?

The way to think about this is: when you started the game for a certain amount of time X, you are prepared to play for the time of 2X. How the opponent uses their X time is up to them. And if they sit there and flag, you still won the game! Don't second guess people. That's the beauty of chess - people can play it how they like, within the rules. I'm pleased that there is no silly policies applied to this like on chess com. Over there they have a "fair play policy" which is a sham because people use it to play unfairly. For example if you start a bullet game, there could be someone at the front door, and you have to rush off and get that. When you come back it gives some stupid message about how you have been reported for possible rule violations! Obviously that site was not designed with real chess playing in mind. Furthermore, to combat this sort of behaviour is very easy: turn up your sound volume to full, then go into the kitchen and start cooking. You will hear if they try to sneak in a move.

Same here. In fact if you leave your king in check, they can claim the game! So it's up to you to be aware of what's happening. I suppose there could be a button switch for this, and you could turn it on or off, if you preferred, but again, this site is doing a great job in not pandering to mediocrity
Keep up the good work!

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.
