Please be patient, the application may take a few minutes to load on a slow connection. If after a short wait, nothing changes, then please check you have the most recent version of Macromedia Flash installed.
This is probably due to a firewall blocking the required port for uChess to work correctly. Port 1935 must be open.
If your opponent disconnects from a game you will win the game and your rating will be adjusted to reflect this. Your opponent will also be awarded a 'disconnection' - and their reliability rating will be adversely affected.
The icons are as follows:
Ratings are fixed at 1200 until 5 games have been completed.
Until 20 games have been played, your rating is considered provisional. This is indicated by the 'p' character when browsing rankings.
Whilst you are a provisional player your rating can be quite erratic. Your true rating will be established after 20 games.

Garry Kasparov's Russian joke : In a park people come across a man playing chess against a dog. They are astonished and say: "What a clever dog!" But the man protests: "No, no, he isn't that clever. I'm leading by three games to one!"
