This morning, about 30 minutes ago someone accepted a seek to play against my computer account, but he/she aborted the game at the beginning and my computer ran out of time.

After that it was flagged to not play rated games and i received the message below:

“JimmyS (08:02 25-Mar-18 EDT): Hi. Please check your ChessNoobComp handle for
\  malfunction. It flagged very early in a game on the ICC.”

Please, i have got some (not many) aborted games before (this account started to play a few days ago) without problems, but this one somehow flagged this account.

Please, for how much time i will not be able to play rated games ?  :-(

I was having a blast seeing my little (and weak) engine play games, winning or losing.

Please let me play grin

Hi there.

I reinstated your account to play rated games.
Computer’s accounts are automatically blocked when they lose a game at its incipit.
This is done to prevent abuse in case of a malfunction.

Regards.
