Too many aborted games.

Those who do not make the first move, thus leading to the abort of the game, should be penalized with decreasing points in the raiting. Another way would be to start the timer as soon as the chess board appears, thus reducing the playing time, without giving the 24 seconds of thinking. There is no need for thinking for the first move. There are many aborted chess games.

In chess960-games, I would honestly appreciate even more time to think before the game starts... That's why I mainly play it in correspondence

May it be that some body does not want to play you?
