None of my opponents are replying to my moves, why not?

Remember that this is correspondence chess…

...it is normal for games to take weeks or months to complete. But sometimes people do leave the site mid-game. You could try using the private message system to send your opponent a message, or wait until the time runs out and then abandon the game (if five or less full moves have been made) or claim a win.

You can see how active your opponent is before you start a game - each players profile page shows you when they were last active and how many moves they have made recently. If a player has not been active on the site for more than a month, it is likely that they won't respond to your offer of a game.
