Default Yahoo! Chess anyone?

I didn't want to hijack the other thread about BC Chess Tournament so posting here. I play in freechess.org and yahoo! chess. Typically a 5-min (Blitz) or 15-min (QC) format suits me better. Anyone else play on these chess servers? Maybe we could do a faster version of the standard chess there? Let me know if anyone is interested.

thanks

So far I have 3 players for the Yahoo! Chess league:
- cluster11
- One World
- uk replica

I'll try to update this thread on a weekly basis and hope for any new comers. I'll keep this open till September 15 and then we can discuss the playing format. I propose a league every quarter with each player playing against everyone else in a best-of-3 series of 15-mins time limit match. I'll post instruction on how you can save your moves (have them mailed to your yahoo account) and then I can host them online somewhere so we can all enjoy replaying them. Looking forward to more entries, comments, suggestions etc.

I hope everyone interested has created a yahoo account by now. Saving your game in Yahoo Chess is easy. Just choose to mail your game after it finishes. Here is an example game mailed to a yahoo account:
