    Thank you.

    Subfolders (folders within folders) cannot be created in this version of the 'my games' page.

    This may make an appearance at a later date.

    You have a delete folder button to remove any folder you may have added. If none have been added previously, there will be nothing to delete. I may make a quick update to make sure this button does not render in the case of just the default folders existing.

    The new menu bar on the left (with Folders and Filters) is very nice, but I would like to be able to hide it. Most of the time I don't need to see or use the functionality there, and then I would like my game list to use as much as possible of my browser width.

    It looks great, thank you Russ.

    Why are there only 20 game per page though? I can't seem to change it.

    Hiding the side bar was meant to be a feature for this first release, so I will do what I can to get that in there today.

    No more than 20 games can be viewed unless it is the inbox folder. This is to prevent the situation we had before where people had hundreds (thousands?) of games in their archives, and viewing them was killing the server.

    Do you think this could be increased to 40? Won't people flipping through the games pages all the time also put strain on the server?

    40 is too many. I have upped it to 30.

    Edit : Page flipping does create load on the server, but lots of bursty quick requests are way better than one huge requests which could eventually timeout on the browser anyway (and therefore be all for nothing).

    Click on the manage games link... select the games you want and then move them to the desired folder.
