    This feature doesn't worn properly on the games where there is real danger of time-out loss but instead has its own criteria.

    Foe example I right now have several games in which there is less than 24 hours to time bank, but Activity Summary is listing to me couple of other games in which I have more than 2 days before time-bank begins to deplete.

    So it's a flaw number 2 (besides underdeveloped vacation system).

    I'm missing something I guess.
    Where are you seeing an "activity summary"?

    Right upper corner, on the red tab on which you can see
    New Game, Forums, Clubs, Clans, Community, Help ---- and on the right end of that tab there is a white square on the red. Acitivity sumamry.

    Aha! Now I see it. I had not noticed that before. Thanks.

    If you are having problems with how it works you may need to put together something explaining the problem and how you think it should work,
    then send it in as a feedback or post it in the 'site ideas' forum.

    Maybe an improvement would be to let us choose what is an "urgent game" for our own purposes by offering a selection of criteria,
    similar to that offered on the "my games" page under the "sort by" option.

    I would simply suggest that this summary gives list of 3-4 games (I think now it is 2 games) ordered by least time left before time-out.

    I think the "bug" is in it, that a "counter" or something like that cannot tell the difference between time and time-bank.

    And I can further add that it would be even more difficult for that "counter" to tell the difference between games without time-bank and games with only time-bank.

    Well, it would probably be too tough task for software team here.

    Time left before timeout means time remaining + time bank remaining. So if Game A has 1 day left and 14 time bank and Game B has 2 days left and 7 time bank, Game B has 9 days left and Game A has 15 days left under this sort.

    vandervelde, If you like using that 'activity summary' link you should go ahead with presenting your suggestion with a feedback or in the 'site ideas' forum.
    What can it hurt? It is not working well for you now and it is already in place, so improving how it works may not be a problem. Programmers like a challenge!

    The worse that can happen is that they don't fix it, but if you don't ask then it will not happen for sure. So make your suggestion and see what happens.
