    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I come here to play maybe once in three years and missed a lot in forums.
    There's an option to delete my games in the archives? i have maybe a dozen worth, the remaining ones are pretty meaningless and i believe it's a waste of space.
    Hints anyone?

    Simple answer- you can't do it.
    However, you can create up to 24 titled archives and move games around.
    I would create an archive called "trash" or something and move all the games you don't want to see again into it

    Ok, thanks.
    I thought there was an option to delete all the useless games as i guess it's a waste of space for the servers, not that it matters much.....

    It's a difficult task to mark games for deletion, because there are two players involved in each game and your opponents may not wish to have their games deleted. In this day and age data storage is plentiful and cheap. When was the last time any of us did a major deletion job on our own computer storage?

    yep, you're right, i didn't consider that my "useless games" maybe matter for my opponent.

    The opponent can save the games on their site, can they not? It should be easy to delete your own games on your own site. What's the problem?

    All games are stored on the rhp site server.
    I don't understand what you mean by "their site"and "your own site"
    There's only 1 site for rhp games

    I think he means their own PCs Dave, rather than sites.

    I thought the reference was to the users own saved and archived games folders on the RHP site. Seems strange that if storage on the server is plentiful and cheap, each user cannot either keep or delete their archived games. If I delete a game from my archived folder, that should not prevent my opponent from keeping the game in theirs.
