    You cannot delete games. So you cannot delete folders that is not empty either.

    The reson that you cannot delete your own games, is that your games are not your games only. They belong to your opponents too.

    im not sure, but i dont see an option either, so i think its impossible to delete your archieve.
    You could 'clean up' a little bit and transfer all your finished games to the Archieve folder, then get rid off all the other empty folders...

    Create a folder called TRASH BIN

    Move unwanted games there.

    Never EVER click into that folder.

    These games are now gone... as long as you don't peek in.

    As stated, you can't delete games as they are part of the site now.
