    When creating an open invite.......how does one add the following next to the open invite please?
    1. The rating limits e.g. 1500-1800
    2. Accept game offer

    If you click on the "advanced settings" link when creating the game, it will give you boxes to set minimum and maximum ratings. The "accept game" link automatically appears to anyone looking at the open invites page (assuming they have the necessary rating).

    Thx CJ, I did so but still i cant see the Accept game offer myself so i assume only other players could see that. Is that correct?
    Thx for your time.

    If you created the game, it won't say "accept game offer" but the rating limits you specify will be displayed. I see no open invites created by you in the list at all.

    Hi Kewpie, I did create new invites but all are being accepted already. I will create a few new invites now.

    You can not accept your own invite. That's why you don't see it.

    You will also notice that you don't see it where someone else has set rating limits that are out of your range.

    In other words, you will only see it for the games you can accept.

    Click on the "accept game offer". If it isn't there, you can't accept that game, probably because your rating is outside the specified range.

    I created an open invite game, but forgot to set the ratings limits. Is there any way to edit/delete an open invite game once posted?

    No, just delete the game and set up another.
