    I can sort my games from least to most time available for the next move. I'd like my games to automatically come up in this order. So, when I finish my move with one game the next game to appear would be the game, of the ones where it is my turn, with the least time available.

    Right now I go back out to my entire list of games and then "hand pick" the one to work on next.

    Is it possible to have the default play sort come up as I've described, and I'm just ignorant about it?

    Thanks

    As far as I know, there is no way to influence the 'next game' (if that's what you choose as an after move preference).

    This is one for 'site ideas' I think.

    There should be ways to say what determines the 'next game' - by timebank, by timeout, by last move, tournament / league / clan / rated etc.

    I use firefox and open up all my waiting games in different tabs in the order I want to play them. I keep a low game threshold though (usually less than 10 active games) - not an ideal solution for everyone. I also sort them into folders - but I don't think the site recognises that you're playing games from a particular folder when it selects the 'next' game.

    Different tabs for different games. Never occurred to me. Thanks Mr O. Might try that as I do sometimes flick between several games before deciding.

    in the top right, on the red line you see a ''0 games waiting'' link:
    http://www.redhotpawn.com/core/gameserve.php
    (the number may be different depending on how many games u have available ofcourse)
    Im not sure but i guess it takes you to the game with the least time available.

    Once you've made your move in a game, click on "go to next waiting game". It will take you to the one where you have the least time available.

    No. It will take you to the game with the longest amount of time lapsed since you last moved. This is not the same as the least time available.
