    If you volunteer as a Greeter (thank you!), then you will notice that games pile up from new sign ups, who then go on to make no moves.

    These games will now be removed each night (a minimum of 24 hours after creation) if there is no activity from the new player.

    Hopefully this will unburden Greeters from the admin work of removing games which are highly unlikely to ever be played.

    edit : Just want to credit @Hanzii with this suggestion.

    Hi Russ, thank you for that. I normally allowed them to mature to a ripe age of 72 Hours 😉

    @Russ Thank you for the change. I enjoy being a greeter but wasn’t fond of removing the games from non-movers. Larry

    No problem and thanks! I usually wait the normal 10 days, but this will keep my supply a little more fresh!

    Seems that the feature has worked well last year not so much this year. I have one game which sits unstarted and was not removed:

    Assuming you didn't delete this yourself....this game was deleted automatically as it should (eventually)?
