    Because of the increasing number of complaints regarding people accepting and then deleting open invites, all accepted invites are now returned back as an available open invite once deleted. If the original creator of the open invite chooses to delete the game, it is removed permanently, as before.

    There was a subtle issue with this update, which has now been fixed.

    Any people unable to move in an open invite game will have their games sorted out over the next few hours.

    Wouldn't it be better if you just weren't allowed to delete a game once you've accepted an open invite? What legitimate need could there be to allow this? Even if the invite goes back into the list, it is annoying and delays the inviting player getting a game started. Shouldn't people be expected to evaluate whether they are interested in the game before accepting it, and then live with their decision?

    Some people instead of going to advanced options to set the rating limits type the limits in the box that says game name, which would make it so anyone could accept that game offer. The user wouldn't want to play them and wouldn't be too happy if that were the case.

    Then set real limits the proper way.

    That issue only affects the person who placed the invite ("the placer" ), not the person who accepted it ("the accepter" ). I think the placer should be allowed to delete the game (there might be several reasons why they are not happy with the accepter. not just rating) but I cannot see why the accepter should be allowed to back out, having accepted the game with full information available to them.

    What's the difference. If someone wants to avoid playing a game they will just resign anyway.

    The way Russ has done this is much cleaner and I can't quite see what difference it makes to the person starting an open invite,

    Edit: here's an example of why you might want to delete an open invite. Someone creates a game 1 day n/a and asks for a quick game. You accept the game and the creator doesn't move for the rest of the day. You had one day where you could move fast.

    Ok, I withdraw my withdrawal.

    I used to be indecisive ...
