    It should be a maximum of 15 minutes, but may over run a little.

    A site upgrade will be taking place. The "my games" page mainly, plus some other tweaks.

    This took a little longer than expected, but we are now back up and the work is complete.

    No harm to you but I preferred it the way it was

    I had my games all on one page now are over 6 pages, I had them that the most recent moves were at the top but the new way does not allow that :'(

    I can't seem to archive finished games anymore
    --> I see it will go automatically after 7 days. Please let me get rid of the games that are finished. I do not need to see them in my current games list since they are not current anymore

    I can sort on time out but don't get to see what the time out is

    yes you can, click the button behind the game, then chose a folder to put it in (archieve)

    i see now that my original folders are there when i want to archieve a game, but i used them for games in progress, but now the folders dont appear in the left menu anymore;(

    edit: ur right, the game doesnt go away!

    I don't think any of us can archive games - my page looks messy because it's taken finished and previously archived games back into my current games page and won't now archive them

    Don't worry, this didn’t have a beta phase, so I can collect feedback and revise.

    This release was more about underlying changes than the presentation of "my games" page.

    Folders are still there, but only on the 'all my games' page. It was clear from reviewing data that most people did not use folders for games in progress, hence the change.

    gosh now my games are everywhere.this is not a good way i dont like it now my folders are gone and my games are everywhere

    I don't like the fact 'time of last move's' been taken away - that makes working out timebanks a bit of a guesstimate

    EDIT : I take that back - I see you just need to click on timebank... looks good

    I agree. There might be some advantages to the new form, but for people playing a lot of games, the 'status'and the ability to see all games on one page was two of the most important (if not the most important). Those two features are now missing.

    And why isn't it possible to archive finished games from the current games? I know they will be archived after 7 days, but if I lose a game by a terrible blunder (and that happens way too often), I like to archive that game asap and forget about it.

    On the plus side I like that 'My Games' now shows the remaining timebank. That is very helpfull. The opponent search function is also very nice. And it's easier to chose an archive now.

    I'd also like to be able to move games into the archive without having them linger for 7 days.

    Also, being able to sort on 'last move time' was important to me. Most of the time when I come to the site, what I want to see is the newest moves (the ones I haven't looked at yet). Now I have no way of determining which those are (unless I start clicking the links in the emails, which I don't want to have to do--usually I move the emails out of the way immediately and just treat them as a reminder to go to the site).
