    If I place an open invite how long does it stay offered for?

    Secondly, is there a way of influencing how long my invititation stays open?

    1 - It stays on forever, or until Russ (or his side kick(s) or yourself) deletes them or untill it gets accepted offcourse.
    2 - Yes, you can delete them yourself, although not (yet?) automatically.

    A bit obvious answers I see...

    If what you say is true then I believe that there are a group of players who accept games and then delete them straight away.

    I have offered invites before that have disappeared without being taken.

    Assuming you are using a valid email address here, whenever an open invite is accepted by someone, the site sends you a notification of this and gives the username of the individual who accepted the game.

    yes, but some of us live here and only visit of email once a week or so.

    I think a PM would be a much better method of communication for this sort of thing.

    I discovered this the hard way when I first joined the site. It's a complete mystery why people do this.

    PM would only work if they choose to send you a message, which they won't because they're not nice in the first place by doing this. The e-mail is automatically generated. I don't think there's any way of automatically generating a PM.
