    Is it possible to display the game time parameters in the game window?? It's a bit of a pain to have to go to the my games page everytime to check how long is left until a timeout.

    long time ago there was a gameinfo page where you got all revelant info for the game. it could be reincluded in the gamehistory 😉
    well, it's always a tradeoff between adding nice features and additional info and bandwith costs. I think it is very important to see on the playgame page that I am just eating my timebank or that my opponent can claim T/O.

    i know little about this stuff,
    but i do remember russ being very touchy about adding some things to pages, things that make the pages bigger to download, i think this might be one of them.
    if so, then it would slow us down for every move, and increase his upload time too.

    This shouldn't be a problem. I'll mention it to him when he returns. I think it would be nice to have the timebank and timeout info on the game page.

    I'm sure you know it much better then me, but why don't you reduce the playgame page and provide much more info in the gamhistory? If I want to know how much tiem is left in this game and who started it and what was already said and when what move was made I have a look at this gameinfo. On the playgame I really just can play...
    I mean t/o and tb are very important and good infos (like movespeed and rating related things), but I do not have to see it on every single page.
