    Would it not be useful to allow players to specifiy challange filters for:
    minimum Move Frequency
    range of days/move
    range of timebank period
    range of non-provisional rankings
    rated games only (Y/N)
    friendly games only (Y/N)
    Clan games only (Y/N)
    accept games from provisional players (Y/N)
    accept games from Subscribers only (Y/N)

    Now: I'm not in favour of all of these. Some are frankly mad. But just for discussions sake, I've included some ringers. Guess them if you like!


    Edit: the post time was 13:20 or so. Local time (and GMT) is 12:20. What time is RHP on anyway?

    i want to only accept challenges from players with the letter "x" in their name.

    p.s. if you look closely at the clock while playing on rhp you will notice the hours pass very fast. 1 hour lasts only a few minutes. days, weeks and even months can fly past.

    good ides!
    what are friendly games?
    and it'd be great to look for players who start (not) with 1. e4 ...
    and it's interesting to see (IN THE PROFILE???) the ratio # waiting games / # current games

    indeed: that's a good one I forgot about thire
    maximum number of games currently being played.

    you don't want to get caught up in one of these "I'll play 200 games at once" follies, that end up with hundereds of timeouts once it inevitably ends in tears.

    it is not inevitable to be timed out when playing lots of games - i have only been timed out once and it was my first ever game, but the tears may be inevitable :-)

    Do you remember this:
