    I know I brought this topic up before but I can't seem to find that thread so here goes......I'd like to see a skip games feature beside each game on the My Games page. I currently have 160+ games ongoing (too many to be sure but I'm addicted to the tournaments).

    The Zeta tourney started a couple of days ago. I'd like to wait a few days to start theses games so I can finish off a bunch of current games. However now I have to skip my way through theses games or return each time to My Games screen and select a game. Perhaps I'm missing a shortcut ??!! If the skip games feature was available I could preselect any number of games I'd like to skip and focus on my personal preferences. Any thoughts ??!!

    For the time being, why not do this :

    View all your games on the 'My Games' page.

    If you are using MS IE, hold down the shift key when you click a game. It will then open in a new window. Make your move, close the window.

    I browse the web with my finger almost permanently on the shift key so I don't need to keep reloading pages - it is easy to forget that others don't know this trick!

    I have people who want to join my clan. How do they go about doing this. My site doesn't have a "Request Clan Membership" link.

    Yes but it doesn't refresh the 'my games' page at the next board so you still have to reload it every so often to keep it current.

    Not sure about IE.

    However in Mozilla - Right Click then "Open Link In New Window" or "Open Link In New Tab".

    Been doing this for ages...

    Right click it and hit "N" on the keyboard... no waiting for the pop-up menue.

    Works as well as shift... that's a new one to me.

    Oh my gosh, you all are my new rhp heroes! Always wondered if there was a way not to do it the long way, just never thought to ask. Thanks! 😵

    for me all these things are just workarounds: I think it would make sense to be able to set all the skip (or whatever) in my settings,
    so long

    Excellent....works well.....thanks for the tip !! By the way, "for the time being" does that mean you are working on a skip option 🙂


    Any more shortcuts and quirky things out there that people might want to share, either working your way around the RHP site or the web !??
