    This is a kind of "correspondence chess" site, so it's normal and expected that people take some days between moves.

    We could introduce a new profile stat. - we could calculate the average moves per day for each person. This might help.

    how about average number of days taken per game? (only include the ones not lost on timeout)

    and the pecentage of games lost on timeout.


    (some people run hudreds of games and make loads of moves each day, but a game with them will be slow. others run just a few games, but play several times per day)

    hey Russ,
    this sounds perfect 🙂 😀 🙂
    A long time ago I proposed this and other things 😉
    But actually we have something very similar: we can set our move frequency-information. But of course this would be much better!

    This is a brilliant idea. Then everyone who falls over a certain number can be branded with a big, flashing, red warning label. Everytime you try to initiate or accept a game against such a person, a seperate pop up menu would show up that says:

    WARNING! You are about to begin a game against a known SLOW PLAYER. Do you wish to continue?

    Then you could click "continue" or "delete game". Of course either choice would delete the game. Slow movers would, in effect, be banished from the site. Brilliant! I love it! 😀
