    I would like to be able to recommend games exactly like I can recommend forum posts.

    There are some great games going on out there - but finding them is like finding a needle in a haystack.

    Got my rec, too. Just to make it more interesting for Russ or Chrismo to implement, how about weighting game recs by one or more of:
    1) Recommender's rating / 500 (or some other factor)
    2) Number of recommender's own games rec'd
    3) Number of other recommended games that were first found by recommender and that have multiple rec's

    I recommend that everyone who likes flexmore's idea recommend flexmore's post at the beginning of this thread. With 4 more recommends, it will be the most recommended thread with 12.

    So show your support and recommend recommending games.

    It's a great idea and deserves support. Click on the "Recommend" link just below the first post.

    (Sorry, only one recommend per star member. )

    2 implementations of this might be:
    recommending game positions in the analyse board screen. We could then scroll forward to see how the exciting position progressed to a less exciting outcome, or backward to see where the hell it came from.
    ... or ....
    simply recommending the whole game.

    i think that the first option would more clearly define the recommended element.
    i also think players should be able to recommend their own games/positions.
