    I would like to make the icons on the menu smaller 'My Games', 'New Game', 'Open Invites', etc. They seem to take a while to load. Also, get rid of the game previews on the front page.

    Add your "My Games" page to your favorites... I can't remember the last time I even used the front page.

    As for the slow modem... replace it.

    Go to 'My settings' and select all your games for view. That turns off the game previews.

    I'd second an option for smaller icons (or just a text menu): on 800x600 resolution (which I occasionally use), even a small board doesnt really fit the screen.

    www.chessatwork.com runs with no 'hot icons' at all.
    I could make it an option for RHP too, if that is what people want.

    The images should be cached by your browser though, so it should not be causing you too many problems.

    I see what you mean: nice. The big icons are gone, but everything needed is still there.

    One might suggest that the 'chess@work' logo be recast horizontally to take up less vertical height, reducing the problem with low screen resolutions. But that's only a small issue, only of small benifit, and probably not worth devoting any time to.

    I'll get both flags up there tomorrow.

    I will try to make an effort to fill in the missing flags soon - but as it stands, I'll just get the any uploaded that people tell me are missing.
