    1) sometimes, there is a little icon of a ticking clock next to my opponents name... I'm assuming it means quickfire tournament move made..but it's not displayed in the legend. What EXACTLY does it mean.

    2) why do sometimes when I click on reminders, the envelope goes away, and other times they don/t?

    the clock means there is less than 24 hours before the time out. So in a quickfire tournament that is instantly after the move was made.

    Maybe it's only used in tournaments with a 1 day time out period.

    The little clock works for all games and is the friendly little reminder that you have less than 24 hours to make a panicky move that will cost you the game. Or is that just me?
