    It would be great to be able to search your archive by end type, called Game State in the info box. I'd like to search for games ended by discovered mate for Ravello's thread, and being able to return only games which ended in checkmate would narrow down the search.

    I heartily agree. This suggestion is one of many enhancements to the database features that would greatly improve this site.

    If you, like me, have exported your finished games into Chessbase you can use the conditional search to find just games that ended in discovered mate. Or ones that contained promotion, or ones that end with a pawn move. What you can do is pretty much endless.

    I'm not a Chessbase guy, but I do use a chess database for archiving my games. So I know just what you mean!
