    When you try to find a suitable opponent the only choices you have to narrow a search is their rating, on line now, and has a proflie or picture (absolutly no help).

    I suggest two aditons tools to narrow the search : sort my times moved ( once a day, week etc.) and if they are a subsciber. With these two addition features finding a player will be so much easier. Rec this post if you aggree.

    WHY would you need to choose a particular type of player - equivalent rating is understandable but the rest, huh?
    I also understand some people are snobbish about playing non-sub scumbags but it beats the hell out of me WHY.

    Non-subscribers can only play 6 games and everytime i challenge one it says ''sorry, the player you challenged is already playing the max amount of games.'' It would save me a lot of time if I knew who are subscribers and who aren't

    My other suggestion is also validated because I like to play people who move about as often as I. Sometimes I have to scroll though pages to find that person.

    You can set the rating limits in open invites, once you are passed the provisional stage; you can also set the times at the lowest which is 1 move per day with 0 timebank. Also, if you name the game in the open invites; something like "fast players" or "quick game" you would maybe get what you want.
    That's the quickest way to get a game going, I reckon.

    Btw, subscribers are the ones with the stars. [in case you didn't already know]

    for the sake of the non subscribers, because I remember it a hassle, on the page it should say games in progress for the players. It'd also help for people who want to avoid those who play 600 games and therefore won't move as fast against you.

    And maybe include moves this month. That will give you a better idea of how often they move, rather than the not so trustworthy pictures.

    Now you can always click on them to see this stuff too.

    And on side note, how about on the public games, it shows the moves made in the games. That way you dont have to randomly click, only to find a game gone 2 moves

    I like ramned's ideas but they need it on the search engine in 'find player'

    When i go looking for people to join my clan, I have to find online subscribers. If I could get a list of online subscribers, that would make my life here soooooooo much easier.

    RHP tends to be completely dead from I wake up untill lunch hour, even in week-ends. The reson is of course the time zones belongings.

    So I rather have opponents from the east side of my time zone to even this out. But nowhere I can see any information of from where the players come from. Information about their time zone would be greatly appreciated.

    ( "But we know from where they are? Look at their flag?" )

    Yes, but I often se people with the Chinese flag (as an example) at a player residing in the US. Flags represent their nationality, or where they play from, no one knows. The time zone information says a lot more when they're active, at my morning, at my evening or at my night, seen from my own time zone.

    I would also like to see my opponents (to be) time zone.

    Maybe they don't want you to know - can they be forced to reveal their time-zone fairly? Not too sure about that one.

    Time Zone is a rather neutral information. The same timezone as New York has a strip from Canada down to Argentine. No one knows the exact location, nor country.

    I see the political problem if a Talibani regime finds out that you have Internet at home in Afganistan. But the Talibani regime doesn't know if time zone is Russian, Pakistani or Mauritius.

    (I haven't double checked if I'm right about the connection country/timezone. Don't critisize me on that one, only of the idea itself.)
