    I think it would help this site to have feedback for players, similar to ebay. I would like to see feedback ratings of players in categories that might help me pick opponents. Example categories might include:

    * sportsmanship
    * times out vacationers

    I only have time for very few games, and it is frustrating to get into a game with someone who is immature, or who times me out while on vacation. I think this is a great chess site, but there are a large number of rude and inconsiderate users.

    A feedback feature would help me improve my experiences on this site. I think that it would likely lead to better behavior in general, as most users would want better ratings.

    In commenting on this suggestion, please keep in mind that this feature must be fairly simple to implement and maintain in order to make it worth the time of the site operators.

    I believe that adding this feature in a way that is useful could help increase the overall playing experience on this site, and lead to an increase in subscriptions.

    [BTW, I am a former subscriber, but only have time for 2-3 games at a time.]

    There are enough slagging off threads.

    Maybe we could also have a category for "signs up for games and then goes on vacation". Then I could avoid opponents who won't complete their games on time and no one will get upset when they get timed out while sipping margaritas in Tijuana.

    Good idea but sore losers could be insulting towards their victors
