    This is exactly the type of thing the timebank is for: all that is needed is a minimum timebank setting in your challenge settings. Russ has said he'll look into the challenge filters next time he's working on the RHP code, so fingers crossed.

    Good idea - although I rarely accept open invites and play mainly clan and tournaments.

    In the past, I also took games 1dm/0dtb and then had to sit on this site all day (actually, now that I think about it, is that a problem? )
