    1) Please provide a option to have 1 day timebank and 3 day timebank. Currently, the timebank options starts from 7 days. I beg you provide such an option.

    2) There isn't any way to see the captured pieces in a game in which we are not involved in. Also, there isn't a way to see the timeout and timebank period of a game we are not involved in. Please make a way! πŸ˜‰

    Thanks Russ.

    1) You mean you will be providing a 3 day timebank option but not a 1 day timebank option?

    I move daily and I actually move mutiple times a day. Thus, any thing more than a 1 day timeout would not suit me.

    However, I would still not prefer 1 day timeout with no timebank as there maybe a odd day where for some XYZ reason I may not be able to move. Thus, I would like to have some timbank in my hands. And 1 day timebank would be more than enough for me.

    And I am sure there will be hundreds and thousands of other like me.

    2) Thanks a lot Russ. Looking forward to that!

    Any timeframe in which you plan to add these features?

    If I were Russ, the partiallity of #1 is decided between subscribers and non-subscribers. Giving the option to subscribers to give them even more value for their money, but let non-subscribers who only need to experience the feel of playing chess here without actually experiencing all the finest details.

    The six game limit already achieves your aim. You get people to subscribe by showing them what a fully functional interface can do, then tempting them with the option of playing clans, tournaments, sieges, or just more than six games at one time.

    How stupid that would be.
    Then subscribers would not be able to play non subs on equal terms....next you'll be saying only let subscribers use the analyse board. pah!

    I used to play a bunch of 1/0 games. Boy those were the days. I'd have 20 or so going at once.

    Anyway, I'm pretty sure the rewrite of the site involves a bunch of updates to viewing and analysing games. Your best bet is to visit the "new beta test signup" thread and pm a few of the testers to get the inside info.
