    just an idea.
    It would be nice to be able to group My Games into separate personalized subgroups (like the filter function). But....I've often thought it would be VERY nice and convenient to be able to separate the games I feel I'm losing from the games I feel I'm winning. Albeit I'm not playing 100's of games at the moment. I do believe, however that this might be a well-loved function for those of us playing many many games at once.

    or maybe we could just assign each of our games its own color (the little box).

    The major downfall I see with this is that it will cause people to lollygag even more in games where they can't win. I don't know about the rest of you but people who drag out losing games are a major pet peeve of mine. And while they're not breaking any rules, I don't think this kind of stuff should be encouraged.

    I've read this type of gripe before...

    There is a certain type of person who will delay moving into a mate-in-1 until the last second! You can't control that. But, there are about 5 games I'm "losing" right now where I still believe I have a fighting chance. They're far from over. If I was able to group them into a sub-category I would be paying more attention to working them out diligently and giving a good fight!

    You know, these personalized sub-categories I speak of in the "My Games" are personalized, so you could divide your games up by ECO code (opening) if you wanted. I got 5 Caro-Kann games going right now (pity me), and it would be cool to have them grouped together in my list....along with all my Lopez's. imho steely
