    i don't think you should have the min/max rating settings tucked away in advanced settings - no-one seems able to find them and the open invites are full of games where people have instead written "min 1300" etc

    also maybe you should add opportunity to specify that players must have min move frequency to take the game as that seems to be requested a lot also

    Its not exactly hidden away

    If people can't be bothered to use them then thats their tough titty.

    Provisional players can't use the option and its mainly them that are putting the Min 1300 etc in the game name etc.

    As for minimum move how do you deal with someone who doesn't comply?

    What if I want to make my 5 moves in the morning but the opponent wants to in the aftermoon or evening?

    Do we then stipulate that we want the minimum moves in the morning/afternoon. Does that then become GMT or the timezone for your opponent?

    So many variables, so a non starter IMHO.

    you don't have to make a required frequency of moves but surely it is better to play opponents that you are as suited to as possible - i like to play fast so find myself deleting 1 move a day etc opponents if they take up my game

    Yet you say in your blurb

    Started playing chess in Apr 08 so still very much learning.

    Don't mind anyone challenging me. Prefer to play 1 day per move, 3 day timebank to keep game moving along at reasonable pace. Will claim all time-outs as I want to play chess not wait around.


    Just play more games, set 1/0 challenges as generally players who accept them will play several moves per day.

    1/3 is fast enough - there is always the odd time where you don't want to play for a few days so no timebank is a bit too extreme for me

    doesnt sound like u like the idea so i will leave it at that - cheers
