    I view My Games list by Oldest Move to ensure that I am aware of impending time outs. But when I make a move, RHP then brings up a game that is not my next Oldest Move game. It would be good if RHP brought up the next game in the same sequence as we view our games list.

    I just view my Games List as Least Timeout Remaining.

    Problem solved.

    Viewing by Oldest Move doesn't do this. What if you have a 7/7 game with an older move than a 3/7 game? Listing by Oldest Move won't necessarily show the games with the least timeout left first, depending on the game settings.

    Good idea. It so happens I only play 21/21 games. I don't usually visit rhp while traveling and it takes enough days out of the year that I would get into time trouble with 3/7 or 7/7. But I might switch to Least time remaining.

    BTW the go to next game function seems now to be working the way I suggested, finding the next oldest game.

    Maybe the Next Game Function sorts by the setting you have used in MyGames. Possible?

    I have found by trial and error the best way is to use "Least time remaining "with "My move" on the "Game status filter"
    I have given up trying to get Russ to do any thing about the short comings on this issue
