    Just looking at the open invites list again and it looks like some people use it to post funny comments up and see how long they will stay.

    Or, currently there is a game posted that can't be accepted by any player on this site but if it was accepted the poster loses first go.

    It's probably been mentioned before by how about only showing games you can actually accept on this page.

    I would like to see all challenges.
    But with a checkbox as an option, yes, it would be fine to see only those I can actually accept.

    I don't know about yours but mine only shows a link to accept the ones I qualify to accept.

    That is true but you also can get a page full of games, many of which are impossible for anyone to accept. Just seems untidy to me.

    As a lowrated player I have to go to the bottom of the second screen before I see an "accept game offer". I notice some idiot with a rating of 888 has two invites, >2400 and < 500. And there's always somebody putting up half a dozen games at a time. I would definitely be in favour of displaying only qualified games, even as an option.

    It means my post came up twice so I deleted the second one. Is there a way to remove the whole post entry?

    One simple solution of this problem is to reverse the sorting order of the screen. If the newest invitations always is on the top then the impossible ones (like those wanting to play with players with a rating over 2500 or under 300) comes at the bottom.

    This you cant yourself, we have to ask Russ or Chris to do this - reverse the order.

    Great idea - and so simple to implement too, doesn't need a huge program change or anything. Now, how can we make it happen?

    Order reversed. The open invites will be automatically cleared up after a period soon. (No, really, they will! )

    Thank you, Russ.

    Let's call this "the Order of Fabian".
