    I've been active for a while as a scrounging non-sub to check what this and other sites have to offer in terms of features etc. before deciding to pay my hard earned cash to anyone in particular. It's a toss up for the moment between RHP and www.letsplaychess.com and although their interface is a nightmare to get used to they have a useful tool showing you what the result of a game will mean for your ratings - RHP is better in every other respect - will you be introducing something similar? Perhaps something that would show up when you hover over an open invite? Is it possible at all?

    Consider using Firefox as your web browser. There are several features that do what you are asking and more. It turns RHP into a fantastic wealth of info at the click of a button.

    ---------------------------------------

    Here is a firefox "starter kit".

    1 http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

    Firefox

    2 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/190

    Linkification

    3 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748

    Greasemonkey

    4 http://members.shaw.ca/ouroboros/RHP/

    (These are the RHP ones... don't get the one that hides your pieces. Read careful!)

    5 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1122

    Tab Mix

    6 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1368?id=1368&vid=7020

    Colorful Tabs

    7 https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1941

    Hyperwords


    Expand from there, be sure to figure out how to customize to your liking, lots of options.

    That's a bummer. Search for firefox addons and try to find a good one that is work related. With any luck, you can talk with the IT guy and have a reasonable excuse for needing Firefox.

    Don't play from home at all?

    So, educate me, here. (Always a dangerous requesst, I know! )

    I'm using firefox and I installed #2 and #3 on your list. When I went to #4 (quoted above), it gave me a list of scripts I could copy. What do I do with those scripts to "install" the function?

    Many thanks!

    :-)

    You can safely add most, but avoid the one that says Hide Pieces or Blind Fold. That one is for people that play chess with no board at all by the list of moves.

    All the rest just install, they are safe and you may not even notice them until you visit parts of the site you've never seen before.

    Those are the important ones for RHP that work in conjunction with Greasemonkey giving info and saving info and adding nice little features.

    The descriptions are not the best I feel, and I don't even realize what they were doing until I log in here with another web browser and notice things are missing.

    Hope that helps.

    Click on the blue links on the right of the screen. Then a little pop-up will appear and after 3 or 4 seconds, you'll be able to click on install.

    That's it.

    Ah, it's that "after 3 or 4 seconds" that I missed.
