    Would it be possible to be able to elect *NOT* to receive move reminders. I know this irritates a lot of players as they prefer to manage their games without being prompted, whilst others are happy to receive them as it prevents them from timing out.

    Perhaps there could be 3 settings, standard as is, reminders appear only once time bank is exhausted, or reminders never appear. This will allow everyone to find a setting that suits them.

    With 1 more setting, you get my rec... Reminders only appear once the timebank is being used.

    Furthermore my email inbox does not need to know that my open invite has been accepted, this game has been deleted or that a draw I offered has been accepted.

    Seeing 18 new messages in my email gives me tingle of excitement that some long lost friend has written to me. Only to find most of the messages are from rhp, telling me stuff I've already noticed from "my games" page, a page which, sad sod that I am, I check far more often than my email.

    I would like to be able to turn them all off.

    Move reminders, accepted draws, accepted open invites, tournament has started..........

    That would save me having to filter them all to my trash....

    I've just come to this forum wanting to request the same thing, so I'll add my voice here. Open invites I'll catch on the site. As for reminders, they just clog up my inbox if I go away for a couple of days.

    If people get so shirty about receiving reminders perhaps disabling them ought to be an option?

    I have to click that 'Remind' button as soon as it appears because I will also click that 'Skull' button as soon as it appears but at least I will have reminded you to move while you still could.

    Chalk up one more vote for removing the reminders. They just add clutter. Everyone knows what they are getting into with the time limits clearly identified on every game, tournament, etc. Players should police themselves... it's your responsibility to mind your own time.
