    Any chance of introducing a further sort option based on time available EXCLUDING timebank? The current option only gives a sort based on total time available before timeout.

    Apologies if this has been brought up before.

    I dunno, I've been pulling for this for a while now. And also on the RHP android app it would be fantastic.

    It doesn't help me out much if I can't distinguish between having 10 minutes before timebank and having 2 days before timebank. At least we have the colored clocks to assist in figuring this out, on the app, there's no indication whatsoever.

    It has been mentioned before and quite recently. I know I had some input but I can't find the thread,even by going to search forums and putting my name in.
    I think the thread must've been removed.
    I agree it would be useful to be able to list games by time available without including timebank.

    This request comes up often in threads in this forum. Let's make this a voting thread, hopefully we'll get a high enough thumb-count to get some attention. I vote for having a facility to sort by "time remaining excluding timebank".

    I have raised this on many occasions
    The current system gives a lopsided listing
    It should be
    Time remaining
    Time remaining + time bank
    Time bank

    New sort options added, as requested.

    There will be a lag on the app though, not so easy to quickly patch that.

    Unfortunately this still does not work
    Waiting should be the max time remaining not zero

    Using the new timeout remaining returns the following list
    Waiting
    8d07h54m
    8d01h55m
    8d07h53m
    11d03h04m
    waiting
    13d16h48m
    That can't be right ?

    My list is similar with just games 2 and 3 reversed under the filters my move, least time remaining.
    Both games have the same timebank remaining.

    Can you look again at this? The sorting was previously rounded to days...so that explains the results you experienced.

    it still needs " waiting " to be at max time that will sort it out

    It's now more inaccurate than it was before under my moves, least time remaining.

    Try " least timeout remaining " it is nearly right and if Russ sorts out the " waiting " problem the listing should be correct
