    This is another irritation to me, those stupid little envelopes that we click on to notify our opponents that time is running out. Who cares? I used to do it all the time, and then it got to be such a hassle particularly because when I send a message-notification to the opponent, say on Page 2, it defaults back to Page 1, and then I have the hassle of clicking on to Page 2 or 3. It takes too much bloody time! After awhile I figured "the hell with this." I don't bother to send those stupid little envelope-reminders. Either my opponents wants to play or don't (and if circumstances delay them--too bad!).
    Fix this please.
    Thanks,

    I'd like to see them disappear altogether, I'm clumsy and I'm forever clicking them by accident! Does anybody playing here regularly really need reminding?

    Agree.

    I never remind my opponents. I never read reminders.
    It is the players own responsability to keep track of his/hers thinking times, not mine.

    The only usage for the reminder envelope is that when I see one I know that it is soon time to skull him out if he doesn't move in his game.

    Reminders appear after 3 days, no matter what time controls you are playing. It's most annoying when you're playing 21/21.

    Having said that, I have 1 friend who doesn't play regularly and they are handy to remind him that it's his move. Other than that, I never send them, nor notice them on the My Games page.

    If you don't want to use the feature, then don't.

    Which is better? A feature that's there and you can choose not to use, or ...?

    If you go to site setting you can make all your games appear on one page so you won't have that problem.

    That's missing the point. It's a bloody hassle. To answer your lame question: A "feature" that's "there" and is STUPID is definitely not USEFUL.
