    to the right of the players name there should be a skull if they have ever timed out and if they have timed out more than once to the right of this skull should be the number of times. this would tell someone looking at open invites whether to choose someone who quits alot and it would tell a clan leader what player might be asked to do better or be dropped from the clan and tell a someone who is considering a challenge from an individual player whether to challenge or decline.

    perhaps instead of a total number of timeouts next to the skull it should be as they do at gameknot..to use a percentage for timeouts.

    Clicking on a persons profile already reveals their loss from timeout (both percentage and actual number) This is listed under the rated games stats where it shows losses/wins and draws for the rated games categorized by colors.

    sure..that is what we want more of...click, click and more click. why not just put it right on the page where you need to see it. if the site can put in colored stars that turn red too show how many moves you make everywhere they can certainly put your failure to play right up front without a click, click, and click back..


    ...i really think the timeout rate should be everyplace a player's name appears...

    Great idea, put every factoid about every player right next to their name. How about all our games on one page too? How about every forum post ever next to our name? How about ALL the info from RHP right next to our name and we'll never click again!

    Feck I had to click twice to recommend that post, then a third time to quote it and then a fourth click to preview, a fifth click to post the preview so I could see it was OK, a seventh click to unpost the preview box once I was happy and then an eighth click to post the previewed post.

    Far too many clicks!!

    it is one thing to throw the paper badly and miss the driveway...it is another to soak it in the sour milk of scorn and then toss it onto the roof.

    lol...
    There's nothing wrong with your suggestion, to some of us such factors may well be important when choosing an opponent... others may feel they're already faced with an overload of facts and figures and perhaps are happy to give anyone a shot at a game without weighing up the factors others consider important..stick with it

    It would only really matter to nonsubs who have one or more of their 6 games tied up while they're waiting. The rest of us can just collect the win and the rating points and not get too fussed about it.

    I think there would be a place for a flashing icon showing someone has a skull on show, just a flashing anything to indicate 'you should have a look'...a game you can kill on the spot. I'm dreadful for checking over games out of time, it's a case of the system timing folk out and not myself. We have an 'urgent games' folder but nothing giving an immediate indication upon sign in, whether that's our own timebank finished but more so the oppositions as we do go straight to 'my move' anyway. Let's face it, there are presently many dozens of folk tentatively, some nervously so lol, thinking they're getting less and less points with each passing hour as others beat them to it.. waiting their turn to time out our poor old ( still resident non ) GM Norbert ..and then the likes of myself who'll eventually check and see if I've missed an earlier opportunity with him...to some folk it's mighty important and they at least won't care about such an option as they've all the options covered anyhow

    at gameknot when i go to the open games list i always have to click on the person's name to get to their private page to see their percentage on timing out ( i don't take games from anyone who times out more than ten percent ) then by the time i get back to the open games list that possible game has been taken by someone else ( their open games list moves very fast since they have so many more players ) just listing the timeout percentage both on the open games list and on the clan member list tell both a seeker of a game and a clan leader right away whether to choose the game or that player when they first making that choice.

    "Name Hover" option would be neat perhaps.

    We can customize what we want to see when we hover over a name.

    You'd pick time-out info, and some other stuff.

    I'd pick profile image and text.

    the black panther party is a party of nasty racist socialists. if you think that i have such a "party" then you are seriously mistaken.
