    It seems the white timer symbols indicating less than 24 hours to move only appear after the per move time has exhausted upon entering the timebank...

    For example, I just saw one appear 5 mins ago, but the timebank indicates .64 days (less than 24 hours)...

    Wouldn't it be better if it appeared when the combined total of per move time plus remaining timebank

    It would be better if they put the time remaining (for all games) instead of some symbol for the ones close to time-out.

    I'll agree with that.

    The 'info' link allows you to see the timebank details for a game - and the games page shows when the last move was, but until you actually visit the page you can't 'at-a-glance' tell which games need more urgent attention.

    As an aside, it would also be nice to have the option for changing the priority used for what constitutes the 'next waiting game' (or when scrolling through games using the 'skip this game for now' link). This currently (I think), goes through using the last move date, but I'd like to use the amount of time remaining as an indicator of the 'next game'.

    Wow.
    It was that quick and that simple.

    For anyone else who wants the greasemonkey magic do this ...

    1) Get firefox (if you only do this you will not regret it - but it gets better)
    2) Install greasemonkey (https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/748)
    3) Get the user scripts that ouroboros has made - (http://members.shaw.ca/ouroboros/RHP/) - pick the ones that appeal and away you go.
    4) smile a lot.

    Firefox is an alternaive web browser from Mozilla and it is widely respected to be superiour and safer than internet explorer - it features tabbed browsing, in-built pop-up blocker and plenty of "extensions" that you can use to customise.

    Greasemonkey is one of thses extensions - it enables you to install custom written scripts that can enhance particular websites. Ouroboros has created a whole bunch of these scripts that work with this site and do loads of funky things - Show time remaining on "Your Games" page, enhancements to forum posting, and many more.

    You need to install Firefox first, then install the greasemonkey extension before you can pop along to ouroboros' page and get the scripts. See orangutan's post above for the links.

    Oh yeah, and then enjoy all the fun that Firefox has to offer. There are many more extensions to enjoy if you want - I can highly recommend Linkification, forecastfox and Foxytunes too.

    🙂
