    It was a very bad idea to make you check individually on time remaining for every game.
    It was bad to round off time remaining to the nearest day.
    I am not confident that I can devise a system to play my remaining games under this change without many timeouts.

    I'm not surprised with 713 games in progress!

    I agree, the update is horrible. One used to be able to glance at "My games" and know which games required attention. Now it is hard work to figure out what is going on.

    What was wrong with using a simple numeric format (number of days with 2 decimal places) for timeout/timebank columns? "Out of time" "n days" "n hours" "n minutes", "n second", "depleted" etc are just not easy on the eyes or the brain.

    I can live with the other changes, but those columns are really, really nasty.
