    when I look at the public games of a user,
    black is always up and white down. It would be
    much better, if you can see it from the view of
    the user.
    The names of the players are listed exactly
    the otherway around. I think, it would be the
    easiest, to remove the the name of the current user
    and list only the opponent's name, his online flag
    and the rating.
    The flag whose turn it is and the online flag
    have the same color. It would be easier,
    if they were different.

    I use this view quite often, when choosing open invites.
    The ratings are sometimes very -- astonishing.
    And I want an opponent, not a victim ;-)

    There's a "Flip Board" option on the right when viewing any game.

    Why? And why can't you just use the existing flip board function?

    no, that's not what I wanted.
    If you click to the public games of a player, there you can
    see all his games seen from the white side,
    but to flip the view you have to open a special game.
    I would like to see all the games from the view of
    this special player.

    Example: Some player, lets call him afx, adds an open
    invite and you want to see, how he is playing, you will
    click on the user and view his public games.
    use http://www.redhotpawn.com/core/viewpublicgames.php?isminiboard=on&uid=352241 for example.
    there you can see a lot of games, but with every picture you
    have to read the names of the players to see, who is who.

    I see what you're saying - it's the 'mini-board' feature of the public games search.
    If you search for a particular users games, then you have to note who's playing which colour in each board to see the game from the chosen users perspective.

    What happens when you specify two players in the search? Would the first play be the 'chosen one'?
