1) A reliability rating of sorts. I find that many players pseudo-quit (defined here as quitting playing without leaving the screen, i.e. letting time run out instead) or intentionally "disconnect" upon reaching a lost position, which hurts the game IMO. As such I would like to see a reliability rating system of some sort implemented, one in which players could a) see how reliable players are in this regard, or b) allowing players - maybe limited to VIP to promote the VIP? - to filter out other players with low reliability in this regard. Related, a limit on draw requests would perhaps be nice to avoid those (rare) players who choose to spam the draw button.
2) A choice of a more open game choice spread mechanism. For example, one player might be willing to play anywhere between a 1.0 min game up to a 3+2 min game between a certain range of players, while another player might be looking to play a 3+2 up to a 10 min game - maybe including 960 - with another rating range of players. It would be nice to have this option available - again maybe as a VIP feature - to make it easier to find a game.
Related to 2), having the option to limiting those games viewable to those within a chosen range (excluding regular or 960 if one so desired) would also be nice, and would cut down on mis-clicks/mis-choices of chosen games, i.e. accidentally choosing a game that one did not want due to the quick shuffling of the game-choice screen. As someone who plays 960 exclusively, I find that many people quit before starting play, and suspect that many of those are misclicks due to the quick shuffling of the seek screen which resulted in them choosing my game instead of the one that was in that slot a second ago.
Related, it might also be wise to leave the "Removed" seeks up a little longer - and perhaps clear them from the screen all together at a specific interval, maybe 5 secs or so, also in order to prevent people from accidentally joining games they would otherwise not want to play.
Otherwise, excellent site. My thanks and best wishes to all of you going forward .
Oh, one more thing. I hope you will consider re-allowing all chat room participants to post links unless there is a regular/widespread spam problem in a particular room. I think this would encourage community and communication for the (majority?) of slow-moving chat rooms where spam is not a genuine regular concern and where links would help in promoting discourse among the participants.
Edit: One more suggestion, put a link to the forum in the game site itself. I suspect more people would use these forums if it was obvious that said forums existed. Doing so might also contribute to loyalty & community among ChessCube users...
