I wonder if we could raise the limit of votes we get for best games. I think that would enhance the best game dept. At present the top game has 3 votes. I like to look at the games of opponents, not even counting my games, and give credit where due. I saw some comments on game #44774, I looked at it and tried to vote best game and it said I can't vote anymore. Thib, can you think about this?

Not so easy to find the right balance for this, depends on the number of votes per month, the number of voting players and so on... Now the total number of votes taken in account is 50, with 5 per player, the oldest votes are deleted when there are new ones.
What numbers do you suggest?

A player should be able to vote for as many games as s/he wishes but only once per game.

Thib, I've tried to think about this. First, I believe we should have all the votes we need to use. Second, I don't think poker games need to be voted on for best game. If we could get this more popular we could add some interesting ideas.
I would like to see a "Featured Game", both in Go and Chess to come out every 2 months with the rating cycle. This would be the game voted on the most by players. Ideally, it could be annotated by the victor.
The games here are of the highest quality. Even GM's could benefit from some of the novelties that have come up here. It would also give people incentive to be honored with being the feature game.
