E-mail notification

Is there some way to set notification e-mails on just the FIRST game an opponent moves in? Often, in tournaments, I get 4 e-mails at a time for moves made within a short period of time...

You mean that a "digest" (1 email for all moves per day) or max. 1 email per day would be more convenient for you ? Maybe I can add such an option in the future even if I'm not sure that many would use it. (?)

Just how do you propose that the FICGS software should know that any particular notification is the first in a sequence, that you have already read and responded to the previous notice?

Robert I recommend you configure your own email filters/folders etc to do whatever it is you desire.

Thibault, that would be great actually!

Don, All he has to do is check 'last logged in timestamp' if there is a 2nd e-mail after that time, don't send it! Doesn't matter if I read it, just that I have too many in my inbox without having come here to make a move!

Daniel, I have no idea how to configure a filter to accept 1 message of a certain subject, but not any others until the first is deleted... sounds way to complicated for gmail to attempt!

It's a bit more complicated than that isn't it? What if you have logged out before the second (or third or whatever notification)? If Thibault only checks your last login, he won't send it when it's actually the first of a new sequence. Sounds like a lot of extra work to satisfy one person.
