Skip feature

Is there a skip feature? When a move is entered on one game, it's great to hit "next" and move to the next game. Sometimes, I want to "skip" a game, and go to the next without making a move. So far it seems I must go back out to "games" and come back in to a different game. tx-Matt

That's a great idea, thanks :) .. I just implemented it, soon updated.

I usually have to go to messages to make sure I am attending the game with the greatest amount of time pressure. Would 'skip' go to the next game with the shortest amount of time left?

next / skip

(Next) & (Skip) go to the game where your opponent played most recently. In my opinion, it's easier to use "My games" to find the one with the most time pressure.

Skip Feature - thank U

Could the (download) button be duplicated next to the new "skip" button. This would save the constant need to scroll / wheel down the page.

Also having pressed "send", why the need to press the "next" button.

Either go straight to the next game or make it part of the prefences so the choice is ours. Some sites do the later. I am the web master on two sites (not related to games or chess), so I imagine the above could be done.

Keep up the good work Thibault, many thanks for a great site!

Next & Download

Hello Graham.

About the (Next) link, the page 'move_send' guarantees to the player the move has actually been sent. It can avoid some complaints. Anyway to skip this page is not easy, you could be redirected to the next game automatically after this page but it could be a bit disagreeable.

Do you use (download) after each move ? .. Just trying to make this part of the window quite 'light'.

Thanks for suggestions.

I do not use "download" after each move. But I do often use "download". It is the scrolling / wheeling up & down the screen that seems unnecessary.

Or am I just plane lazy!! :-)

Hi Thibault, The skip feature is nice but it only skips the game one time. If there are 10 games waiting to be played, skip must be used many times if I want to leave that particular game until last. Is there a way to put the skipped game last in the list?

Hmm.. so many ways to implement it. If you use it quite often, I suppose that "My games" page is a faster way to find the good game. (I'm lazy too :))
