Put in a "skip this game for now" button that shows up when you click "go to next active game", so that if you hit a game you want to skip for a bit, it won't show unless you hit My Games or there are less than 2 hours (4 hours.. even 12hours) left to play the game.
This will improve the following aspects of the site:
I know this was suggested before. I always thought it would be a nice feature, but it never was a HUGE big deal until this new Training program came about. PLEASE move this suggestion up in the priority list!
Now, a lot of people have a real reason to want to skip a game (they are waiting for classroom input).
It is particularly an issue for premiums, who play lots of games. Its a lot quicker to just click on "next game" than to have to hit "My games" each time. Also, I have several times clicked on "begin turn" without thinking ... when I really needed to wait.
The biggest problem is that, by the same token, one could forget a game. This is why I suggested a "timer" feature. I said 2 hours, but for that matter, it could even automatically reset when 12 hours is up. And/or when you log off.
ALSO --- without clicking on the old link, there are LOTS of reasons people might want to skip a game.
Some mentioned have been:
-wanting to play games with little thought or time required before long turns
-wanting to play 2 player (semi-real time perhaps) games before others
-delaying turns because you know someone is on vacation or will have hard time returning and you want to help ensure they don't miss.
-"superstition" (feeling unlucky in a particular game)
-wanting to play freestyle before sequential games
