The details of this suggestion are getting a little vague in my mind because so many variations on a theme have been proposed, what with multiple topics merging and all. Should we be referring to what is now the first post? The "Skip game" checkbox isn't bad, but I like the idea of a list of game links to all the games that you could play now. Some information about the game could be displayed, or we could just rely on that addon that shows information about a game when you hover over a link.

I think having a link to every single game that is up would take up quite a bit of room. Especially for players in many games. Could you imagine if this was there when Highlander has 1200 active games?

Good lord, 1200? How do you play that many at once and not deadbeat? Even if you push your luck and miss two turns for every one you play, that's still 1200 turns in 72 hours, or 3.6 minutes per turn ... oh wait, if you play in 8 player games, your turn doesn't come up as often, but still,...
Well, anyway, perhaps the list could be in a scrollable window.

Well, i think what the original suggestion was, and the one lack is working on, is that this link will skip the game, say Game 345474, and go to your next one. Then it will keep going down your list of active games, leaving that 1 you skipped.

I dare say the extra click is less of a problem than the extra page load.

But you'll have to do some extra clicking to select which game you want to skip and stuff.

Still, this seems really pointless.

This is a great addon. For anybody who plays lots of games and wishes to skip one it makes perfect sense. Weather it is a freestyle game you are waiting on or a team game. Having to jump out every time and go back to the main list because jump to the next game takes you to the one you want to skip. 100% well done!
