I do understand that the first player to take a turn is not selected alphabetically, but once that turn is taken, in Jippd's phrasing, "from there it just works down the list and back up to the top". Correct me if I am wrong, but in all six of my games, that list has been sorted alphabetically by the game. Because of this, everyone always plays in the same order. Using my games as the example, I always play immediately after GenghisQuang and immediately before Vishas. That's the alphabetical order I was hoping to be able to scramble up in some manner. It's understandable that this wouldn't bother the majority of the folks who play here, since I'm guessing most people play at least some of their games with a wider variety of opponents than I do.
