Yeah, this has been suggested.
First off, just in principle, you shouldn't have to use an add-on to fix something that's been broken by the site.
Second, I'm on the road, using my laptop. I don't keep WTG on my laptop because it really slows things down. Don't know if it sucks too much bandwidth or too much memory or what -- I'm not a techie -- but there is a noticeable delay when running WTG, so I do keep it on my home computer but not on my laptop. I drive for a living, so I'm often away from home four or five days at a time, and although the bulk of my tourney updating is done at home, I try to do as much as possible on the road as well. I need to be able to access these games on the road.
Third, I have currently 20 active tournaments. I probably create something like 50 or 60 new games a week, plus of course many that remain active for long periods. It's hard to give an exact number, but there's easily 250 active games right now between my various tournaments. That's a lot of time updating WTG. What's worse, WTG doesn't automatically drop games that finish, so you have to manually go through and drop them afterward or the list will soon become unmanageable. More time lost.
So yeah, your suggestion will probably work for someone who has 3 or 4 tourneys on the go, but for someone with 20 it's just not practical. They need to fix Game Finder. Period.
