    One solution would be to put a red number in parentheses beside Stairs on the main menu, when there are stairs on your list available. Clicking the red number could take you directly to your personal list of stairs. The red number could disappear if it becomes unavailable.

    Just a thought..

    Hi you guys!

    If you are looking a good backgammon match, please send a challenge to me in slow cube stairs! I have no that type of match there just now.

    I have added the way to see if you have any current stairs in which you can challenge up above in the board header.

    If you go to the main stairs page, and click on "Show your stairs only" - the ones in bold means there is someone there that you can challenge.

    If you have started a retirement on a stair, and you win the game that was still open, will you still move up a rung? I assume so, just wondering.

    Lets try to get back to topic.

    Czuch - Good sugestion - have the ability to choose "retirement" for all stairs at once. (Then in turn, be able to come out of "retirement" for all stairs at once also would be good.

    Czuch: It has several meanings. In British it's primarily drunk, in American it's primarily angry. But take off the 'ed' and a whole new bunch of meanings comes into play. Hence it being bannable if your name is Stevie and you use it, and other words, too often.

    Perhaps after a post has been deleted then the posts about the post can be deleted too. Then people won't write posts about the post about the post or post about posts that aren't the post. And there certainly won't be any call for posts about the posts about the posts.

    Just a thought.

    crosseyed: It would be very difficult to time out if you played several times a day

    But it does depend somewhat on when you play, if you make a move and go offline right away, and I move right after this.... but you also get 3 hours added to your time every move, so several moves a day should leave you with more time, notless.

    Maybe its just me... or the "retirement" isnt really for vacation, but it took me half an hour to retire in all my stairs. (click stairs, click to my stairs, click to a specific one, scroll down,click to retire,scroll down,click to be sure,go to main stairs, go to my stairs only, find new game, and repeat)

    Does it make sense to be able to start retirement in all our stairs at once? Or at least streamline the process so after we retire one, it takes us back to our own stairs page?

    Subject: Re: Time-out.
    crosseyed: Yea, you got to watch the Fischer clock games - I usually never play in one that does not at least have a 1 day bonus. (Meaning you will at the least have 1 day to make your move from the time your opponent moves)

    So anything with less of a bonus (like the example here of 3 hours) means if you let your last time get down too low, a game might come back to you with very little time left..... and hopefully you are on-line. :-)

    crosseyed: Also, if you look at any current game, you will see something like this:

    Time left: BIG BAD WOLF: 1 day 12 hours, *other user*: 10 days

    As you can see - the Other user moves a lot quicker then I do. You should see this in every Fishers Clock game

    Subject: Re: Time-out.
    crosseyed:

    Time: 3 days
    Bonus: 3 hours
    Limit: 7 days

    So in the start of the game, you start out with 72 hours (3 days) to make your move.

    Lets say you use 24 hours - so now you are down to 48 hours.

    Opponent makes move

    The games comes back to you with the 48 hours left PLUS the bonus of 3 hours - giving you 51 hours for your next move.

    Lets say you took 50 hours to make your move. Now you are down to 1 hour

    Opponent moves

    The games comes back to you with the 1 hours left PLUS the bonus of 3 hours - giving you 4 hours for your next move.

    If you do not make a move within 4 hours of when your opponent does, then you time out.

    This is how the Fishers clock works.

    (The Limit: That is the MAX amount of time you can get. So lets say you make all your moves UNDER 3 hours of when your opponent does, then you would actually start gaining time on the clock - up to a max of 7 days.)

    So as far as I am concerned I had plenty of time. I don't see any clock.

    Explain it to me then please. As I was on line twice yesterday and would have made a move with game if it was showing how many days and hours were left.
