User open for games should indicate this by replies to this topic. Any limitations or preferrence to the game to be played should be indicate in this reply.
When you stop beeing availiable for games you should edit your reply to indicate this.
If you at a later stage again become availiable for more games you should post that as a new reply.
If you are continously availiable long enough that your request is followed by more than 7 closed game requests you can duplicate your reply to prevent it from beeinb lost, You should then edit the original reply to indicate that it has been duplicated and should no longer be seen as active.
When requesting games against an opponent that is open for games this should be handled via the forums pm system with a set of concrete suggestions as to how the game should be played.(single/double, limited/unlimited, kn/classic)
When recieving such a request and if one of the concrete suggestions is accetable you should select one and create a topic for the game with your selection and your first move(if you have a first move to make) and send a reply via the pm system. If the suggestions he makes is unacceptable then matters can proceed as if he had indicated that he was open for games.(e.g. you are free to send your own suggestions back to him)
Sticking to this means that game requests would be gathered at the end of this topic and that the rules for the game is agreed when the game starts.
