Dragon games
  • What are the items on the Games page?
    The Games page actually is a page showing different views on all the games on the Dragon Go Server:
    • All running games
    • All finished games
    • My running games or that of another user: To see these games start on the corresponding user-info page -> Follow the link "Running games" from the right info-box
    • My finished games of that of another user: To see these games start on the corresponding user-info page -> Follow the link "Finished games" from the right info-box
    • Show Games I'm observing.
    • Show All observed games.

    The configuration of table columns for the different views can be very different: the "all" and "user-specific finished games" use the same set of added and hidden columns. If you add a column that is shared by both views, the column is added in both (same is true for removing a shared column). The same applies for the "all" and "user-specific running games".
    Here's a brief explanation of all used table columns shared or differently used for all the six views described above. Pick out the ones, you are interested in (they are not strictly ordered but grouped a bit to avoid redundancy):
