Ignoring Offensive or Obnoxious Players ItsYourTurn.com provides an Ignore function that prevents all messages from a certain player from appearing on your computer screen. You will not see private messages sent by that player, or his postings on the message boards. You will be able to play games with that player, but you will not see messages that he sends with moves.

To activate Ignore on a player, view his User Profile or any message that he has sent to you or posted on the message board. Scroll down and click 'Ignore this user.'

Please read our detailed description of this Ignore function
here.

For instance, you can let your Extinction Chess game boards be green, and you regular chess boards be brown.
