Request for visible game description (for fast games)

Sorry, I know - always someone has a new request for you. And I asked for it a month or two ago.
But today this beautiful platform has many new players. A lot of them can't read or haven't respect for other people or just don't understand how timers work.
Almost every day one of my games is cancelled, because someone joined and next he dropped the game for inactivity. Why are they joining a game named 'fast' and with a short timer if they won't play? I don't know.
I prefer only fast games: live or turn-based. I am doing what I can: namening games for example 'FAST-turn-based-EUtime' 'Fast-turn-based-max2days'
Also I put text in chat: 'don't join if you can't play fast... Etc, etc.
But nothing help - people don't see it or don't want to see it.
So please - could you optionally set (not mandatory) the field for the game description, visible next to the 'join' button?
Player description, or ready (descriptions you have made), for example:
Don't join if you can't play fast every day between 8am and 4pm. ATTENTION: game for max 2 days, short timer operating between 8 and 16 euro timezone.
Live game. Join only if you have 3-4 hours to play without long pauses.
Yeah, it's annoying. Do you use the karma restriction setting? On fast games I use a higher karma restriction and it seems to work, even though you would typically have to wait longer for people to join. I almost always put it at at least 76, to filter out people who have never finished a game before.
And it is weird indeed that people who can understand a game as complex as GP don't seem to understand a simple timer. ;)

Yes, it helps, but not enough, I've already had games with timer 1 and also 6 hours - abandoned or (blocked for many hours) by players with karma 80 - 100.
