Get rid of the "Play Again" button when a time controlled game is over

Currently, there are several problems when a game with timers is over.

1. Someone has to press "Play Again", and the in addition to that, everyone needs to press "Start" to play again.
2. It's possible for someone to press "Play Again" before everyone has finished looking at the final state of the board.
3. When a game is over, it no longer shows up in people's "My Turn" list, so someone might think that the other person hasn't taken their move when actually they did but it happened to be the move that ended the game.

Getting rid of the "Play Again" button for clocked games would fix all of these issues. Instead of a single "Play Again" message, when the game was over, each player would get their own separate "Play Again" button, perhaps alongside another "Stand Up" button. Games in such a state would show up in the player's "My Turn" list. As long as one player had not yet pressed "Play Again", the board would not be cleared. At the point where all seated players have pressed play again, the board would be cleared and a new clocked game would start as if they had all already pressed "Start"
