Where the help you said we would get in finding all this stuff>> I see no help yet....
No, Erik didn't promise help--he just promised we could ask for help!
But help would be nice, not just in this forum but also in the new format. There are obvious questions (where's the daily puzzle? how do you turn off the stupid clicking sound? where's "next game"? etc.) and there ought to be one obvious place to look for help. Like, you know, FAQs! In the new format, so much is NOT stated.
I hate the new format, wish we could go back, wish we had the OPTION of using the old format individually, assume that's not practicable, imagine we'll get used to the awful new format, but think there ought to be more help included with it!
Yeah, it looks like the FAQ/Help pages will need to be updated to answer some of these questions. Though, most of the one you have asked have been answered a number of times.
This is what eric wrote in the 1st post: erik
If you can't find something in the new design that you used to know where it was in the old design, ask here and we'll show you how to find it!
He did say we'll show you how to find it. So where the help he said would be here helping me find it????????
I went and looked at 5 of my teams and did as you said, on question, where is this search box with the arrow, its doesnt seem to be on anythe page anywhere... On all my teams...
OK, you don't see a box like the following at the top of the right column in a group after clicking the members link?
If not, what browser and version are you using?
I am using google chrome....... Nope boxes not there on any team page....
In my personal opinion the colouring and overly large font sizes of this new format appears "childish". I do, however, like the way that information is summarised on my home page. Just make it smaller!
Given the previous professionalism of this site's developers I'm shocked and disappointed that we don't at least have the option of the old layout via the Themes menu.
Whilst change often provokes negativity overall this is clearly a major "miss" with the chess.com population.
I left foxfire at Erik's suggestion a long time ago and came to google chrome because it was easier to use. It was much easier. I stayed with it and wont go back to foxfire of IE as they are not easy anymore... But the question remains wheres the box at????

Not sure then. I don't currently have Chrome installed on the machine I'm on so can't test. It is possible that you may have a bad cached page. Might try clearing your cache and reload those pages.
I did that already, no box came up...
This is just way to many bugs to be dealing with for all the different versions of browsers that are out here. Things show up on one browser but not all browsers. Which browser are you using? I dont relish the idea of downloading and using 3 or 4 different browsers because some features show up on some and not all of them.... So what are we suppose to do.....
hmmmm, foxfire?? interesting. I like foxfire, i use foxfire regularly;)
Can't find the records for the actual times (Gane in 15/5, etc.) for the "Live Chess" games that I have played.
Ditto with my opponents.
I'm actually using an Alpha version of Firefox (Aurora 13.0a2) but everything should be pretty close to what I see in the newer versions too (for sure 10+). I believe Firefox 11.x is the current version.
That said, if your Chrome is up-to-date, it should work too. Maybe just a minor bug. I'll test with Chrome later tonight and see what I get.
Thanks, I got the lastet chrome thats out.
the only thing i like is that you can see the friends of other members
If you LIKE the new format please join this group Keep the new format.
If you DON"T LIKE the new format please join this group Bring back the old format.
If everyone join the group that is true to there opinion it will let chess.com know how many people like and dislike the new format
Is there a way to change your privacy settings so that your friend list is private? I've seen quite a few complaints about this in group notes.
Id imagine it is being worked on corrijean, this was just pushed live today, so other tweaks id imagine will come in the following days and weeks
Change it back please please. If it works why change it. Facebook does all that changing stuff around also. I love chess.com but.............what happened?
It became face book styled.....
The biggest problem with the new style is. It needs about 10 times longer to be loaded.
