I do have one annoyance. It is the clicking whenever I make a move using Chess Mentor, Game Explorer, analyzing an ongoing game, etc. Is there any way I can get rid of this short of turning off the sound locally on my PC?
There is a Volume icon you can click to turn off the sound. It is there in Game Explorer and on you games you can turn it off there and when you go to analyze it will be off in the analysis board.
Didn't check Mentor but I would assume it has the icon too.
Just saw that if you turn it off on one it will turn off on the other too. Hopefully that is a setting saved in the database and not just in a cookie (since I use multiple devices).
Thanks Martin, found it and you are correct, turning it off in one area seems to work in all the others (including Chess Mentor).
I also noticed that a members points do show up, with their posts, to the far right of their name in very light gray.
Can someone tell me where the daily puzzle went? Is it gone?
Regarding Tactics Trainer, please do not reset the board lower on the screen each time I click new problem. I waste valuable seconds moving the board back to where I can see everything well.
I did a few problems using Internet Explorer, instead of Firefox. It was even worse. In Firefox, TT reset the board at the bottom edge of the screen. In IE, the bottom row of squares was obscured.I also notice that several characters in this message are faint in IE. It's a junk browser, but some folks use it and it should work.
Where the help you said we would get in finding all this stuff>> I see no help yet....
People are helping. There are just a lot of different questions/problems so some will likely get missed or haven't been seen by someone that has the answer yet.
Okay so where an answer to any question on these pages, this is page 6 by the way and no answers yet. So whos helping so I can talk with them....
Umm, I've posted a number of answers in this and other topics and others are too. I saw some of your questions on the first page but don't recall if any have been answered though.
Unless you are expecting answers from staff only, then there are fewer of those and I don't recall (without reading this whole topic again) if that has happened yet.
You can find the link/puzzle on the front page of the site (click on the chess.com logo at the top).
I think there should be a direct link to the daily puzzle from the Learn-menu as there was before. It's harder to find it now, having to go to the forums and then "most recent" or "today's hot topics", or having to go to the front page.
At least the iPad app has a stable board in Tactics Trainer, but otherwise the app has lost much of its functionality. I no longer can access my Home screen through the back door in Stats. The built-in Home for the app is useless as it simply reproduces the menu choices along the bottom. The Home that I see via browsers should be accessible, so I can prowl the forums during lunch.
How do I see all my games instead of just the 10 showing?
Click on the link that says Online Chess on your home page or go to Home -> Online Chess. On that page you will have a link at the bottom of the list to view all your games. There is a feature (bug?) on that latter page/link though that shows the last time a move was made and not how much time is left to make a move.
the old formats game and opening of the day please bring it back I learned oooo so much from those.
Okay since you seem to be answering questions, How do I get my teams on the team page in order, from highest to lowest rated or alphabetical so I know how to keep building my team....... So I know where theres holes so I know what gaps to fill in....
How come I cant see all my friends whose online at the same time anymore?
On you home page, all the members in the Friends sections that have a green box on their icon, are currently online and should be showing there. If you happen to have more online then what is displayed here then you will have to view them on your friend page link (http://www.chess.com/home/friends.html) and sort by Most Recently Online which is the default (or it was for me).
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!
I cant post my own forums I've looked everywhere but cant for the life of me find how to post my own thread help PLEASSSSSEEE!!!
I don't do a lot of team stuff and don't run any.
Try this though. Go to your team, click on the Members link and then click on the arrow on the search box without entering anything.
That has a drop-down box to allow you to sort by various methods. Though, I don't think that will quite give you what you want since it doesn't show ratings on that page.
Illl go look... I will let you know...
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.
There is a big green button to the right which says post new forum topic :)
I went and looked at 5 of my teams and did as you said, one question, where is this search box with the arrow, its doesnt seem to be on any of the pages anywhere... On all my teams...
Did you ever hear the old saying- If it ain't broke don't fix it.- I'm not going to ask how to find something. I'm just going to stick with gameknot.
