    Here are my suggestions/bug fix requests:

    1. First, next time, announce ahead of time that major changes are going to be taking place in the user interface! Say something like this: "Attention Chess.com members. This Saturday there will be an upgrade to the User Interface. There are some design changes that are going to be put into effect that we hope you will enjoy...."  Because there was no forewarning that I saw, I had thought my Internet settings were messed up.

    2. Also, next time, don't put all of the changes into effect at once! Make only a couple of changes at a time, over a long period of time. This way, people can acclamate more easily to the new design.

    3. Whenever I move a piece in Online Chess, it makes a noise. I want to shut this noise off, but I can't find where to shut it off. I looked in settings, but I don't see the option there. PLEASE don't tell me that there is no way to shut off that noise--that noise is very annoying.  Also, in chess competition, there is little-to-no noise, and it should be that way on Chess.com if we want to get as close to a "competition" feeling as possible.

    4. When going into an online game, when the move list comes up, it should automatically scroll to the last move made. Currently, it only scrolls part of the way down, and I have to scroll it to the end manually. Make it so that it scrolls to the last move automatically.

    5. In the previous version, when viewing an online game, there was a button to "go to the next available game". The button is not there now. That button was useful and I used alot. Sometimes when viewing a game, I wanted to go to the next game without making a move on the current one being viewed, especially if the position was complicated. It was nice because I could just click the button and easily go to the next available game. But, now if I want to go the next game there are a bunch of extra steps I have to take: I have to go out of that game to the main menu, go though my current games, find the next available game myself, and click it. This creates alot of useless extra steps as well as extra time.  That button needs to be added back in please.

    Tried to play chess against the computer & my computer froze up. Had to re-boot to get out of it. I always like it when that happens!!

    I notice that you have added the admins / super admins back to groups home pages but it would be really helpful if you could please include the admins names under their pictures or its going to cause problems if we need to contact any of them (instead of clicking on the pic to see who it is)

    I really don't like "My Online Chess" page. As soon as I open it there's all of my games. Chess boards all over the page. Different positions. Which one to click. Who's who? I don't want to make it seem like it's confusing but it doesn't seem very organized. I like going to my online chess and have everything in it's place and when I'm good and ready I will view my positions GAME by GAME. It's like you're pushing me to make a move already throwing my games in my face like that. Please make an option to make a LIST of my games.

    In the top right hand corner there is an option to change it back to the old "list style"

    Thank you but It doesn't beat the old format (list) style. It's just seems like a cheaper version of it. Like I'm playing on some game site where chess just happens to be a game available. Not an actual site dedicated to chess the game itself.Frown

    Placing cursor over the pictures generates the names.

    But the new "list" is identical to the old site design once you click it

    But, it doesn't stay on the 'list' style. When I return to the page, it reverts back to the 'board' style Frown

    That must be a bug then cuz it has done with me

    I meant to say that once I leave the site, then return, it reverts back to the 'board' style. As long as I merely go to another page on the site, it's OK. When I leave the site and return like I just did this evening, it had reverted back to the 'board' view.

    At first I did not like this change but I need more time to decide. Change is good. ( hopefully )

    The change has complete killed my ability to play on my phone.  Thats a problem. 

    Also, I liked being able to see more articles, blog updates, forum posts, etc. on the first page.  The whole point of tabbed browsing is to be able to open multiple articles in other tabs and read them at leisure rather than having to keep returning to the home page and search for another.

    I get enough Facebook on Facebook, I don't need to see a social 'feed' on my home page, I'd rather see my recently played games.  If I 'unfriend' all of my friends, will all of the clutter go away or will the space just be filled with more 'news feed' stuff?

    I hope there is a point to this - right now it just seems to make the chess an accessory of a Site that wants to be something else.

    It would appear that Erik wants this to be a FB clone site.
