Allegretto, see Erik's post #663.
They have now given the option to hide our friend's list from non-friends.
But there is still no option to hide the list from everyone, as you can do in Facebook and all social networks, if you want to.
Thank you chess_kebabs! I had just looked at the privacy things, and agree. The only options are to show to your friends or the entire membership. Also, this for notes, etc. This is not at all what privacy is about. I don't want an exclusive little club of friends! If I want a friend to have a message, I just sent them a message. I don't see why other friends, some of whom may be slight acquaintances or chessgame friends, should have to see photos of my "friends." Are we back in seventh grade or something? (no offense to any seventh graders who may be playing chess). It's really stupid.
agree gmeillonc... my iphone is relatively new and was loving being able to log in if not home and make a chess move or navigate without any issues before.. so am patiently waiting til that's all fixed.
we are going to add the option to hide friends lists.
Nice one, i know a few who will appreciate that !
I would imagine unchecking the checkbox Friends can view my friends. would do that.
Oddly placed under invites though.
Eric, is there any way to hide "friends list" from everyone, not just non-friends? It used to be hidden from everyone unless you wanted others to see it. Why not have all your privacy info set as a default so no one can see anything unless you select who is privy to it, instead of this way?
Agreed. That's odd. Looking into it now.
Thanks. Very deceptive. All it needed were 3 options in the one spot,
'Anyone' can view my friends
'Only my friends' can view my friends
'No-one' can view my friends (or 'Myself only' can view my friends)
Unchecking 'Friends can view my friends' does not hide it from everyone. I just did a test and others can still view it.. I have that box unchecked.
My friends can still view my friends list.
I can't get to my home page on the iPad
Also I've noticed, the option to stop anyone sending you friend requests has been removed.. that new link to uncheck friends viewing friends list (which doesn't work) has replaced it's spot.
Not that it bothers me as I don't care who sends me a request, I either accept or ignore or decline if a real sleazebag, but I know others like to block requests coming through.. guessing this is an error and not a deliberate feature removal.
Yup. That's what we're going to do! :)
Are there any plans to add to, or change the emoticons?
Here's a novel idea.. how about testing links and new or adjusted features/options provided rather than putting them up and waiting for us all to say they don't work or there's a new problem caused?
If you can't test it properly without putting it up, then at least can't it be tested as soon as it goes up?
Happy to see that Michael, just not sure why it wasn't done in the very first place, and now the 2nd place.. but hopefully 3rd time lucky.
Maybe it´s cheaper this way ?
we're running as fast as we can to fix the bugs and make everything right. here's a novel idea - put yourself in our shoes and think what's it like trying to run a site of 5 million demanding members. if we make a mistake every once in a while, trying giving us a break.
that particular code was written by a new developer. i'm not sure who QA'd it, but obviously they didn't QA it well. but seriously - can you please get off my back already? :) i know you aren't happy. i know you have a billion criticisms of how i do things. i've heard it already. enough, please.
we're more than happy to fix things, build things, and do our best to make everyone happy. but it helps when it's done with support, not with "told you so" and "you suck" and "here's a novel idea". treating us like idiots doesn't help. and we're not idiots - we built the best chess site in the world, and the ~2,000th most visited site in the world. :D so, please kebabs... enough already.
