Oh, sorry but I can't get to my normal images to post my custom smilies
I am using chrome. Font size 14pt.
This is orange . . . This Italic orange . . .
This blue . . . This is Italic blue . . .
This is red . . . This is Italic red . . .
Chrome 18.0.1025.142 m
This is bold orange... This is bold/italic orange
This is bold blue... This is bold/italic blue
This is bold red... This is bold/italic red
Now I will post it and see what happens.
RESULTS. . In my posted the italic red changed to blue.
In my comment box this is Italic Red.
So there is a problem here. I posted a piece and I thought I had made a mistake but the changes were being made by the new code.
I will forward this to Erik.
Italic Blue. Italic, but just black.
Site Wars: Return of the Java
I dont like new design. It is not well arranged, i want see clearly list of my games with all attributes, not this.
Well Done eric, Kohai and the Chess.com team. I am sure by now most of the bugs are ironed out and it is a question of time for the site to be perfect.
I was one of those who had said " we will miss the old format", but having played this updated version during the past few days, i am at home with this format and congratulate all of you for a good job done. Chess.com members too contributed quite a lot in pointing out bugs as they came across the same.
Keep up the good work and pls concentrate on throwing out the cheaters and frauds.
Is there not a way to look for 'game analysis' or 'game showcase' in the forums anymore, or am I being blind?
Just a bug here - when I go to post a topic and insert a game diagram, it loads and just says 'error on page' in the bottom left of the tab. Obviously something wrong here?
So, here is another bug:
The Teams Recent Activity Window (which survives to the detriment of the independent and very useful Forum Activity Window we used to have in the old version) is not changing the order of items according to the most recent comment posted in any of its components.
This means that if an important forum has been initiated 6 months ago, even if it is continuously updated, it remains hidden many pages back and it is not brought to the attention of Team members. In the old interface, as soon as something was added to a forum, that forum came up on top in the window and everybody could see that it has changed.
By contrast, today I added a new comment in a forum of my Team which deals with Opening Mistakes, an educational forum read by many of our members.
But nobody can see it on the Team home page, which means that to members who have not activated tracking (eg. new ones), it will be all but lost.
I have commented before on this, I think it is important but I do not know if someone is listening...
Sorry guys, not a big fan of the new look. The old school one is much easier to navigate and is just simpler. This one just doesn't do it for me. Sorry.
“You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.
I'm pleased, Eric
The very important shortcomng of the new format which is that our mrmbers playing via mobiles are unable to write their opinion i n he comment box !
This problem needs an urgent attention ,keeping in mind that the participation of active members is vital for vote chess games !
Sorry to add yet another message to this already overfull message board, but the new site looks "clunkier", more like something I could do myself, and less modern. I especially miss the symbols for online and live members.
Hello Erik and everyone at chess.com. I think that the new desgn is something that takes a little time to get used to, like the radical change a big site whose name shall remain unmentioned recently went through. But one thing I´m sure you have heard many times, from me as well, is the missing opportunity to flip sides while watching live games... Could you please put a flip-button on the live chessboard?! Best wishes, Englix
This new format is so much worse than the old one, all the icons are in the wrong place, they where handily arranged before - not no now.
I have been a gold premium member for the last 4 years, but cancelled my gold last week. I used to be able to play via my mobile phone through the internet connection, not any more, the new design/format makes it impossible for me to make any moves with my phone. As this was how I played most of my chess, it wasn't worth paying for a gold membership and getting no benefits. I am now a basic member. If the phone bug problem is fixed, I will return as a gold member
7 days in and still mobile phone bug!? Surely this should be a priority. I love chess.com and would hate to see a decline in traffic and ultimately closure.
Also it is very annoying not seeing members ratings straight away on some screens. Few little things like this which I can't understand the rationalebehind.
I would like there to be more room in the blog posting text box (http://www.chess.com/blog/post.html) without having to revert to full screen mode. The Posting Tips box/frame could go, there isn't any real need for it (maybe as a linked help page), and you could move the "Main Image" form element up and to the right, alongside the heading, to make more room to read the post while editing.
Brave New Look...
i like it. especially the bit where you brought in the tactical score of the oponent, this is a good indicator on the skill of the oponent.
I think the online coaching page is not working well !
I know there nothing to do with the new design , but I think it have to be fixed anyway.
