    In the past each tactical puzzle had an analysis page. Where has that gone?! Surely getting rid of that is not an intended "improvement"?!!

    Besides it is impossible to navigate the site with and iPhone, the iPhone app can't load Videos either. A total mess.

    A number of Videos that were recorded using our old method are encoded in a way that the iOS video player doesn't like, but the vast majority of videos play fine. That issue is not redesign-related.

    Your sarcastic suggestion DeepGreene doesn't help at all. I repeat my complaint that the Tactics Trainer had in the past a page showing each of the major lines with an evaluation of their value. This does not appear to be there any more.

    No, brusselsshrek, each tactics trainer problem has never had a View Analysis & Source page, if that's what you mean. I think that at least out of those problems that I face, about 70% had that page in the old design, and about 70% still do.

    It is impossible to play on my BlackBerry.....a problem I never faced with the old site

    I am managing to play on my Blackberry Torch 9800. Initially it would allow me to play for a few days and then the download software crashed, but recently it seems to be working ok. http://www.chess.com/play/mobile-chess.html is the link, and then choose 'phones with Java'. I remember that Kohai had a further link if the one above gives problems (can't remember where to find it - you'll have to browse the forums).

    tnx a lot kenneth67

    I got the chess.com iPhone app and ever since then I've been penalized as someone aborting/abandoning games I didn't know I had done because my iPhone signal isn't the best any way to make the iPhone app a little more patient with those having a crumby signal I usually never abort a game with a player :/ I love chess.com

    Here are some more issues:

    1. How do we see all players online in a group? Seems the display is limited to 12.
    2. A couple of malfunctions in the tournament handling department: first, when we delete a player, the system takes us back to page 1 instead of the one we're on at the time; second: during registration, when we try to open a player's home page the system doesn't do it, but just reopens the tournament page itself.
    3. Posting generally: I regularly find I have to left click 3 times before the system responds and accepts what I'm typing.
    4. Bullet points / numbers are disappearing from sent messages

    And here's still one issue: when you put your cursor over a player's name, it should show some information about him/her, precisely last online, points, rating, and trophy showcase. I think these should all be neatly in a white square that opens above your cursor. However, at least with my Internet Explorer, the left hand side information lacks correct alignment, goes all messy, and is displayed below the white box, while the right hand side information is in the box just as it should be.

    I have only two issues with the new design:

    1)  Tactics Trainer will fail to acknowledge my move about 1 in ten tactics. I make a move and 'nothing happens', but the board is now frozen.  I have no way to end the tactic except to restart the trainer, losing the last tactic.  This seems primarily to be the case when I make my move very quickly...which is the point.

    2) Going through an analyzed game is much more choppy than it used to be.  Often I will click on the next move, only to click again a second later because I thought I missed it.  Another second and 'bang-bang' the analysis makes two moves...now I have to click back,which often 'sticks' as well.  This problem did not exist in the prior version.

    These two issues are very frustrating, the rest of the changes seem fine.

    In the old design I don't remember a single case where Tactics Trainer did not have the "View Analysis & Source" page. I have now checked my most recent 20 or so problems, and none of them has it.

    Can someone name a problem where the analysis IS there?

    Here: the ID of the problem is 0037928 

    But you see the Analysis & Source only if you actually do the problem. So, you need to first click "Try this problem", when you can do it in practice mode. There should be an Analysis & Source link on the right hand side after you either solve or fail the problem.

    JPatSoCal:

    I agree with both of your points. I have not recently faced a tactics trainer problem where the whole thing would freeze, though, it just sometimes takes 5-10 seconds for the tactic to respond. However, I am not in the habit of responding immediately (in fractions of a second) either, because I do have memories of the whole thing getting stuck then.

    And about going through analyzed games, I've also faced that click forward->lag->another click->displays two moves->back, but another thing that I don't like is that when the game is long and there is a scroll bar on the right, the bar always jumps back to the top after I play the game forward. This means that I can't see the move list nor the possible variations that there are if I'm playing through the end of a long game.
