I liike the new tactics trainer analysis board where you also see the notation for continuations but it is too dark to see clearly. It would also be nice to see/use the analysis board while looking at the continuations further down the page. Thanks
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 had the same problem till I clicked the "compatibility wiew" icon by the address bar next to the "refresh" icon
Okay, thanks. I'll try that the next time that it doesn't work for me.
What bothers me most, is the lag in making a move. (java board?). Always kill the fun of playing 1 min chess. If you compare this with playchess or chesscube, chess.com has to improve the interface.
I recently posted what I thought was an interesting anecdote on the subject of "Have you ever underpromoted to a Knight"; I was curious about responces to what I posted and I can`t find the link connection. Can you help?
Not sure if this is the correct Forum for posting this, but I have a suggestion for Chess Mentor (a wonderful feature, BTW!). I wish there were a bit more information (context) within each Lesson window. Specifically, I'd like it to show (1) the rating of the current Lesson; and (2) where this Lesson stands within the Course (e.g., "Lesson 12 of 24").
Any chance the chess.com genie can fulfill these wishes?
I'll second that. And, I'll add my previous wish that the mentor screens be worked on. They are currently an incredibly stark wasteland of white.
the daily puzzle box on the home was not working for me for the first few days now its fine, but other than that I LOVE IT@
Thanks, paul211! And they say that Chesspeople are nasty. We may be a little eccentric but all in all, we`re a pretty good bunch!
Who said Chess people are nasty? Let me at 'em!
The 'manage member' function is very clumsy for group admins. E.g. I'm on page 9 of my group, sorted by most recently online, I delete someone who's not been there for 6 months, with the idea of then deleting the one above, who's not been online for 5 months. But instead of returning me to the same page after the first deletion, the system takes me back to page 1 sorted alphabetically.... I ask myself why?
Because it´s not changed.
Yeah, it's always been that unfriendly.
There should be Random Ratings Order, too.
Just noticed the new sounds for Live Chess. Ugh.
The first move of the game, and when you checkmate, are both a loud farting sound.
Really should fix that guys. Please.
Staff keep bringing those AWFUL sounds back.. it's a relief when they remove them... but when they bring them back again, ARGGHHH. I played a little Live chess last night and those horrible cheap/tacky noises really do take away from the pleasure of the game there. I don't get why they keep yoyoing them...
Yes the checkmate/resign sound effect sounds like someone is crumpling a piece of paper. (Gimme a t-shirt if I guessed right) A ding sound would be pretty funny imo.
Good grief - stopped playing online chess as couldn't find anything in new layout, just thought I would play a live game and happily doing so about 5 minutes into the game another game starts wiping out the one I am playing - not as if a tournament game or anything just appeared to be a random challenge - this site has really gone down hill - why oh why do programmers think they have to always change things.
There is unfortunately (I believe) serious detriment to the ease-of-use/functionality of the site now ? Not against the new-features at all but many of them should changed to selectable-options this would ease navigation-troubles.
An added benefit to doing this would be that statistics could be gathered on what is popular & what is not.
Thanks guys! I`m able to find stuff much better.
