would "back to the old layout" be a cure-all ?
It is conceivable there are some bugs that would not be fixed by it, but even after two months, I find the new format more cumbersome, slower, missing loads of useful stuff (latest find: link to vote chess leaderboard is gone.. ), not working well with any version of IE and uglier to boot.
Bringing back the old code would in fact solve a lot more problems than it would (re)create, from a user perspective. The slow speed at which stuff is adressed isn't helpful either.
Problems ive noticed:
1. No time display (or ratings either) except for opponent on live chess
2. Tactics Trainer freezing frequently
3. Also, try against computer used to work, no more.
4. Board is crazy small on full board mode. Oh ya, i only have the problem with no time showing up on simple mode.
IE is still the most used browser; and any self respecting site should work with all of the top 5 browsers).
IE hasn't been the most used since 2008. Firefox passed it up long ago and Chrome is actually used the most right now, just beating out FF.It is still in the top 5 however.
I'm getting used to it but I'd still like more contrast.
Depends on who you ask: http://gs.statcounter.com/#browser-ww-monthly-201105-201204
And while I couldnt dig up the number for corporate users, I suspect IE has a bigger share there - so no IE means a lot of people cannot go for a quick visit to their chess games during a coffee break....
netzach, have you already chosen one team's side for that vote chess game? Before that, one will not be allowed to see any side's team comments, of course.
Yes of course Mago. Have chosen side, voted & submitted move, ticked tracking-box at bottom...
None of the team-members can see team-comment button !
he is right only public comment shows, but are actauly viewing team comment (the tab has been omitted for some reason )
Lack of info on screen is annoying compared to the old version. Seems you have to do a lot of digging to view things like other players ratings and so on. Half the time I don't bother now which I presume is good for the server traffic/load but its a bit annoying when you are a paying member. I've asked this before but have never had an answer - are the changes due to server load? If not then why change or simply add these things back in.
Also Iphone browser.... *dies*
We are definitely behind where we wanted to be by now, as regards the mobile browser experience - but we know it needs to be better and we're working on it.
As for the stuff that requires more digging, no, we didn't do anything to "hide" features that were server-intensive. Specifically what data is harder to access than before? In what way is it more difficult to discover a player's rating than previously?
Ain't a big thing for me (I'm just fed up with Explorer!) but before you clicked on a name and saw their online chess stats. Now you click on a name, then click on activity, then click on online chess before you can see stuff such as highest rating, time per move etc
Ah yes, you have to expand the "Online" rating section to see the details (rank, best win, etc.).
You have to click on a name and then click on "Activity"? I'm already on that tab when I click the name...
I just clicked your name and was on the chess.com logo above the play...learn...share line.
But like I said, this was someone else's bugbear.
Is there a target time scale? A week? A month? A year?
hmm Team Comments is missing for me in the Vote chess, I am using chrome.
True, netzach and kco, Team Comments in Vote Chess are no longer explicitly shown to be the Team Comments when you are there.
One is automatically in the Team Comments window when one goes to one of one's vote chess games, but one has to guess that what is shown there is really the team comments.
So team comments are there, and one can use them. But the according tab header telling us that we are in the team comments window is missing now.
& if you decide to click on '' public-comments '' amidst the confusion is no way back. You have to close & open the page again, is nuts !
(am not sure if comments are private anymore seems anyone can read ?)
also note that after I made a comment and post it, the team comment is not there for me to continue making any more comment.
In the '' archive '' team-comments button is visible:
yep that is what I had to do too at the meantime.
We'll get this fixed as soon as possible.. When did the tab disappear?
Is writing notation actually REQUIRED in tournaments?
