New Site Design Feedback

    Repeating myself in this thread, as it seems active:

    While some of the bugs are getting fixed, I'd like to remind chess.com staff that old IE versions still perform horribly - and my IT department will not allow installation of another browser (so don't give me the swithc-to-chrome crap. IE is still the most used browser; and any self respecting site should work with all of the top 5 browsers).

    Also:

    - the overview of tournaments doesn't seem to include a list of tourney's that you were eliminated from but that are still on-going (used to be very handy to check progress of people that beat you)

    - It's hard, if not impossible to see the percentage of win/loose/draws of people; premium members cannot see detailed stats for other players anymore? That would be a pity, one of the things I'd like doing here (presuming I renew) would be to start a group based on studying draws. But an essential piece of info would be to see if prospective members would actually have some games to contribute... Also, IMO a high draw percentage also indicates some skill (to convert lost games into a draw by perpetual or repition, for example), in the 1600 to 1900 range perhaps even more so than the rating itself.

    - an easy link to the chess.com email () is still absent. (Isee the previous thread I made on this list the topic as resolved, but it is NOT. In IE nor Chrome this link is showing under the home menu.

    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.. Yell), 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 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 !  Smile

    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?
