    too lazy to navigate your way through the chess.com I suppose ?

    I "suppose" that some of us would like simple answers instead of smartass replies, mate.

    We can give you an simple answer if you had given us a better detail of the problem you had in the first place.

    Well, sorry for my tart reply, but I was just "harping" on how the site was just fine the way it was....not looking for tech support....it just still seems unfamiliar after a month....maybe I'm just gettin' old...

    Well has been quite a lot of glitches so understandable people get exasperated. As long as problems are getting resolved things should become easier :)

    why not ? what do you find it so hard about it ? I didn't like it for a few days myself and by then I am ok with it.

    I have around 10 '' issues or problems '' that are causing difficulty with the site-redesign. I only consider one of those to be urgent & plan to submit the rest for reply via help/support ticket when things are less busy.

    can't point the finger at anything in particular, i've now forgotten how the old style looked, i just can't.

    maybe like the istrian, maybe i'm just getting old. things just ain't the same any more

    How old are you GM?

    If you can't point your finger at something specific, then what, exactly, do you expect anyone to do??  Change is a part of life... you either adapt or you don't, but you can't expect everything to stay the same forever!

    Another bug has been added.   When you click on the chess puzzle on the home page, it takes you to the general forum list.  (FF)

    This actually happens quite often.  Whoever is in charge of the puzzles needs to check that it works every time!!

    Erik,

    I am NOT satisfied with new design. The main issue is hiding the info about accounts closed for cheating. All cheater's closed homepages redirect here:

    http://www.chess.com/disabled_account.html

    and there is no link to their game archives, groups, trophies etc. Cheater's personal info (name, date of birth, e-mail) should become publicly available as part of social punishment and deterrent for others. For better inspiration, look here:

    you can do it manually. Just go to the page of a normal member (e.g. http://www.chess.com/members/trophy_room/Polar_Bear) and replace the name in the url with the name of the cheater ( http://www.chess.com/members/trophy_room/Schachgeek )

    wait...you already know this (http://www.chess.com/groups/forumview/lost-features-since-advent-of-new-design)

    so you just want it more easily accessible. good idea but maybe erik didn't want loads of people looking at the pages of cheaters due to protests that that player wasn't really cheating etc.

    I agree with Polar Bear. Cheats on the site cause terrible damage to results & morale of innocent & fair-players.

    After banning has occured of course site-members should be able to access this information !

    If it continues to be hidden/unavailable there is a loss-of-confidence in methods & how seriously this issue is being taken by the site.

    It's kinda like I was driving a '75 Cadillac at a comfortable cruising speed...all straight aways, no curves.....then all of a sudden I'm behind the wheel of a 2012 Porsche driving the roads of the French Riviera at 150km per hour....trying to get used to all the buttons and switches at the same time...I'll be OK....I'm just less patient than when I was younger....remember this...you will be where I'm at one day...hopefully...cheers.

    I think the proper comparison would be nicely cruising along on a German Highway (without speed limits :p) in a comfortable sedan, versus being thrown on an Alpine road with hairpins in a rally-car with a sequential gearbox.

    Driving an Alpine road at speed can be fun, surely, but whatever your car, you get to damn near a screetching halt for a hairpin or you wont make it, and a sequential gearbox will slow you down for a long time. It takes ages to get used to something like that.

    Also, the car suddenly lacks baggage space and legroom, which appears to be a permanent feature :s.
