Not sure why a new feature called pause was not added in a new design and it would have been nice to add a pause game button to any online game played before playing the next move.
Why a pause button you ask? Well when I play unrated games with no take back moves against an opponent, some challengers do not know how to challenge with take back moves they simply challenge with an unrated game. As a coach I would like to ask my opponent some questions or make a suggestion before she/he makes the final move.
Naturally the pause button would keep the clock ticking and if the time alloted to play the next move is exceeded the so be it and the challenger looses the game, fair and square.
If you're planning to coach someone Paul and they send you a challenge without selecting the 'takeback' option, isn't it easy enough to cancel the challenge and send a challenge yourself with it selected or asking them to? I think this would be much easier than having a code written for it, especially when the odds of it being a frequent problem for many would be very minimal, and especially how the takeback option allows you to pause in a way by taking back and discussing better options for a particular move.
Happy Anniversary to EVERYONE!
Amazing how we all joined the site on the same day, May 24...
and err.. we all joined today, so not really an anniversary.. :)
btw, this bug which shows our join date as TODAY was around last Tuesday also, but it only seemed to affect those with certain browsers.. now it seems to have affected everyone.
Erik is no longer Metusalem !
Who and what is Metusalem? Originator?
hey I was born today, join today, and last login today
Major kudos to chess.com though. The website remains on the buggy side (to say the least), but they did discover the potion of eternal youth!
@ ck : http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metusalem
why has everybody joined today, everyone's birthday today and everyone's highest rating was achieved today??
Born being able to play chess - hoping to be a Grandmaster by 3 years old !
Why didn´t they nullify the points, profile views and ratings too ?!
Maybe next time ?
Hey you already have the ability to:
read & write
use a computer
So Grandmaster no problem 2 years tops
It's showing all my online games with today as the completion date as well!
I think we have travelled forwards into the future.. maybe 100,000 years... where superbabies born are programmed to do be able to accomplish at birth what would take many years in the 'olden' days.
I noticed that the Tournaments page has just been changed to show all active tournaments in which you played, even if you have been eliminated.
For a while there, it only showed tournaments in which you were still active. I would like to see the user be able to choose...once again, I have no idea how to find out which tournaments I am active in without clicking on each of the 30 or so active tournaments in which I played, most of which I have been eliminated from.
You should be able to tell the difference at a glance. The problem is that the icons are not displaying properly. We'll get this fixed ASAP.
In fact, thanks for getting the ones where you were eliminated back!
Next step: making sure the site isn't populated by newborns :p (see above)
Yeah, I'm not seeing that... What page is showing incorrect dates?
True or false? Chess will never be solved! why?
