I would like to ask someone of the chat-disablers-in-the-beginning-of-a-game: why do you do it? I don't see the intentions of that and find it weird. What is the reason behind it? thanks :)
To socialize on the chess board and not the dialogue box.
well, i dealt with ppl who like to trash talk on chat. it's really distracting when concentrating on a game. even if isn't trash talk, it affects my game.
I like the chat box on and enjoy chatting to other players (on longer timers) also to say GG at the end of a game. But I have disabled it in the past as there are a few people that think that "chat" is a synonym for "be a jerk." I guess that people who disable it to start with have encountered too many idiots to want to leave the box on?
It is distracting sometimes, and, some of us have had the misfortune of meeting sore loosers...
I too like to say GG and the end of a good game and this was why I found annoying when somebody somebody diasbled chat right off the bat.
Ok, now I understand your motives, thx for the answers.
