Weird... mine shows the amount of time I have left... in both list view and preview view.
it does if you are just looking as the main page (showing only 10 of your games) but when I go to show all games I am playing it shows time since my opponent moved:
I was prompted to try out the new layout on my Mac and I prefer it to the old one, is there a way I can change the layout for the site on my Windows computer too? I wasn't given the option when I logged on here (on my Windows comp)
it makes it really hard to tell which of your opponents are online and which are not because their is a green box beside your name in each game.
You can't tell which opponents are actively online anyway. I often leave my computer running even when I'm not using it because I have it doing things on its own in my absence. With a permanent DSL Internet connection, if I've got a browser tab open with chess.com (which I almost always do) I'll be shown as "online" by chess.com whether I'm doing anything on chess.com or not. I might even be asleep or not at home.
And in the other direction, I believe people accessing via mobile devices don't show up as online even when they are.
Video library under chess tv does not work with firefox on a Mac using Lion. It works with Opera.
Let me be clear. Videos work when using Opera and using the old format on my Mac, using Lion. The new setup is not satisfactory using Firefox on a Mac.
I`m old, and like the old style. Why fix something that isn`t broken?
I don't recall ever seeing the original announcement. Is there a known timetable for when any change might be implemented and the current format eliminated as an option?
The point is the new look makes it more complicated than it was. I do wish they would be able to put a thing to show when people were accessing via mobile phone too.
There is a group here you can join to give your feedback, that is run by Erik. Not sure why they have it set up to not be automatic acceptance for members applying to join the group, you have to wait for administrator's acceptance. Seems strange when the group is specifically set up to ask for feedback, why delay that process?
I like the old format, but I'd love for Number of Games in Progress be fixed. It has never worked for me.
That's been an ongoing problem, and apparently one that can be "reset" for individual accounts. Try filing a ticket-- there was some thread quite a while back where people said after their current game value had been reset by staff it worked from that point onward.
Thanks, but I tried that once before without success.
Another problem is when I go to look at other players games and click the 'show more' button to see all their games it takes me to see all of my games.
It also does not show me on opponent's profile how many games we have played against each other, which I really enjoyed.
you're saying it all in the wrong place catholicbatman.. you can tell the developers your gripes/issues direct here.
I don't like the new format ! ! !
How can you tell if you are playing against a reted player or an unrated player.???
There is a group here you can join to give your feedback, that is run by Erik. Not sure why they have it set up to not be automatic acceptance for members applying to join the group, you have to wait for administrator's acceptance.
The only reason to set it up that way is if they expect there will be some members they want to keep out.
I know that 's why you would normally set it up that way. I can't see why they would want to keep anyone out of this group. If anyone joined it that trashed it or they didn't want there, they can easily remove them. How many would want to do that? A few possibly, but I doubt it. So to set it up this way to stop the majority joining instantly and being able to give feedback instantly seems odd to me.
the new format is good but i think you ought to put "photos" up in the black bar as the photo feature is something particular to this site and i think is used often.
i do miss not seeing at least my list of games where i am to move. perhaps a small box with a minaturized game list of waiting games for my moves could be placed as a choice in the chat box. one could click on this item and the chat box would disappear to be replaced by your "active game list".
Did our Old Format juz disappeared ??
Now,my Profile Theme has also disappeared as well !
I prefer our Old Format/Look .. I think it's extremely Simple n' User Friendly n' Very Unique to Chess.com .. Everything is so Clear n' Easy to use !
I think the New Look looks very similiar to Face Book .
I don't seem to know how to play my games anymore .. not used to it, ie.
I think any Extra ,Interesting n' Informative New Features we have there,can be added on to our Existing/Current/Old One ,instead of changing everything completely .
These include :
1)our Tactics Trainer n' Chess Mentor Stats
( Juz Add that whole Rating Stats Info Box to our Current Home/Profile Page )
2)Our Friends' List ( better if it's Optional for it to be Displayed ; Some People may prefer Privacy,I think )
The Old One is way better coz we can see all or most of our Online Friends at a glance .. the New Format only shows 12 Random Ones with a green( or red ,if in Live Chess) square at the corner if they happen to be online.( I prefer the flashing symbol coz it makes u feel that something is 'Alive' ...lol ) .. n' this means we can only see a few of our Friends Currently Online unless u wanna click tru pages of our Friend's List to view them )
If only 12 can be shown,why not show all 12 that r most recently Online instead of only a few online ones n' the rest may not hv even logged in for a very long time.
3) The Sound that accompanies our Moves in our Online n' Vote Chess Games,gives me a 'Shock' sometimes .. People may or may not like it,so it shld be made Optional/can be turned on or off ie.
4)Our 'Alerts Box' had our Customized Theme's Colors applied to it ... That's Real Nice if applied to our Current/Old Format as well .
plus a fewThots/Observations ...
5)There's something wrong with our Vote Chess Games Page .. I can't find my Games where it's my Move ,even after clicking on lots of pages ; only found my 'Finished Games' n' my Games where it's my Opponent's Moves .. but maybe this has been fixed already ?
6)I think our Notes hv been misplaced n' r no longer juz 'Notes' but more like Messages now coz they r given Top Priority on our Activity Page.
7)Our Customised Themes don't work well with it ... The Boxes in the Middle all hv Colourless Backgrounds now n' the Wordings can't be read clearly coz there's no Contrast.
8)Only a few of our Groups appear on our Home n' Profile Page n' when we click on 'Our Groups' header link ,we hv to click tru pages to find the Group we r looking for ... before,our Groups' List is Complete n' Compact,all in One Neat,Organized List ! ( Now,we can only see 10 of our Groups on our Profile/Home Page )
.. n' our Group Admins' List hv disappeared .. that was an Excellent Feature for All Group Super Admins as well as Members !
( Edit : This has recently Reappeared .. Yay ! )
9)The Headers Bar on our Home n' Profile Pages does not look as Nice as before ( It looks a bit too plain now )
I think there r more pts I hv thot up but I can't recall them now .
.. this is my Opinion n' Feedback n' Suggestions.
I sincerely hope we can be given the Option to keep our Old/Current One even if the New One is going to be Implemented.
( I also hope we can hv back our Customized Themes to apply to our Individual n' Group Profile Pages coz it took us some time to create them n' I Really prefer not to hv to create them again.)
Tnx Very Much !
