Hey, as a newbie, a few things I find very puzzling;
1.What is the top chat box for, it has things like this in it;
sivaambi has joined the chat.
sivaambi has left the chat.
and a lot of other stuff; it doesnt seem to be useful or pertinent?
Also, in a tournament I played today, after one game, I clicked on another game to watch, then couldnt get back to my next game in time; not really fair, is it?
Here is more of what is in it:-
