I don't really need to put notes
notes should be more conspicuous. the entire reason for using a note would be to remember something that i might not - if it's not available on the page when i go to that game, i would never think to check the notes tab. it should have an indicator to let you know you left a note.
I have just joined this site and i am still learning if anyone could send me a message full of tips i would be very greatful.
i never knew it was there until this question
I use it for self-monivation!
i usually don't remember it's there. I'd use it more if I could.
I don't use it because I'll just forget I left myself a note the next time I move.
I don't use it because it's too small and doesn't have formatting. I use Evernote instead to keep track of my thoughts during the game.
I keep my on personal notepad. I have never use the in game "private notes" I like haveing it their just in case, I can use it to remind me of something about a game I may have played or the player. Also I may not allways have my notepad with me.
I use it to mark "+" after opening is ended. So, if i see "+" i know: there is no need to use opening explorer anymore.
I seldom use it, but when I do it's to remind me of something I have planned. This may be variations or text.
I use this feature intensively now, and find it really valuable. For most moves I will assess position, think about threats and candidate moves, and come back later to explore candidate moves, before coming back at least once to double check and confirm.
Yes dont drop the feature...Can we have it with interactin of variations as well, of some sort ?!?
When I get more serious I probably will use it more. Don't drop the feature, please!
I haven't used it. I just discovered it recently during my first rated game. I never noticed during all my prior unrated games. I guess an actual rated game makes you look at everything more closely... :)
My answer is none of the above ... aware of it, but never use it. Probably not a bad idea when you have multiple games to keep track of, especially those with similiar but subtly different positions.
sometimes i don't even remember the game ("hey, how did i get here?"). so i write down my plans just to avoid thinking it all again.
p.s.: i already lost a game because i didn't remember the analysis i made and i chose a random move, being short of time.
3, but only in the case of 4.
Also in important match games I might write some sort of simple personal reminder, like stay focused, or kick butt.
I never use it
