    This has probably already been reported, but just in case it hasn't I will report it here. The images library isn't working. The option doesn't come up to grab a pic from the library when trying to insert an image into a message or post, have to grab it off the hard drive. Can manage with it but the library was very handy. 

    Babs, where is this library at?

    It normally comes up when we click on the little tree icon you see here in the comments box Terry. We used to have a choice of getting a graphic we want to insert from our hard drive or from a library of images that we have uploaded images in the past to.  I can only see the option to get off the hard drive.

    I used that function just an hour ago and pulled a image off my desktop that I saved from a site....I inserted and centered it before inserting it on one of my sites in a forum post.  Wonder why yours isn't working.  I didn't know it was even called a library.....

    Terry, you're not listening to what I'm saying :)

    YES, I can do that too, can grab images off my desktop.. but the images library itself has vanished.. the chess.com library that we are able to create within chess.com through uploading and storing images here.. option to retrieve images from there is gone.

  • #504

    Ahhh, now I undersatnd.  Wonder if it wasnt part of this new beta system change.  A few things have vanished....  I never use it much babs.  I am unfamilar with how it worked or what it had in it...

  • #505

    Not sure Terry if it's a deliberate omission of a feature previously provided on old site or an oversight to re-include, or a bug.

  • #506

    All true.  Hope you will get an answer soon.  Sounds useful....

  • #507

    Thanks Terry, as I said it's not an issue that needs urgent addressing.. just some images I had stored there I no longer have on my hard drive.. trashed them..

  • #508

    In one of these threads, erik said they were having trouble with the image library, and so decided to take it out.

  • #509

    Ok, thanks Riga.

  • #510

    Tiny mice have vanished ? (& taken the images with them !)  Smile

    If you are talking about what I think they called the advanced picture management Babs, then I do believe I remember them saying that was removed to save memory or something.

    Yes I can imagine Aidan. Like I said earlier, it was handy  but I can manage without it, :)

  • #515

    Me too. Let's remain adaptable & willing to embrace (some) new-change :)

  • #516

    These little things don't bother me.  There are other issues which bother me a lot more. 

    e.g. Now in vote chess games, before if you didn't vote for ACCEPT DRAW it meant you didn't accept the draw. Now if you don't click on REJECT DRAW your vote is taken as you accept the draw automatically even if you don't click on accept draw. It should be the other way around. Many teams are going to get caught out with this which will be very costly and irreversible if the games are tournament games. A team could be cunning here and try to sabotage games who knows this new little 'trick' and offer a draw in a game they are losing on the hope of catching out their unsuspecting opponent. Already one team was caught out in the Speed Vote Chess Tournament. They did as they always did, didn't click on ACCEPT DRAW assuming it meant the draw would be rejected as it always was in the past. But because 1 player out of the 5 clicked on ACCEPT DRAW and the other 5 players didn't click on REJECT DRAW the draw was accepted.

    There was no warning given to teams of this new change, and many are going to get caught out. Not good!

    There are a few gltches VC Babs. Was unaware of that one !

    Also someone asked me what is % for '' Vote For Draw '' to be accepted & sent to opponents ? 40% or 50% ??

    Anyone know ?

    Chess rules behave like accountancy (IRS, Inland-Revenue, Income-Tax). If  '' loop-hole '' exists will be ruthlessly exploited :)

    Also this has just been reported  by a tournament director of a major Team Match tournament:

    "This is not going to be pretty.  The new site seems to have an even narrower data column than the old one, and even pasting in IE doesn't fix it.  So the team list will paste but the pairing boards won't."

    His job just got harder not easier.

    It  used to  be a minimum of 50% for the draw acceptance to pass and 60% to resign, from memory.

    I am having trouble playing with my Blackberry....I cant resize the board except to make it larger and half the moves I want to make I cant...occasionally I will be able to move a pawn one square by attempting to move it 2...and knight moves are just bizarre...

    This started around mid week after their most recent "upgrade"
