No one cares who your friends are.

My friends apparently did.  Every one of them who has been online since the new site rolled out has dropped me from their friend list.  I guess being friends with me was too embarrassing of a public humiliation to suffer.

I usually only have that effect on women.  Hrm.  Oh well.


I like the new Site Design, The new Interface is friendly to use ( on PC )

Good job, Thanks !


Has anybody looked at fixing the way the site displays on apple products?  The pinch function (to resize items on the screen)  doesn't work on my iPhone, so diagrams, games, etc. don't fit on my screen.  I usually browse the blogs and articles from my phone or iPad.  Not much fun at present.


A comment was made that 1 day was too soon to cancel as owners listen to feedback. I've been here long enough to know is utter BS


Probably been mentioned already but there are too many pages on this thread to go through.

The new Online Chess section needs to remember whether you select Grid View or Table View. I don't like the grid view and want it to stay as a table but I have to change it every time I log on. Would be nice if it just remembered my preferences.


The new format is not as "smartphone" friendly as the old format, IMO....I have more memory problems than ever before. On my smartphone the last thing I need is to be seeing every board from every game I have in progress....that is just so unnecessary. The rest of the changes are no big deal. 


Please change the position of "Delete" button in group notes, to the same line as time-stamp.



People use IE??


I don't really like this new version.

Why don't you guys consider adding a "Switch to old look" button, for those who don't really like the new look?


I was offered the new page and went back to the old, probably because I am a senior member of  But now that it has been thrust upon me I actually prefer it to the old way!!!

I only have one complaint.

The complaint is that when you look at the statistics it is impossible (at least on my computor) to actually see the ratings when scanning along the 'Chess Stats' bar graph!!

Keep up the good work, is still the number one site, thanks guys!!


PLease remove the sign from this message box,it annoys the hell out of me to be told every time to be polite,helpful,and relevant.

This has already destroyed the jovial nature of this site. 


I disagree, most of us are polite, helpful etc:  but it's a nice extra touch to be kept in my opinion.


I've created some simple but useful menues for all group admins. You can easily add them as favourites/bookmarks in your browser.

In Internet Explorer 9 can you even add them to the Favourite Bar. This makes the life much easier for all group admins!

Here some more info about this:

Good Luck!

Here how it look like in my browser:


Hopeless - why change - can't cope I am off to site that doesn't change - why do this - small changes yes but why so much ? what was the demand for it ? I am resigning all my games - hopeless


@NineofWands please let me know when you find one.


good point - went completely down the pan went it changed some years ago - hopefully iccf will not change and I may try chesscube again.


lots more great ideas and suggestions - thank you!

if you are on IE9 and still see the UPGRADE message, please check if you are in compatability mode (click that little button to toggle it): 


just all froze up on me when i pressed post comment without writing anything - had to clear cache - i have fonts crossing over each other in group comments - does anything actually work on this new design - where are the positives - are they listed somewhere - i better go and look - and why are w s faint?

what's BS - that we don't listen? come on!! :) i've read more than 2,000 forum comment threads and sent hundreds of personal messages in the last 2 days alone discussing with members how to improve the site. find me another website owner of a site with 5 million members who does that :)



Any idea when/if the Privacy issue would be resolved?  My 'friends' list, tactics / mentor ratings should be allowed to be hidden. I really (and many others also) HATE the idea that just anyone, by going to my home page would have access to my 'friends' list, etc. Not everything should be available to everyone.
