Game Archive?

pizzapier

How do I get to my game archives for Live Chess and Online Chess on the new chess.com?   It used to be a simple click away on the old system.

There are a couple of ways but there is a menu item for it under the Play section. Play playhand.png > Archive archive.png

@Martin_Stahl  Thanks for the reply, but I found it on my own this afternoon.    I just now logged in to tell the Forum.  Again, I apologize for any inconvenience.

Actually, there is an important difference between the new archive and the old.  I used to be able to page back further more easily, if for instance I knew that the game I was looking for took place a long time ago.  It allowed me to select how far back I wanted to go easily and with one click.  Now I have to keep manually paging back only one page at a time.  Is there a workaround for this?

Martin_Stahl

As far as I'm aware, there is no workaround at this point. It is unlikely that pagination will be added, based on information I have seen fro erik.

I think it's down again possibly? I've not gone to the archive for a while so it's possible that I'm wrong, but I think it's inaccessible. If I'm wrong, please tell me how to get there. Thank you.

my question about deleting some archives, which are several years old is still not answered.   I left chess.com about 3 years ago because of the same issues.  If you will not go back to the old system which was easy to understand you will be losing more players.  What made you change the format??? crossing2

You can't delete your archives. Once a game is played it stays in the database and will be accessible there.

Correct, if we allowed you to delete games it would royally screw up the rating system.
