how do we turn off "Was so-and-so a Good Sport?" after each game?

talapia

It sounds rather childish, would like to remove.

Interesting ... I have never gotten that message .... Daily and live?

talapia

Yep

I guess there is no solution. This is just a permanent bug in the web site, chess.com.

talapia not being good sport

Ever the contrarian, today the brash american grandmaster talapia was spotted in the fora asking for a method to ignore the new spectacular feature of morally judging his opponent's behavior.  Indeed, according to unnamed insider sources, the chess-playing oreochromis aureas was at wits end to discover a way to return to ignoring an opponent after a game rather than filing an adminstrative behavioral report.  "This is pure chum," said the tilipia of the new feature, which reminded him of an oatmeal-garlic powder bait upon which he once dined.  Not wishing to validate the toxic positivity found site wide, the cichlid was a presstime going on vacation in daily games until such a solution was found and the problem resolved.     

talapia

yeah right. Me, a grandmaster. Just 1,000 more points to go I guess...

A- for Creative Writing though!

I'll fill out a form sometime when the current drifts that a way.

"New feature" would imply I'm a beta tester. That means I'm special! :-)

Next, I want to be made a forum admin...

If you say Yes, it then suggests that you make a Friend request.

If you say No, it then asks if you want to report your opponent's bad behaviour.

So it seems like a good idea, although I always ignore it - there's no compulsion to do anything.

I thought tilapia was a garbage fish.  No offense, but low omega 3's

Wait, if you say opponent was good sport the program prompts you to say "good game". Thereby implying that sticking around to say gg is good sportsmanship.  So are chat disabled folks poor sports, ipso facto?  I greatly prefer the rage quitting variety of sports to the mute, chat disabled sport who loses or wins.  Very frustrating state of affairs all around!

You can ignore it if you like, or you can game the system by always saying no.

I don't like games. I like serious, big boy stuff.

I like guns. Are they serious big boy stuff?

There was a thunderstorm today. The power went out, and that meant I couldn't play chess. I need chess.com to stop the rain. It's clearly a bug in the program.

Currently there is no way to turn it off. Why do you dislike it so much? Chess.com is really trying to be proactive in making sure you enjoy your time on Chess.com and this is one such method for you to let us know. You can of course always ignore it or even hide the console so you don't see it or consider turning on focus mode.

Do you not realise how easy it would be to abuse the option? After every game you could just say the opponent wasn't being sportsmanlike, despite them doing nothing wrong. Also why is it there? Does our response to it get logged somewhere against the user? If not what's the point of it being there?

 

If you want to make sure players enjoy their time on chess.com, make reporting users more transparent and ensure staff respond to it more seriously and with more haste.

 

A little question at the end of each game asking you to give a thumbs up or down to ur opponents behaviour doesn't do anything, and if it does, it can be abused.

We of course would take into account how often someone uses it when deciding how much weight to give someone's report. If you report 100% of your opponents then your reports are virtually worthless.

So by your response it seems it is logged somewhere. What if someone is logged as unsportsmanlike when they did nothing wrong? How are you supposed to know? it's a ridiculous option that's been added. What's the point of it when reporting exists, and with reporting you can provide evidence. 

 

All this does is provides you with a new task of sifting through all the logs. It's redundant, and you just basically admitted it's redundancy. People could just start spamming it, and you would have to manage that somehow. What if someone who is giving a thumbs down to most their opponents are actually being truthful? What if they're not? How are you supposed to know?

I am getting the feeling you are worried about people reporting you unfairly. As long you are kind you really have nothing to worry about.
