hi - is it possible to have an icon next to the names of my opponents that are currently online? or a separate list of my opponents that are connected? - cheers

WHILE we are at it, as if you don't have enough to do Thib, I would like an array of happy faces, (emoticons), we could choose from, something more fun than-:) :( :-0 etc. :)

Hello Brian!

This issue was discussed a few months ago, a problem is that players may use this information to play only when their opponents are not connected.

Scott, you mean smilies in the forum?

No Thib, something we could add to the chat to liven it up, :)

Why would anyone want to play only when opponents are not connected? What advantage is there to that?

Also, it is very easy to search the list of connected players to see if a particular player is online.

The aim is either not to receive a reply too early, or to push the opponent towards the flag (I saw that already) during rapid games...

During rapid games, won't each player be online all the time unless a connection problem?

Sorry, I meant rapid "tournaments", not blitz games.

Ah. For what it's worth, it's still very easy to scan or search the list of connected players if one wants to play that way.

sorry guys - I thought it would help to keep a closer eye on the games where my opponents were online ... and know when they disconnected - will search the list of connected players to see who is/isn't online ... cheers
