How can i send a message to another.....


how can i send a messages to another member of FICGS ? Is it only possible by playing with a member move by move, or is there another way ? It would be nice to send a message to anyone anytime.

I agree ...

This would be a nice feature! Those who do not want to be contacted should be able to opt out. The rest of us should be able to communicate freely. The more we foster international communication, even over the chessboard, the better the world will become for all.

I don't think a kind of webmail could be really useful... Emails could be displayed (player's choice) for connected players only. What do you think ?

What about this case...

An opponent just resigned and said "good game" to me in his message. But now his game no longer shows up in my messages, so how can I answer him and express my gratitude for a good game?

Hey, Don I'm sure he reads these forums! So he might have already seen the post of yours.

True, but...

Thanks, Dinesh. But that is not the same to me as being able to send a personal message. -- don

Re: True, but...

Don, Check with Thibault. He might perhaps later decide to include a feature where post-game communications may be possible with an opponent. (I think ICCF has this particular feature).

Hi Don.

A way is to leave a public comment... I'm thinking about a funny and efficient way to "connect" players (who want to be). Not so easy... All ideas welcome :)

re: private messages

ICCF allows this by keeping finished games in a players current game list until the player decides to remove it. This way players can continue to exchange messages about their game until at least one decides to stop. -- Don
