private table feature
Posted: Jun 4, 2011, 12:57 AM

so, just dawned on me that there is a button at the tables that should be perhaps divided into two different features.
the private button. it does two things.
1- it keeps player out of your table for when your having a private conversation.
2- although the moves go to the data base there are no names showing, thus you can not simply load the game and you have no idea who played it. the moves must be played one at a time and searched for each move to lead to the next one. a lengthily process. and you must have a memory of the game in order to know which moves roughly to select from on each search. some times i struggle to find a line from a year ago that was done when i was a guest for example, or a game i saw two other guys play while we were all in a private table.

so what if i want a private convo but i don't want to prevent my games from being published publicly in the site's data base? for this reason i think the button should be split into two different buttons.
hope i am being clear, hope it makes sense. thanks for reading.

Those are good points about the games on the database.
I have two more "thoughts" I'd like addressed.
1. a column on the database page showing whether or not a game is rated
2. the names of the players displayed like they are while the games are played - with the adjacent moves
I have trouble remembering who is who.
Thanks for considering these options.

Perhaps the button could be enhanced to prevent endless speculation about the identity of each player?

No, that would be the opposite of privacy wouldn't it?

No. I am refering to the behaviour of others. Never mind.

ahh, less about actual button, more about read in between the lines of another subject? in other words, to be taken in humor, as opposed to literally i gather.

Humor yes, but many a true word is spoken in jest

endless speculation about the identity of some players will always remain, and sometimes for logical reason. this is nature of the internet.
