Button For Malkovichifying A Chat Entry In Game Chat?


it’s happened for the millionth time: I accidentally made a comment in game chat instead of in the Malkovich Log.

I’m terribly embarrassed and ashamed, even thinking of stopping to write M Log entries because I just don’t always remember to click the Button to the left of the game chat text box that changes it to the green M Log.

Would it somehow be possible to code something so that one can move a game chat entry to the M Log after it has been posted?

I’m curious, what did you accidentally say instead of Malkovichifying?

Aargh! :smiley:

It’s happened SO OFTEN to me … usually it’s my evil world board domination plans, sometimes with variations, at other times it’s about how clueless I feel, or some thoughts about my last moves or about what I fear that my opponent will do.

This time it was this:

It’s not really something bad, but … it may simply be annoying or demoralising for my opponent, which I definitely don’t want.


I dont think I have the power (coding wise) to change the status of a chat entry, but if you can think of user interface changes that would help avoid this mistake, I’d be happy to code them up for trial.

I can’t think of one yet, but I can imagine that if/when we get Private Logs I will definitely want this protection (I can’t bring myself to use Malkovich for this purpose, just knowing that my opponent can see it if they are so inclined).

That’s right, this functionality must be added to the OGS API for it to be included in the UI.
