I meet a lot of people on OGS, but I often forget my experiences with specific players. It would be great if I could add (private) annotations for a user, so it would be easier to remind myself of whether I like to play against them. (A small text box on the profile is all it would take.)
That’s a cool idea
Yeah, I figure it would improve the social interaction. You can even show a tooltip with the annotation on hover over the username, so one could get quick reminders.
Since people can change their user-names at will this could be extra helpful!
Now that you can search any player’s game history for a specific opponent (great feature by the way, thanks OGS team!) I usually just search for my own username and view all of the games played against me. This usually tells me everything I need to know.
That’s helpful indeed, but not nearly as efficient as a one sentence note I could leave for myself. Plus I’m not suggesting to remove history search, just to add a simple improvement to the social aspect of the site.
