Game Chat Notification

No to the question - it’s only really viable for checking the last game. A comprehensive notification system would be great

Great suggestion, it could simply be a notification on the main page, or an item in the main ogs menu, opening a page which displays a list of games where a comment has been added after your last visit to this page, with sorting options like date, opponent, and of course was it a game you played or not.
(Or this list could be displayed in the player’s profile).

What a pity that a game chat notification has not been implemented in the meantime…

Last time we talked about it, OGS conclusion was “break the site chat, too”. :yum:

Wow, looks like this just happened!

Ah that’s a cool feature especially on mobile. Is it working on an unfinished game ? (Especially when playing live)

It shouldn’t notify you while you’re on the game board… I guess that’s a pain for mobile users but good for desktop.

Thanks for the feature add @GreenAsJade :heart: nice to see some of the classics getting knocked off :wink:

It’s to do with this accessibility theme, which changes a few colours around.

I am perfectly sighted (well, above average in any case and with no colour issues) and still highly recommend this theme as, IMO, the objectively best theme we have :heart:

Could there be some delay until game chats start sending notifications? Like dont send notifications until 1 hour has passed from the end of the game. Currently when opponent resigns and says “gg ty” i get 3 separate notifications (game has ended / added chat / the computer has finished analysing…")

I would be perfectly happy if i would receive only 1 notification when my opponent resigns. 2 was redundant but 3 is definitely too much xD

It would also be nice if notifications would go away when you visited the linked page.

But about your one hour suggestion, with live games the comments usually come in within a few minutes, so I wouldn’t want to miss those.

Until the site knows which ones are unread, I’d prefer to get notifications for everything.

Or maybe It’s more about filtering some redundancy created by the system itself (Instead
putting delay, just to eliminate or regrouping )

I wonder if we could combine notifications for the same game. :thinking:

Maybe dont send that “the computer has finished analysing…” notification to site supporters (or mods xD) at all?

Or make it toggleable/optional since I find it quite handy to know when the analysis is done to help review it :slight_smile:

Or everyone ? (With toggle, ok )

I would just like to point out that this new feature rules, and I love it, and thank you for adding it.
