Game reviews - is it possible to add something in commentary box of the moves?


#1

There are a lot of very helpful players out there who leave a review after I played with them.

When I read through their comments in the comments box I quite often would like to answer or add something concerning the comment of a certain move.
Either I cannot find that option or it is missing.
The only workaround I found is to use the chat box and then commenting like “move: xx blablablah”. It is kind of awkward because my answers are detached from the original comment in the comment box and it leads at least at my laptop (1400x900 pixels) to a lot of scrolling in the chat box.

Hope I made myself clear. If not I added a scrennshot.

While I’m on it: There is a lot of black unused void left and right of the Goban. But the textboxes can only widened to the right leaving no possibility to use the void.

Hello, the answer is yes and no :slight_smile:

Only one person can fill the comment boxes at once. That will probably not be changed as it could lead to horrible mess when two people would be typing at once, text would overlap one another and it would be confusing to anyone watching - not knowing whether it is the “teacher” typing or someone else. For questions and such chat is better in my opinion. You can also share variations there.

That said, the author of the review can give anyone the power to fill the comments instead of him/her by clicking on player’s name and selecting give control. If needed just ask the reviewer for control :slight_smile:

When you share a variation, it is quite literally attached to the move it started from.

Wasn’t accounting for that possibility.

Good advice!

All that you’d need to change would be to add a “submit” button on the comments and treat them the same way the main chat log gets treated.

I abuse the title of the variation sometimes to comment.
