Last move played timestamp

I wonder if players on this website would be comfortable with adding a “last move played” timestamp in the UI, in particular for correspondance games. This question was asked here but I think it was discussed too superficially: Last time here (POLL)🕓 - #11 by Groin

The main reason why I would like this feature added is because I would like to know by how much I missed my opponent in a correspondance game when I notice they played a move. I know, I could use my mail notifications, I’m being lazy. My mailbox is already full and I’m playing Go to stay away from that box. :slight_smile:

I’m curious to know your opinion on this topic.

  • Yes: show last move time
  • No: keep last move time hidden

If you keep you fischer clock maxed, you can easily see how long ago your opponent played by how much time has elapsed on your clock.


That’s a good point! However, it is precise to the hour, so unfortunately it cannot really work. Besides, I can’t assume when the clock was needed before their move.

By the way, I noticed I had the email notifications disabled, so I will be turning those on from now on.

I’d like to see times… but where? Maybe hover over tooltip above the analysis stones?

Why not in the Game Information pop-up?

(sorry about my deleted posts in this thread, I had trouble understanding how the reply function worked on this forum. Thankfully, I figured it out now.)

How about seeing timestamps for all moves after the game is over? This information could provide more context about the game.


Personally I’d be fine with anything, but it is a bit of a privacy issue. I imagine some players might occasionally make moves while formally being working. They might not want a record of that.

For this to become a problem there are several conditions that should be met:

  • the boss should also be a go player and playing on OGS (how often does that happen?)
  • the go player should have a username that can be redirected to their real name (rather careless if you play go during working hours)
  • a player should be so careless that they is caught in the act.

Well if a player is careless with their privacy, they will run into troubles sooner or later anyhow.
