Komi cannot be chosen when making a demo board. The default komi of the chosen ruleset is used and cannot be edited later. But what if, for instance, I wanted to create a review of an old game that used 0 komi?
As a workaround, you can upload an sgf (with the desired settings) into your library and then review that game, which should retain all the info.
But yeah, seems needless.
Here’s the live relay of a game in the German Championship Finals where it would have been nice to be able to set the Komi—to 7 in this case—, as the mentioned workaround wouldn’t make sense in a live relay:
Wouldn’t have made a difference in the result in this case—B+1, the demo board says B+1.5—but still … would be nice if it were possible.
I edited the topic to make it a little clearer that this is not just some chit-chat
Also would be helpful for setting correct komi on smaller boards (25.0 for 5x5, 9.0 for 7x7, 7.0 for 9x9 and 13x13).
(All my rengo challenges these past few days have manually set komi (13x13) to 7.0)
Zero komi would be useful for setting up endgame puzzles in demos and making the math easier. (Example where komi was a distraction)
OGS is constantly being developed (I can’t take any of the credit) but the road to progress is indeed “bumpity”.
