Two separate suggestions/feature requests, which I think would be helpful for correspondence games:
- Do not auto-advance (for people using that feature) to the next game, if a conditional move is triggered, or when you make the second pass initiating the scoring phase.
- Add games where you need to confirm the stone life/death status to the rotation of games where it is your turn (as cycled by clicking on the number in the top-right). Also, it would be nice to get an email notification when it becomes your turn to confirm or reconfirm the stone status.
For the first item, it would be nice to stay focused on a single game until it is fully taken care of, rather than having to come back to it after moving onto another game.
For the second item, right now it seems a bit difficult to figure which scoring phase games are waiting for your confirmation rather than your opponents. It seems that the only visual cue is that your name will be in bold next to the game thumbnail. They are easy to overlook, especially since the rotation seems to skip theses cases (i.e., they are not considered as a game where you have a move to make). This is especially problematic if your opponent changes the status of the stones after you first confirm, thus requiring you to reconfirm. Without a email notification, or the game being in the rotation, it’s easy to mistakenly assume that it is just waiting on your opponent’s confirmation and not yours.
Edit: opened a GitHub issue for the second suggestion: https://github.com/online-go/online-go.com/issues/700
