It specifies the automatic refresh period of main page and game pages. Some people wanted me to add this feature because they didn't want to press "Refresh" button in their browsers to see if it is their turn.
I am not sure if it works with WebTV.
I read that you plan to add new features like chat, tourneys and such using Java. That may mess up webtv users as it can't support it. Thats just one of the limitations of the system. I like this site a lot and glad i found it and plan to be here a lot and as soon as able become a paid member. I would hate if there were things i could not do like enter a tourney..
Don't worry about that. All "extra" features like Java applets and similar ones will be optional. WebTV users don't have to turn them on. I have a WebTV emulator so I can test what works with that and what does not.
And I think you'll be able to enter tournaments :-)
Question? Am i right that if you resign it will cost you the game? Say i decided i didn't want to play someone who hasn't even made a move after several days or play in a long match that was setup. Shouldn't there be an option to delete if the game has not progressed too far?
I can add a Delete option if no player made more than one move. Otherwise I'm not sure how to determine conditions for deleting a game. What if your opponent is on two-week vacation and he set this vacation in his Settings, would you take it as "not progressed too far"?
No if there was notification the player was on vacation that would be cool, at least you would know. What i was getting at was if say you decided you didn't want to play a 5 game match and the game hasn't started you could opt out. Being new and not knowing the conditions of the match ie highest score at the end determines winner. I prefer the certain # wins myself. I am not trying to weasel out of a game its just i like more normal games.
There should be that option. I do know that people start games and because of real life can not come online and move frequently, thats not the issue. If you change your mind about a game you should be able to opt out as long as no moves were made. I am continuing the game i have and thats not why i brought all this up. Sometimes people just change their minds.

I am a NTL user with the browser update. I have seen a few problems like graphics not loading fully. Too resolve this i had to fully exit the site & return via ntldtv.! Is this a similer problem to yours.?
That was some trip I had to take to change my password. Good thing I saved my activation code or would never got back in. When I changed my password - I got a flashing screen that wouldn't do anything. My IE bar kept flashing, log-in, do-login. yet there wasn't anyway to log-in.
(hide) If you are waiting for your turn, click on "change" next to the "refresh" on the main page, then set refresh the page to 30 seconds to get your turn to move displayed faster. (Servant) (show all tips)
