AH, you are talking about the abbreviated algebraic notation. I do not use it as I do not like it for the reasons that you state.

P-K4 is P E2-E4. On this site it is e2-e4. I am not sure why Pawns are disrespected so much that they do not get a "P". As much as I do not like Pawns, I still put a "P" for them when I keep notation. I may not like them, but I know they are of key importance to Chess and many variants. I want to see it spelled out. Just writing e4 does not work for me.

You might try changing the settings as that is how it appears on the Chess variants I play.
It appears as e2-e4 instead of e4.

Walter Montego: to me its much simpler to use for the same reasons you give for algebraic.. Algebraic too confusing to me.. I cant visualize the board with algebraic. I need to see the "X" for a capture which isn't present in algebraic. when I see something in notation for example E4,, what is moving to E4? I need to see "P"

Subject: Re: Notation
Nothingness: I do not use notation as I no longer record the games. I used to use algebraic notation for recording Dark Chess games as it is easier to follow a game when the site uses it instead of having an option to use descriptive notation. The algebraic notation is simple and doesn't have hardly any ambiguity in use. Why do you prefer descriptive notation? Force of habit? Both notations work, why not use the one that is easier to find in current writings?
