    A new message log has been released which is accessible without navigating to a new page. (Available during play from either the existing 'message log' button, or below any new message you receive during play.)

    A game log has also been added which gives an illustrated summary of the game so far (including message history too). Link next to the "analyse game" link.

    -Russ

    edit : And the in-play message rendering has been modified too.
    edit : Further to above, if you want to hide any message above the board temporarily, just click the '[name] says...' bar.

    I don't mind the message log link with the pop up window, but I think the in game text is a little too big. Also don't see the point in the avatar there. It means more scrolling to see your board, even if the message isn't that long. 😛

    I am open to feedback regarding the text size. I made it slightly bigger because people often complained of missing in-game messages. Hopefully, with the larger text and the avatar, this will not be so easy now. (Note my late edit in the first post regarding hiding the message area)

    Open to feedback and suggestions though. I'll go with the majorities' opinion on this one.

    The game log will be made available from a slightly modified 'my games' page in the next few days too.

    Russ, you say you are open to feedback to the size of the text in the new feature.

    Any chance you can make it a vote instead?

    If not then feedback will be sent but with a vote, others will be able to see the progress??

    Why not make the text size customisable?
