    Why is it that when I go to Your Games and then select Details the board view always has White on bottom, even if I am playing Black in the game? I could always paste the FEN into another program but I would think that should be handled automatically here.

    Yes, this might need to be fixed. Although in the game itself, the orientation will be correct, the game details screen always shows white at the bottom. Personally, I prefer always to see white at the bottom, unless I am considering a move as black. What do people think about this?

    See 'Only one wish' in this same forum. Maybe the 'switch view' button could be applied to any board that is being viewed....

    I think a switch view option would be very useful.

    I agree!

    So do I. Being able to turn the board around and see it from two different angles I think would be very useful.

    It would be logical, that the mini-board default to the colour that you are playing in that particular game.

    It would be useful to have flip view on mini-board too...🙂

    I also think that it will be usefull to flip the view of any board.
    and display the initial view of the mini boards with the color you are playing at the bottom.😀

    Flip board is coming. And you should be able to do it on any view with the exception of the mini-boards.
