    Hey Russ and crew... I know I've asked this before, but I'm going to nag now. Why? Because I'm addicted to this wonderful site.

    Please, pretty please, pretty please with sugar on top, make the notpad editable between moves, some way. I'm dying here.

    I've got an ongoing game. That I REALLY want to win, if only because I've been playing really boldly, sacrifices and such, and have gotten myself a big advantage from it. My opponent just set a trap. I caught it just in time to stop it. But I caught it after pressing the move button. Its subtle. If I forget it before he moves again, I will lose the game. And then I will cry bitter tears.

    This happens all too often. HELP! We love you...

    So when did the pen and paper become un-invented?

    Ever thought of a REAL notepad, you know, one made of paper? Lay it next to your computer, on your mouse perhaps, so you won't forget it.

    Agreed.
    That's a feature I've been craving since the first month I registered.

    That has a certain practicality problem, especially as the number of plans and length of a game. I've got images of an illegible pile of paper, with ink streaks and scratch-outs and notes in the margin like "IGNORE THIS! IT LOSES THE ROOK TO gxd4!! Qf3 Nc1!!" Multiplied over 20, 30, 40 games.

    It would be ideal to just be able to flip through the "my games" list, study a position for a few minutes in between moves, and make notes.

    I see that Russ has already taken it for action, but I wanted to bring up another point. I play from several locations and don't really want to lug a RHP notebook around with me (I'd never here the end of it from my wife or co-workers). I think the notepad in the margin is a great idea.

    This work has now been completed, just a little testing remaining.

    I will probably release it this weekend when the site is a little quieter.

    Now live. You can also edit your notes once the game has finished, if you should ever feel the desire to do that.
