    Well, I don't like it! (and that's being overly polite!)

    Why, for pity sake is it now only possible to move two pieces in conditional move setting?? What a ridiculous backward step that is!
    It has annoyed me so much I will likely not play here in future.

    Please provide more details, this sounds like a bug.

    I click on conditional moves & it says position 1 of 1, then I move a piece and it says 2 of 2, I move opponents piece & it says 3 of 3. I can then not move anymore pieces.

    Also when i go to conditional moves there is one of each piece in each colour underneath the game board. What's THAT all about!??!

    If I may say, I don't like this update at all. It is messy and confusing, the site overall does not look nice. I much prefer the previous site where I have been playing for years. Is it possible to return to the old RHP? Thanks.

    I'll be looking at the iPhone web app shortly - others have noted that it is not working since the update. By the end of today, most issues like this will be resolved. Timeouts have been suspended in the meantime.

    Yes I agree, now that I have overcome the shock of the change in looks, I notice it is a lot faster.

    I know it's not the most important thing in life but its annoying as I was really enjoying the games I was having and I use the feature all the time.
    (I don't know what OTB means)
    The kettle is on and I'll try to relax but it's like someone just broke my favourite toy! 😉

    Who should I speak to for fixing the problem?

    OTB = Over the board.

    I can't claim any significant speed increase with this update*, but now the update is done, we can now look at our long overdue hosting review.

    Due to the age of our servers now, the update will be significant when it happens in next few months.

    Edit : For just site rendering, yes, it is faster.
