    Hi,

    It would be really nice if the comments box was open by default for when you're making a move; so you are prompted to bung a comment in when you make a move (to keep the conversation going)

    I used to play on www.chessworld.net and it seemed much more friendly because the comments were more prominent.

    it might also stop that shocker of typing your plans into the message box instead of the notebook: I've only done it twice but that's about half of the times I've ever bothered with plans...

    I've (almost) done that as well. I 2nd (err...3rd) the motion for an auto-opened notebook (optional as a Setting?). Plus I'll 2nd my own suggestion that the size of the box be sufficient to display the entire 250-character max field without scrolling. Not high-priority, just more convenient.

    My great problem is that I need the Notes box open by default.

    The first thing I have done in every game in the last 18 months is to open the Notes box and type in 'NOTES' so that it stays open there after. I write myself notes a fair amount of the time and I got fed up writing them in the Message box and sending to my opponents!! Not that I expect anyone to be able to decifer my notes anyway .....

    I've been working with a bit of a frig; maybe this the solution is to have two Settings - auto-open Message and auto-open Notes.
