It seems that you can only access the text of the messages sent back and forth during a game when it is your move... Why can't it be made available at all times?
Originally posted by David TebbOddly enough, the last message (the one showing above your game) is not in the log, so at the end of as game if there's a parting fairwell or whatever, it never makes it to the log at all.
You can access all the messages sent during a game by clicking on the [b]'message log', which is at the top right of the screen, next to 'game history'. [/b]

I botched the game by interchanging two moves. So I resigned and included a message "You were right to decline the draw offer, because there is a reason peope are rated 200 points below you - and I am proof!"
One thing that I think is missing is the ability to respond to your oponent after they resign or accept a draw. This seems the most important time to be able to respond because often a resignation is accompanied by a 'good game' message and it would be nice to be able to directy respond in kind.
Of course you can message them but its not always clear w ...[text shortened]... all thing but it would be a nice thing to promote civility and good chess relationships.
