    I use the notes facility rarely, but find it useful in close games.

    However, because I use it only rarely, when I am trying to get through a large number of games quickly, I sometimes (stupidly) forget to read my own notes, forget my intended strategy / tactics and lose games that I could have won if only I'd taken my own advice.

    Any chance the notes section could be more prominent to avoid this or have a setting so that you users can request notes be displayed more prominently, or even acknowledged, before proceeding to make a move?

    What would really be good would be to have message box and notebook box separated from each other and displayed with different background colours.

    I haven't told my opponents my next moves yet.
    But I've definitely wished my notebook good luck and a good game

    haha, I did that once where I sent my whole strategy to my opponent. I had to message him back after that.

    Oddly enough in that game it may have actually worked to my advantage because I had a note in there about what I would do if he made a certain move (one of his better moves) and I think that actually dissuaded him from playing it.

    So I totally agree it makes sense to distinguish it from the message window.
