    Does anyone else think that the links for 'notebook" and 'Message opponent" on the game screen are too close together.

    I have not yet entered a notebook message into the message opponent box (thank goodness) but i have dont it the opposite way around a few times...

    so my suggestion is to move them a little further apart - maybe move one of them to a completely different space?

    I've complained about this for years, but my complaints have been dismissed as trivial by others so nothing is likely to change.

    am glad someone agrees at least :-)

    This leads me to the conclusion that few people use the features...

    But to be fair, KLewpie, there has been some support also.

    I guess not everyone would use them - but i would ask why the heck not....if you are a subscriber and therefore have more than 6 games going at any one time, surely you need to use the notebook to remember what your plan of attack might be in that particular game....

    or is it only my memory that cannot cope? :-)

    This has been discussed in some other threads as well so you are not alone. I've actually done that and messaged my opponent my notes by mistake one time.

    Would be nice if it got taken care of as it should be an easy fix.

    I have just been ticked off by an opponent (yet again) for not replying to a message. As usual, I'd typed it in the Notebook box. How long do we have to wait for this tiny bit of coding adjustment (the sequence of options below the submit button) to be fixed? Russ, please. PLEASE. PLEASE!!

    Either that or those of us that use the features make sure we click on the right option.

    They may be close together but one clearly states Message your opponent and the other Notebook

    Pretty difficult to mix them up I would have thought.

    Maybe we should move the Offer Draw further away from the Resign option just in case

    Some of us have Parkinsons and other disabilities, others have vision problems. A bit more friendliness wouldn't hurt.

    I agree. Perhaps outerspace?

    Whenevr I type some note on my game plan into the notebook, I always worry I've typed it into a message to the opp instead!
