    The flip board option should be a "must" on a chess site since allows to better visualize your opponent's point of view and helps a lot when calculating his replies,threats,captures,combos in response to my move.
    This feature would be very helpful and appreciated.

    I couldn't agree more. In fact, I tried to get the same thing implemented in this thread:

    Russ, what is the chance of this getting implemented in the future?

    I believe I can recall this function to be present in the beta version of the new board. I don't have a clue where that beta version can be found again, though. And I don't know when the new code will be iimplemented for all.

    FLIP-BOARD OPTION, YESSSSS!!!

    also, how about an enhanced messenger function so one could communicate with their opponent in real time, independent of whose move it is - Im new to this site, am enjoying it very much, but the messenger seems to be the weak link

    thanks, rod porter

    There are PMs for that. This is a chess site primarily.

    I know, I know.

    I am almost ashamed to say the new board code was 90% finished in March/April this year, but hasn't been released.

    I believe some of the changes I made were a little ambitious to roll out, and I need to recode some of it.

    Once the in beta 'my games' page is out there, the board code is back to be my priority again.
