    Hi

    I'd really appreciate if the site owners/programmers could consider a new feature. I play chess to keep in contact with friends and socialise, but one feature that is missing (which you can find on other chess sites) is a type of "shoutbox" chat interface inside each chess game.

    Clicking on a user's profile and clicking "send message" feels so formal. Can't we for example have a "send text" input box directly under "submit move"? When you open the game you can see what your opponent had to say. That way you can have a more "social" experience while playing chess - all online games have a chat-type interface, everything from FPS's to WOW - why not something quick and simple for chess?

    If you are a member of this site and you like this idea, please add your support by letting the site owners know in this thread

    Thank you

    There already is an in-game messaging system.

    When it's your move you should see a link that says "Message your Opponent" in the list of options on the right.

    Now exactly how in the hell did I miss that?!?

    You know I always freak out on users who don't read what is on-screen. Today I can take my own advice (and maybe go easy on everyone I shout at for the next month or so)

    Thank you - that was exactly what I was looking for.
