    At the moment the PGN Games Displayer...

    (I know it will have a technical name but I'm not a technical name dropper)

    ....starts with the final position.

    Any chance it can start with the initial line-up like it does on every site.

    I anticipate (like the good little chess player I am)
    that someone is going to come on and ask why.

    Anon.Poster Why?

    Because when they get around to allowing the PGN Games
    Displayer to start from set positions. (very soon).

    People will be posting problems, combinations and blunders.

    As things stand the solution would be displayed instead of the set poisition.

    Yours, in further anticipation,

    sound like a good idea and simple to implement

    I think the technical term is: PGN Games Moving Thingy Bob.

    Don't know why what I said is in the quote box. I put it outside the quote thingy bobs.

    At one time the PGN Games Moving Thingy Bob would only allow
    one game per post.

    In my 'Bates Motel' forum I have 10 miniatures posted in the same
    post. And over 60 in the same thread.

    If you get them to play all at once they move very very very slow.

    Just thought you might like to know that.

    Still only one fen position per post though - it would be handy if
    we were allowed more than one fen in a post.

    The reason that they play slowly is due to your PC. The PGN viewer is a javaScript doodah - meaning that your PC (and not the RHP servers) do all the work of moving the pieces.

    Of course I knew that,, I was not blaming RHP.

    One day I hope to save up enough money to go to the isle of Java
    to study there to learn all about the scripting.

    Do they speak English on Java or will I have to learn Javanese?

    In Javanese, there are a total of nine vowels:

    However, only five vowel diacritics, known as sandhangan swara,
    are used because some diacritics can be used for two different vowels.

    It looks complicated and yet these people have turned it into a
    computer language. How very clever.
