    Update the smileys.

    Maybe reverse psychology will work.

    Also, under no circumstances should the Android app be updated so you can do basic things like accept draw offers and create new games.

    Edit: Do NOT center the pieces on the squares, either. Leave them a little to the left. It makes the users appreciate the little things when you see fit to give it to them.

    under no circumstances change the tournaments options to be able to view only those tournaments that you actually are still "in"

    Did it work yet?

    Also, do not update the Games Explorer because it would probably be too much work and the games for the last 3 or 4 years are not that important, probably...

    He is still reading his new book 'How to move the horsey', give him time he'll get there. As soon as he's done with that I'm sure he'll get right on this list.

    I am here guys , but I have been quiet, I agree .

    Since the insanely busy first 9 months of 2013 with the site update and server migration, I had to check out for a bit to take care of some other stuff I deal with.

    But, I have a new build in progress now, which will beta shortly.

    This will focus on a version bump of some libraries we use, a slightly different UI for board analysis*, new chess puzzles, and optional sound for pieces matching the current blitz site.

    * Any further moves to the board are added to the move history, and highlighted in a different colour, so we can remove the existing Previous & Next buttons which I've never been happy with.

    Still "oh-so-pleasant" I see.

    Maybe you should try a different flavor of Cheerios, maybe that flavor is just meant to taste like that.

    It's your site, Russ, if they don't like you taking a break, just tell them to "piss off".**
