    When viewing player profiles, the "Last move" text will now indicate "Last live Game" if that player has played a live game since their last regular move. (Note : Last game is recorded at game conclusion)

    Also, the total number of live games played is shown on the player stats.*

    So there is now a distinct stat section for Daily/Correspondence chess and Live Chess. (Live chess is hidden if no games played)

    Daily/Correspondence -> Calendar icon
    Live -> Electric bolt/flash icon

    I had noticed some players appeared to be completely inactive, or had abandoned their accounts right after sign up, but in fact, went on to play live chess. Their games were not previously reflected on their profile. More live stats will arrive in future (distinct from the daily chess stats), so this is a first step.

    *This figure does need to be corrected for prematurely abandoned games, but is mostly accurate.

    Just checked - no issue either.

    A site update did take place 2 days ago, but not to target this issue. So 🤷‍♂️..

    My Fire is reporting last update 14th March - I was expecting a recent update to explain this.

    Clan results graph now fixed too. (Clan 24514)

    Both issues were related to this mornings maintenance. (Thread 193177).

    A timeout suspension is currently in place due to the maintenance work (Ref : Thread 193177 ) unexpectedly exceeding an hour.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    A scheduled outage took place today at approx. 6:00 (GMT/UTC).

    This was far larger in scope (server maintenance, specifically database) than last week, and again, took longer than expected.

    As a result, server timeouts will be suspended for 24 hours.

    Apologies for the delay, and thank you for your patience.

    Phase #2 of this work takes place tomorrow AM (UTC) so expect a short outage.

    (Approx 10 mins.)

    Keep an eye on twitter for updates

    The post that was quoted here has been removed
    It will be interesting to see if a Daily Chess branded app gets traction though, so it is worth the small investment of time to experiment.

    But if I want to use an app, I have to install the RHP branded app. Could this be addressed in the future?
    You probably will not be surprised to know his has been considered before - as DailyChess.com is relatively popular as an alternative brand for the site. (I use it myself too since the others were retired )

    There are a few caveats - social media authentication (Facebook/Google) are popular on the apps, and they are tied to the RHP app specifically.

    Having said that, I will build a DailyChess variant (meaning : conditionally brand the current app, so not too much effort) which uses email login alone - and if it gains traction - then workarounds can be investigated for the authentication issues.

    Note : This would be Android only initially.

    If your subscription payment is processed by Stripe (rather than PayPal) then you will see a "Manage Billing" option next to your subscription on the My Subscription page.

    I'll check if a sort option can be implemented soon and bundled with the Thread 193095 work. I don't foresee any issue in doing so other than UI considerations.


    edit : This thread and Thread 193095 will be moved to the Site Ideas forum.

    @Nick812

    This didn't make it to the app - and for no good reason I can recall. Its now on the "todo" whiteboard - as I see no reason why this can't be added and released fairly promptly.
