We need to come up with a scrolling list somewhere so that members can see theres' someone in there wanting to play.

Whatcha think?

I asked the admin to add a symbol by RTC on the front page to show that someone is there. They didn't understand me Perhaps you'll have better luck

I think you should put up a RTC poll. How often do you visit the RTC area in a week? How many games do you play in a week?

hello all,

I have tried to create a tournament in RTC but it seems that the parameters are set up for correspondence chess... ie: the times are in days not in minutes... Could someone have a look at that? Also one suggestion to have people playing in the RTC is to have some bot been constantly available for a game.

I asked the admin to add a symbol by RTC on the front page to show that someone is there. They didn't understand me Perhaps you'll have better luck."

What he is saying is an idea like this:
Remember when I asked you to show a note when a member has a message in his/her message box? I asked for a blinking cursor, but you did better by showing a number representing how many messages were in the box.

You could use the same idea by tracking the number of members that are IN the RTC area!
Just count the numbers and update a number next to the RTC icon. It would go up & down as people went in and ledt - but it would definitely increase the number of RTC players.

As I watch, I can see a member go into RTC, see that nobody is there, and leave. 5 min later another person does the same thing!

If there was a way to place a number by the RTC box our members would run in there to play!

Fixed, you need to clear cookies to see these changes.

On your computer, open Chrome.
At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
At the bottom, click Advanced.
Under "Privacy and security," click Site settings.
Click Cookies and then See all cookies and site data.
At the top right, search for the website's name.

Max has made changes to the RTC icon (which shows up in the main menu at the top left). You can tell by the icon if anybody is in the RTC area or not just by the icon.

To see the difference do this:
1) write down your user name & password
2) clear all the cookies from chesshere.com

Then log back in (you'll have to type in your username & password). Then you can see the changes in the RTC icon.

It's a great new feature because as soon as you go into RTC others will know somebody is in there!

Cheers,
abbyknot

It is a MAJOR change!

NOW the RTC area shows the number of the people who are IN the RTC area waiting for a game!

If you don't see this then (make sure you write your password down) and then CLEAR the cookies for chesshere,com.

After that log back in, sign in, and you will be able to see the number of people in the RTC area!

Nice upgrade MAX!

Yes, on the top menu (near the RTC icon) there is a green number - this is the number of players in real time and shows the number of the people who are waiting for a RTC game.
Nearby, the red number shows the total number of public and private invitations to play in the RTC area:
https://www.chesshere.com/play-chess/
If you saw a red number greater than zero >0 , then invitations appeared to you personally or for any player (public) you can go into this RTC area, select a game from the "Invitations Center" table and click the "Join" button to start the game with your opponent.

This is a fantastic new feature because you can see if other members are in RTC as you are doing other things by looking at the Main menu!
I had some problems because I could not get this screen - I kept getting the 'OLD screen' that didn't show the numbers.

But I finally found the problem. Here's what you MUST do:

1) write down your password for the site.
2) Go into your Browser Settings.
3) Clear all cookies for chesshere,com.
4) Go into the Cache area (very important).
5) Delete all the cache images.

If you've only cleared the cookies you won't see the proper screen because there is the 'old picture' that your browser will load from the cache. Delete it by deleting ALL images.
