- most of your problems comes from the graphics drivers
issue. I wouldn't develop workarounds for that but rather solve it (Jon
is on it).
- 2 buttons for resign and reject is totally fine
according to GUI standards: they are 2 distinct actions. If we make only one,
how do we label it ? "Resing/Reject" ? Or have a label that dynamically
changes between reject and resign ? Both bad imho. 2 buttons is fine (one grayed
outwhen appropriate is perfect).
- what's 'the score' you would like to see along the
match ? Your FIBS rating ? Your Error rate ? Both would be almost pointless,
even more if they take into account all your past matches (they would barely move
during one match after you have played, say, 100 matches).
- the wild swings in FIBS rating are unavoidable:
estimating your (FIBS) rating with a single match (most often a short/mid one) is
essentially impossible. You will have to look at long term averages.
- forum/mailing list: I know I will be labelled as
"old school" but I wouldn't trade the currnt mailing list for a fancier forum.
The mailing list is a developper maliling list. No real need for structure (topic,
subtopic, subsubtopic) and/or fancy emoticons, singatures etc. Plain text is also
enforced (I believe). However, if anybody wants to create a forum for gnubg
users around the world, this could be a good idea.
