  1. working server

    Is it just my new AT&T Uverse connection?
    I keep getting:
    SSL connection error
    Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don't have.
    Error code: ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR

    • Search for games on other servers

      I think it would be cool if kaya.gs were somehow connected to other go servers - like goshrine.com or others - so that you could accept a game from there but still play in this client.

      An agreement to share the user-base would mean an instant rise in the number of available games.

      I think many other servers have problems with attracting people today, so maybe some will agree to it.

      Features that both servers don't support should be simply blocked for the duration of the game.

      • advertising

        As we have very few players i think we should try to do some massive advertising about this server.

        For exemple we could ask some go-related sites (gogameguru, go of ten and such) to put some banners .

        I think the real time pro commented games are a very nice feature.
        This banners should be annoncing thoses events.

        Also, posting on KGS everytime such an event happen could bring more poeple in.

        Thanks for reading,
        I hope it will help.

        • change rank request

          You should be able to submit a request to change your rank in case you set it incorrectly upon registration.

          • Longer time settings for games of the bots

            Could you increase the time from absolute 25 min to absolute 30 or 40 min?
            Thank you!

            • more compact lists; you can't have a glimpse of the open games lists for example, without scrolling

              More compact rows, so we can actually see more than 3 items in the open games list

              • About the level

                I realised after I subscribe that I could'nt change my player level from 1k to 20k.....

                It's embarrassing ! Can you do that for me ?

                All players should have 20k level when they subscribe for the first time.

                • where is '/help' ?

                  This is not the right place, but how do I get /help to get to the list of commands?
                  I tried it in the command line, with and without the slash. Then I tried it in the address itself.
                  If it is not perfectly obvious, it has failed. It is very hard and harsh, but that is the rule of the internet community. You cannot change that rule, so you have to live with it.

                  • No way to Delete a game that's finished?

                    perhaps the "Done" button is not working? But I can't seen to find the way to delete a correspondence game that is complete, both players passed and we've scored etc. Am I missing something? Otherwise, thanks so much! Great application. Very much appreciated.

                    • editable rank

                      in setup i was unfamiliar with ranking. now will have to start new profile rather than edit existing. perhaps editable rank would be useful?

                      • Default "1 kyu" leads to accidental 1 kyu initial rating...

                        It should be a required, but EMPTY, field.. and it should be possible if you accidentally create a user as 1kyu, to say, "oops, I meant, 20kyu".
                        My user was created as 1kyu - I guess the only way to fix it is to lose a lot?

                        • "Karma" should be renamed "Dharma"

                          For people who understand the origin of the term, 'karma', it is what you get for doing unhelpful things, and it weighs negatively on your existence; whereas, 'dharma' is the opposite of karma, and cosmically neutralizes one's bad deeds... Would it be so hard/wrong/offensive to just globally change the spelling of your Rewards from 'karma' to 'dharma'?

                          • Improve Game Records

                            First of all, I love your server. The layout is smooth and elegant and the board and stones have natural textures.

                            I have a few criticisms on the game records, however. On the actual website, my game records show the ranks of the players after they won, rather than their ranks before the game, as I believe it should be. This problem persists in the sgf files as well. Secondly, I downloaded an sgf of one of my games and noticed that it showed my opponent as both black and white. Lastly, I would like to note that in another…

                              The goban should have nice legs and stones on the side, it would look like a real life go game and the graphics would be better

                                The message notification icon in the top right corner of the main screen is lit up all bright when you have sent messages that haven't been responded to, but not when someone has a sent a message to you. Seems backwards.

                                  • Colour blind friendly.

                                    The little green circle that appears to highlight stones when you mouse-over a coordinate is basically invisible to colour blind people. It doesn't vary enough from the brown background of the board. It needs to either be a more bright and vivid colour or shade of green, or it needs to blink on and off.

                                        It would be fun if Kaya would make it as a feature, that you can challenge other players for a ten-game match.
