    • game history and review tools

      the own game history in the profil should work like a folder. there can be stored all sgf the user likes. the next step to is an easy to use review tool. forget all the numbers and letters like at KGS. if it is possible it would nice to "draw" with the mouse on the goban.

        • Dispute Resolution

          Let players decide before a game starts whether the game will be subject to dispute resolution. If so, then once the game is complete, if there is a dispute during the process of marking live/dead groups, then one player can invoke the dispute resolution, and the game goes into a list. If someone is available to look at the game in real time, then they can, otherwise it can happen any time after the fact.
          The arbiters could be volunteers of equal or greater rank than the players, and they would make the final decision about life/death. This would prevent…

          • Finer audio control.

            I use speech recognition software which simply does not work in KGS or IGS so I definitely want Kaya to succeed.

            Unfortunately, if I mention the competition in chat with my opponents, I get some insane music and background changing.

            The music interferes with my dictation.

            I like to hear the stones but I'd do not want to hear the random noises. As it stands, I can only mute or unmute.

            Thanks for reading.

              • Internal pictures

                I'm one of those many people who *hate* making accounts for things. I made an account for kaya, and that should be enough. I don't want to give me email and make an account with any third-parties, like 'gravatar'.

                Your should implement a system that lets users upload pictures directly :)

                  • Message area in the main room

                    My idea is that the programmer/admin post some interesting, actual, important messages in bold in the mainroom in a special field or area for all members - in regular intervals. That could be new features, deadlines, known bugs, hints, instructions and so on.

                    • Please use the UK flag for the English language option!

                      Just a little thing, but the way KGS uses the American flag is very irritating. The language comes from Britain, not America, and American English is just another dialect, nothing more.

                      • Shuusaku number tracker

                        How about a profile feature that you can use to input your Shuusaku number, and the players you are connected through. Then, if anyone plays you, their profile will update to show their new connection to Shuusaku.
                        Accepting a new connection should be optional so that people who have fake numbers don't ruin your actual connection.

                        As an example, if I had played Shuusaku, I would write in my profile that I have a number of 1, and I am directly connected. Then, anyone who later plays me can accept their new number of 2, and their profile would show…

                            • Badges!

                              Everyone loves badges. I'm talking "merit"-style badges, like the ones you earn for doing things. Won your first game? Get a badge! Beat someone who's ranked much higher than you? Get a badge for that, too. There could be badges for observing a certain number of games, completing a certain number of tsumego, or just about anything.

                              Badges could be optionally displayed on profile pages, so people who don't care about them could just disable that and not worry about it. But for everyone else (surely the majority of players, especially newer ones) this could be a blast!

                                    I don't know much about teaching go, but how about the idea to be able to, not only like in KGS to draw with definied forms and mark stones, but free style drawing when you open a Sandbox game or review a game after it is over? Could also be a lot more smooth then always have to click on stones to mark them, so your students/observers knows what stones you talk about and maybe also be usefull for other things? Should then naturally also be possible to undo drawing things easier, maybe with a button or and eraser, else…
