  1. Disable or remove Export option for non-owners

    I would prefer not to allow games in my database to be downloaded by anyone other than me, the owner. They can view them right here. Chess Microbase is a great tool and has much potential, but I get the feeling that needed changes will not be made. I cannot find anywhere on the internet where I can build a private database of games from our club, and limit it to just certain viewers. Sharing the link is not secure enough, but it's my only choice right now. If you were to develop a way for an owner to specify…

      • Hide databases from search engines.

        Hi, I just purchased premier membership to store our games from our chess club. We do not want these games to be public as we have juniors who compete in World Youth Championships. Can you implement a feature that turns off indexing and following by the search engines? It should be fairly easy. This is the meta tag needed: <meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow>. There is good information on this at this website: https://yoast.com/prevent-site-being-indexed/

          At the moment, if I upload a pgn file with comments and lines it can't handle that

          • Allow Users to Copy the FEN

            There should be an option in the "Export" or "Share" menus to "Copy FEN" which would simply add the FEN to the users clipboard. Alternatively, the site could show a pop-up with the text and users could copy that. This would allow easy sharing of positions from games in our databases. I use microbase to organize teaching material, and I often share FENs from games as problems for students.

              • keep training mode enabled between boards.

                I use this microbase for coaching, and its really useful, except for one thing. When I move to the next board, training mode unenables, and the kids can see the answers. It means I have to go through a lengthy process (switching on and off the board, since it doesn't have a pause option) to ensure the kids do not see the answers.

                • email pgn to chess microbase

                  I would like to be able to automatically email my games to my chess microbase. Some chess playing sites have the user configurable option to have all games played automatically sent to you. This would be a good use of my games landing in one location.

                  • Allow point and click input

                    Currently, you can input moves by dragging and dropping. I believe it should also be possible to click on a piece and click the desired square to input moves. I really need this behavior when presenting on smartboards in classrooms. It would also be good if graphic annotations accepted this behavior.

                      • Database limit should be larger than 1000 games

                        I believe that there should be a higher limit on microbases than 1000 games. I think 5000 might be reasonable. For instance, I am working on a database of checkmating patterns that I use for teaching. I will easily have more than 1000 examples.

                        • Allow a Paste PGN feature when editing a single game.

                          I noticed a Paste PGN feature, but this feature would be more useful if it was allowed when we edit a single game. For example, if I import a series of games from an event, and some of the games have no moves because I didn't receive the game score, I would like to go in and edit that single game later, and just paste the PGN, but that option is not available when editing a single game.

                                          Each game is a different story to tell. It would be nice to give those storys a title and a "foreword". Books with chess games mostly give the game a title and foreword. (for example "Bobby Fischer - My 60 memorable games")

                                          It is possible to add notes to moves, but it would be cool to have a "general note".
