Oof, I used friends list quite a bit to keep track of students online, or whether they were in games. Really stinks to lose this.
Guys stop pinging the boss please
Hope this will be back soon ,very useful!
During these tough days, many people are staying at home, and a lot of them play on lichess... so we have to be patient if some things change or if lichess becomes slow from time to time.
@thibault do you think you can do a place where nice and kind players can go like a leader board it might seem chessy but I think that it would be a good idea can someone reply so I can see if people are with me thanks
I'm a big fan of the friends list but it's a small price to pay to keep things smooth. It's really impressive how lichess is handling the huge increase in users, especially considering there isn't a team of employees working on this stuff. Big thanks to everyone working behind the scenes.
I donate. @thibault good luck solving problems of a large number of users.
thanks for answering what i was looking to ask. i did not realize things were slow. perhaps for those who like me missed the reason for its lack, put a constant sign in place that doesn't need to be updated every tenth of a second?
@VTChess same here. Hope it isn't too long before the feature comes back.
