1st; i want to say that i really appreciate that the TL homepage shows games in progress and current positions (especially when there are many games running).

my suggestion: would be even nicer to see last move played (highlighted).

thanks.

well, it would be possible, but would complicate things enormously. It would also require to store the pgns of the games in progress until the current position.

Out of curiosity, how do we get the position then? I thought that the position is generated out of pgn by the site.

the bot updates the FEN position every minute

since it displays an FEN based board it should be simpler to add an indicator showing whose turn it is. Like a black or white circle on the side of the board. I'd appreciate that!

it shows whose turn it is. The board is turned always to the side of who is to play

Oh I did not realise that. That's good enough. I agree with milpat it's a pretty cool feature so we can watch without having to login anywhere or starting a client.
