Post subject:  OGS: Skip Board & Conditional Move Experience

I have noticed that the new OGS interface (er... not the new-new one, just the new one) has no "Skip Board" button - a feature that was available on the old OGS interface and one that I used very frequently.

What happened to it? When will it be back?

Also, if your opponent has set conditional moves, when you submit your move, you see the conditional move flash on the screen and are then redirected to the next board in your queue. This would only be mildly annoying if there was a skip-board button so you could get back to the board you had just been "reading". As it stands, it is not just mildly annoying, it is infuriating - particularly when you experience it six times for one well-known san-san invasion.

When conditional moves are triggered and you must move again, the interface MUST stay on the same board! This is correspondence go, NOT simultaneous go. There is a difference.

I don't have auto-advance on, I mostly navigate by clicking the black button in the top right (the one that shows how many games are your to move in) to move to the next game. That also allows you to skip the current board by simply clicking again. And with auto-advance off, you will just be able to stay on the current board and play the conditional sequence.
