When I first went onto a go server with IGS,
I was intimidated by the information that was displayed to me.
On this page I present the information I've collected.
Please mail your comments to me.

An exclamation mark is shown on the players that are looking.

Alternatively you can type who o in the input window.

but only one number will be displayed.)

making the column wider will solve this problem)
