I think this should be easy to do! (They are on the 11x11 Toroidal Go games already) Please vote for it here:
The chrome extension BiggerGolem adds coordinates to the go boards now.
I installed BiggerGolem and I do not see any coordinates. Moreover, I do not find the settings either, where I could select the Hex board or the Amazons colors.
OK, I found the settings of BiggerGolem. Where are the LittleGolem settings? :)
Personally, I would prefer not having coordinates for playing normal Go. But they are useful for t-Go.
I would guess the reason is aesthetics-related. It's not like regular boards typically have coordinates either. In fact, I also prefer to play with them off (Toroidal excluded).
Usually the time I need coordinates is afterwards when reviewing, or if someone asks a question I'll just quickly open Eidogo in a new tab or something. :)
Thanks mmK, that's exactly it. In my experience, coordinates don't usually help players during the game. Also there are some arbitrary choices made with coordinates. Less is more…
Speaking of coordinates, here's a plug for an interesting coordinate system - particularly recommended for the visually impaired: Audouard coordinates
Site admins provide a free service and have limited resources; I don't think adding coordinates is needed.
Here's a feature request I made, I think it's more deserving…
