When playing on IGS, my Japanese opponents often greet me with "Let's begin and enjoy a great game." It seems that whatever client they are using has an automatic greeting button. I rather like the idea as it's implemented in Tygem (with a number of automatically translatable sentences to choose from) and I was wondering what IGS client the Japanese are using that has this function.

I mainly use Tetsuki and that client does the automatic greeting at the beginning of the game.

I admit I've assigned a macro to my greeting before, but the generic automatic one seems so impersonal to me.

Thank you for sharing that link. I'm not even sure what to say.

You could say: "Let's begin and enjoy a great game."

I just want to say I wish kgs would have automatic greetings, that would be great for blitz games, but only if you could personalize them

You can assign shortcuts/hotkeys/macros for your greetings--not through KGS, but through your operating system or some software (I like AutoHotkey). Your standard greeting would automatically be entered when you hit, for example, ctrl+1 or something. You could also copy your greeting and paste it, which is basically a temporary version of assigning a shortcut/hotkey.

If it's automatic, is it still a greeting ?

If my oppponent doesn't want to type a simple "hello", I'd rather get no greeting at all than some automatic message.

I have no problem with people who only come online to play Go and who don't want to interact, but come on ... a macro to say "hi" ? I find this way more offensive than someone who doesn't say a word.

This whole "Let's begin and enjoy a great game" thing always makes me want to answer something rude. I think it's by far the most annoying thing on IGS.

Are you aware that your opponent may well not speak a word of English? He uses the automatic translation in order to be polite. No reason to want to respond rudely.

That's why I don't respond at all.
But if they think it is polite to set an automatic greeting macro, then it's a big FAIL. I find it highly irritating, if not offensive.

I'm really tempted to feel offended.
