As a side-effect of automatically setting focus to the textbox when clicking anywhere on the page of a game, it's rather difficult to select text. It can be done on a computer if the mouse remains held down while copying using Ctrl+C, but this is not ideal for most users, esp. phone users, and it's not uncommon to want to copy something down while e.g. reviewing a game.

This complaint was made and I identified the issue. It would be nice if this behavior could change. I can also imagine that tapping to scroll might be a problem (I don't have a phone to verify this, though). Perhaps removing auto-focus on click is the best bet. It's okay to have to scroll and click the textbox to type, I think.

If not, then it should be possible to set focus to the textbox when first coming to the page. Please let me know your thoughts.
