Why does the 'Conditional Move' show up sometimes and not others?? It never shows up when I'd like to use it! Frustrating! Thx.
I think there are some restrictions on free accounts. I seem to recall only one conditional string is allowed unless you upgrade to a premium account.
I think if they're more games to play it jumps for the next game. You have to look at your current games, click in the game you wish and make conditional moves. (yup there's a restriction in how many lines you can add for each game)
If it's your move, then Conditional Moves are not available.
But what if I want to set up a conditional move for my opponent in response to my move?
then make your move first and then make conditional moves.
Read it again.
You need to read it again. You must make your move first, and then set up conditionals before your opponent makes their reply. If they happen to reply before you finish, the site uses any conditionals inputted up to that point.
You need to read my post again as well.
I said that I want to set a conditional move such that my opponent's response to my move is programmed by me. In other words I get to set his move. From this you might be able to deduce on your own that the post is humorous in nature.
Don't mean to burst your bubble, I know it makes people feel all smart and good inside to think that they are helping someone.
You always have to set up a conditional move for your opponent in response to your move (unless you're specifying a single move).

He should say what he means - or mean what he says.
Well, Ivan, I got a good chuckle out of it. If it's any consolation. Which it's not.
I thought it was funny too. I'd support that functionality, so long as my opponents didn't also get it.
Similar to a draw offer...you have to make your move first before you can submit an "if" move.
Otherwise you have no way of anticipating the current position when it's your move again.
... except on chess.com where it isn't (any more).
I said what I meant- you're just too mean to say it.
LOL! "Reject your opponent's vacation usage". Now that's playing some serious chess!
Actually I recall some time ago on another site, you could start your opponent's time back up if they made a move in another game while on vacation. I used it once when an opponent was stalling in a lost position.
