Takeback Request Option

    What a bunch of stuck ups here. I have had many games where my opponent simply went to trade pieces and their piece landed right next to the piece they intended to capture. If it was obvious I offered a draw.

    Saying that someone is "childish" for wanting a take back in such situations shows a real lack of chacter.

    And, if two people agree to a take back rule (that you can disable) and you have to have problem with that, you are not just be childish yourself, you're acting like a spoiled brat!

    No i don't think so. a mouse slip maybe but you can never tell. I wouldn't request one, but if i was completly winning i might grant one

    I have played on other sites where takebacks are allowed. This option is often abused by trolls and no-lifers, especially in time-scrambles.  One of the best features of chess.com to me was no takebacks. I've lost many games because of mouse slips here. Thats a price i'm very happy to keep paying.

    yes i agree

    No takeback, I prefer tournament rules. If it ain't in the book it ain't chess, its just a mess.

    So, your your preferences are more important than others?

    In my 15 minute games often I play with lack of sleep.  This blunder I have made 3 times now

    These were in my 15 minute games on another site. So, I lose, so what? I can make back the rating points later.

    I do not ask for or give "take backs"  This is much easier than having to decide when to give them or when not to give them.

    In the deathmatch Saturday Polgar thought Short mouse slipped and offered him a draw for it.   He declined, and said it was not a mouse slip and he did not know why he played the move.

    As much as I can empathize with the reasons for takeback, it would have to come with the rule "No forum topics about someone would not let me takeback my move".  Really there should not be takeback.
