I recently played in a tournament where evreyone was requested to play just one 'custom' move They wanted 1.e4 d5 2. e5 An excellent tournament for those studying the Scandinavian. Unfortunately, only about half the games managed it! People just forgot. Tak a look...http://www.chess.com/tournament/scandanivian-advance-white-must-play-2e5I can't for the life of me see any reason not to allow custom start position.All the objections which I've seen are paltry.Steve
@Steve922477 Never trust anybody to do anything that you have to depend on them to do, and you'll rarely be disappointed.
I expected that would be the case Steve, that's why I haven't mentioned it before. It woule be hard to remember, especially if you have many games going at the same time. So until they produce a protocol that would pop up after you move and say: "Now remember, you must play Qxd5 on your next move", it will never work. Come to think of it, that might be easier that what they are trying to do with all the translation woes they currently have.

All programmers on Chess.com do multiple jobs in different areas of the sites code, its not a case of one programmer = one job. They have to shuffle, organise and prioritise their own work schedules on the many different projects they are working on. Sadly asking for something one day doesn't mean its there for you the following. These things take time to create, test, fix if an issue is found, retest before its added to the site. It is time consuming and I'm sorry, but we can't add this as soon as you want it on here. We have said we're bringing it back and we will, as soon as the new way of having it shown is completed and ready to be added:)
