Move confirmation

  • #1

    Is there a way to have is ask you to confirm your move in live chess? I currently blunder 5-10% of my games due to a misclick. Either I don't notice my piece is selected and click the board or I click between two squares or I accedently click because my trackpad is my mouse. I noticed the iPod app has such a feature.

    Make your touchpad so it does not click, because if its on and you move your touchpad, you might click sometimes.

  • #3

    I can't it is the mouse there is no click button on it.

  • #4

    Yes, same problem here. Mouse problems just costed me a game.

    Only ipad have "confirm" option. Why chess.com do the same for laptop?

  • #5

    An extra "confirm" would be detrimental to anyone under time constraints. Bad idea.

  • #6

    I don't have Ipad

  • #7

    I don't have laptop

    Can you please implement "confirm" button? It has cost me many games. The android app has the confirm button. So i win more games on phone. Can you please implement this?

    No. We do not want an extra "confirm" button.

    For the Android, it is already there!

    Go to :

    Settings: Live Chess: "Show submit button", then change it to "yes".

    Simple.

    Would be great if you have this for a laptop with Windows also! I just lost two games just because of a wrong mousepad click  Cry.

    in the old days you could confirm moves. can we please restore this function, i was just in the middle of a great game, and i brushed the touch pad by mitake and ruined the game ! its its happened many times before

    yeah, cause your opinion is all that matters. it would obviously be optional.

    "Can you please implement "confirm" button? "

    Where does the poster mention optionality in his request?

    I agree with most people here asking for the 'confirm' button: it makes no sense it is in the iphone (or Android) version and not in the online's. By the way would be optional...

  • #16

    I don't understand the rationale for not having a confirm button ... lost or resigned many a game because of mis-click ..!! 

  • #17
    I did that once, but having the confirm button is kind of cheating. on a real game, once you play you're move, you can't confirm it.
  • #18

    not really .. just a safeguard for slipped finger on touchpad which often occurs .. even after a long considered time before moving ... 

  • #19

    The problem is that they have it on the iphone app but browser it seems, so I get used to it on iphone because I like the feature but then play a game on my laptop and forget it's not going to ask me to confirm.

    I also would like a confirm move button. Mouse and touchpad has cost me too many games.
