Option for taking back a move

HellenaVolkova

Should there be an option to take back your move, if your opponent allows it too? Sometimes people have mouse slips and if it's an interesting game, it would be unfortunate if this is ruined by one mouse slip.

No. While mouse slips are unfortunate, can you imagine the whining that would go on?

They let you have takebacks versus the computer if you want.

What whining? And even if someone starts whinging for some reason, you can always disable chat

I think they should add this for unrated games, which tend to be played by people who know each other

The button should be there as in real life, once again people who have no clue about this game saying no to any interesting proposal. Since there is no button, you should agree a draw and re-start the game until the mouse-slip move, it is complicated but without the take back button, and the negative from the all-wise around here what can you do ??? твое предложение хорошее, дорогая

I love what Artem Kozirev has said there, because such a disciplined process, if I ever were to use it, would force me to improve my memory of games and positions.  Not doing that is how I have succeeded in being a really mediocre player for a long period of time
