The "insert game" widget has recently lost much of its functionality...

... and it's REALLY annoying!

It is no longer possible to correct errors or mouse-slips when entering a game. Instead, you must cancel out and start again from the very beginning, possibly losing half an hour's work entering and annotating a game.

Lost functionality includes "delete move", "promote variation" and others.

Seems to me that the superior option is FIXING IT.

... even better would be developing the ability to upgrade the site without breaking something.

Someone commented once that the programmers here are all former MS programmers.  Fix something...something breaks  Fix that...something breaks...and so on.  When people start to notice add some bells and whistles to calm them down.

You do realize the site is coded in javascript, and browsers are upgrading all the time... literally just a change in the browser version can break things.
