Draw Offer Cleared with Reset

Post by brutalsacop » Thu Jul 04, 2013 6:22 am

I can't really suggest improvemements to this nice chess site, but if anyone insisted, I would have suggested that the Reset button should also clear the "Draw" field, if selected.

In this R + P v. R ending for example, http://net-chess.com/game/g1105151604 the game was a dead draw, and 'Draw" was clicked. Then I then saw that if Black captures the pawn on move 77, he loses the rook, and I decided to take a chance. I therefore clicked Reset, reinput the move, and clicked "Move", unintentionally also offering my opponent a draw at the same time.

I would have preferred it if 'Reset' cleared the 'Draw' field as well, but I realise that other players may prefer it the way that it is working now.

Thanks

You're sure he loses the rook?

I too would like to see this changed, I've offered a few unintentional draws when I suddenly realized I had a win!

However, in the linked game, 77...Rxb4 and the only try is 78.Rc7+ when 78...Rc4 saves the day.

I'll put this in the updated board I'm "working" on, at least I hope to get some time to work on it soon.

There should not be a space between the two words.
