Re: How do we end a Draw game/which a player refuses to ...

A theoretically drawn game is a game where checkmate is impossible, such as KN vs K, KN vs KN is not theoretically drawn. The "50 moves without a pawn push or capture" and the "three move repetition" are the ways to end a game that are drawn in practice.

Re: How do we end a Draw game/which a player refuses to ...

Players are generally entitled to play out drawn or even obviously lost games. Once you get to a three move repetition, 50 moves without a capture or pawn push, or a theoretical drawn position, a draw can be declared. A "block" feature really only works on blitz sites where you play one game at a ti...

Re: Promoting a pawn.

You're the only one who's reported it, possible others have had it and not said anything. At this point, you might want to just type "b2b1=Q" into the move box to make your move. I'll keep looking into it, but I don't think it's going to get solved anytime soon since I can't cause the problem myself.

When viewing the game, can you press "ctrl+shift i". This will bring up the "developer tools", click on the tab that's labeled "console", then try to make your move. Let me know if anything appears in the console log.

Unfortunately "Google" isn't a browser. I'm not able to reproduce that issue in any browser I try. You can still make the move my typing c7c8=Q into the move box. If you can try to figure out which browser and version you're using, it might help me fix it for future instances.

They could run a simulation as if they reset every rating to 1500 at some certain point in the past, then use all of the past games to update the ratings. Taki...
