    When I am playing a large number of games and leave the site open, when further moves are made by an opponent my position defaults to the last move but one! If I play the same move again it comes up as an illegal move and shows the opponents next move and I can proceed. If I select a different move it is accepted even though my opponent has made a move I havn't seen. This has had disasterous consequences for me and has resulted in even more losses than I usually have. Has anybody come across this before and how do I fix it.

    Bumping from my thread "refresh?":

    31 Jul '08 19:20 :: 0 recommendations
    Strange problem for the last 3-4 days when I access my games. A good 90%+ of the time when I click on a game waiting I get the previous position. I use the green arrow refresh button and the game restores to the correct position, but I am having to do this almost everytime. Also the analyze board button often takes me to the previous position even after I get the submit move board fixed. Win XP and IE if that is any help. Thanks in advance for the help.

    Best,

    end bump

    It is now literally EVERY game I have to hit refresh to get the correct position. I've gotten into the habit of it, but it is a pain and I worry I am going to drag over a bad move from the analyze board and submit it.
