    Wouldn't it be nice to be able to analyze that move if the en passant rule was available on the analyze board feature. Like a big red flag would pop up or something to remind you. But then again that might be almost as bad as discussing a game that is still ongoing.

    I think we need other information it should tell you which of your pieces are hanging or en prise.

    And why not
    "*** Reminder *** Mate in two ***"
    ?

    If you know the en passant rule, of course no reminder is neccesary.

    Is this not a player asking for (and getting) advice on a game in progress?

    Have I missed an announcement that this is acceptable now?

    I still don't understand why that isn't mate.
    Could somebody explain better pleaze..?
    What is the en passant rule?

    EDIT:
    Don't worry! Found it!

    EDIT:
    But isn't the en passant rule only for pawns?
