    I'm not sure about everyone else, but sometimes when I make a move then click move, I then realize that I made the wrong move. So, I was thinking we should have like a redo button, and you can redo only your last move, and only if your opponent hasn't moved yet. I would like to see what everyone else thinks, please recommend if you like the idea.

    yes i think a redo button would be useful but only within certain conditions.

    Yes, me too. Maybe we should try to work ouy the conditions, like only one redo a week or the opponent has to agree with it, what does everyone else think?

    I like the idea, but I like teaching myself restraint better.
    Make the move you thought about, requires you to think
    about the move you make. I have more than once right
    after I hit the move button seen my error, either a dropped
    piece, a discovered check, a mate in one. It happens, but
    only when I'm not giving my games the time I should when
    thinking about my next move.

    No no no no no no no no no no no no no.

    If you're not sure of the move, don't make it. If you make it anyway, live with it.

    FWIW half the time I make these blunders (I know I shouldn't, but I do) my opponent doesn't see it either and I have a tempo to recover.
