    I only recently started using this site, but I've been playing correspondence chess for a while. I find that when I have multiple games going, I can't remember my plans in each one. I've already made 2 game losing blunders because I forgot my idea from the day before.
    For example:

    I played Nxe5 before I went to bed and my opponent responded how I predicted while I was asleep. Then I woke up in the middle of the night and decided to play another move, but I totally forgot that my intention was to play Qh5+ to pick up the bishop. I instead thought my knight was still undeveloped and I could just kick the bishop. Then when the next move came I realized what I had done.

    Is there a way to make a premove or something to avoid this in the future?

    Ouch, that's annoying.

    Not a feature I use myself, but there is a Conditional move tab to the right of the game board that should prevent that happening in the future. (Would also advise against making moves in the middle of the night). 😀

    Welcome to the site.

    "Is there a way to make a premove or something to avoid this in the future?"

    Yes. Use the "Notes" feature. You will find a clickable button between "Clock" & "Messages", just below the "Wait this game … Resign" row of buttons. Make notes to yourself, what moves you intend; your opponents cannot see them. Don't forget to number the moves, so you don't lose your place in the game.

    Behave you scallywag.

    Let's all just agree I have the best fashion sense in the forum. (And not just on a Tuesday).
