    I've been playing for a few days, but I've suddenly got problems making moves. When I try to drag and drop a piece, my mouse cursor just chanages to a 'cancel' icon and I can't drop the piece - so I can't make any moves!

    This is a problem in the main move screen as well as the game history screen.

    This might be a noob issue :-( - I've looked around the FAQ, can't see anything to suggest what might be the problem. I've tried opening up the IE6 javascript security settings but it makes no difference.

    Thanks for any help...

    Drag and drop???? All you need to do is click on piece you want to move and then click on square you want to move it to. Its never been drag and drop

    You're right... sheesh, total brain failure.

    Did you ever see that Far Side cartoon where the guy can't get into the school for the gifted because he's pushing on a door that says "pull"?

    That was me.

    This happens quite frequently.

    I had a long conversation with an established player recently about this very issue! It was the most surreal feedback I have dealt with - the complete belief that this site had supported drag and drop for all of their previous games, despite me trying to convince them otherwise.
