    Hi all,

    In two games there is the sudden appearence of a 'draw'.
    I did NOT propose it in either game NB I did not push the button!
    Did anyone experience the same? It happened after the entrance of the new buttons.
    Please help!

    ciao, Joop

    Maybe your opponent has offered you a draw.However if you tell me the game number,I can give it a watch.

    neither! Although I like your answer I'd rather like an answer of Russ about this topic. It's about 401360 which has run draw, I couldn't change that and 326827 which is still waiting for a reply and where my opponent has a clear lost position, so why should I offer a draw or accept one.

    Probably somebody logged in with your account and offered the draws for you?!
    Easy password?

    hardly can imagine, but it would spoil the fun here.

    Another question -

    Is it a stalemate situation, or have neither of you captured a piece in 50 moves (which I believe is the official tally for automatic stalemate?)

    That's the only thing I can come up with....links to the games might help....

    well we were just starting up the game, so a 50 move ruling doesn't apply & I asked her about proposing a draw what she did not.
    We'll see what happens in other games

    I'll look in to this.

    Someone experienced a similar problem with resignations after the last update. It maybe a related issue.
