Same site, but two rules.
The argument most have is that on playing we should view our move, and view it again before pressing submit.
So why shouldn't that be the same on posting here. Read what you've written, read it again before pressing submit.
Might have the added benefit of the prevention of some of the pointless, ma y net on one part of the site, why not make it across the board - simple and fair solution.
People wait days on end for a move, and you use that time to think. Forum posting is done for relaxation and trading information. Very few times are there people hanging on your every post, compared to a chess move where it takes 2 to play a game.
Just last night I missed a mate in one, stretching the game out one extra move. I should have thought about 22 seconds longer. There is no need for me or anyone to bother a player asking for an undo just because we failed to use our time wise.
This would also be an invite for players to rush their moves, and troll their opponent for an undo. "Oops, bad move! Can I undo it PLX!?"
Posting and playing chess here are two totally different things, both on the same site. Having an undo button is just an extra useless feature that promotes people not thinking before they make their move.
RHP is held to a higher standard. Go to a USFC chess tournament and ask any of them if they'd let you take a move back. The answer would be NO because this is chess, not Tiddly Winks.
