    Can anyone tell me if the offer of a draw made on a move during a game is recorded anywhere, e.g within Game Log? Currently got a couple of games where I can't remember whether I've offered a draw or not....but want to. Offering a draw more than once in a game seems bad form to me where your opponent has previously decided to play on!

    Don't think so.
    I can't remember a game where I offered a draw to check

    I've had the same happen to me, and I wasn't able to find it in the Game Log or anywhere else. I think if it isn't accepted it just disappears. Personally I don't mind if someone offers me a draw more than once, so long as they don't keep doing it on every move thereafter.

    Thanks both. As a suggestion, could it be incorporated into the Game Log history do you think? Maybe as an icon or something. Just a thought.

    You could try posting it in the site ideas forum.

    There's really nothing wrong with offering a draw more than once (but, as Kewpie says, doing it every move would be annoying).

    Until something automatic comes along, you can use the "notes" option to keep track of who offered a draw and on what move.
    I don't know if the game notes are kept with a game after it is completed, but once the game is done it probably no longer matters anyway.

    I know the game messages are saved in the game log even after the game is over so a solution for the future would be to simply message your opponent with the word draw? at the same time as it was offered.

    I checked it on one of my archived games and you can still see and edit the notes you made after the game is completed, so that is definitely one solution for the OP.

    It just isn't something that is done automatically at the time when a draw offer has been made by either player so you would need to make the note entry when it happens.
