    Russ,

    Is there any way that you could add a resign game feature for when it is not your move?

    Thanks,

    Well,if you quit why would you care to take the timeout?

    No rec for me, though a few months ago I believe I requested this exact feature.

    CC isn't blitz ... it doesn't hurt you to wait for your opponent to move.

    I think this has been requested a few times, and I think its a good idea.
    There's nothing worse than playing some brain-curdling blunder of a move and having to wait a couple of days for your opponent to see it, fall on the floor laughing, and deliver the mate in one you missed.
    Much better to play the move, fall on the floor crying, desparately click on the stop button, establish that the move has been played, and just resign. Much less pain all round.

    It's funny that there are others out there that see the bad move they have made and make a dive for the stop button on the browser. It's even harder now I have broadband - my reflexes are just not quick enough. So I guess I am blaming any bad moves I have made lately on the addition of broadband🙂

    I meant to add - good idea on being able to resign when it is not your move.

    Don't forget the back button! That way it LOOKS like you didn't just make that move. 😉
