    If I offer a draw and my opponent chooses to play on, is there anywhere the draw offer is recorded?

    Not that I know of. It would be a nice feature to add to the game log. Take it to Site Ideas.

    The draw offer isn't all that easy to see. I guy had to tell me he offered me a draw, I was still playing useless moves playing for a draw.

    I've taken to messaging the opponent "draw offered" or some such. Firstly because on the android browser the "your opponent has offered draw" alert requires scrolling and thus easy to miss, and secondly so I can tell when I did so should I review the game.

    I posted under site ideas. I forget at times if I offered a draw and don't want to spam the opponent multiple times. I'll offer once.

    I'm sure there are websites that do NOT detect the position has happened three or more times. It has happened to me, my opponent playing on oblivious to the draw requirement..
