    I just captured a R on the 8th rank with a pawn and it was promoted to a Q without asking if that's what I wanted (it was, but the lack of a choice was disconcerting).

    Has anyone else seen this?

    The two step procedure has been relieved by a filed you have to click before hitting "submit".
    The problem with the old procedure was, that the clock stopped afetr submission and only started after the piece selection....

    Thanks. I'll put a sharper eye on it the next time I promote a piece.
