    Hiya,
    I cannot easily submit conditional moves with castling.
    e.g.


    I am white.
    Quick mode: Moving the black king moves only the king. I can then move the white king, which castles correctly. Submitting the conditional move creates an undesired position where the black king has moved twice before white moves (and the black rook has not moved).
    Deep mode: Move the black king and rook. Click to move the white king (which moves without the rook moving). Click submit. The move is entered correctly, but the way there was complicated, and the white castling was unusual.

    Funnily enough I can't remember a time when castling was not an issue with regard to conditionals...forgive me if I'm wrong, but it's plainly an ongoing site glitch. I've only used deep mode whenever castling for as long as I can remember, 'expecting' to move the rook and king independently. However, I hadn't noticed the difference with white when castling in quick mode...as I say, I never castle in quick mode...

    Actually, I think only Kewpie has mentioned it before.
    Based on appearance and size (7-8kg, and no fat) we wondered if he had Maine Coon roots, or was more Norwegian. He is actually an English Farm Cat, aka Heinz.
