    A few times I have found myself wondering if my opponent could still castle. I've had to crank up the game analyst option (which I find wonderfilled) to figure out this weightly issue. Can there be a notation that pops up on screen to tell me if castling has taken place? When involved in multiple games, this would be of help.

    I suspect (s)he would find that no FUN.

    While it seems like a simple option, I wouldn't want to see it before many other ideas. Scanning through the history is a small chore.

    In a 'real' game of chess, you wouldn't have this information, without going back through the game score.

    Therefore, on the basis that we should keep things as close as possible to the rules of the game called chess, this is a bad idea.

    You also don't play 40+ games at a time in a 'real' game of chess. Therefore it is quite a lot easier to keep track of.

    You also don't have an "analize board" with you in real chess.

    You do in correspondence chess, and you can also have as many analysis boards as you need.
