    Could we have a note stating that the player didn't accept a draw offer - when it next becomes your move? I find I have forgotten if I offered the draw, it must be impossible for players with over 20-30 and more games going.

    When you offer or ask for a draw, mess him and ask him for a draw.
    Then you have a comment in the in board message log also.

    But I don't check the message logs for every game, every move. I go to the game, look at the board and move. If there was a little sign saying 'draw offer not accepted' or something, it would remind you. I only have 6 games max and I forget if I offered a draw or not, occasionally.
    I know it says "opponents decision" or summat but as soon as they move that disappears.
    I reckon it would be a slight improvement.

    Make a note in the Notebook, saying 'Draw offered' or something. Works nicely for me.

    I use Notebook for remarks like - "Watch out for the mate at f7". Reminds me quite well of dangers.

    True, I could do a number of things to remind me - the point is; I think it would be very nice if there was a sign saying the draw was refused.
