    This is just a minor inconvenience, but it's still a glitch.

    When offering a draw by the rules, where I make the move and click offer draw, I still get a message that reminds me that I have to be sure to make a move when offering a draw. Then I have to click it again, and then submit.

    If I've already made the move, why not just eliminate the extra warning? That should be pretty easy to do, right?

    I think the reason of the warning is that some people might think that they can offer a draw any time, without having to make a move.
    Perhaps the system cannot know if a move has been made until you click submit button.
    But otherwise I agree with you. The warning shouldn't be neccesary.

    I agree. I'm only suggesting a change when the move has already been made. It's just a little irritating to get the warning when I've already made a move on the board.

    Yes. This is annoying. Get rid of it!

    A box only should pop up if you submit the draw offer without moving.
