    Just a very little thing: some of the buttons on the site here are "dynamic": they change the String on it, when they are clicked (and they could change the colour as well) and they are definitely just one time clickable. why not make the MOVE button such a buttom?

    Eg the "Post" button here is such a botton: It changes to "please wait..."
    answer and try it out!

    Can this be made presenting a text counting down? Like from 5 to 0 seconds, so you know how much time you have left of canceling the move? I bet many others feel the need for a quick undo functionality every now and then when they hit the move button and then, only then, realise the blunder they made.

    That's not a bad idea

    people don't want to wait 5 seconds for the move to register. I'm an advocate of the 5 minute takeback option if your opponent hasn't moved in that time period.

    I click on move, hold the mouse button, and quickly scan the board 1 last time. Its amazing what you suddenly see when the button is clicked (but not released).

    No way!

    There could only ever be a take back button IF your opponent hadn't seen your move. That means if your opponent hasn't been into the game screen and hasn't clicked on the "info" tab on the My Games page.

    I'd be hella p'd off if I had just spent 4 minutes 59 seconds trying to figure out a move, and then realise that my opponent had taken back the move.

    Even with the conditions I mentioned above, I'm not sure if I'm for the take back function, although I guess it would be a nice optional feature for two players who wished to agree to have the capability at the start of a game on a game by game basis.

    I never look at the game when its not my move so i wouldn't use this, I guess its an option although you could always just spend another 5 mins thinking about your move. It could be annoying if after your move you saw a better one but you just missed the 5 min timer as well.
