    I think it would be a nice feature to be able to submit moves in advance.

    You would submit a future move so that if your opponent's next move is "a", then automatically make my next move "b". I don't think this would be useful for most situations, but if you think there's a good chance that you know your opponent's next move (or better if your opponent has a forced move) then I think it would be useful to help quicken the game.

    I'm holding my breath... starting....

























    NOW!

    This will be a good feature... but might raise some questions when noobs see a move made INSTANTLY.

    "Arg, I am playing teh chessbot!"

    P-

    How about a note:

    "This user has anticipated your move, and the RHP Chess Bot has made the anticipated move."

    That would be like a game message from the other player, but automated.

    Perhaps these could be configurable as well, so we could have automated gloating sent along with the moves.

    Is it possible to see the auto move in advance...?
    Just kidding... or?
