    I just promoted a pawn since you updated the look and interface here. It automatically gave me a queen instead of giving me the option. A true chess master knows that a queen isn't the only desirable piece for promotion. Sometimes a knight is the proper piece to win the game.

    You should bring back the ability to choose your promoted piece. Just like it was before.

    This is only one of the few things about the new update that I don't agree with. But the rest are "cosmetic".

    Queen is the default option, but you still have the choice. You need to make your choice from the dropdown menu before submitting the move, which is different from the sequence we had before.

    the previous sequence included the bug, that if you didn't chose your p0iece you couldn't be timd out.

    I remember that, it was always bobbing up in the Help forum because the opponent wouldn't be able to move even though their timeclock was depleting. That's one problem the update has fixed, I like the new way much better.
