    Is there any support for the notion of having the ability to pre-enter your next move based on predicting your opponent's move? It could sure speed some games up if you could make a move, anticipate the countermove, then enter your next move. It would be kind of like eBay bidding where someone else bids, but your bid is still higher, so it autobids for you.

    If you really wanted to make it fun you could also come up with some kind of cute rating system for predictive moves. You could come up with a ranking of the most predictable players and a list of the most clairvoyant players.

    Thoughts?

    I, for one, like that idea.

    Another, perhaps easier to implement, feature that I'd like to see, is to be able to decide the opening when I create a new game where I'm white. As soon as an opponent accepts the game, my opening move is made and the game is on.

    This is an absolutely cracking idea - i think most ppl would love to see this added.

    I like the Idea, has been suggested on many occasions
