    I would like to see a "clear board" option that also automatically clears the the 4 castling boxes.

    I use "set piece" for practice games so both players can easily see it's an unrated game in the MyGames list. I'd support the "Clear Board" option, it would save me having to consult my opponent about the first move if I'm to play black. But having the 4 castling ticks removed doesn't suit me - and I'd be surprised if it suited most users.

    Let's canvass votes on that point specifically as well as the "Clear Board" option.

    When there are no pieces on the board, there are no castling options?

    I understand the function "clear board" as to mean: "remove all pieces from the board". What did you understand it as?

    [remove reason=brainfart]Also, it means that we need a function to add pieces to the board, as this is currently not possible. (I think?)[/remove]

    I guess it's 6 and 2 3s.

    I sometimes play random chess. Would I like to untick the boxes if a random position allows castling or not? Perhaps a positive is better than a negative.

    What does [remove reason=brainfart] mean? Are you being rude? Do I need to comment on the cut of your jib?

    Now why didn't I think meant "clear board" meant "clear all the pieces off the board"? Why did I think it meant "reset to the normal starting position"?

    I don't know, a bit of mental fog perhaps ...

    I didn't easily find a way to use strike-through formatting, so I just added a tag trying to convey that I made a brain-fart: It is possible to populate an empty board by right-clicking on a square.
