    Now this is a serious suggestion: Since it often happens that you see what a horrible mistake you just made after clicking move, you could perhaps have a button for maybe 5 minutes after you move which you can click. This doesn't take back the move automatically, but rather leaves the descision to your opponent, kinda like the draw offer. Your opponent could then decide whether he wants to allow you to take back the move or not.
    What do you think about it?

    I have a better idea just super glue your hands to your desk until you are sure you are ready to move and then set your own alarm clock and wait five minuets. Because I can promise you after you move and beg for mercy. It's too late it's my move cause this is war. And that would be just one more issue to debate about. Should I have been a jerk and take my move or let you be a jerk and take two moves because you might have a blond moment.

    No takebacks! Takeback requests are annoying even in blitz games. People want to blame their mouse for some hideous blunder, then they want to blame me for their loss because I didn't accept the takeback! In correspondence, there is no excuse for not doing at least a 1-ply scan before you move.

    One only needs a few seconds to take back a move, since you always notice the mistake while pressing the Move-button. The thing I request is to delay the processing of the move with a few seconds just to cancel the move and prevent a move notification send to your opponent (if applicable). Just a few seconds is all I ask.

    A little self-discipline would do the same. Simply stop for a moment when your mouse rests on the move button, imagine what would happen if you'd click, and congratulate yourself for not having clicked yet if you find out that this would have been a bad idea.

    The simple solution is to not move before you're absolutely certain you're making the best move you can.

    How about wearing boxing gloves while taking your move. stops you from touching the buttons, and if you do manage to make a mistake you can punch yourself sensless without hurting your hand

    I don't think it does. So I tested it. It doesn't work that way, even if you move as fast you can to the stop button.

    I have had one occasion where I blundered noticed it and then the page send failed. It was a complete fluke I guess.

    i don't know why it wouldn't work for you. but it has worked for me a few times, other times it hasn't. i remember the time I tried to hit the back button, it takes you back to the page before you moved, but you cant change your move
