This is what happens when you refuse to accept takeback

Takeback topics should be treated like @Sarg0n said.

Takeback requests are lack of chess culture. Takeback is all right in unrated teaching games to demonstrate something. There are rules. Touched, move. Put on a square and having your hands off, moved.

That doesn't really look like an obvious mouse slip to me rather than a blunder. I don't have takebacks enabled at all, but if I see something like the situation below, I would usually offer a draw because there's basically no situation that this isn't a mouse slip.

@Morozov I understand the exact nature of a take back, the clue is in the name - you take back a mistake you made - it is not the online version of "I adjust" or anything like it. If myself and a fellow player are having a great game and he makes a mistake its hard luck - If it costs him the game, you analyse it, try to ensure it doesn't happen again and move on to another great game - the way you are supposed to. Again you are trying to draw parity with "Chess rating" to what I am saying - Only because you feel a superior right to bully people of a lower rating - I won't be bullied - The whole idea of allowing children to correct their mistakes in game over casual chess when they are learning is to maintain and interest and motivation in the game - Again nothing to do with rating or chess skill - Your further attempts to try to beat on me because of my lower rating in an effort for you to prove a point will fail because fundamentally it is not a conversation about how good you are.

Again you should get off your high horse.

@userfriendly2 You said you understand the difference between a mistake and j'adoube. So doing an imprecise movement with your mouse, and having the piece not on the intended square is a chess mistake to you?
If you drop a piece while playing OTB do you also just let it stay on the square it landed on?

I'm not sure I see the correlation here - J'adoube or "adjust" is a phrase which must be stated BEFORE you touch a piece in chess - you cannot touch a piece and then say J'adoube in order to retract a mistaken move - this is regarded as CHEATING. By clicking on a piece in online chess you are signalling your deliberate intent to move that piece - thus any form of J'adoube is null and void at the point as you have essentially touched the piece and now it must be moved - that's not an opinion - that's just a fact! Once have clicked the piece in the first place J'adoube, by definition, can no longer apply

- Now that I have cleared that up for you, you can stop making drawing false comparisons to the adjust/J'adoube rule.

The offline "comparison" (?) goes that way:

If you touch or move a piece inadvertently you don't have to move it.

A mouse slip is more like when you're playing blitz with cheap unweighted pieces and you slide your pawn to h3, but it keeps sliding over to h4 even after you let go. The difference is that OTB only the pawn is stable enough to slide like that - any other piece will likely tumble and roll off the board, potentially taking other pieces along with it, and you'll have to reconstruct the position before you can press the clock.


A mouse slip is touching a piece, sometimes the wrong one, and/or moving it, sometimes to a wrong square. That's NOT covered with the J'adoube rule. That's setting yourself in a hurry, which provokes mistakes. Denying this is denying responsibility for your actions.

Edit: If you're not capable to accept this in a game without real consequences, how do you behave in cases your actions have consequences? It should be easy to accept this in chess and says a lot about a person refusing this. Pardon, if this hurts. Then look at my profile.
