Only use this button in case of extreme emergency. Like, if someone threatens to slaughter a kitten, or if you suspect they may be using a mouse to drag pieces on the board.

Anybody using the button just for fun is really, really naughty.

It does restart the server, that is why the site has been so unresponsive lately, because people keep pushing that button. It's a good thing the button is hidden so well, otherwise it would be much worse I think. Just please don't click it anymore!

It doesn't do anything, the button is a joke.
