    If I send a message to my opponent when I resign the game, will he/she receive it if I just click on the "resign" button; or do I have to make a move and submit it in order for the message to be sent. I ask because the instructions say that your opponent will receive the message when he/she makes the next move. But if I resign there is no next move for my opponent. Does this question make any sense to anyone? Or am I living up to my username.

    Your opponent will receive the message. He/she/it can see the message either when they view the game or under "recent messages" in "My Home".

    Or if you want to, you can send a message to them by clicking on their profile link and clicking "send message". That message can be viewed without loading the board.

    Welcome to the site, by the way.

    Thanks, Igloo, for clearing that up. Long ago in a galaxy far away, I used to play correspondence chess by "snail mail". This is much better.

    If someone sends a message on the last move, whether a resign or a checkmate, the site helpfully lets the recipient know that there was a message and to check the game screen or their home page.
