As a relatively new member, one tends to make suggestions for any change with sensitivity. I don't know if this has been discussed before.
Currently, when an opponent resigns, I only notice it when I go to My Games and see that in some game or other the sign says You won. Same, of course, if I resign.
However, when I play about 40 games, I hardly ever go to My Games: I just click on the X games waiting and play. Then I wonder why so-and-so hasn't moved, because his game doesn't come around!
Also, when I resign, I like to send a message: I do it because of such-and-such. Congratulations! But the winner never gets to see this message.
What I am suggesting is that when a player resigns, that the game still appears one last time on the opponent's list of active games, with, perhaps, the message: Your opponent has resigned!
That would give one the opportunity to bury the dead with dignity!
