    It's a bit awkward, but the workaround is to PM the winner after you resign.

    I second your motion to code for a terminal farewell message.

    It would seem that you can only send a message via the "chat" funtion whilst a game is still in progress.
    I have sent several messages over time when resigning games such as "well played" etc which, I have just discovered ,have not been conveyed to my victrious opponent.
    I would like to see this rectified please
    Is this right that messages sent when resigning don’t get delivered ?
    I can’t say all the messages I’ve sent when resigning have gone through, but I think, from the response I’ve had in a rematch game, that at least some have.
    Russ, could you clarify one way or the other please.

    Can I just second this, I often send a 'well played' on resigning (which happens with depressing regularity) on the assumption that it arrives, being a polite sort of chap and all. One does not wish to appear rude or mean - spirited!

    A message is recorded, but not brought to the opponent's attention (beyond the "game finished" notification) unless they check the "My Home" page where "Completed Games In Last 7 Days" shows any last messages.

    If your opponent views the game directly, then the message is visible, of course.

    The Game Chat and Private Message systems are distinct, but a notification could certainly be raised during a resignation alerting the opponent to the existence of a final message.

    Would anyone like to resign against me to test this feature?

    Thanks for your attention Russ.
    I think we realise this is not high priority but look forward to the feature in a future version

    If you look down your list of won/lost games you can see if someone left you a note and also you can reply to it. I just did it today!

    The game conclusion notification (if not disabled) will now alert the recipient to a waiting message on resignation. A copy of any final chat message is included in the notification too.
