  3. The opponent quit, but I see him/her playing on another board...

Hi all!

So, it happens quite many times in a day, against low and high rated players: they voluntary disconnect without resigning. The problem is that I have to wait sometimes more than two minutes, until their clock gets to zero. For some, like the last one, they reconnect and start another game, but the clock still rolling, and I have to wait while this opponent is playing his/her game.

My question is: is there a way to force a "resign" from the opponent when this happen?

No there is no way. It is unfortunate that lichess allows to start a 2nd game when there still is a game in progress.

Funny that they allow you to start another game but not switch from desktop to mobile without being served a loss
