Lichess Feedback - Stop accusing me of running out the clock#1

I keep getting the "Warning: letting time run out instead of resigning will result in a temporary ban." The thing is, though, that in Blitz this keeps happening when I had only, say, 12 seconds on my …

General Chess Discussion - Multi account policy#19

And this is exactly the problem. Is a "drunk account" a valid use case? A lot of people think it is, and Geniree here thinks it isn't. I'm more inclined to think it is, but what if one day a mod decid…

General Chess Discussion - Multi account policy#5
