Crashes lead to abortions and punishment

I don’t know what is going on, but last time the app crashes often while starting a game. I guess this is a capacity problem of the server. Can happen. But..... The system gives you time punishments because you abort that often. Very unfair, the site crashes and users get punishments for it. In fact you can’t play chess anymore on Lichess.

Bug problems

I really like this app, but the recent update has been giving me a lot of trouble. For example I keep getting logged out by the app and switching between games doesn’t go smoothly anymore.

Tsjah jammer nou ....... Pfft ,

Changed all the buttons

I don’t like it that Lichess changed all the buttons, like the analyse played game and the arrows and such. The system was perfect how it was and didn’t need to change and this makes me to not understand it anymore and not like it anymore and not learn and play lichess anymore.
