Re: user name

Is there anyway to change the user name without adding a new email address? I would think there would be. I am at the point for some postings, that I don't dare use my current user's name because it is clear who I am. I made the mistake of using my last name in my user name. :twisted:

Again, thanks for the advice but I can get my money back on HW Hearts and I am going to request it. It simply isn't worth the pain of trying to find nice players. I have had a few in Spades that I don't ever want to play with again. But in Hearts, it seems like it is just about everyone. I am very ...

Suggestions

Thanks for the suggestions. But some of them take out the main reason I like Hardwood. None of my friends or family like playing cards and I want the interaction with live people. I have unloaded Hearts and will continue with Spades. Once in a while there is abuse that needs to be reported in Spade...

Reporting & Guides

I have never seen a guide in Hardwood Hearts. I know they can't be on 24-7. I have reported one person, and could have reported a lot more. I am on line to play and have fun not to be reporting constantly and I feel like I need to. The abuse has been horrible. I don't go online to be abused and tha...

Money Back?

If there was a way that I could get my money back, I would request it. I am so sick and tired of trying to have a fun and relaxing game, only to constantly be called names. For some reason, Hardwood Hearts seems to be considerably worst than Hardwood Spades. I play online for the interaction with r...

Player's abuse

It seems that the abuse is everywhere. I am new to Hardwood Hearts but not the game of Hearts. I don't claim to be the best player and for me that is not the point of the game. The abuse I have been getting is unreal. I am called name after name because of what I pass. Is there something in Hearts ...

Character No Longer Valid?

One of my characters is a blue bunny. When I log in with it, I am told it is no longer valid. Yet, once I am logged in, I can change it back to the blue bunny with blue clouds. I don't understand what is going on with this character. :o

Thank you,

Passing Spades

OK, I see and appreciate everyone's comments. But, to get mad because I don't pass what I don't have seems like they have lost their minds. I have gotten accused of costing us the game because I didn't pass spades. What spades? Maybe I have lost my mind. :shock:

Passing Spades

I seem to be getting a number of partners that get mad at me for not passing spades when I am nil. I feel there are exceptions to this that some people may disagree with such as having a 3 card suit and two of the following: Queen, King, Ace. I pass the highest card to get some assurance the lower ...

Abuse of Process

One thing that bothers me about the process is that I choose a room that is 1500 or above and I get kicked because I am in the 1500's and not the 1600's. Getting kicked out by a host who has never played with me seems wrong. I am sure it is sometimes by the rating because I have gone into the same ...

Blue Star

I was on line today and tried to ask what the blue star was. For the life of me, the people with the blue star totally ignored my question and said they answered my question when they didn't. I am still slightly confused as to what the blue star signifies and how one gets it. Call it the major blon...

Using Head

Yes, I agree that using one's head is not against the rules. Again, this works with the other person. If I pass a high spade to my partner, I do not expect them to throw their lowest spade which will result in my nil getting set. Again, there is nothing I can do about my rating being lowered at thi...

Hmmm

I still disagree. Too many players just think about me me me. One does depend on their partners and the cards. If these aren't into play, then one won't get and maintain the high ratings. I also believe in luck and streaks. Aside from these last two points, people do need to remember that as long a...

What determine Ratings

One thing that we should always keep in mind is that in partners our ratings are not just determined by own play. I think a lot of people forget this. No matter how good my cards are, if my partner plays a low spade when I am nil and I know, from the pass, that there are high spades in the hand, I ...
