Re: Hi everyone

lol, it will set a 1650 game, of course. Hi Stacey. :) The way it works, Pat, is you have to be at le ast 25 points higher to set your game on 50 point increments. So, if your rating is 1515, it will set your game to 1450, however, if your rating was 1525, it would set at 1500. If you wish to set a...

I have to say that it's the rate you are playing with. Once you develop a decent rating, you'll find yourself in more competitve games where people aren't so afraid of calling.

Re: Hi everyone

Hi Pat, You are a gifted writer in that you have caused us, in so few words, to feel your cause and to understand your plight, bringing us right there in your living room (or a poorly managed bar) romanticized as the seeking child. Well done. This we understand. I play very much by the rules that t...

I can neither agree nor disagree with your argument. However, my suggestion was for the inexperienced 'not-so-good' player. The one that sits as a watcher in the high-rated games (those games always attract an audience and a heckler or two ;)). Perhaps a better wording would be that tourney rooms a...

I have an excellent suggestion that I would like to add to the mix. I hope you don't mind if I do. The Top 20 is one thing, but in reality it tends to be a Top Few. The same Few playing amongst themselves. Which is all fine and good. I have no doubt that much can be learned from astute observation ...

Our Christmas Wish

I clicked on the "New Topic" key and thought, hmm, no, not new, but I find that it's time for a quick clank or a squeak or two. Not that we assume we could turn the eye of the makers, or bend the ear, specially my being the lowliest of all. Not that we could ever be so presumptuous at such a task. ...

Well yes, we all like to be acknowledged, and I can see where it would seem rude. It's just that I've seen many changes implemented over the years and many times we've not heard a peep about it here on the forum. Maybe they like to be secretive. Maybe they don't like to commit to anything here in wr...

In my experience, just because there is no response from Administration does not mean they have not listened and are not considering the player's requests. It's more the sorta thing where we will one day log into Euchre and find the new option in place. No fanfare or drumroll. No, 'great idea guys, ...

Well, if the programmers are gonna spend a time on an update, they should ALSO program it so us players have the option to make a room private and let the host of the room invite only certain players in. There is already such a thing available. It's called Glenda's To me it would seem smart (and pr...

Convincing arguments has been eloquently presented on behalf of the reasons why this change would benefit the players of Euchre. So I will not bore you with such repetition. So I will appeal to the programmers on a different note. I cannot begin to pretend to understand the amount of man-hours it wo...
