Wow! ...Takes a deep breath before beginning... 1. Let established players (those who have already purchased a keycode) have periodic updates for free. A fee could be charged for major upgrades (such as new versions of the software - maybe once a year) as long as the older version(s) could still be ...

I agree with Jonas' evaluation here 100%! I have said before that I use only the ONE nick for ALL my online gaming... Well, I have to modify this statement slightly - My wife ALSO plays Spades occassionally, and she has her OWN nick that is quite different from mine! And she is always perpetually ni...

As for the option to set a lower range for games, some sites allow a sliding scale to set ranges. Maybe a 1900 player wants to set a room to play anyone from 1400 and up, but under 1400 does not want. Or maybe he wants no lower than 1850 to join his game... Can we have either a slider, or a box wher...

...I can appreciate (although not necessarily AGREE with) the opinions of others who feel that their rights would be infringed upon by "spy software" that monitored their useage of other programs while playing on HW, but how about THIS as a compromise... Make the game run in FULL SCREEN ONLY with 10...

LeathrnLace, I like the idea of the Bozo list not being permanent, or having to "renew" it from time to time, cause, like you, I have played some people who I thought were TOTAL IDIOTS only to get to know them better and become good friends with them later. ...Maybe there could be a "buddy" list, a ...

OK, I've read arguments on both sides - making more rooms would reduce the incidence of fighting by having fewer people in one room to control, and splitting up and forming more rooms would spread the guides too thinly... Although in principleI would like to see rooms set up where people are directe...

Re: WOULD WE BE WILING TO PAY MORE TO GET MORE?

Actually, Gypsy, the "detector" programs are simply a program that notes when the main (game) window is out of focus (no longer the foreground window, i.e., the chat program window/web browswer/email client/whatever program is running in the foreground). So they won't tell you that someone is using...

Re: WOULD WE BE WILING TO PAY MORE TO GET MORE?

...You help me to get some additionnal software against Quitting ( i had 3 quitters in less then 15 min Yesterday ) and cheating ( software who tell when you are away)... {snip...}...Software to tell when you're away. So every single guide, TD, and tourney admin will now be labeled a cheater? Since...

Well, this is certainly getting a lot of "airtime"! :) I'm not going to make a long post tonite, I just want to pass along a quote the an old and dear friend of mine used a lot - "Justice must not only BE done, it must be SEEN to be done!" Regardless of the intentions of SCE with the question about ...

Yo.............. By the # of 'hits' on these 'threads' its apparent that quite a few KNOW this 'Board' is here, they just havent bothered to 'register'. Seems to me that the 'registration' process is the weak link. Do away with that and I'm sure u'll see more participation. Having PAID for the soft...

I agree, You cannot eliminate cheating; just control it.. By the way, I looked at the poll; On 423 viewers, only 23 has voted... I guess people are made their points :-).. :shock: The "Viewers" stat is a little misleading. I tried a little "test" on a "low-hit discussion", and every time I went int...

Let Everyone Know Where We Are!

Although there are quite a number of people who post here on the discussion boards, there are many who do not even know of its existence. Would it be possible to have an introductory message appear when players log in to play online telling them of the board and how to get there? I have mentioned th...

Will improvement sound the death knoll for SCE?

Very well put, grandmaS. I think that some of the posts that are agreeing with having a subscription service are not thinking it through in terms of the effect that would have on other members - I can't say whether it would be a majority, but I am sure that there are a lot of members out there (many...

Come together, not separate!

Some ideas might be: (feel free to add your own thoughts here) Exclusive rooms characters or fooms for members only. Advanced tourney features like Auto seating and our own league system and ladder rooms. Extensive personal stats like win/lose trends. Rateing chart over time, etc. Your own custom w...
