some players do it to annoy others, which seems to be the case here, most just want to fill their games so they can start.

'inviters' you should also bear in mind that those you are inviting can fill the criteria needed for your game and not keep asking those who are not rated high enough to join, especially in a set rated game. i.e. 1450 for example, and the ones invited are under that.

Here's the link to the request made in IdeaScale submitted by Jeff B:

http://silvercreekentertainment.ideasca ... 1149-11732

<snip>
Invite restrictions

I see everyday, people complaining about invites. Not knowing about the opt out button and/or managing some players ability to invite 20 times to the same game, again, and again and again...lol player post in here reiterate the same idea again, and again and again..lol
I've yet to see a solution that would incorporate everyones needs and reasonable requets without getting rid of invites all together. I hope you find mine helpful;
Keeping the invite option the same that it is right now, however, adding a two invite per lobbiest/per game restriction in place. Meaning, if I am sitting in the lobby, someone looking for players to join their game, could not invite me more then twice. I would say once, but we all walk away from the computer at times or get distracted and timed out.
This is just a new idea including a new solution for an old problem.
</snip>

Having some maximum number of times one can invite the same person to a game within a certain duration of time is something that has to be implemented. Up for debate may be how many times and in what duration, but any set limit would stop what Master 0f Hearts was doing here and what other harassers do.

Does it cause idiots to suddenly have a pleasant disposition and amiable personality? Doubtful, but it would make the site more enjoyable for those who come here to play hearts.

If you look carefully you will find that nic is not the real Master OF_Hearts player associated with that name. I tis one that was made up by another player to pretend they are, caught it the other day but hasn't been "fixed" yet

JUST DUST

PS - there are a few of these floating around for various other nics from the same player, usually have a "1" or some other character out of place.
TO BE OR NOT TO BE..... NOW WHAT KIND OF QUESTION IS THAT??? TO BE OF COURSE!!!!!

I alerted a guide and was told to "move on"

guides are only interested in hitting the silence button
