DarkHorse Tavern -New Room In Euchre

Post by DragonsRath » Tue Oct 21, 2008 6:30 pm

I cant believe me eyes. A room where anything goes in a FAMILY orientated game site. There are kids that use this site and it is way to easy for anyone to get into that room. If you dont know the room im talking about it is DarkHorse Tavern. Not only is the language vulgar but the nics are worse. This isnt a porn site. It is a place to come and relax and play CARDS!!!

I would have to agree. You think just clicking that you are over 18 is going to keep the kids out? Are you insane?

Your supposed to avoid the room if you don't want to see it and tell the kids that room is off limits, those that can play here at 13.

Yeah I sort of thought the bad lang. for the most part would go away after a little while..... , the nics won't.

Interesting what some think means your an adult.

PS - Maybe we could add as an option a parental tool to keep the kids from taking a peak... ???

This new room is way past a joke and i never thought that silvercreek could sink so low i understand that they need to make it more interesting for adult players, however if this is their only solution then i think they will loose more than they gain. This is not something that parents will be able to police especially those that are used to the old Hardwood who dont expect it to change in this direction. this is just plain wrong and jonas and anyone else on the development team should be ashamed.

I had been offline for a week and come back in to see the new room that you speak of. Never has long as I have played in hardwood would I have thought that they would put in such a room. This site was set up as a faimly site with words being blocked and warnings giving if to the person saying them letting them know they were not allowed to be said in the site. I never thought that such a nice game site as hardwood would go and put in such a room not only in euchre but all the sites they have. What has become of the clean and friendly site that was once a place to come to and not worry about what was said in front of the kids.

saying you cannot enter unless you are over 18 is not going to keep kids out. The low mentality is what is going to love this room. These names can be seen on the "who is online list," and I find it disturbing. There needs to be a special key given to those who are over 18, to use this room, and the nasty little names should not be showing up for all to see. I have a feeling I may not be playing at HW much longer, and I am hoping there are many others that feel the same way I do. Grow up people !!!

Yes i agree with leadum. Ive been playing on this site for 3 years now and to see this room is uncalled for. I am a paying customer and wouldlike to see that room go. Jonas ans Silvercreek cant even take care of the rooms they have. I see where their priorities are and it sure isnt to the loyal members. Really not sure if i want to spend my money here or even continue to play in Harwood.

options dont seem to be so big with silvercreek anymore no phone support for sales or technical problems and half the emails never get replied to. I'd Like those options back before the filth they have introduced :roll:

oh its not your fault nothing to be sorry about, it is a good suggestion, however they seem to be taking away anything good and replacing it.

It may have something to do with the report i found on the net suggesting that visits to silvercreek has dropped by 38% in the last 12 months, and this may be a knee jerk reaction to that , but its a bad one. :wink:

I agree with the room. However I think the 'any nic goes' is a bad choice. I feel the nics should be allowed to enter both rooms, so therefore the Smoots naming rules should apply. The language will dissipate gradually as the novelty wears off, but I for one like the idea of being allowed to criticize and not get a warning or worse. We currently have very little right of reply. That borders on dictatorial. Mediation is good, but only if there is an easily used mediation option. All too frequently no investigation was done by the relevant blue authority and their power was used.

The new room will be abused for a while but will settle. By the way, to my surprise I see the bad choice nics and language is more common with the females, now that is scary.

To the users who think they are having a ball now, you will get sick of your new toy. Also please note that the current number of players in Smoots continues to be over 100 and in DarkHorse under 40, that alone is a statement.

A question for the Silvercreek experts....please tell me that a nic currently created in DarkHorse can not migrate from DarkHorse to Smoots or any other room, that would be a traversty, especially if a guide did not Playerize the nic before it was globally seen. This would create a bad situation for any very young players. If that can be done I beseech you to look at that problem very closely, and if you agree please correct it.

The nics can go from the darkhorse to the other rooms, some have already done so to test the theory. I think you have some good points there Terry and also see the nics being more of a problem than the actual chat which I agree will tone down after the novelty of it it clears.

Yeah I agree that the rules maybe overdone in the regular rooms and could be lax'ed some, why maybe this has been such a big thing to players with the new room. Also as stated and has been the case in all the rooms the iggy button works great. You don't like what someone is saying... Rclick and add them to the list.

I also see the problem with kids, I know when I first joined here my son (4 when the site first started) used to sit on my lap and play cards with me and never bad enough I had to worry about it which would have been ugly had I had to explain to Mrs. Ogre that the word he was asking about was on the card site. Yes he will now be waiting longer to get his own copy of the program which is going to be a major problem with him since he was counting down to just over a year now to 13. He is already an accomplished card player and very good at Chess, I guess he'll be getting that instead.

So yes I think it will mellow except for a few, the nics will have to be up to SCE, but they don't go away where the chat does.

So you have my opinion..... I really don't care personally about the chat, I've heard much worse, I just don't see where it is necessary and if you have to use it in every line of chat you type then you need to look up other descriptive words (adjectives and adverbs) to express your thoughts, people will get more of what you trying to relay to the masses.

JUST DUST

PS - Love some of the new names and I thank those that have honored me in such a way to actually use my name in THEIR nic. TY

Well where to begin,First all this new room is the most disgusting thing i have seen on a site that i have taken such pride on and getting new members to join,I also have my son as a host on this site,And to see what i did in that new room,i would be so upset as a parent if my child ever spoke like that to anyone,And these are adults.When i bought this game it said family site,since then i have bought 6 keys to this site and have spent alot of money in premium memberships in trying to run a respectable room,And for what :( I could have just joined a free site if i wanted to see this kind of behavour,What happended to treating ppl with kindness and respect,thats how i run my life day to day and run my room,So plzzzzzzzzzzz Clean hardwood up,if they feel the need to talk smut and curse and swear there are free sites for that or there im.The rest us should be able to have our kids come on here and know they are not in a room like that,And i believe u are asking for more problems then just the children,arguements will arise from that room and carry over to the other rooms,SO stop it know before it gets out of hand.TY shamrock23 H.A. of fire n ice

I agree with Terri....I think the "adults" that use that room are behaving in a manner worse then my children. There is no stopping anyone from entering that room. The use of nics in there is disgusting. Come on people this is euchre not a porn site, if thats the way you wish to carry on there is already millions of sites for that.
