plesae play only in one room

This is a FUN COMPETITIVE BINGO  Unfortunately some new players are not aware that playing in two rooms is not acceptable behaviour and considered cheating.

seems as if some of the veteran players are not aware of this rule also. at least from what i have seen in the past 2 days.

Calton I was in the room when you made the coment about a player who was hopping from room to room. I know that that player was not playing in both rooms. As she was changing rooms at the same time as I was.I am sure that it does look like that when you first start on this site I myself was fooled by it. First off when a player enters a room you are in that players name appears on your players list and remains there until you either change rooms or refresh your cards. the program is decieving that way. For example (i will use you and Cheryl) if you are in the corner room and cheryl is in the blackout room.I am in the black out room but hop to the corner room now Cheryl still sees my name on her PLAYERSLIST in the black out room even though i have left. You see me come in so my name is on your PLAYERS LIST So it appears that I am in both rooms if Cheryl refreshes her cards by either going out and coming back in or pressing f5 my name will have disappeared off her list becuse i am not there I am in the corner room. When a person is playing in 2 rooms there name will remain on the list in both rooms and you just have to draw it to the attention of Four or Jan they will check it out  if they are not available one of the other players can confirm that it is happening.I hope that this somehow explains how it can look like a player is in two places at once. And how when it is happening many players become aware of it quickly because it is very noticable to everyone and dealt with even quicker I hope you enjoy your Game and best of luck to you

CARLTON PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT A PLAYER ENTERING A ROOM IS RECORDED ON THE CHAT LIST BUT DOES NOT GO ON TO THE NUMBERED PLAYER LIST UNTIL AFTER THE NEXT INTERMISSION IF THEY LEAVE PRIOR TO INTERMISSION (DURING THE AWAITING BINGO TIME) THEIR NAME WILL NOT APPEAR ON THE CURRENT NUMBER OF PLAYERS LIST AT ALL.  ENJOY YOUR GAME BEST OF LUCK!!!

Thanks Memasue.   The we try to make the game fair for everyone the more complicated it is and it doesn't help that the software continues to show people in the room after they have left.  It helps alot that the veteran players are willing to explain the rules and software to the newer players.

perhaps if there was a way to only allow the purchase of cards before the game starts. this would stop some of the hopping which would in the long run help sort out those that play in more than one room at a time. not sure how everyone else looks at it but to me room hopping is a form of cheating. i know i have seen names that play in more than 1 room and will even win in more than 1 room within a 10 second time frame. this really is unfair to others, granted a lot of the players are on auto everything and never even know unless they just happen to check to see how high their name is on the leaders board. i understand that the script is rented but is there not some sort of option to turn on/off certain aspects of the game. ie auto buy or auto bingo. make the game more interactive. or perhaps do away with all but one ct room to prevent hopping. could have one room that plays all 3 types of games randomly. just some thoughts to give everyone a fair chance to win.

Carlton just some thoughts to share with you on my personal feelings about your proposal. We had an online bingo in Edmonton that went under because some players demanded to change the rules to what you are suggesting (because they took the game far to seriously). I personally do not recommend this as this is suppose to a fun site with a fun competition NOT Cut Throat Bingo Wars with tons of rules and regulations. THIS IS FOR FUN................. If you find it irritating or unfair there are sites such as POGO OR HEY BINGO FOR A MORE STRUCTURED GAME.

You see people who hop in as a threat why not look at a more positive aspect somebody has to win the game and if you WIN the game, then by them jumping in you got more points LOL  Since I have joined this site I have gotten to know many people around the world they are nice they are friendly and they get along!!! So why screw with it? That is what Chris designed the site for and he did a damn good job in my personal opinion. So please sit back meet the people and have some fun. GLNG

i can understand your point of view mema however i cant see a land bingo being very succesful if they allowed people to trade their cards in for others during a game i know that when i buy a bingo computer at a land bingo i am playing with the numbers that are already preprogramed into them. when a member goes in and out of a room like some players do then they are not only cheating others but they are also cheating the site. sorry you can not see that. and as for being cut throat i am not that way just think that everyone should have a equal and fair chance at winning. i can understand that you have been here for a long time and perhaps have made some great friends. this is great. however my suggestions would benifit everyone and i can understand that you would not like these changes along with a small handfew of others that do hop rooms. as for going to another site if chris feels that i am a disruption at the site then i would be more than happy to go elsewhere. i just thought that if i made a few legit suggestions that would in the long run benifit those that are new to the site it would be appreciated. i had already know that i would not be liked by those that feel it necisary to trick a program into giving them more points than they would get had they played the game as intended. but not to worry to each their own. and have a nice day. glng

I think your suggestions are good.  I just don't have that fine level of control over the game.  I can lower the card cost - to win ratio which would make card changing and room hopping less profitable, but I can't add timeouts or restrict when people buy cards.

The down side of lowering the cost : pts won ratio would be a the potential for coming out behind in points at the end of the day.

I am fairly new and the day I started the policies are somewhat confusing in the free games it does say you can play multi rooms when you first open the site thats what you see. It was then pointed out to me by a few players that multi room playing is not allowed. I review the rules and found this to be true. What my concern is it also says to point this out to new members in a non harrassing way I felt somewhat harrassed by one player and made a example of in the Friday cash game. Is this the way you want new players to feel or to you want them to return
