AVATARS

I think it would be proper to remain with the medieval theme and there are tons of new avatars in that theme that could be created such as; priests, a hooded guy, a huntchback, an archer, a peasant etc...

Fooms

Pie in the Face!

Can't believe no one has requested a "Pie-in-the-face" FOOM! Would be perfect! I also think there should be a "FOOM etiquette" Like FOOMing in Euchre only when scoring 2 or 4 points, etc.

Timer for bot to be placed

If at all possible. Spades really needs a timer as to when a bot can replace a player.

Players are botting and taking points, when a game is close. Unfair and I personally thinking cheating.

Guides when available do make them kick the bot. When they aren't, it's bot time, easy win time.

A suggestion of 1 minute or 2 minutes. We have a lot of people that will sub.

Forum Link In Game

These forums are so slow. A lot of players seem to be completely unaware they even exist. We see players saying this in HW euchre all the time. Why not put a direct link to them in game? Above the lobby menu perhaps? It may encourage players to visit and participate here, exchange ideas and maybe even find tips on how to better their play. It can only be a good thing.

Cheers

Cheating

I can only speak for hearts as I rarely play spades, but I am sure this is a problem in all the games to some degree. The same person or persons has been playing with 2 pc's in hearts for years now and there has to have been thousands of reports about the cheating that is going on and nothing is ever done. Since admin apparently doesn't have time to actually review any games that have been reported I suggest that a committee ...more »

Notifications

When you make a game it would be nice if the game made a noise when each new player joins. This way you can be doing something else and listening for the noise. Also ther rules for each game you have made should be posted in the game box, most importantly the rating for the game you have created.

Lobby

I think there should always be a moderator in the lobby. I know when I needed some help no one was there. There are so many rude people on this site it needs to be watched carefully.

Forfeit Option

A forfeit option would be nice - let's say you are down by 300 points, the other team needs 10 points to go out and they only have 1 bag. It's not really worth playing. You don't want to quit and take an abandon, but it would be nice to just be able to give up.

RULES LOCATION

Recently I have read the rules for HW. The issue is Ive been here for 7-8 months. I didn't realize that there were rules in four different locations. I was breaking rules I didnt know were rules. I have to imagine im not the first or will be the last unless we create shortcuts from each to the others..

Host absent

So many games I go to join have the host not there and we are waiting for ages. I think if the host does not start the game within 15 seconds, they should be booted from the game and the hosting goes to the next person. This happens in hearts mainly but also spades.

Breaking Tos rules with Sexual chat and all the swearing

I've come to the point, I can't know that someone is going to make a sexual comment or swear; before I can hit ignore. I do know, the regular one's that have to talk about sex at a spades site and swear; never stop. Always the same players. A suggestion, if I May? If they are constant repeaters, why not make a lobby just for them. They cannot go into Smoots, for a lengthy period of time.(three to six months) I and my ...more »
