I miss yahoo. dont know what happened there... but i need my pinochle fix... i hope this site does it 4 me here
I have the same problem, when I make an avatar and save it, can't get the picture either, can anyone help on this?
Hi all you pinochle players, you think MG has taken over your site , well you need to visit euchre as they as well have taken that over as well,,,and now we have clones that have came in to take players names and abuse it and be vulgar and mean and nasty as well,, hope the clones stay out of pinochle as i like playing this as well... hope you all have a good day , and take care , watch that no one takes your name ok keep track of your stars or points what ever you call them in here.
Yes Michael... I see it in the other games. It wouldn't be bad if they went to a room that wasn't already in use by many of the regulars. We always welcome newcomers but this is ridiculous. I mean no one can get a word in in the lobbies. "Mass hysteria" is putting it mildly. It's almost every game.
MonkeyRoyale, why don't you respect the ppl that have been here and have helped you, and go to one of the lobbies that isn't in use by many of us regulars. There wouldn't be so much confusion. Like DEECE the last one on the list of lobbies. It would be so appreciated. I am sure many of the regulars helped you get situated here and that is because we are a kind group. So please show us the same kindness and move to a lobby that isn't used and chatted in by so many regulars. I am sure you are a great group and I would like to welcome you all. Just to a different lobby LOL
FYI MonkeyRoyale is a group of different leagues that play different games at different sites. They play for points. Dont know what points give them. Therefore it seems that doublerun and jumpbids will be overrun in no time.
ATTENTION everyone. The YAHOO MonkeyRoyale has taken the initiative to name DOUBLE RUN as their main monkey room. JumpBids is secondary.
My suggestion at this time, to avoid the mass hysteria, is for all the regulars to go back to playing in ACES again. Aces has served us well in the past and will continue to serve our needs.
Refer back to PAINT JOCKEY................................Please learn how to bid if you are unsure.
I am new here I came in through mr. thinking I am going to give up soon cuz I cant figure out how to get in a game
Ok not sure who reads these comments, but people if you open bid for 50 that means you are looking for a meld bid. If your just going to pass on the next bid, DONT BID. Even if you dont like your meld bid dont leave your partner hanging. There is a site you can go to, to learn how to bid. PLEASE USE IT.
One more little ditty Leah, the REAL Cillysnow has over a MILLION STARS. Whoever is impersonating me cannot show those so, that is a very easy way to tell the real from the fake.
hi cillysnow,,do you know how someone takes your name and your profile picture , same name same picture and uses it and is vulgar and mean and pure nasty,,must be a new thing to do on here,,they are nothing but pure low life low class and have no respect for another player.
Hi GreatNana... Thank you for your concern. All is well with me. Been a little preoccupied lately. I wanted to let you know in case you didn't, as of the end of this month (I believe) Microsoft will not be giving any more support or updates for XP users.Which will leave you very vulnerable to hackers. Just wanted to give you a heads up with that.
As far as a Pinochle league, they can do as Spades does and run their own. There is one guy that runs a daily tournament there. So, perhaps they can run a tournament rather than a "league".. Many of us used to play at yahoo and came here to play pinochle. I think the new ppl will enjoy games.com much better. Either way, good luck and a great big WELCOME to all the newcomers.
I have experienced a problem with another player "xxxxxsivers" who somehow gets seated at our private table. Don't know how he gets seated , but somehow gets around the password. We have changed tables and he follows us to the next table. He is rude, uneducated and uses profanity. How does he accomplish this and how is he allowed to remain a member?
There is a pino league who is looking for a new place to play (yahoo closing haha). Does anyone know who to talk to about this? Do they need 'permission' to play league and tournament games here? Thanks!
@will_you_lust_me scroll up and select one of the chat rooms with people in it. then scroll thru the tables until you find an empty chair. enjoy!
@the_loco_rican welcome from a former Yahoo pinochle oldtimer. while this site is a little different, we don't have the b.s. you often found over at yahoo. there is no one "taking over the lobby" and you aren't booted because of "poor ratings". hope you enjoy it here. stick around, get to know some folks here. I rarely play at public tables due to my stupid computer issues, but it's kinda fun playing against the bots.
@CILLYSNOW Hi all you pinochle players, you think its a riot here on pinochle you should visit euchre where MG has taken that over as well, and then not only that one we also now have clones who are taking players names and being vulgar and nasty and rude , so just wait hope this not happen in pinochle... good luck all you pinochle players.
@CILLYSNOW Well said Snowgirl. I have found the monkeys to be rude for many many years. One of the great things about yahoo was the ability to put them on "ignore", which I actually took the time to do. As a whole, they feel like they are better than anyone else and they will try to walk all over anyone who gets in their way. Hope you are doing well. I still intend to email you. Actually, I owe emails to several people, but I've been sick and just haven't felt like sitting up for very long.
Take good care my friend!
@CILLYSNOW Thank you Cilly!
@TiteA55 Above this you will see "chat rooms" Click on Double Run and it will take you to the main lobby of that particular set of tables. There you will see a listing of tables. If you click "sort by availability", it will sort the tables starting with 0 players through 4 players and lastly "private". You can choose to start you own table where you will be seated with 3 bots or you can choose to join a table with others
I can see your partner bidding 50 if you are the dealer and he wants to save you from being stuck with nothing. If you then bid 52 to give meld, which is natural, your P should continue to bid so you wont get stuck. However some partners think if you have meld you wont get stuck and pass. Trouble is you may have nothing but meld. So in that case I must tell you that if you are the dealer , assuming no one else bids, assume your partners bid is just a save bid and dont give meld. Best teacher my fellow is practice. Good Luck!
@paintjockey52 for those who don't know how to bid, could you please post the name of the site you referred to? also, please try to not take this too seriously. it's just a game :)
@CILLYSNOW if you so worried about it, why don't you just upload an avatar? seems you not that worried...
@CILLYSNOW Sorry you're having problems my friend. Bunch of sicko's everywhere I guess. Fortunately, we can choose to ignore them and just get on with our lives. Wish there were some way to email you or message you privately so I can give you my confidential contact info. Won't post it here, and I'm sure you know why. As for the fools that find it necessary to harass others, I only say I feel sorry for them because they obviously have no life or real friends. Take good care of yourself sweet lady! I will miss you.
@Leahwulfsgirl No Leah I did not. It's very easy to do that as you can see...Thing is, those that know me, know I would never act like that and I would hope that those same people would let others know it isn't the REAL Cillysnow.
I haven't even been playing pino lately. I appreciate the heads up. Though you realize by letting me know this, you risk them doing the same thing to you. And to anyone out there that reads this post, you surely read the review and know I only try to help ppl. So if you will Leah, pass it on that I will not be back in Pino for quite some time.
And again, thank you so much for the heads up. Take Care
@CILLYSNOW April 8th
@CILLYSNOW Missed you woman! Glad you're ok. Thanks for the info on XP. I knew Microsoft was going to stop supporting it, but won't my Norton continue to function? I also have a firewall program (can't think of the name). Either way, I'm just plain STUCK with this antique for now. If it dies, so be it. I'll hafta go borrow the grandkids school computers (they are homeschooled). Maybe I can save up and get a new "to me" computer later this year.
@trytolightenupSorry to hear your problem. Many here know how to do what ur stalker does. It is very hard to get rid of an a--hole just put it on ignor and it will lose interest.
@pampered We have had tournaments here before. No reason why you cant have a league. You can use the private tables in any of the unused rooms. Try ACES or JUMP BIDS. For the tourneys we just picked some tables and moderated ourselves. I do not know one person who may object. I say go for it and GOOD LUCK!
@pampered I have yet to see any "admin" type folks here. Cillysnow is about as close to an "authority" as you will find, but she's been missing in action lately and I hope she is ok. I see no reason why you can't bring your league here. Try it and if they don't like it, you'll soon find out. No way to "invite" to private tables though without giving out the password - perhaps you could establish one that is used exclusively by your league? All tables would then use the same password. Just a thought :)
@pampered Did you get an answer to your questions? There are many, many leagues looking for a home.
@GreatNana94533 @CILLYSNOW I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I had never heard of that group. It is my hope they will respect us as intelligent people should do. Though looking at the lobbies I see one person in DEECE and I see they are going to play where they want to.
Thing is, most here know private isn't really PRIVATE. And I am quite sure if they continue to be rude to the regulars ( especially the new ones from facebook) and taking over the lobbies with their chat some ppl are going to get pissed and ruin THEIR games. You know it will happen and there isn't a thing they can do about it. The regulars, the ones that have been here for YEARS have learned to tolerate ignorance from the few and I mean very few trouble makers we had in the past. But now that facebook is on board there is no telling what the newbies will do. All we can do is try to put MonkeyRoyales on ignore and hope they will go back to their precious yahoo. Though that is very doubtful due to the fact games.coms program is FAR better and more advanced compared to yahoos. I left yahoo years ago and came here almost from day one. And that was due to the ignorant rude people in yahoo pinochle.
GreatNana, I hope you feel better soon.. I'm sure you will too becuz you can't keep a good woman down long.. RRRRRRight ladies? Unlesss it is by way of, ummm neverrrrr mind LOL.. hugs GN and feel better.. I know you are missed by the REGULARS ( wink wink )
If you know your partner like i do you give meld because it may affect his choice of suit. Meaning if he has a 5 card run at 15 meld and a 10 card suit with just 8 meld he will have the flexibility to bid his better suit. Given your bid is high enough.
http://sbirnbaum.hnccorp.com/pinochle/Advanced%20Strategy.pdf ..read the whole second paragraph and read paragraph 5 last sentence.
@GreatNana94533 @CILLYSNOW My email is Cillysnow@aol.com in the SUBJECT just let me know it is you. I will continue to check the review in case there is someone that needs a little help. I just won't be playing Pino. I play other games here and have a different name for every one of them because of stalkers. Not playing here is just my way of letting ppl know it's a CLONE/ IMPOSTOR and not the real Cillysnow.
Looking forward to hearing from you GN.
@michaelrandjames @CILLYSNOW Hey Michael, Notice I said, " I believe"? lol as I wasn't sure of the exact date. Everything you said is great Michael however, not all are computer savvy and what you explained there may look like drunkenese to some.. LOL I didn't want to get too into it but I knew she had an XP from our previous conversations.
GNana, you can also just go to Microsoft.com and read up on what will happen and what you can do. Even though I know you plan on sticking it out with FRED & BARNEY'S feet pitter pattering along inside your PC until Bam Bam & Pebbles have grand kids. lol
PS ..LOVE THAT NORTON TOO !
Nana it just means that they will stop sending updates on the latest patches to XP SP3. Windows XP was discontinued last year. Every day some hacker tries to find different ways to get into your private information, and until April 8th, Microsoft will stay ahead of these attempts, or at least make repairs. Right now you can buy Windows 7 operating system to easily transfer files from XP SP3, or XP. Or you can simply trash what you have and upgrade to Windows 8. Many people prefer window 7 over windows 8 but with the changing times windows 8 is the System that offers more. I use windows XP SP3 and plan to ride that horse into the ground then go with Windows 8.1 or whatever is the latest at the time lol. By the way you don't need to buy a new PC, just the operating system. Keep your old hard drive and buy a new hard drive and Windows 8, that way you can still get to your current stuff. Good luck.
@Sunny45 @pampered No answer yet. I don't think anyone reads comments here too much. Others in league have tried to contact what is listed below, not sure they have received reply either. I hope they are ready for an influx of players, both individuals, and leagues. This site is very different from yahoo. It took a while to get use to it. A lot of nice folks play here....good players too :) I've been here about 1 1/2 years, and love it!!
