Report Button for Obvious Cheaters



  • There ought to be a way to report people for review when they are so obviously cheating it's clear as day. This scumbag i'm playing atm is the most obvious cheater i've ever seen in over 15,000 games of Scrabble and Lexulous but there seems to be no recourse for this which is a real shame? And i'm talking about a real slam dunk case where even looking at the stats alone shows it, let alone their particular play.



  • @Ilija-Luka Hate that. But the problem is that there's no sure-fire way to know, so a button like that would surely be abused. I just block the person and move on.
    Yesterday a person was clearly cheating but I beat her anyway. She did announce on her hosting message "WG okay" so I didn't get mad. But it was a good victory.



  • My feeling is if people want to cheat it is their problem ..I use the opportunity to learn new words. My favorite comment to them is if you want to cheat fine, but if you interfere in my game no more. People seem to respect that



  • Just censor them after game so you don't play them again. I've censored MANY.



  • Some cheat, some do not, sometimes vocabularies are just different. I try to learn new words that I see here and as long as their playing does not interfere in my game..it is their loss if they choose to cheat



  • Once in a great while someone will say I am cheating!! How do you cheat? What is the purpose? It



  • @Maureen-Dowd-Bogosian say thank you, then move on Some people feel they should know more than they do so they cheat, others love to win at any cost .and do not realize they are losing when they win points....ask a variety of people there are variety of reasons..none worth cheating for..only cheat yourself



  • @Maureen-Dowd-Bogosian Cheating would be using something other than your brain or luck to play a word. There are various apps and websites that will anagram words which people use. To some, a win and high ranking is what's important. (I was accused of cheating for playing "quercine" which comes from quercus. I used to volunteer at an arboretum so I know a few botanical names.)



  • @betterlate1 what do you mean "interfere" in my game? You mean in a game you're playing with someone else? If they cheat in the game you're playing with them, they aren't interfering, they're just cheating. What am i missing?



  • @Bruce-Boer If slow connection or if tiles fly around on board or i freeze up ..have not run into this so far in this version but in other lex i have..anyway if does not happen here, u miss nothing. Cheating is their problem, the things I mention make it my problem.
