"Host Table" feature doesn't work well

Often when I use the "Host Table" feature, my table vanishes off the list of available tables before anyone joins it. Does this happen to others too? What is the cause? Is there a remedy?
@pat-davis It's possible that your table is vanishing because other players are joining tables more quickly than players are joining yours. When a table is created in Lexulous, it appears in the list of available tables, and as more tables are created, it moves down the list. If your table continues to vanish before players join it, please mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your device details.

@bonhi This is also regarding the Host Table. Many times when I host, I'm suddenly in a game with a player that did not request a game with me nor did I invite that player. It is frustrating because the player's rating is usually so low that the game wouldn't be recorded. I usually wait out the 3 min. timer and go back in the lobby (learned the hard way about resigning from a game) but of course there is always the jerk that does the very same thing again, thinking it is so hilarious to waste my time. Anyway, what is the secret passageway they come through where they can bypass the formalities of requesting a game and being accepted by the host? (It is usually the same 6-8 players.)

@karen-taylor It appears that this happens when players are joining games via the mobile app. I have had it happen frequently at my own hosted tables, and my policy these days is simply to delete the game before anyone has moved (or after the first move), which in either case doesn't affect the bottom line. It is a little irksome because it means you will have to set up a new hosted table. But the app players apparently don't have a choice; the site will sit them down at any available game!
