@Linda-Nicholson how do I get into the new game rooms. When I select live games I get nothing but an invite to look at this forum

Yes, i would like to participate, already I like it but I wish the tiles in front of me were bigger.

@lexulous I'm not liking this new format. I will continue playing with it for a while and update my review but my first impressions:
- Not enough flexibility in setting game duration.
- No audible warning when time is running out.
- Withdrawing tiles is time-consuming
@Owen-K-Ferguson Appreciate your feedback,
- We'll provide additional time controls shortly. Not a problem.
- Shall add audible warning.
- For withdrawing tiles you may use the recall button to the left of the rack OR the ESC key on the keyboard. Do let us know if this solves the problem.
@majorwordster another way to spot bots is they say they are ..under new games on right side..red square for bots

I've been playing for a few weeks here and haven't been happy...I have invited DOZENS of people to play, but usually end up playing a bot which I do not want to do. I see other real people playing but can't get anyone to accept an invite. No real person has ever joined a game I set up, either.

Elise-I totally agree. I have had a couple of people accept the invites, but you have to wait forever. I hate playing the bot because you know you are going to lose. Very frustrating. If I see you out there, I'll invite you. Thanks for the post.
yes please add me thanks

Would love to be a beta tester.
There needs to be the ability to play the bots at an UNRATED game! Who the hell is going to beta test anything for you while getting stripped of points? Happy to have a go and provide feedback, but not if using an unknown format, a whole new layout, while playing a bot cheat! I've tried heaps, but the bots just don't want to play my unrated games....
@shaggydogswerve like who the hell is going to play a robot if when you lose, you lose 36 points???
Is there any way to make the squares/tiles bigger and darker as I find them difficult to read?
Any way to sort the players via rating?
Can you scroll with mouse through ongoing games?
@shaggydogswerve Unrated robots have been started. Thank you for the suggestion.
@jjf1012 We'll offer the theme options very soon for the board. Click on the rating title to sort. Yes you can scroll with the mouse, just put the pointer on the relevant area and scroll.
@lexulous right o, played 3 games, didnt mind it. Managed to win 1. One gripe is the "shuffle" pop up box that comes up when you hover over shuffle. Not needed I dont think and distracting
@lexulous Thank you. Still can't get the list of names or games to scroll .
I've been playing for years and appreciate this site. After playing around with the interface for the new version, here are my initial thoughts on things to fix:
I can't scroll the list of players, available games or watchable games.
Please get rid of all the obvious bots e.g. the ones with no avatar, strange names and never seen on non-flash version etc.
Allow us to transfer our rating. Why should I have a new lower rating when logging into this new version?
Add some different boards.
Add a dark mode. No need for all that white space around the edges of the screen. This would be easier on the eyes and improve concentration.
Don't kill off the flash version. Some regulars might still prefer it if it continues to function.
I may add further suggestions soon after playing a few games. Thanks for listening.
