Personally, I find bumping just as annoying as profanity.

But I do think it would be good to have a list of unacceptable posting behaviours, accessible to any user, and to give one warning before suspension of posting rights if the violation was not malicious.

The usual English expression you are looking for is just 'whole number'. So scores are rounded up on screen to the nearest whole number.

I note here a few feature requests that were discussed recently.

1) Be able to report a player and never be matched with them again

Yes, sadly we need this for the tiny number of offensive players on this site.

I just had a different opponent, Stefan R., use racist language to me when I beat him.

I find it amazing that this site, which promotes itself as a HAPPY, friendly gaming site (and generally is) doesn't care enough to do anything about this problem.

We should be able to send a screenshot of offensive language and then have you delete the user immediately. And we should have the option to block any user we are uncomfortable playing with from appearing in future games.

@Jeff: Perhaps you misunderstood me, or perhaps we have very different ideas of 'fun'!

To me, HAVING to keep playing in order to combat the inactivity penalty of 150 points is not the same as WANTING to play more, e.g. in order to improve one's position to a higher rank than previously achieved.

If success comes too quickly, and then a new player finds themselves slipping back down the rankings, because their initial position did not reflect their performance, but was just the product of an 'encouraging' algorithm, I don't think that will be motivating at all.

But I guess different kinds of motivation appeal to different players, so I can't speak for everyone.

Not sure I agree with this thinking about advancing new players much more quickly making everything more fun.

For example, the current leader on the Lost Cities board is a very new player, who has plaed many fewer matches than other people in the Top 10.

1. I feel that this devalues the efforts of the others, who have had to work much harder to get - and remain - where they are.

2. I wonder where the fun/incentive is for that player now? The only way for them to go in that game now is down.

(Full disclosure: I am one of those other Top 10 players, but I am really not saying this in a 'Promote me!' way.When I was new, I would not have wanted to soar too quickly, and am happy to inch my way up now.)

As we have quite a few multilingual players here, what about allowing multiple language flags?

(I noticed in the Spanish forum someone was saying she was worried she was the only Spanish speaker: if she had been looking for those who are reasonably fluent, not just thiose for whom Spanish is a first language, she would have had more options.)

I find it very distracting having popups telling me about new messages at the inn while I am playing. I understand some people might want these if they are looking out for a friend, but the ability to toggle them off would be great.

I don't even know what the benefit of completing a daily quest is, although I have completed some more or less by accident.

I'm using IE.

If I hover over any of my other buildings, a darker circle appears and I get the option to select, move them, etc. But nothing happens with the new houses.

I'm not really sure how to use the King's favours to customise my houses. I tried both clicking on the house once it was built and clicking on the favour icon, but nothing happened. Then I thought the castle might have a way to 'build' an improvement, but no.

Not sure what else to try.

I was adjusting the whole screen size, not the individual browser window. I've now done it that way and all is well.

Thanks.

The new layout LOOKS good, but on my laptop screen, it is impossible to see the whole playing area now, so I have the choice of watching what my opponent does and then scrolling back down to figure out what new card I've been dealt, or watching my own hand and constantly scrolling up to see what the other player has been up to. Either way requires quite a bit of memory, and all the scrolling makes it WAY less fun to play.

I never had the problem with the old layout, and really don't see why it now needs to be so high now: there seems to be much more room in the playing area than would be taken up even with maximum tiles. (On other games, the whole area is not shown on my screen, but the hidden information is not something I constantly need to look at, e.g. the types of birds which have successfully migrated in Migrato.)

I could change the size at which I view everything on my screen, I suppose, but that is not convenient when I am multitasking.
