Hi, please let us know how we can improve further.

Please do not allow 3 minutes per card as people take advantage of it and make a game last 4 hours.

No longer allow 3 mins. per card.

        Yes, the 3 minute delay is the worst rule in Yahoo Pinochle. I understand why it is there though. I suggest that each player get one 3 minute delay per game and all other delays are limited to 15 or 20 seconds.

        The reason it is hard to get into games is because people from the myleague tournament site use backdoors provided by sites in order to bypass the number people limited to and given room. Also, an interesting note about myleague is that I was in a room talking about these booter programs and some people from myleague were expressing how I could avoid booter programs by just joining up with their myleague tournament group and pay a membership fee to play spades. Is this where the booter programs are coming from? Are these the people who are using these programs in order to try to get people to join their leagues and make people pay to play spades? Also, it always seems that when these people are getting ready to start tournament time, a booter program comes through and clear out the room with a scrolling test bot. As I research into the use of these programs more and more, I have found that the myleague tournament groups who have played on this site for a very long time, are also the some of the very people who are using these booter programs. Yahoo! needs to change their gaming tables and eliminate all the competition aspects such as tournament groups and ratings because this is what causes the problems. It is absolutely disgusting that these people are trying to drive others to pay to play with booter programs! Get rid of the tournament groups and just let the site be a non-rated and non-competitiveve gaming experience for all! Also, you should look into all these sites who are breaching the security of Yahoo! with backdoors and booter programs! It is astonishing that this has been allowed to continue for such a long time with nothing being done! Perhaps it is time to get the American governments attention and report what is going on to the NSA and Department of Homeland Security?

        I sent a customer service complaint regarding an extremely abusive user and received the most generic and unhelpful message today. The user was the.junkyard_dog in Yahoo! spades beginner room who was stalling and booting the room with one of those booter programs (with research, VIPRASYS.org offers many programs to hack Yahoo!).
        1. No more 3 minute cards intervals, make it 30 seconds and players can initiate the bot a couple times if waiting for a player to return).
        2. NO CHATTING ALLOWED, PERIOD (it only leads to abuse and people are there to play the card game; it also helps with the scrolling text booter bots).
        3. Allow a GROUP BOOT option, whereas if all members at a game table agree and participate in pushing the GROUP BOOT BUTTON, the abusive player is automatically ejected from the game.
        4. Allow a GROUP CANCEL option, whereas if at least three people mutually agree and press the GROUP CANCEL BUTTON, the game is automatically cancelled by majority vote.
        5. Remove the rated game play and player ratings all together, although this might make some upset, it removes the competition aspect, which also leads to abuse.
        6. Investigate the website VIPRASYS and investigate the person(s) in which these programs originated and prosecute.
        7. Do nothing, which seems to be what the people expect from Yahoo! and everyone can go to VIPRASYS, learn how to use this hacking program and we can have a huge booter software revolution...?

        cheating players are banning other players and running boot programs
        THIS IS ILLEGAL
        reporting is a joke as too many players are abusing the report option
