EG24 INFO BOARD - 27/12/2018

Dear EG24 players
Thank you all for being members of our big worldwide gaming community! Our noble aim is to keep you informed about what's going on with/on EG24...! Each of you is an important part of EG24: YOU, all our fellow players, all developers and all EG24 staff members. This page will let you access all of the most recent new developments and announcement. Any feedback from your side (questions, ideas, suggestions et al.) is much appreciated: we need your help and input to make EscapeGames24 the best place for you!
Thanks for using EG24 as your (favourite) gaming platform!
****************************************************************************STAFF MEMBERS - thanks for your dedication!
Loki (Admin & IT support), LSquared (Admin), Nini xD (Japanese Translations), annaby (Admin & Replays),  EGW / Ale (Admin & Video Walkthroughs), Zoe (Admin), CoolDutchCat (cool) (Admin and IT support), Demolacion Sniffmouse (Author and IT advisor) and last but by no means least, SelfDefiant (Author & IT advisor)
****************************************************************************23/12/2018 (LSquared32)
🖳 Online Game Format Change Online games will now have an icon in their title, so they will no longer be jealous of the mobile games.  The big goal here is to make it easy to find online games if you want them and mobile games if you want them.  Having an icon for both will let us mark a game with both icons if it is both web and mobile.  Let us know in the comments if you like it or hate it. 
****************************************************************************21/12/2018 (LSquared32)
📱 Mobile Game Format Change Mobile games will now have an icon in their title to make them easier to find (and play or ignore, just as you like), and they will no longer be set as a top "sticky" post so you won't have to scroll past them to get to newer games.  Let us know in the comments if you like it or hate it. 
****************************************************************************24/12/2018 (Loki)
The new Information Board will carry a date from now on and so will the games. Hopefully, this makes things a little easier to follow.
**************************************************************************** 27/12/2018 (Loki)
Take care of our little EG24 escape kitten. You can make it jump out of the basket, stroke it, click on MORE to feed it and find a toy to keep it amused. Every time you interact with our cat, you are raising money for animal charities......and it's fun! Enjoy!

Great to see your dedication AO, Loki & LSquared! All the best!

jay-jay
thx for your compliments - like this we have proof that we are on the right path - the happy medium it is, as we unfortunately can't please each & every player's desires - but we have a sympathetic ear for all of your questions, requests, ideas & suggestions what concerns EG24

sorry but way too many replays simply dont link..

RANDOM
AO, Loki, LSquared and company...

You guys are doing a great job with the site. Keep up the good work! :)

I agree with Leroy about eliminating the random games feature. I'm able to play the random G2R, WOW and Eight Games that are about 3 years old (before I started playing games on your site about 2 years ago). But anything that comes up from 2009 to about 2012 seem to be non-working links, which would be difficult for you to stay on top of to see which work and which don't. So if you keep the random games feature, is it possible to globally set an age limit to minimize the number of non-working links?

Not sure exactly what you mean by setting a keyword. Do you mean just typing one or two words on a line above the rest of it, and does it need to be bolded? I don't know how to bold in the comment box, unless that's an admin-only feature. So I used the word random on top in this comment. :)

RS
Two suggestions: Can you come up with some way to show an average or even fastest solving time for each puzzle, or maybe how long it takes you to solve it? Sometimes I can play a game for an hour, but other times I am just in the mood for 5 minutes of relaxation. Also, for a star rating, can you have the system eliminate the top and bottom 5% of the stars so a few people can't skew things so easily? Thanks for all you do.

I like the RANDOM games, even if its a 50/50 shot, there are some good ones on there.

I agree with LOR. I love the random games and would hate to see them go. It is 50/50 but there are some great replays....Escape Men, Esklavos, Button escape, Chicks escape, Choi cats (sp?), Maymay, Twinkle, Neat, many more. OK sometimes the link is gone but hey it's worth a look

I personally don't bother with the random games.

I actually suggested yrs ago to owner label each game platform which is why it tells ya now..

(RE)HI all ☺

some of your questions are already & will be answered in the description above
once answered, the comments with the hereof questions will be deleted to keep the thread as straightforward as possible - we suggest to check regularly for updates (numbered in title)

have a wonderful (Sun)day!

Please make a deasent site. This is like at free site for amatours. You can not claim to be anyones favourite game site this way. Must be a joke.

MOBILE
I would also like to see mobile games in a separate thread, one that I could link to on just my phone while linking to the PC platform on the PC. Thanks for everything!!!

MAIN MENU
It appears that both "Escape" and "Escape Room" on the main menu at the top point to the same games.

RANDOM GAMES
I play Random Games occasionally but also see the broken links. Broken links looks real bad, especially with Random Games listed at the top. Maybe just leave them as the footer of the page?

Tiquer, this drives me nuts as well. Create a search on this site and then bookmark where you land that has "-mobile" at the end to eliminate these games nobody wants here in the PC section. Use that as the link to get here and to refresh. Works for the random junk most of us don't want to see either.

I'd like to request that the date be included when a game is posted to the front page. This site used to do that ages ago and it's helpful in keeping track of which games you've played each day.

MOBILE
I don't mind having the mobile games on the homepage since it's written in the game description.
But it would be nice to see on there if it's Android or iOS without having to open the actual game page.

Luke, my bookmark is to the Best Escape Games (just the DG24 link they provide at the top). But that link isn't a search I can just append -mobile to. It uses a "label" argument in the url instead of "search". Not sure how to combine the two, forgive my lack of url argument knowledge.

Thanks for the site! I love it!

Thx for the positive feedback to my post AO! Many players in the EG24 community have assertive points of view, which shows how much they're used to thinking critically about their environment, apart from being passionate about solving clues, and these traits are commendable, as well as too rare in our present world - but they sure put somewhat of an additional burden on the shoulders of people like the members of our new EG24 management team! Pls take comfort in the fact that all your efforts and your transparency are appreciated by many people :-).

I am happy that I am no longer seeing clues required to use Rot13... that to me was a big pain in the ass!

SPOILER/MOBILE

It's hard to please everyone. There have been complaints about too many spoilers, then ROT13 was introduced. Then there were complaints about that strange language some didn't unterstand. Now, ROT13 isn't used often anymore. If you play the game, are lucky not to be desperately stuck and just write a comment, you might come back after some hours and see someone complaining that there's no help at all.

I'd really like the option to hide and show spoilers by hitting a button. I've seen that in other boards.

For the mobile games: Please keep posting those mobile games! Some are great, and as EG24 is the only gaming site I use I'd miss them if you cancel posting them. I wouldn't mind though if they'd be shown in a subject of their own.

Thank you guys!

My comment would be don't overthink it, too much choice and people make no choice at all, less is more - I would think most players would rather quality over quantity

Sure would be nice if you could group the games separately. Some of us have to scroll and scroll to skip the Mobile games only. Very frustrating.

For many years now, I'm playing games on Escape24. I've seen changes sometimes good sometimes less good. In my opinion it would be great if the MOBILE games are not shown in the overview-page.
It looks cluttered with the MOBILE games and pc games in one overview. I suspect that most players playing on pc and therefore a clear page would greatly appreciated.

About SPOILER MAKER;
I really miss the good old hints and tips from fellow players. Now mostly you see direct spoilers (maybe I'm a bit leery, but because nowadays the most games are shown on youtube, it's very easy to give spoilers away).
ROT13 is apparently less and less used, maybe because it's to many actions?? An other option is: place a 'spoiler marking button' above the comment-field. A player who want to give a spoiler can blur the piece of text with spoiler within, by mouse-over the spoiler-text and click the the 'spoiler marking-button'. Then it could look like this: [spoiler]text[/spoiler]
Keep up the good work.

As far as the rating system goes .. If I dislike a particular style of game, say collect 50 objects and move them around to a different scene type of game, I am entitled to vote my opinion. If this happens to be a 1, so be it. You say some users are abusing this and voting down games, so obviously you are against them PERIOD. If you vote a game 5 because you are a nice person, it doesn't mean the game was great for everyone .. IT IS A RATING SYSTEM// If you want to make the world a happy place, get rid of it, or just automagically make every game a 5 .. WILL this stop the crybabies who CLAIM people abuse the system .. come on, grow up. If you don't like someones opinion and the ability to rate it IN THEIR OWN MINDS .. then .. DON'T ASK FOR IT AND COMPLAIN WHEN THEY MAKE THEIR OWN CHOICE.

This site went rapidly downhill when Dazz Ley was allowed to do her 'step-throughs'. It didn't then help when the current 'MD' (what a grandiose title for a footling job!) followed her lead (and those awful threesome conversations on the Eight Games offerings really were the pits).

Basically, things can only improve here if all the truly awful game-makers are farmed off into their own section of mediocrity (I'm referring to AVM, GFG, G4K and their ilk).

On the subject of Eight Games, Avast reckons they all lead to a data-mining pop-up.

To be accurate, Dazz Ley did not start the step by step posting. It was started by someone else and she just mimicked the person. Both, I believe, were just trying to be helpful.

I really dont understand the big deal about spoilers, step by steps....If you dont want to read them, just dont read them. The pages are set up read as walkthroughs.... You come to comments when you are stuck. You people need to take a deep breath.

My own two bits:

a) There is a difference between what Dazz Ley and AO do. AO tells us in advance it's a spoiler, or puts it within indecipherable gibberish.

b) Rot13 is not so difficult to use if people want. The conclusion is: people here don't want it.

c) When I first came to the site, I couldn't get used to the blatant spoilers. I thought they not just gave everything away, they impeded casual conversation. However, I soon came to realize that this is what people here want. So, if you can't beat them, join them. I began to drop hints and spoilers too, but I try to prefix them with the word 'HINT' or 'SPOILER.' I just think it's basic decency to do so. But that's just me.

d) I honestly today think that the USP of this site is just this, that people can get hints and spoilers up front. This differentiates it from other sites. (Other than the site supervisors' friendliness.)

e) For those complaining about quality of games. Wake up! The point-and-click cyberscape isn't what it was years ago. The initial developers (especially American ones) have moved on, or are making paid games now, because there's more money there. The pool of free online point-and-click games is quite small and generally just find-and-place. If the site included games from developers who say 'make any contribution you want,' it could get more interesting. My brief (mainly) is to submit one unconventional, non-mass-produced game a week, and I know how difficult even that can be. People especially complain about the indie developers, because though their games may be funny or story-based, their styles are either 'old school' or 'old style.' Developers aren't making free, interesting, character-based, story-format games anymore. (Like Carmel or Jo99, the best examples.) They make short puzzle-based games. The players like that. They don't have time to read or follow dialog. (Everyone knows, because of the internet, people have stopped reading.) The administrators of this site don't make the games. They can only give us what's out there. Maybe the developers making the mass-produced games can be coaxed into making better ones.

e) About the opposition to mobile games. I don't like them too, but even Carmel games publicly acknowledged that PC games can't be financially sustainable anymore and tried venturing into Mobile. The Japanese, who are best at the straight puzzle-based games people like, are also increasingly going mobile. We are doomed! Android emulators choke up my machine.

f) So, be realistic and stay positive.

g) I would suggest enlivening the text. Every game description starts out with practically the same sentence. (Example: XYZ Find the Fish is another point-and-click game developed by XYZ Games.) It gets boring and repetitive. If the developer, as often happens, puts their name along with the game name, their name appears twice in the first sentence itself. You don't feel like reading the rest. Since I am a language professional, I find this especially troublesome. Imagine a newspaper in which every story starts out with the same first sentence. (Well, some may joke that happens anyway, but you get the idea.)

Well, that turned out to be more than two bits. Thanks for everything, to the players and the site. Have a nice day. Cheers!

Hi guys, my my, what a lot of feedback. From reading through the opinions, I can only conclude that we cannot possibly deliver a site that pleases all. (You cannot please all of the people all of the time.) I will give my opinion on some of the comments.

RATING SYSTEM: As an admin, I can see how many times a game has been looked at compared to how many times it is played. When a game receives 1 star rating but has not been played, that gives us no idea if the rating is because the player read the description and thought, 'I hate this type of game' or 'I hate this developer' etc.... We wanted a rating system based upon difficulty/enjoyability level.

MOBILE GAMES: Whilst I don't play them (note, I don't post them either), players have asked for them and they have become more popular....we must post them. This brings me neatly to: HOMEPAGE: The mobile games,puzzles etc all appear, as the homepage includes everything we do to the site. I am working on the tabs. The top navigation bar has had some work which now has a working MOBILE section, I'm trying to relabel games to fit nicely into separate groups but relabeling 38,000+ games is not done easily, or quickly.

ROT/SPOILER: I have a nice script for a spoiler maker. The comments do not support all forms of HTML/JS coding so [spoiler] spoiler [/spoiler] does not work. Mouseover scripts worked up to 2016 and were simple enough to implement...alas, no longer. The spoiler debate will never be resolved....if a person gives step-by-step, others hate it, a complete walkthrough, people hate it, little hints, people say the hints are too weak....or too strong. I don't have an answer but we are providing more and more video walkthroughs, the choice is there to watch or not to watch (Noel, how was that for a language professional to read....you must feel ill! Sorry)

Noel, some very valued points here...the most important one to me was about the quality of games. We post the games as we find them providing a choice. If you hate G4K, AVM etc. why not scroll by to find your type of game. We have tabs and a search bar, you can search for a developer just as easily as a game title or style and again Noel has said exactly what I am going to plagiarise.....the developers you loved 12 years ago are more interested in different things now. Flash will not be supported soon, Unity and other methods of making games will take over but software costs money (tell me about it! I spent GB£450 on software I ended up never using). The developers don't do this for fun, it is their living, their job. It's hard work making games. We can't pick and choose what games we post as the players want fresh games every day and if the developers (mentioned above) are working hard to provide 7 games a week, the least we can do is to post them.

And finally, Noel again, the game descriptions are uniform to make life a little easier for us. In order to post a game, the process is never straight-forward....if anybody, and I do mean ANYBODY, wants to experience posting a game here, we welcome you to spend some time with us, in private, to go through the process.....the experience might just change your mind about the site. When you realise how difficult it is to produce a single game post, you may never want to do it again....to be honest, I dread posting games as I know, one mistake and people are lining up with baseball bats aimed in my direction....it's a tough old (unpaid) job but somebody has to do it.

Thanks for reading....feel free to tell me I suck etc.. :)

Thanks for the knowledge, Loki. I wanted to share the 'game description' suggestion in private, but since I was writing this I thought I'd share the suggestion here. Yes, it must be a thankless and unpaid job, as I learnt from some private communications with your team. That was probably why you could say I chickened out and didn't take up a full-time offer.

Keep up the great work!

Hi Noel, you submit good, interesting games...that makes you a part of the EG24 team....every little helps and we appreciate it....just for a giggle and to those who are curious. The process of posting a game is something like this. 1) find the game 2) get and save the thumbnail image 3) Copy the developers game description (usually, you will have to edit it to make any kind of sense) 4) open the eg24 editor 5) paste the edited description but also add the first and last lines with a search command allowing players to see other games from that developer 5) insert the image and make sure it is in the right place, and the right size 6) create a link to bring you to the game 7) open a new website with a different editor 8) search the source code to locate the game file and copy it 9) write the code with the included .swf file 10) polish the look of the post by making it flush and neat (notice, our posts all fit left to right perfectly, no jagged edges), make sure the spacing is correct than add the right labels to find the game in the eg24 search 11) add a video walkthrough from our team member and add the code leading to that video 12) preview before posting 13) Publish the post and immediately check that all the links work 14) have a nervous breakdown whilst waiting for the reports on links not working or the game is bugged etc. 14) check comments to make sure the game is loading well for players 15) take a sedative and finally 16) wait for the other admins to check your work and tell you it's rubbish and full of mistakes then go back and fix your mistakes. Here is a little glimpse of the html required to make a game playable:

well, it won't allow me to post that amount of code so I guess that feature is out

PC/MAC/LINUX Users wishing to play [MOBILE] games.

There are a number of Android Emulators on the market, and I have tried them all .. some were a little nefarious to say the least ( aNdy for example ) BUT .. the one I use on my mac/PC is BLUESTACKS from BLUESTACKS.com .. It is very simple to install, can be a little memory/cpu hog sometimes but worth looking at if you want to dabble in MOBILE games and see what you are missing. It doesn't do IOS games .. www.bluestacks.com ( and it is free )

FREE ANDROID EMULATOR
thx Unknown
for your suggestion - I d/recommend AndY either, as this emulator is known to place a Bitcoin-Miner on your PC...!
dunno Bluestacks & its features, but IIRC, not all MG (Mobile Games) are available there & dunno if there's an option for APK Downloads...
the Android emulator I use & am very happy with it is NoxPlayer with loads of useful features & free, too - check it out:


right click to open link in a new tab

btw, until now, never found an appropriate free iOS emulator... the 1 I found isn't secure enough...!
so if you encounter such an emulator, plz contact me - thx

SPOILERS/COMMENTS

If the spoilers and comments were the biggest problems it would be a perfect world.

You don't want:
- no hints at all as you don't want to check a VWT
- too subtle hints as they might be useless for you
- spoilers as they might spoil (sic!) the fun of playing
- spoilers in ROT13 as you don't understand that strange language and/or you don't want to open a new tab for converting
- spoilers placed between symbols/numbers/capitals or something like that as it's too tedious to extract the information
- nice-to-see-you-agains or thanks-for-helpings as they are not helpful for your problem
- in no way any off topics or chats unless it's your own opinion or you can offend the developer or other members here

So what do you expect from the comments? A map for a hidden real treasure chest in your neighbourhood? A hotline number (free of charge of course) for solving your individual problem in exactly the way you prefer?

I for one usually open the game, start playing, and do not read comments until I’m stuck and hope for some help (appreciating that in any way it’s given), find something quite sneaky and want to give an IMHO subtle hint, or when I’m finished and want to leave my opinion about the game. The good old times are over when there were games people played together – just check the Neutrals or Robamimi which could be played without help just by geniuses or the crappy games with cult status getting fun when playing together (Darakeguma or – YES – the EightGames).

What I don’t want to read: Offending people I’ve got to know as very caring and helpful like Dazz above (she restarted a game more than once to help people being stuck) from people who never helped anyone else. Don’t claim yourself to be a good person searching racism and sexism in some games and insult some users for nothing in other games.

I agree Meritneith with all of the above. I play the same way as you by not reading any comments and start playing the game only looking for help if stuck. Because the comments are set out in the order they are posted it is easy to scroll down to see if there is any mention of or hints left for where I am stuck. I can then go back to the game without reading further and play on. If I (rarely and miraculously) finish and others are still requesting help it's great to assist with hints and tips. Also reading further up the page I didn't realise people gave low votes simply for games/developers they didn't like! How negative, pointless and petty is that? If we all made a list of our top ten it would vary wildly from player to player. Just play the ones that you favour and miss out the others.

thank you for your words meritneith.

SPOILERS/COMMENTS
I agree with some of meritneith's sentiments. Whenever you get a large and random cross-section of people in the same place (e.g., and internet game forum) there will be disagreement. Obviously, there are as many opinions as there are players, and many of them will conflict. No single one of us is entitled to have this (or any other) forum exactly as we want. But the one thing we all benefit from is a space free of negativity and pettiness. Sometimes I forget that some users here are probably children and don't meet adult standards for public behaviour and communication. But the more civil we keep the discourse and keep our sense of entitlement in check, the more we can all enjoy using the site.

Thanks to all of the admins, developers, and players who keep this site humming along! I've enjoyed many years of playing here, and look forward to more :)

I have been playing on this site for 10 years...and the one thing I just don't get is when certain people feel the need to criticize things, whether it be a game, another player, a developer, etc.

What I have said for years is that these games are a gift - a FREE gift - and when you criticize it's like saying you don't like the gift you've been given. That is is just plain rude. The old saying "If you can't say something nice, say nothing at all" applies especially here, IMO.

Zoe, thank you for your comment. Valuable and wise words!

I really hope we aren't going to have animosity on this site. I was here when it all fell apart the last time, and the chat page, which I really enjoyed, was taken down. I enjoy seeing who is making comments, and giving hints - but please lets all keep it light and happy. I for one, loved the Eightgames ..... a bit of relaxing entertainment at the end of the day. Not all players enjoy the same things, but here, IMO there is something for everyone....let's lighten up and appreciate it for what it is

This is my favorite and ONLY place to come for escape games. I may not post but I come here for help. Love the games. THanks for making it free. Keep up the great work!

As Booknut says this is also My Favorite site for escape games. You (Administration) are doing a splendid job. Thank you all.

Thanks for this section) I finally figured out mobile games, I play with pleasure)

I love the option of an upside-down spoiler! It takes just enough effort that you won't read it by mistake.

Great job Loki!

Zoe: You just did the exact thing you said you hate. :(
BTW, these games are NOT free. We pay for them with our time, which is valuable, by watching ads. So when we feel that we are not getting equal value in return for our time it is entirely reasonable for us to mention it, and to say why we feel that way, so that the admins and developers can improve.
I agree wholeheartedly that the manner in which that has been done in the past was very antagonistic, and resulted in a lot of good people being driven away. But creating a site free from legitimate criticism is even worse than one full of antagonism because it is artificial. At that point you might as well just hire shills to write the comments.

Many years ago I suggested that a far more strict approach to comment moderation be taken, and that if a comment wasn't a question about gameplay or a hint/walkthrough, that it be quickly deleted. I reiterate that suggestion now, along with a suggestion to put up a "Feedback" link on each game page which takes users to a page where they can provide written feedback on that game, its developer, or any issues they may have. That way the differing opinions won't clash in the comments section and derail it from its actual purpose, while at the same time the site admins and the developers can get the feedback they are looking for. I'd also like to see the chat page back up so that personal chitchat conversations (which also have historically worked themselves into petty user factions) don't also derail the game comments page.
Either way, without some sort of strict moderation the unpleasantness will be unavoidable simply due to human nature and varying personality types. Every social interaction website has the same problem, and strict moderation has been the only successful method of dealing with it.

To clarify, the Feedback Page would be a web form, and the feedback itself accessible only to the admins and the game developers, not published in a public forum.

Hi guys. The Contact Us form, top right of every page, allows you to give us feedback, please have a look at it, only a username, email address (so we can reply) and a message are required. We read each and every comment that comes our way. Ohhhh, do I argue the FREE issue........oh, go on then...the developers need the money to live, watching an advert has to the cheapest game on the market. We could talk with the developers and offer them money for the games to be totally advert free but that would mean we would then have to charge you to play the games.....see our dilemma?

Let me know if this is a satisfactory response to your points.

Esmerelda Pumphandle: To clarify, what I meant was people who insult. Such as "this game/developer is stupid". Negative, derogatory comments that have nothing to do with the intentions of this site - which is having fun playing games.

And by "free" I mean that the games do not cost anything to play monetarily. Paying for a game with "time" is a choice we make for ourselves, not something that is required in order to play the game.

I like the upside-down spoiler-maker.

@Loki
The suggestion was for specific game feedback, such as "too short" or "clunky navigation", etc. But yes, it would be a similar thing to the site feedback link. Keeping subjective criticisms off the comments page would eliminate them turning into criticisms of the criticisms, which invariably leads to the sort of thing Zoe is talking about.
I certainly was not suggesting that you eliminate the ads, I understand the necessity of having them. I was merely pointing out that they create a financial relationship in which we, the users, make a contribution.

@Loki and Zoe
That contribution, while not strictly financial, does have financial value to the advertisers, and in turn to this site and the developers. We *are* therefore giving something of financial value. And if we didn't give that, the games would indeed go away. So it really isn't the case that we are getting these games for free, even though we are not paying money for them. We are paying for them with our time and attention while the ads are playing. Again, I am not knocking this. It is a very good and workable financial relationship. And Zoe is correct...like all financial relationships it is voluntary. But to say that we are not required to do it in order to play the games is only true in the immediate sense, because it is a relationship and if only one side is giving the relationship will end. If users don't watch the ads, nobody will get paid and the devs will stop making games and the site will close. So in that sense it *is* required that "enough" ads get watched to pay the bills, even though any one individual user is not so required. Meaning that even though the games are free for any individual user, they is not actually free overall. The ads must get watched, or the whole thing stops. (Or as Loki said, we have to switch to actually ponying up cash.)

This is all very tangential to my suggestions though, which are primarily geared to addressing the concern that I share with Zoe regarding animosity in the comments. My point is that if you reduce the amount of subjective matter as is practical, you correspondingly reduce the sources of conflict and disagreement, thereby eliminating fuel for the animosity fire. Let users provide the developers with feedback, but let that feedback be private rather than public.
Keep the public comments strictly related to non-subjective game play (help, hints, bug reports, etc.), and things should be much more conducive to friendly communication.

@Zoe

Thank you EG24 for all your hard work. I use only your site to play these type of games and I love the diversity of them.
I would like to see the MOBILE ones diverted to their own spot as I do not own a smart phone.
Whether good or bad I appreciate the developers supplying us with these games every day.
Love the video walkthroughs you have added as they are more useful to me than some of the obscure clues left, especially when I can't get past the first scene because of missing the vital object to get me to the next scene.

Keep up the outstanding work.

i also only play on this site and for people who don't want to read all the comments just to get a hint/spoiler,just do what i do,press f3 and type in what you need to know about eg knife,hammer etc also keep up the good work AO ,Loki,LSqaured,Nini and Annaby

I do agree with Zoe & Please don't delete this one, everyone should be allowed fair comment, I always liked this site & thanks for the good work, in the past before I signed in I used to use this site for hints, especially on SD games & really enjoyed reading them Zoe small tool all those people was friendly & fun to read with game hints not lots of other stuff like complaints about developers ads etc, there wasn't a problem, I don't understand why those W/T are not happening now & why so many complaints, Ads are important for free games, Dazz Ley was thoughtful & good but her step by step & as others also did was considered too explicit for some but not all, better a bit hidden, not moaning about it, she's a sweet person being kind & helpful, I like ROT13 but that doesn't suit all, but is that not what it's all about, it's called a walkthrough, Don't you think that having close video walkthroughs with the games is inhibiting the communication even more than it used to have, you could always search for VW/T if needed, I put some subtle hints in one game & someone complained that I should put hints not comments so I did a step by step only the once for this person, there were no other people on the comms.

Hi Joycy, we only delete when comments go against the commenting rules....ie, damning or targeting another player etc.....blah......This won't be deleted, this is valuable for us to know....it is what we wanted when opening the thread....FEEDBACK! We like feedback, even if it isn't nice for us to read.....it still has a place and we read everything posted so, keep it up guys, tell us what we do wrong as much as what we do right! Cheers!

ok thanks Loki, I do like the upside down hint, great idea

I have a suggestion for this thread only. Is there a way to reverse post the comments? This thread is getting lengthy to scroll through all the comments to get to the latest ones. I am enjoying the upside down format, one can skim skip right over them if not wanting to read them. If we have WTs, really don't need step by step hints being posted. An occasional hint is great for tricky puzzles or when color options are too closely related, or a puzzle has a glitch. just saying.

I have noticed that as of late not many people post hints at all. Mostly they just rate the game or if they comment they say "Great Game". What' the point in posting that? It doesn't help anyone. This used to be a great site for people to play together and leave subtle hints. Seems like no one does that anymore :-( I do like the video walkthrough link but lately because no hints I have to use it more and more and I don't like that. Has anyone else noticed this?

thank you Alpha for your dedicated work and thank everybody who s during almost 10 years ,were posted games,hints,tips and walkthroughs....i know many of you by names and im sad when i dont see you so often as before ....anyway,i appreciate Eg.24 so very much ,it helped me in such a differents way during years :D <3

I agree with Daisy. I think players are so critical on comments posted that now, people don't post anything. Its a shame, this used to be a fun area to go to just to see how people are progressing in the game or to get some help.

If I don't need to ask for help or leave hints for tricky stuff, or point out a bug, oftentimes the only post I might make is "Nice game" with a thank-you to the developer. There's a reason for that besides merely giving positive feedback. It lets me know I've already played the game and not to play it again, as I often forget the names of games or it may come up some time in the future as "random."

I agree with Sugarcrush, because of my time zone (Australia) the games are already played and comments made....so I will comment on a good game if it's warranted....but there's no point in me leaving hints

HINTS/COMMENTS:
plz also think of the later players who may play the game days, weeks, month or even years later - the game threads these days aren't unfortunately like in the past (except mayhaps when Dazz is playing...), i.e. each & every step is commented about
there may be some hints placed now, but you never know if another player finds sth you considered as easy rather difficult...

I notice the upside down spoiler shows numbers right side up but back to front?

Hi Robin, you are right. I haven't programmed the unicode for upside down numbers yet....I shall be addressing this matter soon.

Get rid of the utterly trite 'good luck and have fun' at the end of all game descriptions. There's very rarely any luck involved in the games posted here and any element of fun is non-existent in all those games produced by the likes of AVM, G4K, GFG, and most of the other developers whose names can be initialised.

wow, Long's sister. How do you feel when people say to you "Have a good day"? They are just saying they want you to enjoy yourself.

"Good Luck and Have Fun" has been posted after every game by every Admin going back to at least 2007. I like the EG24 tradition.

SLS - if you know of good games that aren't posted here, we'd all like to see them. AΩ and Loki will be glad to look into them.

there is a walkthrough for all games
so why do "fun action" to hide hints, that's why comments are possible or have I misunderstood something !
Continue the good work done for all "playing birds"
Many Thanks

A kofod
thx for your compliment ☺
spoiler maker: the fun(ny) upside down feature can be used for camouflaging the hints a bit more without having pure gibberish (like from ROT13), so that they can't be seen when just skimming thru comments to find the hint you need, i.e. you d/get spoiled with stuff you d/want to know (yet) - but it's not a must to use that spoiler maker
VTWs: not all players like to peek into or watch a VWT to get unstuck - they prefer to read the comments, hence let them be even more, also for later players, after game is not live anymore...! (long-time players: remember the good old days! ☻)

Rules should be for everybody, including moderators, so was surprised to see this comment today
Loki 11/24/18, 7:11 AM
If you really want to rescue a really old pumpkin, knock yourself out and go for it.....We don't make the games....just wanted to point that out!

Hi Jon, sorry for the flippant remark. I was just amazed to see Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas games all in one day. When I was posting the game, my first thought was that a 24 day old, possibly carved, pumpkin would be pretty foul by now. Would you like me to remove the comment?

I'd like to be able to thank some really useful comments (soo thankful sometimes) by just cliking something, not adding more unnecesary comments

POSITIVE FEEDBACK ON POSTS

I agree, Zelai Zelai, I have thought that many times! It would be great to click on something the gives positive feedback when someone says something helpful, funny, kind, useful, etc. without adding to the bulk of the thread with additional posts. Like a "Like button" or something.

Loki, I saw you also commented in a similar way on the next game I played. Personally I like the banter. But if the Mods start it, the rest of us cannot be criticised for continuing banter through the thread. I believe that overall the use of the board will increase if you allow banter and more will therfore participate in supplying clues.

Jon Kay - I also enjoy the banter. And I think that "having fun about the game" gives us plenty of leeway in that area :P (at least I hope so!)

I cannot disagree with Jon Kay. It's a valid point that my comment had no useful purpose to the game. Does it incite people to use the threads in an incorrect way? I'm not really sure. I will remove the comment as, again, Jon Kay pointed out, EG24 staff should not be doing things just because we can. If I make an inappropriate comment, you can be as sure a member of the team will remove my comment along with a warning or a reminder of the rules. For the sake of harmony, I shall remove the comment and note that, while I thought I was being humorous, it's not my place to post pointless comments. Thanks for the feedback, glad to see the system works and remember....when coming to this thread, hit the END button on your keyboard to jump to the most recent comments.

I am loving the end button. Tip of the year for me. I agree with having the banter. Escape games are a weird and wonderful world full of homes where keys are kept in slippers and down plug holes, tv and aircon remotes are hidden away in drawers and sewn into the back of teddy bears their respective batteries having been removed and hidden on window ledges and in safes. People demand ice creams and pizzas on street corners in exchange for acorns and tyre irons. It's a fun world so there should be fun banter too.

Hi Scarlet, when I first stumbled upon this site, back in 2006, when it was dark and a bit intimidating, I fell in love with the genre of game. But the number of times I would play a game and found a sledgehammer or something like that, I couldn't help thinking....break the door down with the hammer!! But then...where would the fun be in that? Yes, it's a ludacris world, the developers are imaginative and the games do inspire banter...you guys are getting a Christmas present....watch this space!!

[Runs off to look for presents behind all cushions and under beds..........gah too dark under bed and torch has no batteries :-) ]

Would you guys like a "Bottom of page" button to make life a little easier?

For these updates, can you start and sticky a new thread and then just link to the old ones?

Hi Pellia, sounds easy, alas, Blogger is not so willing to help. I can put the "Bottom of Page" button" in place in a few minutes if you think that might make things easier.

The more I think about it, the more I think that the thing to do would be to abandon Blogger altogether and just stick with Facebook. It is better suited to social interaction, whereas Blogger is (as you might expect) only really well suited to be a blog, which is generally one-directional.
It would save a lot of work for you guys, as well as consolidate the userbase into one uniform location.

Many people, me included do not like Facebook....so I wouldn't be commenting there.
I'm also scratching my head as to why there is the upside down spoiler box, when some games I go to and look at the comments, Daz has written the game from start to finish. This spoils the game for me if I only want a hint on somewhere where I'm stuck.

I do not understand why the loading of this site slows down and pops up a window with a notification so that I disable anti-advertising. I have disabled antiadvertising !!! Could this be because of the card I put on?

I really do not understand what the problem is on here! Without wanting to age myself i have been using this site from at least 2005. Back in the day I was getting my games on Gamershood and when I needed help I would end up on EG24... Dont ask me how it would just happen. I found myself going there moer often, so then I just kind of dumped that site and was going to EG24. The walkthrough page is just for that, to get hints and help and to have fun with other players. There mist be a reason you all go to comments, right? The comments are there for everyone, not just for your specific needs or answers. Can you just scroll through what you dont need to know? Is it really that difficult?? This site has changed so much. We used to have fun on this site, saying hi to everyone, thanking the developers making fun of ourselves for missing the obvious, etc. Now there is no such fun anymore. Everyone is so critical, no one wants to post anything anymore. It really is quite a shame. We are here to have fun. We are just playing games. We are not here to solve World problems.

Sorry for my typos and rant, but i think you all need to chill. Its nice that we have a staff of admins, but really, why make this so corporate? they are all doing a nice job, but it was really fine the way it was.

Nafanja
made an adjustment - does this message still show up for you? (refresh)

btw, congrats to already 100 comments!
remember:
with hitting END key on your keyboard, you are able to jump right to the end of this page to catch the most recent comments

& plz remember to set a keyword at the beginnig of your comment about the topic you are sharing, so that other players are able to find a specific theme by using F3 (or Ctrl+F) as search function - thx

case & point AO. lol!

latest comments feature

Dazz
thx for your suggestion
this installation is on top of our to-do list - our hard-working IT manager Loki (thx a bunch for your dedication! ♥) is about to optimise the feature for the Blogger format (pretty much a challenge...!) - watch this space...!

@LOR
I remember those days as well, and I think the new team here is going to be trying whatever they think reasonable to encourage the return to that atmosphere.
Unfortunately, people change. Therefore the things people use also change. And sadly those changes are not always for the better. Across the internet social media sites are becoming more hostile. It isn't just EG24, it is humanity itself. I am reminded of a line from the first MIB movie, which I will paraphrase here: "A person can be smart, but people are dumb, panicky dangerous animals." The internet has brought us all into closer contact than we are comfortable with as a species, and we are experiencing the beginnings of a backlash. There is a reason we branched out across the planet in tribes instead of clustering together in larger communities, and it wasn't a biological reason. It was psycho-social.
Point is, there is no going back to those days no matter what gets done here. That animosity will creep in. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't all keep trying, and supporting each other in the effort. That is why when I post I always try to offer alternative solutions, rather than just complain. They are not always practical, and not all of them would work, but sometimes they do inspire other ideas that end up working quite well. You never know.

@iwanttobreakfree
Yeah, I know that some people don't like Facebook and that it would cause some of our users to drop off. What I don't know is whether it is "many", and whether it is TOO many. I merely suggested it because Blogger's limitations have really become prevalent and problematic of late, and I wanted to mention it as a possible solution, even knowing that there are factors which would make that undesireable for some. Like all solutions, it has to be weighed by the folks who do have the answers to see if it is practical or not.

A New Platform isn't really doable for us. I do my best with the IT but trying to bring 38,000 games and over 1 million comments to a new platform is totally beyond my capabilities. I wouldn't know where to start to be totally honest. The only possibility would be to have an "EscapeGames24 Part 2, this time it's personal!" type approach with no real archive of games. A clean slate. Of course, this site would still exist for those who want to go back and play old favourite games but that would also mean we would have to admin 3 sites instead of the existing 2......and 2 is pretty tough with a small team. There is no question Blogger was not designed for the massive entity that EG24 became....hindsight, always discovered when it is too late. We must work on to do our best and serve up a daily helping of games with the tools we have.

By the way, do you guys like the new buttons? "Go to bottom of page" and "Return to top"??

NEW BUTTONS...
...are superfluous to me, I always use the scroll function of mouse and keyboard and that´s good enough for me

NEW BUTTONS

Love; thank you!

Love the buttons, Loki - thanks!

NEW BUTTONS

Liking them since my keyboard doesn't have an END key.

Excellent, to some, it's very useful, to others it's superfluous.....that, for me, is a win! No damage done :D

I just wanted to pipe in and say I am so appreciative of all the work you are doing on this site. It has a more personal feel to it now. Everyone is just really great!

Also, I skimmed some of these comments and I wanted to agree with use iwanttobreakfree about Facebook. I refuse to do facebook, for many reasons, and I would hate to see any kind of movement to just facebook.

thanks for the buttons! I have no end key either

Hi guys, I'm really struggling with the rating system. I wanted to make a system where the game was rated on difficulty level but I just cannot make it work here. My code works on other sites but this site was set up in a particular way and I can't get round it....I'm no professional programmer and it shows. I would like to ask, what do you guys want next? What would enhance your time here? All suggestions will get a response, even the ones that tell me to shut up. We like feedback!

Can I also add, we are getting so much great, positive feedback already. This site is under new management and is going from strength to strength....

@Loki
Regarding the move to a new platform, I understand. FB would probably have a problem with you hosting that much on their servers anyway. :P But perhaps you could host just the comments/game pages on Facebook, while keeping the games themselves here. Make it public so everyone could see them whether they have a FB account or not.

As far as suggestions for the rating system goes, I'd just ditch it entirely. The feedback system will get rid of the ones that don't work at all, and the comments will make it clear for those who look at them whether a game is worthwhile or not. Alternatively, if you did host the game/comment pages on FB you could just use their native "thumbs up/down" rating system.

FWIW, I am not trying to promote Facebook. I don't have a Facebook account myself, and have no plans to get one. So I am not trying to exclude anyone or shill for FB. I am just trying to think up ways to save you guys work and make your jobs easier. Like everyone else, I appreciate the efforts you are all making toward saving this site! Thanks!!

A little more on the ratings issue:
You will never have a rating system that can't be easily skewed without introducing a login/account system. It really does ultimately boil down to which one you'd rather have.

Is it actually necessary to having a rating system?Personally, the only thing I look for is how many comments are there, as I enjoy reading those.

Ratings:

I'd probably be okay without them. I don't play developers I don't care for, 5-stars or no. Developers I like, I will at least attempt to play regardless of a poor rating. I do currently rate games in case it helps someone somehow.

These are all great, useful comments. I would be uneasy totally removing the ratings as we use them for our Best Escape Games feature. The RANDOM games are not selected by us but by an in-built 'lottery' feature whereas the BEST feature, that is picked by us. Perhaps, one day, I shall wake with a great idea with a perfect solution but I'm not holding my breath waiting for that day! Please, keep the comments coming; suggestions, faults, complaints, WOW, YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING or, WOW, YOU GUYS SUCK! It's all valuable to us and we are going to make this site better and better and better. We are already the best, but why relax with being the best when we can be the bestest ;)

As per my update 12, Ale is now an admin of the site. If you have requests for a video walkthrough of an older game that has no video, you can request one using the Contact Us tab or the Contact/Feedback button, right side of page.

Ratings

flawed though the system may be, it's better than nothing. I always look at the ratings so I don't miss a good game I might have overlooked scrolling through all the bad ones. And if you are always looking for good games to play again, as I am, the ratings are very valuable.

Ale - Congrats!!

Yes I used to like the 'rating' button on Gamershood which would bring up the games in order of rating highest to lowest so if you fancied you could go back and play old games with highest rating without having to search.

I have an "end" button, but not a "return" button. Is it somewhere down the bottom here, and I have missed it?

iwant - check the bottom right of your screen - big blue button

IWTBF
you may turn off your adblocker to see the RETURN button...

Those snowflakes are a neat trick, but
also quite annoying as they disturb
the cursor and cause bad clicks.
Please turn them off, or hide them from
the cursor
Thanks.

Please desist with the gimmicks. The snowflakes are beyond annoying, they are causing eyestrain. I had to go to another game site to play the Wow game. Driving players to another site is not a step in the right direction.

snow
as per info from our IT manager Loki, the snowflakes & the Santa cursor are removed already some time ago - you may refresh the page (really dunno why you still have them...?)

Ah, so it was Loki the trickster? Thanks! It is OK now, but the flakes were falling within the past 15 minutes. I appreciate the response.

Now I see my "return to top" thank you

I'm sorry guys, I wanted to add a Christmas theme but it seems to have annoyed people more than brought a little fun so I won't add any more special effects to the site.

Loki, the snowflakes were actually
kinda nice. It was their effect on
the cursor that was annoying.
Happy holidays!

Hi guys, what about I put the snowflakes on the main site but not on the 'play games' area? Would that be ok? I'll give it a test run and if it interferes with anything, let me know asap: loki.serves@gmail.com

Santa Claus cursor is cute, doesn't get in the way. :)

SNOWFLAKES

I like them :)

HO-ho-ho, Santa has come to EG24, so nice to see him !
It's a little bit early but I'm sending my warm Christmas-wishes to all of you on this site where ever you are !

I do like the snowflakes and especially the Santa pointer. Great job :)

Awwwwww the snowflakes are so relaxing :)

Jeepers, those Christmas lights are a bit bigger than I expected!

Yes or no to the lights guys?

Like the snowflakes, but, sorry, not liking the Santa cursor. Playing on a laptop and the pointer is hard to see where I'm clicking. Nice try though!

Sorry, I don't like the santa pointer or the snowflakes (distracting), but I especially don't like the flashing lights - I avoid flashing lights of all sorts because they can trigger my migraine flashing light aura. Bye bye.

They're not exactly fairy lights are they haha. Also you'll have all the gamers doing a compulsory count of each colour like in the games :0

I like the festive lights! Ixnay on the cursor - snowflakes are cool now that they don't float over the games.

It's a no from me Loki. Like the Christmas sentiment, but this style is a bit old school, flashing lights are annoying would be better with just a static tinsle. Cursor annoying as you need to follow small arrow, not santa head. Snowflakes ok. But I do like the sentiment, I am sure we will have a lot of Christmas games posted...Merry Christmas.

I like the snow flakes and I think the santa curser is super cute! The lights... umm, not so much!

Your wish is my command. :)

Decorations

I liked the cursor - made me smile. And yes, I like the bells much better than the flashing lights. It's nice to see some Christmas spirit. You are working hard to make this a better site, asking for feedback and, lol, actually listening to it. And I appreciate that, appreciate your efforts on our behalf.

thanks! I also want a million dollars for Christmas :)

aww, now the santa curser is gone :(

taking the santa cursor off was the right decision - now there is something new wrong: sometimes the click on the "play ...(that game)" row doesn´t open a new tab

Hi guys, ok reading the feedback, here are some answers. I might be able to manage a million Monopoly dollars, but that's probably not what you were hoping for. The Santa cursor, sorry to those who liked it but the majority of players did point out (if you excuse the pun) that as a working cursor, it wasn't great. I may find a better one, I'm certainly going to look! The flashing lights, I tried to resize them, nice and small but the flashing was a distraction and it slowed the loading of the site so, in came the bells. Helmut, what game is not opening to a new page, with 5 people posting games now, we need to know what game a flaw has. Trying each post is too time consuming when there are so many things to put in place.....Keep telling us what you like/dislike and we'll keep trying to make things better. Cheers guys.

And now I have an elegant Christmas tree cursor)))

play with cursor reminds me of old days with various viruses and where there were bad things on an internet site

I find the games on other pages now

I add the HTML code etc. myself, there are no viruses. I would never let that happen. The Play links we use have no Xmas cursor added. SLS, I struggle to keep you happy, when you say, "It's my cursor. Leave it alone!", do you mean you don't want a Christmas theme at all? I need more information to try to fix issues.

Thank you Loki. Christmas tree cursor is much better with my laptop. The pointer is more pronounced so I don't have trouble seeing what I'm about to click on.

Merry Christmas!

First Santa, now the tree and maybe next : RUDOLPH ??????
Thanks Loki ; you have given me a big smile again !

Is there any way to filter out the mobile games? I like that you note them as mobile, but it would be lovely to not have to scroll past so very many when I'm looking for browser games.

(fwiw, the Christmas themes never bothered me, although I was mighty confused the first time I encountered them. Looks like the bells and Christmas tree cursor are a nice resolution to the issues others were having though.)

Yes Unknown, we are working on a tab for Web only games and Mobile games......watch the navigation bar for new tabs.

Rudolph.....it might just happen ;)

Could you possibly give us the option of turning the decorations/cursor off? I know it is meant to be uplifting and all, but to me it just screams "tacky and outdated". No offense of course, we all have different tastes, and I understand that some folks love it and don't want them to be deprived of it if it is working for them. So having it as an opt-in alternative would be awesome!

I just realized that I was asking for both the option to turn them off AND the option to turn them on. Sorry for the confusion. Having it be an opt-in choice is always the better design from a coding standpoint.

And now I'm singing ( just softly) on my own :

All I want for Christmas is : ....... RUDOLPH !

please STOP THE SNOWFLAKES!!!!!

Please, no fancy cursor or falling snowflakes. They're slowing things down and freezing the page.

Let me see if I can find a way to have a 'switch off Xmas' button.....I'm not promising, but I'll try.

The Christmas stuff is playing havoc with Edge. Freezing on all tabs.

Hi Rumi, I tested this on Edge (and even on IE!) and it was ok for me. I am trying to find a way to disable the Xmas stuff with a button, not making great progress to be honest but I'll keep trying. Do you only use Edge?

Still there, huh? Guess I'll check back in January.

I love the snowflakes and love the Christmas tree curser, but I liked the santa curser better... I am have no problems with the holiday bling bogging down anything.

I totally love the snowflakes and the emoji on the cursor - very festive!!!

[Claps hands]..........little snowflakes!

I live in Australia - have never had a white Christmas ever - Christmas means hot summer to us ....and BBQ's- days at the beach ....but snow is traditionally a symbol of Christmas - in another 3 weeks Christmas will be gone, and so will the snowflakes .... so why can't we just go with the flow and stop getting our knickers in a knot over a bit of fun.

My pointer is back to normal (although the xmas tree did not much bother me) and gentle snow is falling. What I really like is the activity on this site with the new pro-active team. Loki is trying new things - some may work, others may not, but how do you know without trying? Congratulations to the new team for making a wonderful site into a discussion area to make what is great gaming (play the games you want and just ignore others) even better than it was before. I thing you are doing a great job!!! Thank you for your dedication to our fun

I completely agree with Fudge! Really appreciate all the hard work the admins are putting into maintaining and improving this site. Love the little changes and creativity. The snowflakes are awesome too :) I can't wait for the live chat to make a comeback!

ISSUES WITH THE SITE

The issue I have since yesterday is when I uae IE, I can not do anything in the pages: no links, unable to select anything, it's just like the page is a single background picture. Only way to select something is by cycling through the items with the TAB key and pressing ENTER.

I only see this behaviour in EG24, any other site works normally.

Yesterday the site was also freezing as I tried to scroll, but for today that seems to be corrected.

Even tried to uee compatibility mode, but I see no difference.

Everything works normal in FF,

Other than that, this is a great place to play. Keep up the excellent work.

Hi guys. I need to examine issues that have been described here (and I rely on the feedback) so, I went searching and found an old laptop. It runs Win7 and I removed a RAM card to bring it down to 2Gb. True, the cursor did become difficult to use on such a small screen but the light snow did not cause any problems. I didn't test alterations in IE as when I look at our stats, the amount of players still using IE is so small (<0.5% on a good day) and IE is a dead browser. The feedback, in general, is very positive and the negative feedback is coming prom personal points of view and from "my computer doesn't like it". I'll keep trying to improve the site but, I'm going to do things that not everybody likes, wants or uses. Just bear with us while we build a team to handle different aspects of EG24, please. Thanks.

Hi Helmut, what method did you use?

Ditto with Fudge and Black FireSong above regarding the new pro-active team! Talk about listening (read: hearing) our concerns and issues! If it were possible, I would give both of them a thumbs up...and to the new team - five thumbs up!

PS...I like the holiday decorations - all of them!

Main page all screwed up. If refreshed, it's essentially blank. Using Chrome as always. Just an FYI.

Hi Dee, in what way is it screwed up? It looks the same to me and I've had no other reports of problems. Take a screenshot if you can please, I need to know of possible issues that others might not report. Thanks

Hi all, I haven’t been on in a some months and came back to all kinds of new stuff. Yay. Thanks to the creators for all you do!
And wow, people are still picking on Dazz? Geez...

hey Loki\Alpha..
can ya speak G4K and others related to em and get that little flash pop up lower right removed? It obscures invent scroll and turn arrows..

Im not registering there...

I hadn't read this string for more than a month now. Nearing 200 comments, wow! However. So many different and conflicting opinions, so many opinionated people, so many negative comments contradicting one another, so few marks of appreciation. Will anybody take heed of the wise comments made for instance by Zoe, and by others, and simply appreciate the luck we have of being able to enjoy this site, and everything it has to offer (whatever minor issues might be perceived by some), thanks to the dedication of a few good-willed people whose task we would never be willing to volunteer for? And while I'm at it, as for Esmerelda Pumphandle and the likes of you, I suggest you follow the path of that heinous Heww, or whatever his/her nickname was, and find other sites which will better suit your demands. In this specific context, shouldn't the motto be: 'be and let be'? My bit, anymay.

Hi guys, responding to Leroy and Jay-Jay, Leroy, I don't fully understand what you mean so if you could add as much detail as possible, we would appreciate it and possibly fix the issue. Jay-Jay, this is for people to speak their mind. I love that you appreciate us, I love that a lot of people appreciate what we are doing and trying to do to make the site even better than ever, not everyone will agree with us....that, sadly, is that. If we do something wrong, we need to hear about it, that is important to us so don't hold back, tell us we suck, but make sure you tell us why we suck! (If you want to tell us we are cooler than ICE COLD, I won't condemn you for it ;)

maybe only me? just open a games4kings game and look lower right.. you should see invent arrow and turn arrow covered..

Hi Leroy, Try reducing the screen size to see if this fixes the issue. This is the first of this I have heard. (Hold CTRL and press the - button, or + to go bigger for those new to keyboard shortcuts). I hope this is the only issue, thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Jonderson (interesting name) People are allowed to comment with their thoughts here and I have never seen any comments from Jay-Jay or Zoe (an eg24 staff member!) to be any of the things you say. I really hate to say this but I feel you are personally attacking 2 people here. Jay-Jay has given good feedback and Zoe is in training becoming an author and she has already posted a game here. Please, for the sake of harmony, keep a level head....if you disagree with a comment, contact me. I did receive an email from you but as my name is Jon Anderson and you are using Jonderson, I thought it was a joke email......feel free to email me at any time, or any eg24 staff member, with any issues you have and we will try to resolve them.

Hi Loki, did you see Jay-Jay comment yesterday, why worry about people putting not nice comments (not Jay-Jay) others, it's just normal variety of people, you never know what kind of probs they may have, just be kind to them, even Hew

Snow fall was heavier earlier today but has eased off a bit now :-) (I'm allowed to talk about the weather as I am English)

Hi Joycy, I didn't, I really don't have the time to watch all comments but I've never known Jay-Jay to be abusive. As always, Contact Us is easy now we have lots of different methods of doing so. Any problems, tell us, we will act as best we can.

Jonderson: Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry that you feel this way.
I will ponder your words. Thank you.

Hi Loki I wasn't complaining, I was responding to your previous comment & I just added an opinion

I appreciate that Joycy, I know you weren't complaining. Feedback is key so keep it coming.

This column is reminding me of the chat box section we used to have....except it's not instant replying.
I like it!

Well, well, well. This is new. I couldn't tell you when I was last on this site. I've been here in various guises since it's inception, but gave up a few months ago. There were a few reasons for that. Firstly I felt the games quality had went really downhill, and secondly there were a few people who really spoiled this site for me. I hasten to add that they were probably ok people in real life, but carrying out romances and having pics added to games was just a bit too much for me personally.
But it's not all bad, I've had a quick peek at the front page and credit where credit is due, the quality of games seems to have improved. I'm well aware we get these for free and kudos to the devs and all involved but in order for me to spend some of my spare time coming here? I'm not going to do that for crappy time wasting games which are probably only made to make money from advertising.

Anyway, all the best for the new set up and I might even put this site back in my bookmarks.
