I just played in my first forum tourney for a while (apart from Omaha08) and as much as I tried, not one person would answer me or chat at all.

That would never be the case back in the day, we used to have some great banter which made it so much fun to play.

Oh well, suppose all I have left are memories of what used to be :(

There use to be a time where i would always try to play the forum games.
Was always a good place to catch up and chat in the games, but now there is little to no chat.
I think the chat box doesnt help matters as if you are playing on more than 2 games you cant have the chat up as it takes up to much space.

The whole forum needs a boost and a good clean up get the place buzzing again like it once was.

The forum had a recent cleanup and changes implemented within the capabilities of the platform, the sports section was improved to try to encourage those who like football etc to post more, old threads were removed and lots of other stuff was done too. We would always welcome suggestions from an old pro like you though Tony Wink

Requests have been made for a complete platform change to get in step with the constantly changing social media platforms which would make the community easier for members to interact in on a daily basis.

As for the boost, we have suggested new community games and various other ideas but as we know it has to go through the rather long 888 pipeline and get approved etc etc.

Hopefully any chipmas games will bring the usual short burst of activity and maybe this time we can keep the flow going in 2018 with some of the new ideas.

The daily activity that goes on in the background with visitors is very impressive when I look at the numbers but it's getting you all to post that seems to be the difficult bit Frown

The chatbox in the new software seems to get very little use from what I see as 1. like slim says the size is not user-friendly and 2. they removed the option to make chat active over the play option meaning that when you type in you can actually bet if your turn arrives.

I have sent in reports about this but it sadly it seems there are no plans to bring the option back.


















Will all my888poker members please ensure they have their 888poker player name in their profile.

I agree with what slim said, it's very hard to have chat open if you are in more than one game.

I open the chat when the game starts, say my hello's and wish all good luck but then I have to close again. Most times I don't know anyone at the table TBH but will still say my bit but am lucky to get anyone to respond.

Also if you notice the players of our forum games have changed, there are more non english speaking players from across europe and south america so I assume this is manly the reason for non verbal chat.

Well think you only have to look at the games in the lobby to see that 888 is basicly going to s***. The numbers in the games have to be there worst in years and the game structures and just about every game being a rebuy. Guarantees have been continuosly reduced. Software was going great guns then the last year has seen it go backwards probably one of the worst out there now. But did managment take note of any feed back? No they don't give jackshit about the players just how much they can screw out of them. Not a poker site anymore just a gambling site. hence don't really play here anymore.
WHY ARE 888 unable to sort out their server issuses.
or are there other gremlins at work?
