  11. Hello Community and Welcome, The hearts community is a friendly gaming community with an established rules set by people and chat services that all players must follow. If you ever run into someone who is harassing people or otherwise being disruptive, you might take one or more of the following steps. In the game or chat room : First, look for a Plus Member who can document the problem and take immediate action. A Plus Member is designated by a "+" before their ID. You can also "ignore" a player, which prevents you from receiving any of their chat messages while you are in the present chat or game room session. To ignore a player, click on their Member ID in the list of players in the room and then click Ignore in the box that comes up. (After you leave the chat or game room, you are no longer set to ignore that person; therefore, if you find yourself in the same room with the person again, you'll have to take this step again to ignore them.) If a Plus Member is not available, note the player's Member ID, which game room you encountered the person in, and the time the problem occurred, and then describe the problem in an e-mail to the webmaster. Make sure you include your Member ID and any chat logs or other proof of the incident. You can avoid disruptive players by building a network of friends and inviting them into private games. At a game matchmaking square or table : If you are hosting a game and have problems with a player who has joined your table or matchmaking square, you can ask the player to leave before you launch the game. If the disruptive player refuses to leave, start a new game at another table or square. In free card and board games, you can turn off the "kibitizing" option to prevent other players from viewing your game. If you just want to ignore kibitizers' chat messages, select Silence from the Options button in the game. This prevents kibitzers from sending chat messages. You can also remove all kibitzers: If any player turns off the option to permit kibitzing, all kibitzers will be shut out of the game. If an opponent becomes disruptive during a game or does not play by the agreed-upon rules (for instance, kills their own teammates), simply quit and start a new game. Or you can either boot them from your game room if the option is available or "remove" them if you're playing a free card or board game. In a tournament or ladder : Contact the tournament director and report the tournament issues. Contact the ladder sponsor. Note : Within games themselves, players are responsible for their own environment. Plus Members are not available to monitor games. Turn Off or Limit Your Messages To prevent people from seeing you online and sending you Messages: Right-click your Message icon (the "Z") on your taskbar and select Open . In the Friends window that appears, click Options from the menu bar, select Privacy and select No one can see me when I'm online . Click Apply and click OK . To allow Messages between only you and your friends: Right-click your Message icon (the "Z") on your taskbar and select Open . In the Friends window that appears, click Options from the menu bar, select Privacy and select Only Friends can see me when I'm online. Click Apply and click OK . Now only your friends currently in your Friends list will be able to send messages to you or reply to ones you send. Note : The next time you enter the community after having left and closed your Web browser, Message will be turned on by default. It's only a game : Don't let a few immature people spoil your fun. Just remember it's only a game. Hearts is a great community, and there are many fun-filled games to be played, challenges to be solved, and new friends to be found.

They will attempt to solve any related technical difficulties you may be experiencing. If you have a hearts-specific technical issues. Please read the terms and conditions below before using support section. Help and Technical Help Chat Rules Please keep in mind the support section is not staffed 24 hours per day. It may be necessary for plus members on duty to handle situations outside the support section. Technical questions may require research time. Therefore, not all situations can be handled immediately. If the plus member or guests are not speaking, or you don't get an immediate response to your question, it probably means they are handling situations outside or searching for the appropriate answers to other questions, using all available resources. Sending Messages and posting "Did you hear me?" are unnecessary distractions. We will try to accommodate your questions / complaints in order; however, the waiting and asking queues are managed at the plus member discretion. The plus member reserves the right to answer questions by anyone in the waiting queue in any order, as well as the right to move you out of the asking queue if necessary. Please wait your turn and refrain from Messaging for immediate attention. Message is a helpful tool when used properly, but unnecessary requests take attention away from the problem being worked on and could result in a longer delay. The primary duty of plus members is helping make people and chat community a safe and fun place for it's members. They are not obligated to handle help or technical questions. Plus members of the @Tech team are not people and chat personnel and are not in a position to alter policies. They may choose to forward your comments and suggestions on to the people and chat team, but they are not empowered to make changes in the operations of people and chat services. They cannot remove incompletes from your rating, they can't change your rating, and they can't move heaven and earth. If you break any of these rules, you may forfeit your place in the queue, and your status may change to Watching mode only.

  16. By Joe Andrews Joe Andrews is the author of the book Win At Hearts, published 1998. The term "Endgame" is borrowed from the game of Chess. It indicates the stage of play when most of the pieces have been exchanged, and the board is relatively clear. In Hearts, the "Endgame" is in reference to the stage of a hand in which each player holds six or fewer cards. Often, there is a critical point where the outcome will be decided by one key play. Let us examine the seemingly simple situation below: Immaterial West Void 4 3 Void 5 3 Immaterial South Q 10 A 2 Void Void Hearts have been distributed evenly, and there is no threat of a "Moon." East and North cannot obtain the lead, have made discards on a previous lead of Hearts, and they both hold all of the low Diamonds. There are four Hearts remaining, as well as two top Spades. West's clubs are safe, but are winners. Finally, South is on lead.The question for South is this: "Are the two remaining Hearts located in the same hand, or are they divided between two hands?" Note that the Ace of Hearts is the master card, and the deuce is the control or bottom card. Here is South's dilemma. If the Ace is led, and the Four and Three are separated, they will both fall under the Ace, and South will be stuck with the good deuce. This spells disaster, as there is no way to escape the Spade Queen! On the other side of the coin, if the two outstanding Hearts are to get her, (in the same hand), and the Ace is played, the deuce will now become an escape card, and will provide perfect passage for South to relinquish the lead.How can South be sure which way to play? In most cases, he would simply guess, and perhaps look to the Heavens for Divine Guidance. Here, he has an additional chance. The lead of the "good" Ten of Spades may be lure a player (West in this case) into unloading one of his Hearts. Now South will have an accurate count on the suit, and his control (two) bails him out of the hand. Of course, West may choose to play coyly, and ditch one of his Clubs, and still force South to guess the Hearts. The play of the Spade Ten costs South nothing, and may save him some grief. Obviously, if the Spade Queen is another hand, South must make his Heart decision on the spot!Although seemingly basic, this situation occurs relatively often. It is so important to remember the "spot" cards in all suits, and to be aware of the discards by the opponents. Possession of a safe Spade Queen in the hand is reassuring, but not necessarily a guarantee of success. Seasoned opponents will make life very miserable for you. There are times when you have to be lucky and make your own "breaks!"

  24. Do not expect direct answers from staff or volunteers. Remember, this site is managed by volunteers. They, along with many experienced members, are here to help you. The people and chat development team has staff assigned to review our messageboards and problem reports on a regular basis, but they will not answer your questions here. You are certainly welcome to express your dissatisfaction with any part of people and chat service, but we will not tolerate lewd or or obscene language, spamming, inappropriate links, or duplicate postings. If you feel the need to criticize people and chat and/or the collabs, please do it in a constructive manner.

  25. Be courteous. Please treat management and other group members in a respectful manner. We have a zero- tolerance policy toward flaming. Anyone participating in this bad behavior, even if you are defending yourself, will be banned from the group. As is the case for all collabs, we must abide by Terms of Use and Chatting Guidelines. If you are unfamiliar with them, please review them before posting. Links are provided at the bottom of this page.
  26. Use the proper message board. All questions should be posted on the General board. Please note, however, that management will not answer questions about message deletions, bannings, or other group management issues on the message boards. You are welcome to address those issues in an e-mail to the management, but be sure to include your return email address. The Tips and Tricks board is not to be used for posting questions. You may certainly ask questions about posted items in the original discussions, but do not start start a new discussion unless you are posting a new tip for other members.

Collab promotion messages posted on other boards will be deleted without comment. The Off Topic board is for socializing. Controversial subject matter is prohibited because it can distract from the basic purpose of Community Feedback. Community rules apply. The Wish Board is for sharing features you would like to see in Collabs.
  27. Be specific. The subject line of your message is the most important part of the thread. Be sure to clearly identify the area/feature in the subject title. It helps those assisting you to find your thread again once any research has been completed; it helps others with similar problems find the thread; and it can help months later when someone wants to refer another member with the same problem.
