Report the player to a moderator and let them handle it.
One way to deal with rude players is to play on a cell phone. That way you don’t see comments.
Honestly it’s entertaining to watch the complain and see how they think. Kinda crazy they think limping in every single hand and only betting when they have a really big hand is the “correct” way to play in their heads when pretty much any poker book or professional player will tell you otherwise. They play so face up at times you could tell them exactly what they have to their faces.
reporting someone for saying bingo player sounds pretty childish to me lol…i think some people need to toughen up in this big ol world.
You can block chat of players…some of hope we will have the option of blocking observers in the future by clicking on their name in chat. The site i use to play at had this option.
This is when you report. No need to get that upset to start cursing.
Sorry i missed the cuss word part…and it wouldn’t bother me in the least what you called me…iwould mute you.
But FYI I never play SNG tournys LOL
GL at the tables and lets hope in the near future we can mute those in the attic spectating
This happened to me last week on my first day on this site. Being told I should come back when I learn how to play poker didn’t exactly make me feel welcome, but I just ignored him and moved on.
I discovered that the guy who called me a bingo player does this routinely, and after he calls you out, he leaves, starts a new table, and
does the same thing to someone else when he doesn’t like the way they play. It’s sad that he doesn’t want to be challenged by others who don’t play the same way he does.
Stealing pots is the very best part of poker.
I’ve reported them using the Report system, but I don’t know how to show proof by sending screenshots, so putting it here.
It’s best to see what mod is working from the list of logged in mods and someone can view the table chat.
Thanks Craig, it’s not easy though while I’m trying to focus on the table. It would be beneficial to all if there was a simple option to include screenshots when using the Report Player function.
If you report a player best to put the table number and if possible the hand number (which you can see in upper left corner of the table)
With this info it is easier for Support to check out what happened.
(If you can’t note the table/hand number while playing, take the screen picture, that way you have all the info you need and can send in the complaint when your game has ended)
Thanks for the tip Tiandra, I’ll try to remember that for next time. It’s just tricky to remember to take note of hand numbers at the later stages of a tournament.
If you report using email you can attach the screenshot
I always include the tourney number, table number, appr hand and I copy and paste an example of the community guideline violation.
