  February Tight Finish
Posted by: - 02-22-2024, 02:04 PM - Forum: Raptor League - No Replies

Tight Finish For February

John O is well-placed to defend his January Golden Eagle title with 27 points and an outstanding match. But that match is with Paul C (8 X winner in 2023) who has 24 points and who could, therefore, snatch the title with a dominant win. Pete D can spoil the party, as he also has 27 points and a match in hand against struggling Jeremy P. Finally, Simba, on 22, could also steal the show with two matches to go, against the two lowest-placed Eagles this month.

The bookies are nervous.

  Southwest Airlines Wifi Issue
Posted by: - 02-19-2024, 02:12 PM - Forum: General - Replies (3)

Just thought you might want to know that Southwest Airlines seems to have a new WIFI internet provider for their flights. Viasat.

The problem with this is that I can no longer access SimplyBG while in the air. That didn't used to be the case and it is NOT the case with American Airlines.

Would it be possible to add a performance rating in the stats?

  Prime Playing Times
Posted by: - 01-29-2024, 10:57 PM - Forum: Single Sitting Competition - No Replies

The Single Sitting Challenges work best when multiple contestants can play simultaneously.

The Single Sitting Challenges will run regularly and exclusively once a week starting and ending 30 hours on Saturdays.

The Prime Time for these competitions is once a week from 7 am GMT on Saturday running until 1 pm GMT on Sunday. (11 pm PST Friday running until 5 am PST Sunday). (9 pm EST Friday until 2 am EST Sunday).  In a nutshell, all day Saturday.

Let us know if another day of the week would be the most likely you would have time to play.  This is not a request for a 30-hour commitment. I'm just looking for the best Prime Time playing slots in the week.

During Prime playing time, an audio and optional video meetup will be available.  You can listen in or participate in the conversation or chat.  This is a chance to get to meet your opponents.

Also during Prime playing time some of the bonus points are increased. For example, the "take a seat" bonus is tripled during the prime playing times.

Come and participate in the challenges, Take a Seat, and wait for an opponent to challenge you.

  The images in the background make it hard for me to see.
Posted by: - 01-20-2024, 01:40 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

The images in the background make it hard for me to see.  I found a setting in the dashboard to disable the images by choosing a solid color for the background instead.

The link to the dashboard for this setting is: https://www.simplybg.com/dashboard/settings-site

From there, select a color and the background images will no longer appear.

  A thought about the various background images shown on the site.

I propose that we have an option to choose from various backgrounds for openplay parlor. Possibly an option to create your own background Idea Big Grin

  A Question on Board Orientation
Posted by: - 01-14-2024, 05:45 PM - Forum: Trish's Corner - Replies (1)

I prefer the orientation of my board to have the Home board in the top-left corner.
Therefore, I have set my preference using the Dashboard Preferences setting page.

  backgammon board fit the screen question
Posted by: - 12-28-2023, 02:58 AM - Forum: General - Replies (2)

Is there a way to make the backgammon board fit the screen,

so it is at least as big as an IPAD or an HP?
