If you are going to email either syd, Jenny100 or Inferno about a specific problem pretty, pretty please make sure that you put Gameboomers in the subject line along with The Title of the Game and Subject of the problem. :kiss: This way we can have it sent to a specific folder in our email programs and not worry that it may be accidently deleted.

Like Jenny over at "Game Hints" we each get many, many emails a day. And we feel all are important and know that they need to be answered. This idea of Jenny's just might be the ticket.

We all here at Gameboomers pride ourselves on gamesmanship and fairplay for everyone. Many of us here,and not just the "Mods" are more than happy to help anyone with legitimate game issues 24/7, but we really do need your help and cannot do this without your cooperation.

Thanks a bunch!

As Always
