Am I the only one who doesn't like the new format?

I think we are all pretty much in agreement that we don't care for the new format (this has been discussed here before). I created an icon on my desktop such that double-clicking it takes me directly to the Big Fish page for PC games. That way I am only looking at it the way it was before.

Yes, mine goes straight to the old page also. I forgot about the new page.

Hi Marian, How do you create the icon for your desktop? Thanks. wavegirl

TLC, it depends upon which web browser you have. I am using Firefox.

Thanks everyone!

Here i go again about BF.

Currently it appears BF doesn't have the CE's every Thurs and Sat. I wish the new owners would pay attention to customer's comments. I. for one, am tempted to quit them. My credits are building up as
i can't find anything I like.


How about a petition?

Laurette, what BF has mainly been doing in the last year or so is to release a HOPA CE on Thursday and a time management CE on Saturday. Not sure what gave you the idea that they aren't releasing CEs anymore as there have been two a week almost every week since the year began, which is the same as it has always been. Having said that, there are more time management CEs than there used to be because BF has lost many HOPA developers in the last two to three years (HOPAs cost more money to make and many mobile games are making bigger profits so they are focusing on that) and the developers that remain can't make them fast enough to sustain a release schedule of two HOPA CEs a week. This is why they have been diminishing. BF can't just pull rabbits out of its hat in terms of getting more HOPA developers immediately. If that were to happen, it is something that would happen over time. Meanwhile, there are lots of fans of time management games and ample numbers of those are being made to support one time management CE per week on average.

So, they are still releasing two CEs a week most weeks like they always have, but in general only one of them each week is a HOPA. I believe that BF is well aware that there are customers who want more HOPA CEs. I think that is also why we have had two remastered HOPAs in the past year (with more to come, I believe) in an attempt to have a few more new ones available here and there.

By all means, write to Big Fish and tell them how you feel, or start a petition. I am just explaining that I think they are aware of how at least a portion of their customer base feels about what is happening (HOPA fans are very vocal about this on the BF Facebook group, and people from the company read these posts) and I don't think there are any easy solutions to this.
