The "thank you" isn't a reply to the comment. It's the end of the email you receive whenever someone posts a new comment. It's:

 

Hi (your user name) 

So-and-so has posted a new comment

Copy of comment

Thank you, AARP

TOTALLY agree with the "Thank you" reply which tells us nothing.

My favorite game is Mahjongg Toy Chest and I'm so disappointed. The new version's colors are washed out and the graphics on the mahjong tiles are smaller and not as sharp as the current flash version. My vision is not impaired but if it was, I'd have a hard time seeing the tiles.

The new and improved games are "new," but not 'improved." I shall try to find my favorite games elsewhere.

I have elected to see e-mails about the members' reactions to changes. Most of these replies seem to indicate unhappiness, anger, or disappointment with the new selections. Please remember that those same emotions are signs of isolation. There are members who are either disabled or who do not have transportation to get about. Often these people rely on the computer games to pass the time and provide challenge and entertainment. Although AARP has now asked for feedback, there seems to be the status reply of:  "Thank you."  Why were members not given input? The selection of games seems childish and less challenging. The graphics are less than optimal. Many personal favorites are being discontinued, and the suggested game is nothing like the previous one.  I was also very disappointed when the Brain Games were taken away. 

 

I am displeased with the manner that all of this has been handled.

I'm very disappointed in these changes, no more Crossword Easy, Typewriter and others. Why are you eliminating so many very popular word games?

Not saying there are not a few fun games, but, I'm fairly certain there are  Match 3 Games that are a LOT more fun than most of the games we get. I know some folks wouldn't care for them,  just like I don't care for most of the originals or the new ones. Most are not "timed", but require some thought if winning is important to the player. Thank you for what you do to give us something to do that can be interesting AND fun.

I can adapt to playing different games, however my computer sounds like it it working hard. HIgh pitch, very loud - as if I have too many windows open and it is overworking and using RAM. Please advise if there is a solution. Thank you!
