Yahoo! Rooms Dilemma

Yahoo! had the following announcements:

  • For over 15 years, Yahoo offered a set of classic multi-player board and parlor games for you to enjoy. Yahoo Games deeply appreciates the passion and dedication you've shown in that time. As of March 31, 2014, the existing Parlor Games and related League pages were closed while we transition to a newer technology platform that will provide a better, more consistent gaming experience.
  • The Yahoo Games All-Stars League service is being phased out. While the service will continue to be available to users who have already subscribed, we will not be accepting additional subscriptions. Please stay tuned for additional information, as we plan to provide a modern, best-in-class multiplayer gaming experience for Yahoo users. Thanks for being a Yahoo gamer!

Our Systems Team were very active in resolving the problems caused by this unwise move by Yahoo!

  • Used the Yahoo! UK Server to replace the old Server Room Links in all Leagues, and now it is working until further notice.
  • Updated all the Backdoors.to Links to reflect the above Yahoo! UK Server Rooms Links.
  • Updated the Alternate Rooms for All Yahoo! Leagues; we recommend the use of Pogo Rooms, and in case the Game is Club Pogo restricted; like Gin or Canasta, we have placed GameColony Links as Alternate Links.
  • We are also investigating other Play Sites options in case this Yahoo situation deteriorates further.
  • We have added a GameColony Banner on all Pages Menus as a first step to offer Alternative Play Site to Yahoo! GameColony is offering these Multi-player Games:
Gin Rummy
Please visit the GameColony site using the GameColony Banner; and Register your Eliters ID at GameColony; then check the Game.
Players will need to Register their UserName (Eliters ID) in GameColony using the GameColony Banner before entering the Room.
If the Eliters ID is not available in GameColony; Players may use the nearest ID to their Eliters ID and state that on the Tourney EM.
  • The next step could be reinstating GameColony and GameDesire Leagues; If you are interested in reviving any of these Leagues; please post a Message in Eliters Clubs.
The Systems Team is working on a Master Members UserNames with Different IDs for Different Play Sites. This might take sometime to install; so the same Name Rule will continue to apply until further notice.
