Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

Hi kids and faux-kids. Lots going on as usual. We've been busier than ever bringing your toadally awesome suggestions to life. We also get lots of comments about how we should be focusing on our games more than our integrated happy fun-time social networking and super-sweet prizes. Ask and ye shall receive! Great games will always be what we are about, and the input you've given us over the past six years will come shining through over the coming months. We've been engineering some hot new tournament and skill games, and are performing enhancements to our classic games that are leaps and bounds (but mostly "leaps") above anything you've ever played online.

Following our last blog entry, someone suggested we allow players to leave messages on games pages. Awesome idea! Done and done. Leave your mark and your comments. Cool. We also get lots of comments about a "pause" feature. OK. You've got that, too. Of course, not all games will allow you to make time stand still. That wouldn't make sense in the games were time is the essence of the game, right? Still, it will be nice to be able to answer the phone in the middle of an intense game of Snake Fish.

And what about this whole social thing? This won't be just another stale, hard to navigate online "forum", you know. Nope. No matter what you find yourself doing at ToadGames, your best buddies are always just a click away, Express yourself and be seen and heard! You don't have to listen to anyone you don't want to, either. It's all about what you want at the new and improved ToadGames.com.

Keep the comments coming and hang on for the coolest pond on the planet.

Ohhhh pmsl here! "Are we there yet are we there yet!" I spent my entire childhood (and..my mom and dad can confirm this) saying those exact same words in the back of a Z-28! (talk about being cramped)lol I think I started asking that question about 2 blocks away from home and then told them I had to use the bathroom about 3 blocks away.

I'm looking forward to all of it and thank you for the monthly updates. I read about the anonymous person who couldn't get into the forum in the last post and...

I do know you have to re-enter your original "number password" that you got from the first time you registered with Toadgames into the forum at the top even tho it looks like it's already in there. I've heard a few people say they couldn't get in so I hope this helps. If you don't remember the original password I would suggest asking for it to be e-mailed to you. It would be so nice for more people to join in on the forum fun.

I can't wait to use my "pause buttons" wherever they may be. Ty for that.

I also can't wait to leave a note to keh444 who's always kicking my butt in wrecked angles! I have always wanted to say to them soooo many times wtg! I love the competition! "Clucky" is kickin my butt this week so wtg clucky if you read this!

Whoo hoo, a message bar for each game. Leaving a message for that person who is always kicking your butt in a game (as long as it is a friendly message) is what I was thinking when I asked about it. Not everyone who play games go to the forum, so being able to say something "like well" done, or "I'll catch you next week" at the actual game where they should see it is a great idea.
