is this the beginning of the end of HSN games?
I cannot get the games to load. I keep getting a message to refresh. I have to go to games menu between each game. I have cleaned my history and caches, defragged, re-installed java and nothing works. it has been this way since new years.
I guess if we get frustrated enough, we will have find another way to amuse ourselves? I really like these games here, when they work.
I asked santa to make this site work for xmas…I meant from then on? lol
We keep holding on
I agree the games just went south, it use to be fun, when QVC came, then it was pretty much over, soon it will be. but we keep hanging in there hoping it will get good again. The prizes are small now, not as fun anymore. The prizes are like left overs from sales.
I changed some privacy settings and now the games are working again.
and I found another free online gaming site with the same games and they work wonderfully!
I would not have a clue about even where to find ‘privacy settings’.
The games aren’t loading for me today. There’s a large white blank area where the game should be. I’ve had no problems in the past, this started just today.
Right now the games are working just fine for me.
The games run on Flash though and Flash is being phased out. After this year it will not exist anymore. I’ve seen no talk of HSN working to reprogram the games or come up with new ones so I have to assume after this year the Arcade will not exist at all.
The “beginning of the end” started well over a year ago.
The newer regular jigsaw puzzles have presented problems from day one. For one thing, it has never issued tickets. I have addressed this from time to time, but never drew an answer from the mods.
The game SCORE usually incorporates an ad that can be “skipped” in x seconds. Meanwhile, the clock ticks against the player. This has not been fixed either. One poster told me to get Ad Blocker. When trying to install Ad Blocker, the warning came up that it could cause a virus.
So I continue to play SCORE and lose time “skipping” the ad.
And how many years has it been since we’ve had Christmas-themed games at the appropriate time?
The reCAPTCHA thing can be irritating too–especially when you have to check off traffic pictures.
We could say, oh, we’re playing for free–but not with all those other ads!
I have an ad-blocker installed to prevent ads. other than the daily special from hsn.
hsn does not like ad blocker…too bad. I am on the verge of turning off cable just to get away from commercials period. that stuff is abusive.
so, while I do not watch the ads, I did all my xmas shopping at hsn this year. never again. got some stuff from one vendor that is so horribly cheaply made and produced. not to buy though. but I felt compelled to shop with these guys? not sure why. they show me no loyalty.
I was briefly playing an old favorite the other day and I started remembering double points days and always scoring over 100 points per game. now 60 is tops. why? they are useless pointless points anyway. and 4 to 6 pages at rewards contests? I cashed in over a million points and won nothing. but at least there was a shot. now there is nothing I want and the burden of the points is confusing. still wishing I could spend them on a charity, at least or pass the points off the someone devoted to here and get out of here. there are other game sites.
or I could turn the computer off! lol
it’s so sad…
Pool just crashed on me. Last night it was Mixology. What’s a mother to do?
The games work just fine for me. If you tell me what equipment and browser you are using I will try to help you get things working.
