Why can’t HSN STOP the cheating????
18 minutes into a new day and how is it that someone can have 16k points, 130k for the week and there are numerous people doing it???? I’ve asked this question before on Publishers Clearing House games and it’s a shame that people have devices set up to run the games and cheat.
STOP THE CHEATERS HSN – IT’S NOT FARE FOR US EVERYDAY PEOPLE, WHO WORK HARD AT A LIVING, RAISING A FAMILY AND TRY TO GET A GOOD DEAL ON HSN.
I’ve read where we’ve had multiple people using multiple devices under one user name. Why can’t HSN filter out in program so that the program allows only one person at a time on line to be using the user name? Anything is possible and I’m sure it could be done. Then the game field would be leveled for you and the rest of us.
i now love the fact that all who play the puzzle has a fair chance of winning!!!!! as of april 2014 those who play no matter the score will be randomly drawn for a PRIZE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so good luck to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
True, the current ‘manipulation’ of the system is Not fair to those who are legitimately able to put up high scores and often so do.
The idea of a limited number of entries within any set period is not a unique idea. It is however, a good idea. Many or most contests and drawings have entry restrictions and limitations. Entry limits would not or should not affect Playing Time. It seems to me that players should be allowed to Play as much and as fast as they wish.
* I agree that although a thoughtful act, there was no need for any fellow member or arcade player to rush into the forum to apologize or to be cleared. No one was or is accused of anything. There was nothing to be cleared of. If we can clear each other, then we can accuse or condemn each other.
h2u999–the person who admitted to being under the said glitch was NOT frantic, nor running into here in a frantic fear—FEAR ??? Why fear an arcade….That whole scene was not at all needed in public.
Adults who still wish for adoration ,and approval is simply the more frightning of the 2-
I say to the honest person who owned it , NEVER let anyone describe you as running in here and apologising, THIS IS NOT A PHYSICAL HALLWAY—as some seem to think, yet they probably sweep it as well.
Where did the fun go ????? hq999 I agree with you , take this arcade back to the original criteria for one month and maybe then it will not be a place of always contacting the arcade team, over and over.
OUR MANAGERS ARE MUCH TO BUSY TO BE DIRECTING THESE POST OVER AND AGAIN TO THE ARCADE TEAM, SECOND WHY DONT THEY SEND THEIR TOP GUY IN TO THIS ARENA AND MAKE AN OFFICIAL APOLOGIE FOE MORE THAN A FEW GLITCHES- BB
HSN PLEASE CONTACT YOUR Arcade group and ask them to create a NEW GAME,call it-
LOCATE,CAPTURE,AND CONVICT THE CHEATER—-also allow prizes like 1000.00 gift cards, AS WELL AS TRIPS TO THE CIRCUS—-HONESTLY IT WOULD FLY—yes locate the cheater.
i would really love to hear what the top people of HSN have to say about the same ones winning constantly every week on the puzzle. yes i keep tabs and yes their have been the same ones winning over and over week after week month after month. i believe HSN needs to go back that you can win only once every 6 months at least that is what i was told bt mgmt. so i really would like to know how uper mgmt. handles all this complaining. has anyone heard a remedy from them?
BB I love reading what you write you are very funny. :womanhappy:
Let me ask before continuing with posting here so as not to get in trouble—IS CHAMPAGNE a form of alcohol ????????????? EXCUSE ME—CHAMPAGNE IS POSTED OVER AND OVER HERE.
I ASK TO BE TREATED FAIR AND NOT HAVE A FRIENDLY POST REPREMANDED-
I AM NOT A DRINKER – So to defend my original post that is removed I ask that the moderators scour these post and remove CHAMPAGNE as well- I was BONDING WITH A FRIENDSHIP THAT COULD HAVE BEEN and helped mend a few that were off track
I do not condone drinking or smoking yet am not against either- YET WHEN MY NAME IS TAKEN AND REPREMANDED ON A FORUM OVER DRINKING —LOOK AROUND AT THE PHOTOS, AND OTHER POST ADVERTISING THE CHAMPAGNE BOTTLE AND PROMOTING IT-
Just a thought for those who think that clearing the leaderboard is a solution: If they don’t find a way to prevent what has already happened, clearing the leaderboard isn’t going to do anything except lower everyone back to 0. Those who have unrealistic totals now will just continue making new whopping totals while those who have earned their tickets honestly will lose all their hard earned efforts.
A old country song for all them there so called poor souls being called cheaters. " Your Cheating Heart"
Of Course there has been some form of Cheating and Of Course HSN will do something about it.
Who cheats? … I don’t know and I’ve not attempted to accuse anyone. I leave that to HSN. The subject of Cheating has been mentioned many times in the past. I never paid much attention to it because I decided to limit my arcade involvement Because of obvious Cheating practices. Since the topic keeps coming up, I Choose to address it. Regardless of any benefit or non benefit, it is Wrong. HSN will remedy it because it would be the Right thing to do and because HSN is no respector of person. They do not place higher value on the qualms of some, than on the opinions and fairness of others.
MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN AROUND THE ARCADE FOR MANY YEARS-
This excuse is basicly silly as WHO wants to admit to years of playing the same old game for many years and still not SURE WHAT IS GOING ON-
YES HSN WILL DO SOMETHING- Who could truly post that HSN will not do something ?
MONEY INVOLVED—-YOU BET—I spent —- — 4 times of several HSN items I viewed in the online watch as I played–as well as several items in the rewards store- SO YES MONEY IN INVOLVED.
What really confuses the HSN forum, are fellow posters who still show written DOUBT- about the arcade, yet still play—-I am really amazed at anyone can IN ONE POST DEFENDE–AND IN A SECOND POST TARE DOWN THE WHOLE ARCADE-
Money is involved, and to set here and post such scorching know it all things with just 3 years .I have been with HSN from the first day we went online- I have spent alot of money, and enjoyed the ARCADE with tickets earned and special offers that allowed me to PURCHASE HSN’S GREAT ITEMS-
As for the LEADER BOARD ????? Please ADULTS ? EVERYTHING IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
OUR COMPLAINTS WILL NOT FALL ON DEAF EARS—–When the NEW YEAR is a few days ripe this is all going to change-
As for as anyone accusing anyone of anything IT IS A SHAME—–Again as we hope for NEW
AND EXCITED FORUM MEMBERS ,I trust this aged, stale and silly LEADER BOARD it corrected……Who can honestly enjoy a score if even they admit to NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON-
HERE IS TO CHANGE ! HERE IS TO PRAISING THE RIGHT PEOPLE, AND HERE IS TO HSN for the many years I have been a member here- BEAUTYBOY
Cheating what? Cheating who? For what? Why?
Is there money involved? No.
Can anyone prove it? NO.
Do we like it? NO.
Do we suspect something..yes. BUT what is the point? There is nothing to do about it. HSN isn’t going to do anything about it because the ONLY fair thing to do would be to wipe out the WHOLE LB…and they aren’t going to do that. TOO MANY OF US would scream. I only have 5 million tickets but I have worked hard to get those. I have spent 3 years working on those. I don’t want to lose them and start all over again.
There are no rules that say more than one person cannot play on a user name at a time. HSN Mods have verified this for me. So…that’s that.
But you cannot go around continuing to call people cheaters when you don’t have proof. You just can not.
It’s wrong, if’s a violation of guidelines, and it hurts innocent people like Own5Pets.
Those of us that have been around the Arcade for a long time, have watched and seen a lot of things when it comes to tickets getting racked up. But how it’s been done, we cannot prove. We have a good idea…but we cannot prove it. We have experimented to recreate what we THINK is being done..but that is NOT proof. We do not know everyone’s circumstances, why they play like they do…or anything else.
This needs to stop and stop now. I understand what SuziQ was getting at when she started this…and I feel the frustration. And I appreciate her coming back in tonight to explain where she is coming from. But this is not helping and getting everyone no where.
This is the way it is…it’s an Arcade on a shopping site that HSN doesn’t even have to supply for us. If it’s taken this seriously, then maybe we need to find something else to do with our time. It’s suppose to be fun.
Calling people cheaters is not fun. For anyone.
Some time ago when I first played in the arcade, I noticed outrageous scores that Had to be the result of some kind of Cheating. Make no mistake about it, the cheating is widespread among a few. It is a dirty little secret that Ain’t so secret. I recognize Cheating when I see cheating – and This is Cheating.
People are getting all over me, yet I was not the only one seeing what was going on. I’ve seen it before and on different sites. That is also why when you read the rules to sweepstakes, they give all of the don’ts of using bots etc.– which I wouldn’t know how people do it. I ‘m just a normal everyday mom who plays on these games here and there and know there is no human way possible to get these scores by using your fingers. — I’ve been on sites where you have to match things etc., it could take me 36 sec., 1min etc. where others do it in 3 seconds and lower.*** I’ve asked different big companies and they responded with, people have special devices and know how to cheat the system.*** If I called anyone out, it was clear as day, so EVERYONE COULD SEE IT AND OTHERS DID POST THE SAME THING. Shame on HSN for not taking it down; they should have someone monitoring it all the time, just like a bank monitoring bank accounts etc. I don’t want to read all of the other forums, I just said what I said because others were also and I just copied and pasted what was there for ALL players to see. Why people are yelling at me, they are the one’s being the bullies? I was just pissed because I work hard for our earnings and I’m just trying to have a little fun with the chance of winning something. People take it too serious but no matter what, I don’t like cheaters, stealers and liars and it does not display a person’s identity anyway so HSN should appologize if they haven’t already beacause this isn’t the only time I have seen crazy numbers, usually I could care less but you just get tired of it along with the social media bashing. — They should be ontop of things, HSN is an amazing company and I’m sure they have plenty of security implemented in all areas so someone had to be watching and they could have taken it down. It goes down when they are updating the system. NO harm — names weren’t displayed, that is why we make up user names and again it was clear as day up on the screen. Some of you are taking way to serious, like I’m at fault… really! You can’t get more honest than me. I voiced just like people voice about the good and bad of their purchases, etc. — So sorry, but I called it like others were. So let’s all start the year off right, and may we all have fun and win something and find great items on HSN. Happy New Year! 🙂
