They can still mute, boot and remove posts, what else does a mod need to do?

yeah Seb came from Yahoo Pool, i came from Fly or Die as couldn't get used to 3D.

Theres another site but i can't remember it, Cliffy enjoyed it when i last heard as you have a cue with weak power/spin and have to unlock stronger cues.

Has anyone actually confirmed this site is going or is it just a pure case of assumption and pure speculation due to one persons post on the availability of Java and the Plugins?

I have said before, the only time we need to be concerned about java is when ALL the browsers stop allowing/permitting plugins. Google Chrome/Opera/ have gone, there is talk about Mozilla Firefox following suit (end of the year) but as far as I'm aware Internet Explorer has made no decision on stopping.

Google Chrome/Firefox/Vivaldi (New Browser based on Google Chrome) will still be able to be used just with the use of the IE Tab. So there's no reason for this site to Die as this thread likes to put it.

Java stopping isn't even an issue either as it's common knowledge now to use Java 8 Update 31 and even Java 8 Update 101 (most recent version) work. They all will be accessible even passed their expiry dates...so IMO nothing to be concerned about.

Enjoy this site, it'll be around until Nick decides to stop the domain or every member stops using it.

Anyways I'm not Admin just thought I'd post and try clarify a few things.

IE TAB

Download Google Chrome: (Get updated version)
https://www.google.com/chrome/
Go to the Google Settings menu (Top right)

* Scroll down to Settings, Click on it.
* Then You'll have History, Extensions, Settings and About on the left hand column.
* Click on Extensions
Scroll down to you see 'Get more extensions', click on it
Opens the Chrome Web Store, type in IE TAB in the search bar
It will display a few APPS - you want the IE Tab with just the 'e' in a circle for the icon.
Click on + ADD TO CHROME

It will go to a download/install screen, just follow that then close the box.

To play Pool:
1. Log in as normal - Username/Passord then click on Play
2. It will display a box saying: This site uses a plug_in (Java(TM)) that is unsupported
3. Above where it displays that it'll display www.funkypool.com/viewGameWidescreen.do?loggedIn=true
4. Highlight ALL of that till the end of true and right click on the mouse.
5. Click on COPY
6. After clicking Copy, close the box then click on the 'e' in the top right corner (the same symbol as you saw on the IE tab from earlier.
7. It will open a new screen but you'll see a place to type in a Address (very thin search bar called the URL) .
8. DELETE all the writing in that box so there's nothing, then right click on the mouse and click on PASTE
9. What you copied before from the Unsupported box will display.
10. Press Enter.
11. Log In your details again.

Enjoy!

Nah i don't think site will close YET but we have an Owner who doesn't care, Problems with Java (Needed to play which isn't going to encourage beginners to stay), Problems with Premium so its all negative and not many positives.

I'll continue to come on the site until it goes or i have other things to consume my time but it doesn't look good if i'm honest.

With the Main browsers not supporting JAVA why should Nick waste his time to try and rectify what potentially could be a temporary fix? As for him not caring...he's the creator not it's keeper.

Surely isn't that the whole point in having an Admin? To administer assistance to those members who are experiencing technical or game play issues.

This must be the only site online which doesn't then.
Even Winning Putt (Golf Online Game) have a very good technical assistance and that's quite new.

Only Nick can make the changes, Admin can only change tournaments and do forum work/moderate members.

Wrong attitude, its like he got his money's worth when he could try and learn in another language (as you kept saying before) and try and save the site and if he is making a loss, he should sell or shut it down really.

It doesn't help beginners that Java is broken so we get no new members to boost numbers and potentially.more money for nick.

Plenty of ideas out there to make this site a franchise but if owner isn't prepared to do the work then over time, may find a better site and leave. Doesn't have to be Pay to Win but could have Pay or Grind elements (to reward dedicated players) so would be more funding for Nick.

Should see how much Angels makes and for a super good hero and people spend like $500-$1000 trying to get it and thats Free to Play too.

This site used to be 'his hobby', just accept the fact he's moved on to other things, probably even more exciting projects than this site. IF he wanted this site to be franchise etc - I'm sure he would have explored those routes/avenues by now.

He might be staying away due to the amount of players who continuously slate him and his objectives (Could be a contributing factor). Have you ever considered Nick might just be content and happy with how the site it is?

What makes this site IMO different from all the others is it's game play and simplicity - the only thing it needs to become most popular is advertisement and to branch out onto more technology based platforms (ipads/tablets etc). Java is an issue but not a critical one as there's proven ways to get around them.

* Please don't ever tell me I have the wrong attitude btw - who are you to judge?
