Use of Outside Help is not allowed

By Debbyoc

Just a reminder that the use of outside help in our tournaments is NOT allowed. We are starting to once again get a number of complaints about players in our tournaments. If you suspect a player of using outside help please send us an email, admin@wordswithfriends.net, so that we may have our Independent Review Board examine the information. Please send screenshots as well as explanations as to why you feel your opponent might have been using outside help. Admittedly, it is difficult to prove and we do not take it lightly when we have to ban a player from our site.

Rule 1 states:

  1. OUTSIDE HELP – No outside help for words, such as word lists, word unscramblers, or dictionaries. It’s just you and the WWF application. You may, however, refer to the letter distribution (see sidebar)

If you are using outside help to play, then please discontinue playing in our tournaments! We want our players to be using their brains and not having to worry about whether they are playing against a computer. We appreciate your consideration in keeping our site an enjoyable one for all.

January Monthly Tournament Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to BumbleB79 for winning our January Monthly Tournament. Here is the long awaited bio from James. Screenshots to follow.

Hi, I am James from Singapore. Some of you may wonder why I chose my game ID to be BumbleB79. I got the idea from Transformers. There is this yellow autobot named Bumblebee who is one of Optimus Prime’s most trusted lieutenants. He’s not the most powerful but he makes up for his weakness in strength with his bottomless well of luck, determination and bravery and that is someone whom I aspire to be. Of course, I had to thank him for blessing me with great luck to fend off the challenges I faced en route to victory.
Last but not least, I thank the admins for this wonderful website and all my regulars such as Xiong88 and muteone who provide me with unlimited opportunities to sharpen my skills in this game and entertain me with their amazing bingos!
P.S. I have attached a picture of myself. To all my past, present and future opponents, I may appear to be small but I am not afraid of you! LOL just joking!

December Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Our December Monthly Winner, TheEagles, is a repeat winner! Congratulations to you Craig. He has asked me to repost his prior bio and adds that the only difference is that he is a year older! lol. Thanks Craig for being part of our group.

Hi, I’m Craig (TheEagles).  I chose my alias for WWF, and several other games over the years, as a fan of the band.  I’m 54 years old from Kansas City, Missouri; in the United States.

I love to play the WWF.net tournaments, as well as the occasional casual game, as it provides me with micro-breaks from work, and the chance to make new friends from around the globe…you each know who you are, and I thank you for the enjoyable banter, as well as the congrats that many of you have already passed along for this [luck-fueled] win.  I would also like to thank Debby and Don for providing this release for my competitive juices and focus for my obsessive nature.  I never cease to find it funny, that amid life’s real responsibilities, how excited I get at the tone from my phone, letting me know that it’s my turn to play another word…lol.

My passions include my faith, family, friends, scuba diving, flying, and a host of other activities.  I’ve been with the same wonderful woman for over 35 years and we have two children that are the most amazing people I have yet to meet.  They make me look good as a parent; the role of my life that I cherish high above everything else.

I work in finance, including consulting for interests on Wall Street.  Even though Wall Street and associations therewith are certainly out of favor, for good reason, trust me that I am one of the good guys…there are some of us there.

I plan on taking the month of May off (from this OCD-related activity, at least) in favor of family events.  I look forward to a return thereafter…to the intellectual stimulus, as well as the lessons in humility from getting my ass whooped that have come all too often.

Happy Holidays to All and Thank you

By Debbyoc

Don and I would like to wish all of you a very Happy Holiday and a Happy New Year. Thank you, to all of you, for being part of our site. You make this site what it is today. We hope that you have made new friends from all over the world. I have had the pleasure to be part of a “meet-up” in San Francisco in September. What fun it was for strangers to meet as friends.

May the New Year bring you health and prosperity.
