    Hi everyone. We have been asked to gather feedback and suggestions from our members for the PokerStars Home Games. Please make your posts in this thread. The Home Games feature is still in Beta mode and at this point it is possible for suggestions to be considered.

    I would greatly appreciate your feedback.

          Allow the participants to re-run the games with hole cards showing for a week after the game if all those taking part agree.

            I would definitely like to see the ability to do smaller buy-in tourneys. I have a lot of people in my Home Game trying to build a bankroll and even a $.50 or $.25 buy-in would be great.

            I would also agree that a way to make a tournament a regular event would be good. That way you can post the tournament, and check a box that would say something like "Make Weekly Event".

                I would like more of an explanation for the league function. It seems the site allows the home games to collect data and rank players, which is good. Since I am not a home game manager, it is possible these items are already covered. What I would like seeing is:

                1 --- Scoring system explained.
                This need not be a long-winded thing, but a quick primer for those interested via a link on the ranking page.

                2 --- Resetting.
                There needs to be a way of restarting the league's scoring system. This could either be done by number of games scheduled, or by date.

                3 --- Historical data.
                If there is a league, there should be a way to see what happened in the prior season. However, to conserve computer space, only the one prior season could be seen.

                4 --- Bulletine board.
                This should be a one-page listing for the manager to post important items.

                5 --- Scheduling.
                There should be a means of entering multiple dates for the home games, such as every Xday at a specific time.

                6 --- Non-league games.
                Managers should have the ability to designate certain games as not part of the usual season and the results of such games would be ignored by the system for points.

                7 --- Special prizes.
                Give the leagues the option of an additional fee for seasonal prizes. I'm thinking of a prize structure for the league's standings that would pay those players who excell, such as is done in the PSO. Like the usual game fees, these would be subject to a set fee, such as 10-cents per player, regardless of the money, with a maximum set at $5.00.

                8 --- Prize limitations.
                By this I mean a way of limiting the number of winners paid regardless of the number who enter a tournament. This would need to be designated as an either/or payout. "Prizes will be assigned based on the number of players, but shall not exceed 9 winners." So a tournament with 27 players would have seven paid, but if a tournament has fifty players, it could be limited to the maximum allowed of 9.

                9 --- Variable league structures.
                Players standings would be based on a set number regardless of games played. For example, the league could have thirty games scheduled in a month, but just the top ten finishes will be used to determine standings.

                      You can, and you don't have to have played any. It's in the club home tab in your club lobby eff. I see everyone in your club and I haven't played yet this month.

                          i like these two ideas. i too have players in my home game who would enjoy playing at lower stakes but still play for real money. i realize that PS needs to make money from the games, but even .25¢ + 0.02¢ would make a little more than a play money game!
                          and certainly making up a repeating tourney for every Sunday (or what ever) would sure be nice.

                          me too, it's fun and i've even tried to win that Pro at your game thing..
                          i wasn't successful, but it was exciting!

                          i also wish that when there were 4 - 5 players i could opt to pay the top two places rather than winner take all.
                          it just helps spread the wealth a little.

                          and one more thing - making a way to contact the members for an upcoming tourney or a last minute reminder.
                          since we can only PM 5 at a time.. my homegame group takes 6 separate messages to reach everyone. i can't imagine how difficult it is for a realy large home game group!

                              Staff, they have changed the set up window for creating a tourney. Now with the addition of the notes section, the window has increased in size. On my lil' netbook, I can no longer see the submit box at the bottom of the page. Is there any way to make this window a scrollable one? Or maybe make the notes section a little smaller? The window is not adjustable so there is nothing I can do.
                              I appreciate any help here.
