Hello Pogoians!

Happy April 23 and welcome to the 103rd edition of the Pogo Insider Blog!

Thank you so much for all of your comments during the last Pogo Insider. It was great to be back and interacting with you all.

Hey Pogoians! We’d love your help naming Word Search Daily HD’s friendly owl mascot! The Pogo team brainstormed a selection of names, but we need your help to make the final decision! The winning name will be announced in the next Pogo Insider!

What would you like to name the Owl in Word Search Daily HD?

Loading ... Loading ...

Word Search Daily HD is now available to play on Club Pogo! Click here to read Q&A with Pogo Terry!

Welcome to the Construction Zone! Here is where you will find the latest on game updates. What is currently “under construction” on Pogo? As often as I can, I’ll sit down with the Pogo team and get the latest info on which games are being worked on and what’s coming. I will always post more details when I have them available. Please understand updates are subject to change.

Please understand that unless an announcement comes directly from EA and/or Pogo, we cannot endorse it as true. All games and updates reported here in the Construction Zone have been given the “go ahead” and are on track to come out. Anything else that is reported is speculation right now.

Events

The Challenge Quest Spring Adventure is slated to begin early May.

A Badge Marathon for the HTML 5 update to Trizzle begins in mid-May.

Keep your eyes peeled for a special Mother’s Day Badge Event!

Game Updates

Sweet Tooth Town – As of today, there’s been an update to the game’s economy. Please click here for an informative article explaining the update.

Claire Hart: Secret in the Shadows – As stated in the last Pogo Insider, Claire Hart’s last weekly episode will be released on April 10. Fear not: Claire will return in June with a massive eight-part case to solve. On top of that, there will also be a special spring episode that’ll be free for Club Pogo Members. I’ll keep you posted!

After June, new Claire Hart: Secret in the Shadows cases and episodes will arrive every few months, following a quarterly release schedule.


New Games

Word Search Daily HD – This game is now available to play on Club Pogo! Click here and start searchin’ for those words!

What’s on deck? More new games are on the way including Royal Wedding: One Year Later, a new hidden object game. Rainy Day Spider Solitaire HD and Mahjong Garden HD are also on the way, bringing beautiful updates to these Pogo classics.

Website updates
Coming soon: A new Pogo experience – Click here for more information on how to gain early access.
Java Game Retirements – With Java and Flash technologies being phased out across the internet, we will be retiring some of the Java and Flash games on Pogo in June and July. Please click here for the list of the games retiring on June 6. For the July 2 game retirements, click here, and then click here for the list of the games to be retired on July 30.  We know some of you purchased Challenges for these games you have not had the opportunity to complete. If you don’t get them done before they retire, the Badges will be automatically awarded to you shortly after the games retire.

Please note that while these games are going away, there is always the possibility some will be updated and brought back later. Keep your eyes on the Pogo Insider for more game news!

Here’s some information about upcoming updates and changes from recent blog articles:
Mini Mall – Please note, there will no longer be items added to the Pogo Mini Mall as we focus on bringing new content and updates to other parts of the site. Your wardrobe of Mini items will remain available to you, along with tons of items in the store.

Tokens – As many of you are aware, the current token system will be replaced with a new awards system. As stated in a May 2018 blog, I, and the rest of the Pogo team, know this is a point of contention for some of you. For those of you for whom tokens provide a way to project status and achievement over time, we hear you and we understand your aversion to losing this status. Tokens in the current Flash and Java games will remain and will not be removed. We thank you for your understanding. Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming system.

Chat – We know a lot of you guys love chat and consider it a critical feature. We’re aware of the many requests for chat to be updated and to be returned to the side of the game screen. The team here is looking into it. I’ll give you an update as soon as I have one!

Pogo recommendations and specifications for your computer have been updated as of August 14, 2018.  These are the recommended specifications for playing Pogo games smoothly on your computer. If you are experiencing loading issues, I strongly encourage you to check out the computer specifications listed. Having a compatible computer helps ensure the best possible Pogo experience!

Every week I answer a non-technical question related to Pogo. We get lots of questions every week, so I try to focus on common themes or the same question coming from different folks. Please ask your non-technical related question in the comments section of the blog.

(For technical issues, please go to Pogo’s Help Page.)

Q. Question for the Engineering team; what all is involved in the weekly maintenance process; since my day is just getting started about that time?
A. 
Every other Tuesday, in the wee hours of the morning, (depending upon your timezone of course), Pogo has weekly maintenance.So what does go on during Pogo maintenance? Let’s ask Pogo Engineering to give us a behind the scenes look.

During this maintenance, the Pogo team rolls out fixes at one time on a schedule so there are less disruptions. These fixes including everything from bug fixes to new content pushes and updates to the Pogo games you all know and love. You know that update to Jewel Academy from 4/9? That was done at the time of maintenance. The team also makes gameplay updates during this time. These are fixes you may not see within a game but you may notice when you experience faster and smoother game loading and play time.

Thank you for the question and if you have any other questions for any department within the Pogo team, please comment below and I’ll try to get back to you with an answer in a future Pogo Insider.

As you may have read, Mahjong Garden and Rainy Day Spider HD are on their way to Pogo. As such, I’ll be sitting down with Pogo Clement for another Pogo Insider Q&A. If you have any questions for him about either game, please comment below and your question may be answered. Yippee!

Thank you for reading the Pogo Insider. Have a fun and fantastic rest of the week here on Pogo. Try to make someone guffaw today!

Cheers,
Pogo Llama

  • I know that most Java games will be gone by this summer, which is understandable,is there a chance that some of those games could be coming back in the the new HD format.

    • Yes. Absolutely there is a chance. Please stay tuned to the Pogo Insider Construction Zone section for all game updates. :)

    • yeah because I like a lot of those games

      • Most of the games I like to play are Java….so I am glad to hear that they are scheduled to go to HD

  • Im making a second attempt at my comment. I truly hope that Vaults of Atlantis makes the transition to HD! I have really enjoyed the Egg Hunt marathon but the Poppit Bingo badge has been almost impossible to get! Hours and hours to only get 2 of 5 so far. Sweet Tooth was the first game I ever fell in love with when I joined in 2001 and I really hope that Sweet Tooth Town is not taking its place because it’s a game I don’t particularly care for. Are there going to be any more game options added to the tournaments?

    • Hi Dakirk,
      Unfortunately, I do not currently have any information on the Tournament feature. When I do, I will let you all know in the bi-weekly Pogo Insider Blog. Thank you for asking. Thank you.

    • I have been hoping Vaults of Atlantis makes it to HD also. Is that possible?

  • I know that you have received many comments about the lack of chat on the HD games. I’ve been here for a very long time and the reason I came here was because my local Bulletin Board had shut down. I had been playing games there & chatting – I actually met my husband on there 23 years ago.

    While some people do not like the chat – and that’s fine for them – for people like me, bead-bound due to my disability, chat is a lifeline to the world outside of my bedroom. I have met many wonderful people on Pogo who have laughed with me, cried with me and supported me. They have become my FAMILY. If I wanted a site where there was no chat, I could play on Yahoo.

    Isn’t EA into interactive multiplayer games wherein they are able to chat or talk while they play? Madden Football, etc.? We (me and others like me, as there are many here) just want some company as we live out our lives in our Disabled Land. Thanks for reading this Pogo_Llama.

    • Hi Dani,
      Thank you so much for writing in and sharing your journey with me. Pogo is listening to all of the chat requests as I’m relaying them to the team. I totally understand what you’re saying about meeting those on chat and having them become like a family to you. I am listening to your feedback and passing it all along.
      Thanks again.

  • I have posted may questions , and never have got an answer, but I will try again. Can u please ask the team if they can keep lottso and dice city roller because a lot of players play in pogo groups every day (not leagues, just pogo friends) We understand java is going out but we use older browsers so we can play. Is there any way EA can come up with a new browser? I thought EA was one of the biggest game developers ? So many of them wont renew once these games are gone…were losing our pogo friends …were so sad because we LOVE POGO and our friends. PLEASE ask the pogo team to at least save these 2 games.

    • Thank you so much for your idea and request for a Pogo browser, Mickey. I hear you and am listening to you. Thank you for being a part of Pogo.

  • is the games left on the ongoing tournament going to go away or the tournament stop. it’s bee a long time

    • Hi Connie,
      Unfortunately, I do not currently have any information on the Tournament feature. When I do, I will let you all know in the bi-weekly Pogo Insider Blog. Thank you for asking. Thank you.

      • Please don’t take the tournament away. I really enjoy playing on the Tournament also can you add back the games that was taken away like Word Whomp, Pop-it ect?

      • Oh please don’t take the tournament away I enjoy playing so much I live on it playing with my friends and family.

  • While I’ve spent many typing moments to complain about Pogo, I recently decided to give time to the changes Pogo/EA have made to this site. I’m not ignoring the things I don’t like; I’ve just been remiss in ignoring the positives.
    1) Egg Hunt – GREAT! I was so pleased to find all the old favorites and NO QUINN! I didn’t mind the directive to buy the 3rd level badge. I was just content with the games offered for free to Club Pogo folks.
    2) Sweet Tooth Town – GREAT! I ignored it at first ’cause it seemed so complicated. I’m still somewhat befuddled by it. Learning that the payment I receive when winning can actually be used to move ahead is wonderful! It greatly helps my befuddlement (is that a word?) I find it helps me swear less when playing!
    3) Word Whomp – it doesn’t matter if you play easy or hard, we still get the same rating increase – nice job!
    4) It’s helpful to see the progress made (on HD games) after each challenge since chat is quite challenged.
    5) Pogo/EA is always there, no matter what time we waken & no matter why we did. It’s always there.

    Thanks Pogo/EA

    • Hi Rmij,
      I love love LOVE your positive attitude. This is a list full of positivity and gratitude and I thank you as it lifted my spirit as well. I always start my day with three things I’m grateful for (I really do this on a daily basis), and so I love reading something like this.
      So while I know things aren’t perfect anywhere, there’s always something to be grateful for. Thank you for this list and for sharing it with me.

  • Oh, one more thing – this time a suggestion –
    Perhaps you could make a Pogo a 3-tier club. #3 being free Pogo with no badges; #2 being Club Pogo with many badges; #3 being Club Pogo that buys badges that cannot be attained by #s 1 or 2.
    Thanks again!

  • Thank you Pogo for the free 38 egg badges given in the Great Egg Hunt. Loved the assortment of challenges. Was lots of fun!

  • I really loved the egg hunt, many different varities in the badges, I goofed, on explorer, I couldn’t get the arrows to go all the way over, and then I got smart I tried it in aol. and here are 12 others I didn’t know about, I wondered why so many of the games said badge, but anyways I loved the egg hunt

  • I miss playing Pogo Addiction Solitaire. Is there any way of bringing that back?

  • I sure hop that Thousand Island Solitaire and Pogo Addiction (after all pogo addition has the POGO name in it}, become HD. The two are my favorite of the Java games.
    I really have enjoyed the egg hunt, when I finish I will have 108 pts. I did buy a couple of the games with gems, but didnt think I could get them all done. I sure do wish I could have gotten the Easter egg basket.. its cute.

    • Thank you Wonellie!

    • I loved and thoroughly enjoyed the Egg Hunt. Also hoping Thousand Island Solitaire comes back HD. I really miss it. Thanks so much.

  • Pogo, I kept checking the mini mall for new Easter releases but the all items always came up a blank page. Is Pogo not issuing new mini items anymore?

    I joined the Easter hunt but there are several games I don’t know how to play so came up short on enough points to win. I’ve previously commented if Pogo could please offer more game options so players like me have a chance to reach the final goal. Also including a power up sale for participating games would be great.

    Thanks

    • Hi Surreal65,
      Thanks for participating in the Egg Hunt and it is okay if you did not play all of the games. Play what you enjoy and that is just fine. :)
      As for the Mini Mall, there will no longer be items added to the Pogo Mini Mall as we focus on bringing new content and updates to other parts of the site. Your wardrobe of Mini items will remain available to you, along with tons of items in the store.

      • i know u told us that we will have no more new stuff in the mini mall but that was something i enjoyed and always look forword to it

  • I absolutely loved the egg hunt game would much rather have something like that than the badge album’s being threw at us…i found it more fun!!
    Sure hope you do it more often!!
    I was hoping they would kept Lottso instead of Express
    loving the new word search HD one of my favorites others is ok but they not the same they revamped them too much took oldness out and took why we loved certain games…no vividness hurt my eyes with glaucoma..they need toned down not so bright.
    Thanks for updating us!!

    • Hi Luvmetender60,
      Thank you for your comment and especially for letting me know about the issue with the colors in some of the HD games and how hard it is for those with glaucoma. Are there any games specifically that you could point me to? I appreciate that and will let the team know.
      Thanks for participating in the Egg Hunt and glad you had so much fun. Have a great weekend!

  • Sorry for complaining about the Poppit!Bingo Egg challenge. I finally did it, and finished all my eggs. Now I’ll say again, this was a WONDERFUL challenge and the eggs are beautiful, I will treasure them.

  • pogo_llama
    i would like an option on friends list that you can refuse a player as a friend instead of blocking them. players have seen my name in lobby and just add me without even playing each other. thank you.

  • Eggcellent Easter activities beautiful eggs design, the hunt was fun thanks Pogo Team.

  • I wanted to ask if Pogo will bring back mini items. I’ve always enjoyed making new minis and was very disappointed that they stopped adding new things. If they can’t add new ones, perhaps bring back some of the older ones? Thanks!

    • Hiya Chrissy,
      I do understand that you enjoy the Mini Mall and I thank you for your suggestion. At this time, there are no plans to bring back any of the older Mini Items. However, if that changes, you’ll all be the first to know as I’ll post it in the Pogo Insider biweekly blog.

      Thank you!

  • I’ve been with Pogo for 14yrs. Gave myself a subscription for my birthday every year but not sure that I’ll be renewing this year. Too many good games are being lost and the new ones that I’m seeing or hearing about are not my cup of tea. I know that you don’t have a say in what’s being removed and I understand why but it’s still upsetting.

    • Hi drafs5,
      Thank you for explaining your situation and commenting. What are your favorite games and game styles? Thank you.

  • Although I do appreciate all the free badges that are given to us, I never play the games that the badges are for. There are 3 games that I play religiously, and in a month I won’t be able to play the games that I enjoy and that I joined this site for. Please, please at least bring Crazy Cakes back. Granted, there is never more than 50 people that play the game but we very much like to play. Thank you for your time….

    • Thank you for your game requests and I am always here to listen. I do urge you to check out the new HD games as you may find some that you enjoy even if it takes a bit longer to get into. Thank you for being a part of POgo, DoobageDetour.

    • I LOVE Crazy Cakes too – it would be great to bring it back in the HD version. We can hope :)

  • I tried the new Word Search Daily HD and liked the game play I rushed do 30 puzzles in order to get my first badge only to find out this game only has rank badges. Even though I did like it I won’t be playing it other then when it comes up as a weekly challenge.

    I’m still disappointed over losing our tokens I don’t feel like the new reward system fully replaces what we are losing, it surely hasn’t stopped cheating because we see people who have ranked out in the new games the same week they are released.

    Thank you for all the work your doing trying the keep pogo current and fun.

    • Hello MysteriousMoods,
      Thanks for your feedback on WSD. I’m glad you gave it a go and played 30 puzzles.
      Please understand that Pogo has not yet released the new award system. When that happens, I’ll let you know here in the blog. Thank you for your understanding.
      Pogo does not tolerate cheating of any kind. Thank you for reporting it and please know the team is aware. Due to the privacy policy, we are unable to provide details on actions taken.

      Thank you for being a part of Pogo.

  • can you please put the coins back in sweet tooth town without them I can not get extra moves some of the levels we need extra coins to get one star thank you

  • Thank you for your help on my question about sweet tooth town. I couldn’t get the players to help me.

  • Glad to see word search daily made it into html5.

    Will club pogo members be able to submit their own puzzles words list like you guys let us do years ago?

    We could submit a topic and then a list of words and then if you accepted them the daily puzzle would show the topic and then say “submitted by” with the users screen name.

    Was a great way to get people committed to a game that will take years to rank out in.

  • It’s been a year since the tokens were taken away from HTML games. I am really disappointed that nothing has been done to rectify this.

    • Hello MLucas,
      Please understand the Pogo team is working on this. When updates are available, I will let you know. Thank you for your patience.

  • Hi, I’m excited about Rainy Day Spider Solitaire and Mahjong Garden being HD. One thing I hope we don’t lose our dragons, lol I’m kinda attached to mine, he’s over 1500 years old, I would hate to lose him.
    I also love the Egg Hunt, even though I can’t do all of them, it gives me goals on the games I like to work towards. Most of the games I like I have ranked out on them and done all the badges, so new ones like this make playing the games more fun when you are working towards a goal. That’s one reason I love Quinn’s Aquarium so much, we are making an aquarium task by task and it makes it more interesting.
    One last thing, Word Whomp used to be one of my favorite games, but since it has gone HD it is really hard to play, physically. You have to put the cursor in just the right spot for it to pick up a letter and I spend more time hitting a letter over and over to get it. After a few games I’m worn out lol. I’ve talked to others that used to play the games alot and they are having the same problem. If you could ask them if there is anything you could do about that it would make playing the game more fun.
    Anyways all in all I love this site. I do hate seeing the chat going away. I didn’t talk alot but I enjoy reading them and feeling not so alone all the time.
    Keep up the good fun work. Thanks POGO.

    • Hi Traci,
      Thank you for taking the time to express your feelings about the Egg Hunt, Word Whomp, Chat, and Quinn’s.
      1. The Egg Hunt was so much fun to come up with. I’m really happy that you enjoyed it so much and that you shared with me why you enjoyed it so much. Congratulations on participating as well!

      2. Word Whomp. Thank you for sharing that feedback with me. I don’t always know how others are playing the game so it definitely helps to have an example. I will let the team know.

      3. Chat. We know a lot of you guys love chat and consider it a critical feature. We’re aware of the many requests for chat to be updated and to be returned to the side of the game screen. The team here is looking into it. I’ll give you an update as soon as I have one.

      Thanks again for stopping by. I really appreciate your comment.

      • Not sure if this will help but when I play Word Whomp I use the keyboard to enter the letters instead of the mouse. Makes it much easier. :-)

      • I have a suggestion for Word Whomp …. right click = enter like the original java based one was. I always hated that they removed the feature when the game was updated to flash, and was hoping the new HTML 5 version would include it.

  • why can’t you leave things alone , i have been playing membership games for many years, when you change something you seem to screw it up,
    there are groups of us who have played together, in canasta, spades pinochle hearts cribbage dominoes mahjong gardens that is what our memberships pay for , not your new daily Sudoku, or word search , and please do not keep making HD formats, they really mess up name of game rooms, etc.
    thanks

    • Hi Carly,
      Thank you for your comment. I’m so sorry you are feeling this way but I do hear you.
      Please understand that the creator of Java and Flash will no longer be supporting Java and Flash in the future and that means Java and Flash will no longer be available. This means that Pogo must move to the HD technology to keep creating games. Pogo’s working on so much for the future so stay tuned here on the blog to find out as updates become available. Thanks again for your comment and for being a part of Pogo.

  • Hello,I would like to know where my comment went,I thought it was a reasonable request wanting to know about the Mini Mall Past/Present items.If Pogo was willing to bring them back the ones from the day they where offered to today.This way everyone is happy.

    • Thank you so much for your suggestion with the Mini Mall. I hope you have a really fun weekend here in Pogo.

  • i really like playing payday free cell but very hard to see wish that game was in full screen

    • It’s very easy to enlarge the screen. I can increase the playing area in all 3 browsers I play: Google Chrome, Firefox and Pale Moon. Just increase the “zoom” as large as you need. You can’t enlarge Java games but you can for Flash.

  • Hey Pogo Llama,

    Could you please tell the team to update Texas Holdem Poker and High Stakes Pool? My husband only plays these two games on pogo and they are going away in June. He has played these two games for many years. I like the Texas Holdem Poker game more than any of the other Poker games. Love watching the robots when they loose. Makes sad faces…lol. Also, there are not any Pool games on pogo except for High Stakes Pool. Would be nice to keep these two games. Thanks! lady

    • Thank you for your game requests, Ladymademe. I will pass them along to the team.

  • This month has been awesome! So many badges and along with being available they are also attractive. Although I like the theme badges, I do like badges that showcase the creativity and fun of the graphic artists. Well done all around. Thanks for keeping the games fun and attractive. And thanks for all the different types of games in the hunt. It was fun to do a boggle badge, a game I don’t usually play but I still enjoy.

  • hello pogo llama…well, its been almost 1 year since you said you were working on a new reward system to replace tokens…so where is it? I only play html games now if it is a daily or weekly….no sense going for ranks without some reward…so do you have any information on this besides the paragraph you put in every week in the blog…look how many games you have changed over in 1 year…why not the reward system? hope you have a good weekend

    • Thank you for your question, Shmr, and when I have more information I will provide it here on the blog. I hope you’re having a great weekend.

  • Thanks for the bonus “GEMS” ! They really help when u need to finish with a game.

  • Would you please add the dates retiring on the list of Java games retiring. I would like to finish all the challenges I can so I would like to play those retiring soon first. Thanks so much!

  • I was wondering if there was any chance that Jungle Gin & Everyone wins Bingo will be updated to the HTML5 platform soon? They are two of my favorite games & I am missing new badges for both of ’em. Just curious if they are planned for the upgrade or are being fazed out. :(

  • Hi there! Will POGO ever really go “all in” and invest in making games for mobile devices and tablets (like IOS?). I know there’s an app with 6 games… for many many years now, but with people no longer using PC’s as much, I would think mobile games would be a smart investment in time and I know us players would love it. Thank you!

    • Hi impluto!
      I have some great news for you as the HD games here on Pogo are Tablet compliant! Check them out and let me know your thoughts. Thank you!

  • Loved the egg hunt!! I am also happy that rainy day spider will be changing to HD, but it leaves yet one more game in the tournaments that is leaving without telling us what will be happening to the status of the tournaments in the future. If the tournament stays – it would be great to include all of the newer games. Very saddened to see the changes in chocolate coins being awarded in the sweet tooth town game – I was addicted to it when it first started, but now it really isn’t worth the time – hope this change is reconsidered. All that said – I still enjoy my Pogo, and play it every day.

  • Your going to ignore my previous post like usual because it’s not all full of sunshine and butterflies. I don’t understand why ignore anything with a real question or substance

    • Hi again MysteriousMoods,
      Unfortunately I was a bit busy and have not been able to get to all of the blog comments from this week. Thanks for dropping by!

  • Hi..thanks so much for Easter Egg Hunt…was a blast..we have free challenges every week beside the required badges..Could we get new ones please because there are not many left for me to do and would love to have new ones instead of redo old ones…Thank you for all you do for us greatly appreciated!!

    • Hi Savory,
      Thank you for your request and for playing the Great Egg Hunt. So glad you had a blast! :)

  • Why is so hard to get help these days?No access to phone
    call or chat. Thank you…

    • Hi Viola,
      To contact Pogo’s customer support team, please click this link here. From there, you will be able to request a chat or callback. Thank you so much.

    • I filed an issue just this week and got a call back within minutes. Just thrilled that it no longer takes months to hear anything from Pogo Help.

  • Can you please add Peggle (original)?

  • hi but my post that i posted about missing GEMS is not here and I just wanted to know why and if you could give me back some of my missing gems please and thank you

    • Hi SweetMZness,
      Unfortunately I’m unable to help out with Gem issues and requests. Please click here to contact customer support. Fill out a support ticket and someone will help you.

  • Hi there was wondering why there have been no more new games for Clue..love this game.

    • Hi Adrian,
      Thanks for writing in and asking your question about Clue. Please click here for more information on the game regarding your question.
      Thank you.

  • Hi, I love almost all the games. Would be great if there were more card games or board games. Please bring back Euchre, Pinouchle, Cribbage. Or some new card games such as Uno, Skippo, Phase 10, Mille Bournes, with ranks. Would be a great edition. Thanks for listening.

    • Hi sexytigress. You made some really good suggestions for the new card games. I would love to see a Mille Bournes game as it is one of my favorite card games!!

  • HI, well just a few words, don’t know if anyone has mentioned this but I enjoy pogo. But my main reason for writing is to THANK ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WORK ON THIS SITE. Because of them POGO is a Great Site. Thank you for the people who make this site enjoyable.

    • Thank you so much for your kind words, Spikysassie. We all really appreciate it. :)

  • I also want to find positives in the new changes with pogo. I loved the big egg hunt challenge. I have been a pogo member for 11 years and that is the first one of that size. It is definitely great. I guess I will have my computer man look since there are new upgraded games with will not load that I missed in the challenge. Two years ago when we were told not to use firefox I didn’t have it put on my new computer, and now find that with only internet explorer I don’t get to play many games anymore, so my view of the changes may be negative due to my experiences with the new games. Some of the upgrades are just bad and I wish they would be refined before releasing. there are many things I don’t like about the upgrades, but I am resistant to change so I will work to get used to them, much the same way we are forced to learn new programs at work. Please address the games that have been upgraded that you have been told are bad upgrades, many of those are the ones I love to play. I am going to work on being more positive because many of the changes will be good in the long run.

    • Thank you for your thoughts, Lottie. I appreciate your trying to remain positive and your feedback.

    • Lottie 1906, I have been using Firefox and only firefox for several years and have no problem playing any of the Pogo games. Give it another try.

  • Quick question: At the end of this blog, could you add a quick way to Scroll to Top? Without having to manually scroll up through a long list of questions/answers and other news?
