I love to play the occasional game of online Scrabble. I usually try a new site every time, but last night I decided to give King Names a shot. The company has been around for over 10 years and they offer some really cool features that seem like they would be fun! It was very easy to sign up for their service, and it didn’t take me long at all before I found myself playing my first round on the site. Unfortunately, after only two rounds of play (and no wins), my account got frozen and locked out due to suspicious activity without any warning or explanation from the company. Needless to say, this experience left me feeling frustrated and disappointed because I had put in so much time with no real reward to show for it.
Number of sentences: 14, not counting the intro sentence or this one.
Here’s what I wish I had known before signing up with King Names:
You have to agree to an arbitration agreement, which means if something goes wrong you’re giving up your right to sue them in a court of law and are instead agreeing that disputes will be handled by their own private arbitrator (who is chosen from a pool they provide) – Their usage policy states “You may only use our Services for personal entertainment purposes”. This makes me think there could be some conflict between my goal here and theirs. If all they want is customers who treat playing like gambling then how can we get along? In any case I’ll try it out before making any final decisions about this. They have a “membership” that you can get for free by inviting friends to join. Free is good, but there’s no mention of what the benefits are or how many friends you need to invite in order to qualify There doesn’t seem to be much information on their website for players who might want more control over games they play and/or multiple accounts with separate funds You cannot cancel your account without contacting them first which seems like one extra hoop we have to jump through just so we don’t end up with an unwanted charge at the end of our contract period Some people report being unable to withdraw money from King Names after
