    I concur with Joshua777. New format is garbage, in my opinion. Looks 'hinky,' don't like having to constantly scroll.

    I know nothing about a new version of WWF, what I do know is I haven't been able to play it on my computer and I can't seem to get any help which is no surprise from Zynga. The thing is I paid to play the game on my computer, and on my iPad, iPhone so if you can't seem to help me then I'd like my money back just for my computer and I'll just continue to play it on my iPad and phone.

    I am truly about fed up with the ads after every move. It's ridiculous, especially when the same ad keeps repeating. Does the ad HAVE to cover the game board?? Can't you at least put them off to the side so the game can still be played? My game experience has been ruined. Really, Zynga, how much $$ is enough?

    I don't like the fact that, with the new version, results are automatically posted on Face Book. I don't think any of my friends care if I scored big on a triple or whatever!

    I really like the old version of WWF. The "new look" is terrible. I don't like the dictionary feature. The "new look" doesn't fit the screen well. All in all, go back to the old version.

    Agree with every former post. Whoever developed the "new" wwf program must have been high. If this does not get fixed quickly, I'm sure that WWF will lose many players. I have over 20 games waiting for me and I cannot play them. Bring back the "old" WWF. This is a prime example that "new" is not always "better".

    There's no way this new game will work! Why fix something that's not broken! I can't see the whole board!

    The new format is terrible! It does not display properly on my screen and is visually very difficult to see. Please change it back!:mad:

    I don't like the new format: I always rearrange my letters alphabetically, or put my S at the end or my blanks at the end. I hate that I can't rearrange now!!!

    new here. i absolutely agree! since the "new version" loaded, i don't even have a FULL SCREEN anymore! so i can't even scroll to different parts of the board - which i wouldn't WANT to do anyway! nearly a THIRD of my screen is just for the game status, the right side - not quite a third - still taken up by apps, rec pages and such as b4...which leaves LESS THAN HALF of my screen for the actual game! AND don't even have a navigation bar across the bottom of the game so can SEE much less USE the last 3blocks on the right of the board. so my games are now just sitting there, w/me unable to play them! NOW WHAT?? please PUT IT BACK the way it was! =^,,^=

    I might be able to help with "...the last 3blocks on the right of the board...". What are you playing on? OS & Browser, please.

    You have the browser window maximized, right?
    If so, what is the size of your screen?

    I have played this game for a long time. But as it stands I will no longer play. I am totally dissatisfied with this NEW look to Words. I can only see half of the screen and half of my letter tiles. Really upset and don't understand WHY you would want to try to change something that was fine the way it was!!!!! If it isn't changed back I pretty well guarantee you will loose a lot of players in the near to come future. Especially me ! I'm really going to miss this game.:mad:&:(

    Ok. One more thing the problem is that the "ticker" on the right side of your facebook page is covering the game right? If so, try the changes to Firefox you find here..... http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-hide-the-facebook-ticker/

    LMK if that works. Well, especially LMK if it doesn't work.

    just fyi - haven't tried it yet - is way too late, i'm way too tired and brain dead right now! BUT think it may've just gotten weirder, not sure! logged on to another account w/permission - THAT account's WWF was fine - so does this mean it's NOT my computer, but my FB ACCOUNT?? far as can tell, BOTH have gone thru the recent f/b changes.

    oh oh - but don't think the OTHER account has had the notif/request to "update" WWF yet! i tried to IGNORE it, but then it wouldn't let me play...and now i can't! so 6 of 1...

    when logged back into my acct, THIS TIME i did have a [now can' remember what it's called...] the slidey-bar thing that lets you move up/down and left/right...i did have one at the BOTTOM of the game this time BUT it was BLANK w/no bar to move, and the arrows were grayed out, so STILL can't actually use it to move i. may be WAY OFF here, but am wondering if the "ticker" is actually overlaying the game or not, since it DOES have a slidey-bar thing between them, if you know what i mean. don't think am explaining it very well. do you really think if i do manage to close the ticker that the game will then "fill out" the screen, thereby giving me access to the whole board?

    i don't feel like any of this is making any sense - like i'm actually brain dead or something this late! =^,,^=

    "Do you really think if i do manage to close the ticker that the game will then "fill out" the screen, thereby giving me access to the whole board?"

    Yeah, I think so. That's how it worked on my notebook anyway. My other computers
    have larger screens so there is enough room.... unless the window is not maximized.

    You explained things jes' fine.

    There's a simpler solution...
    Right click on the game board
    Click "This Frame >"
    Click "Show only this frame"
    Done!

    Use "Back" if you want to see the ticker.

    Still.... nice to know the ticker can be eliminated

    Yup, the game is ugly, now. Couple of useful new features but ugly.
    You can fix the screen problem if you use Firefox if you want.
    (I'm sort of guessing that I know for sure what's wrong.)

    Right click on the game board
    Click "This Frame >"
    Click "Show only this frame"
    Done!

    Use "Back" if you want to see the ticker.

    There's another way to fix Chrome.

    I have to reduce my screen to 75% to see the entire board, and that makes it too small for me. I play Word Trick too, but might just drop WWF because I don't like the new board!
