HOW TO USE THIS BULLETIN BOARD:

    FIRST, SEARCH THE PAGE FOR PLAYERS IN YOUR AREA:

      A lot of people have posted announcements that they are looking for players like you! You could scroll through the entire list, but a better way to find people in your area is to use the Find/Search function in your Browser to search by city or state. You may need to try different key words for your search. After your search, if you don't find anyone, I'm sorry, but this is all the names that I have. If you don't find anyone on this list or in FAQ 4A (teachers), write your own announcement and email it to me and I'll post your announcement below. That's the best I am able to do.

    SECOND, POST YOUR OWN ANNOUNCEMENT:

      EMAIL YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT to Webmaster@Sloperama.com to submit your Find Players/Teachers post. In your email, you must specify your location (just city, state, and maybe zip code; do not state your street address) and what kind of mah jongg you play (most American female players play "American/NMJL" mah jongg - if you do not know which variant you play, read FAQ 2b). All users' posts go through me. That means you cannot expect your announcement to appear within a few minutes of your sending it to me; allow several hours at minimum.

      NO SHOUTING. If you use all capitals in your post, it will be converted to lower case before being posted.

      EVENT ORGANIZERS: Please send your announcement in text-only form for easy posting. No PDFs. We can post an image here (just one image per announcement), but the image must not exceed 400 pixels in the largest dimension. Images must be JPG or GIF or PNG attachments in an email (not a link, and embedded in the email; no DOC files, no PDFs). Links must show complete URL. When announcing an event, please include the year in which the event is to occur.

    If you have already posted on this board within the past year, and if your post is still visible below, PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO PLACE A NEWER ANNOUNCEMENT unless you have moved to a different city, or your game has changed to a different day of the week, or some other substantial change has occurred in regards to your posted information.

    Legal Notice: owner accepts no responsibility for verifying the accuracy of any of these listings--please use your discretion in contacting fellow potential players.

There's a Nassau County in Florida and one in New York. Since tropical storm Ian is crossing Florida right now, it's probable that this mah-jongg invite came from the Nassau County in New York. - Webmaster

Hi Tom, its Doris Klein, remember we used to play together?
I have a game that lost a player and we now are only 3, we're looking for a player to join. I am in the West Hollywood area of Los Angeles, zip code 90069. Can you please post an ad to help in the search.
As well, I am also looking to find a new game in my area that I can join, so perhaps you can also post an ad on my behalf for that. Re: both, I/we play American Man Jongg.
Thank you again, and hope you are staying well during these challenging times!
Best,
Doris Klein

Hi, Doris! Of course I remember you, and fondly. The posts seeking players or seeking games are written by the seekers themselves, so I've merely forwarded your email to the Find Players bulletin board. I hope you find a player for your group, and I hope you find another group of nice people just like you. So great to hear from you! Play safe and stay healthy. Now that so many of us are vaccinated, we see that the threat of COVID is greatly reduced (vaccinated people who do catch it are not dying). I still wear my mask when I go shopping. I haven't joined any games since moving "back east," and when I do, I'll only play with vaccinated players. Sorry, didn't mean to get preachy. You and I are survivors. Keep on playing!
Tom

Looking for players? A teacher? A tournament? Announcing a tournament or your teaching availability? This is the place. Have at it. Email your message to me and I'll post it here, verbatim. Like it says in the way-too-lengthy boilerplate above, if you want to post a picture, it must be no larger than 400 pixels in either dimension, and there is a limit of one picture per post.
Also, a limit of one post per year per guest (exception: event organizers who host multiple events per year). No bumping.
Teachers who want a stationary post in FAQ 4A may email me in addition to a bulletin board post. The board's pre-lockdown postings have been archived.
Play safely and stay healthy. And may the tiles be with you.
