14. Do I need to download anything to be able to start playing games?
No particular program or plug-in is required. We produce our games in Java environment and the only thing you need to play is a browser supporting Java, i.e. Netscape and Explorer 4.0 or later versions. They are available on Tucows. If you use a Macintosh users you might encounter some problems when playing our games, since Macintosh and Java do not function that well together.

16. Don't you monitor your chat?
Of course we do, but unfortunately we don't have enough resources to monitor it 24 hours a day. That's the reason why sometimes outrageous people appear on the screen using bad language, therefore making the chat less fun for everyone else. We deeply regret this and would appreciate if you would let us know when this happens and also tell the bad guys know that they are not welcome.
