Unable to Join

I attempted to create a two person friends game. The first attempt when I hit create, all the info disappeared and nothing happened. As far as I can tell the game never came into being. I retried to create the game and this time when I hit create it took me to the join screen, so I tried to join and nothing happened other than taking me back to the join screen. I then searched for the game and found it #154570 game name is Fun. No one had joined the game (my earlier attempt obviously failed) so I hit the join game again after putting in the password and again I bounced out to the join games screen. I have checked my pending games - still not there, refreshed my web page several times and gone back to the join game screen, searched, found and still 0 people have joined. Why can't I join my own game? Will the person I sent the password to, be able to join?

I just solved the problem, I found an error message at the top of the join screen after trying one more time, and now know that as a new member I am limited to 3 games, and that the limit will raise to 5 after being here a month. Hopefully this post helps others.

Yes, the top is where error messages always go on Playdip, so always keep an eye on that area if something odd is happening.

Thank you, I also deleted the game to avoid cluttering up your game openings file, as it is likely to be several weeks yet before I have a slot open to take on another game. :)
