How is it calculated who gets the medal? Do we have to post here or is this done behind the scenes?


It is done behind the scenes. You will automatically get one, although I am thinking we need a No Deadbeat clause.

One advantage of posting game numbers here is that I can check and make sure the settings are good. Your games are, and the link goes to a page where people can join the games you created.


Awesome, thanks!

You could just hand out -1 points for every turn missed (or -5 for a deadbeat game) if you want to avoid spammed games for the medal that aren't played.

agentcom wrote:Yeah, if there's brackets in the URL, you have to post the &code for open and close bracket instead. I'll look for those and update this post when I find them. Also, you can remove any settings that aren't set from the URL.

Edit: okay, this used to work, but they've really screwed around with the gamefinder URL unfortunately. I know you used to be able to use the &codes for stuff when you were replacing a bracket in a setting. Unfortunately, the settings themselves now appear to have brackets attached to them for no apparent reason.

So formerly, this would come up in tournament names for example when you'd need to replace a tourney name like "[2013] Tournament" with "[2013] Tournament". Unfortunately, I can't get this to work any more. I have a feeling it's because instead of being a restriction (i.e. on the right side of an "=") the brackets now appear in the setting abbreviation themselves (i.e. on the left side of the "="). The alternative explanation is that I'm using the wrong &code.


Edit 2: Use %codes. Replace [ with %5b and ] with %5d and the URL should parse correctly, letting you place a working URL in a URL tag:

I.e.

Code: Select all
[url=www.site.com/find[]=Y&otherstuff]Descriptive Text[/url]


Should be entered as

Code: Select all
[url=www.site.com/find%5b%5d=Y&otherstuff]Descriptive Text[/url]


Edit 3: I took the liberty of making the URL for you. Notice that I removed any unset variables and also removed the userid variable, as I'm assuming that's used to not show games that you are in. If you leave that in there, I suspect that any game that you join may be removed from the search results. I think the new URLs are too clever by half. Not sure why they changed it up.

Code: Select all
www.conquerclub.com/player.php?gs%5b%5d=W&np%5b%5d=5&po%5b%5d=S&ft%5b%5d=O&wf%5b%5d=Y&tw%5b%5d=Y&sg%5b%5d=N&pt%5b%5d=N&submit=Search


Here's a working version of that URL:

Sorry about that. I did so many attempts that I must've not selected the map in the last one. Oops. Sounds like DY got it handled though.

Is there any way to get this into announcement feed? Right now I am bumping it, as I don't want to lose top billing to the home-page. Oddly enough, I am trying to get onto the home page.

I've headlined it for you.

Oddly enough, I just headlined your Interrogation a couple hours ago. You're quite the headline hustler today!

If anyone is worried about games not finishing in time, here are some ideas:
-set a round limit
-set the game to manual (i just created some escalators and there are a couple zombies out there)
-organize an RT group (feel free to use this thread, callouts, live chat, whatever)

Does casual mean no round limit? Is that still the case or has it been changed to permit round limits? I used the link in GioDuce post above to find some games to clone. Only the ones that I created without round limits appear in the Joins Games link in the original post, but other games created with round limits by someone else do appear. I'm concerned about starting games that will finish by the end of the year.
