Ready Games Turn Counter

Postby nogreasyhippies on Mon May 15, 2006 8:47 am

This is just a very minor suggestion, but what about having an alert nest to the "My Games" button to tell you when you can take a move in any of your games? like the alert when you get a pm?

JK- I edited out a link to a similar but not matching suggestion that I always click on when viewing this thread, thinking the link should be merged.

"My Games" how it could be better

Postby DoomsDay on Fri Mar 23, 2007 2:53 pm

when i am looking through the forums, i always wonder if its my turn yet. maybe when its your turn the "My Games" button would light up or change so you know its your turn. On a important scale of 1-5, I think maybe 4, Its very annoying.

The only thing I would add to the "my games" page would be a column listing time remaining until next turn / end of turn for each game.

{Suggestion} My Games -- make BOLD when it's your turn

Postby Gnome de Guerre on Tue Apr 10, 2007 11:21 am

You know how the Inbox appears different when you have a new message? I think it becomes bold, and is followed by the number of new messages in blue contained by brackets, like this:

Inbox [ 1 ]

How about a similar altered display of My Games followed by the number of games waiting for you to take your turn?

My Games [ 4 ]

Couple thoughts...

Postby NGC6027 on Thu May 10, 2007 3:04 pm

I had a few ideas for the next update:

{- An automatically updating server so you don't have to keep hitting the refresh map button all the time.}

Forget that one. (The one above.)

- A number by the "My Games" button that says how many games in which it is your turn. It would look similar to the number by your inbox when you get a new pm.

Yeah, that's it. Tell me what you think.

I don't like either. I don't want my browser to keep refreshing the game window that I accidentally kept open, thus eating up my connection speed. I also don't want a little number next to my games. I would find that kinda annoying. You can get conquer tell (a greasemonkey script) if you're using Firefox. It'll have a little "bar" at the bottom that shows you the status of you're games. I like it, and it works no matter what site you're on.

Postby Phobia on Thu May 10, 2007 4:25 pm

yeah, the first suggestion would be nice but imagine all the games that will constantly refreshed. you would need one big big server for that.

i think the second one is good though, i dont think its been mentioned before, which is surprising actually. it would be quite useful when youre on cc forums and youre completely unaware theres a game waiting to be played, and so it would be most useful in rt.
in response to hecters conquer tell comment, conquer tell is good, but only refreshes like every 5 minutes, one by the my games button would be most helpful for rts when you are expected to take your go immediately.

Show number of ready games on my games button

Postby NGC6027 on Sat May 12, 2007 4:45 pm

<Subject>: Games Turns

<Body>: When it is your turn in a game, the number of games in which it is currently your turn will appear on the "My Games" button.

Suggestion Idea: Under <Body>

Specifics: Again, under body

Why it is needed: If you are searching through the club forum, you can see when it is your turn there instead of having to go to your games, while leaving your current position.

Priority** (1-5): 3

This isn't a new suggestion. It's been suggested before, but it isn't a bad idea. You could also get the greasemonkey things that will tell you when it's your turn. It's quiet handy. Check the sticky in General Discussion.

New PM-like notifier for games

Postby GreecePwns on Sat Sep 08, 2007 6:26 am

Suggestion Idea: A small notifier on the "My Games" button when your turn comes up.

Specifics: Something like:[2 turns]

Why it is needed: Just to get people to take their turns before doing everything else and forgetting.

Priority: 1-1.5

ah now i know why. if you are in a rt game, those things only update once every 10 minutes or so. if you want to explore the forums while you wait for your turn, you can.
