Sounds like a great idea. Don't see why it isn't that way already.

I have wanted this before and never suggested it. Now I look and it's here. How convenient.

I have read through the thread and I found no one that does not want this. NO ONE!

We have 100% agreement from everyone. Has this happened before with more than 3 people? Start a poll. Whoever votes against is immediately banned.

It doesn't matter if everyone on the site wants this. There are about 4 billion pending accepted suggestions and none of them have been implemented. This will just be thrown in the junk pile that's considered the good junk.

You could put the password in the label, and have it as open as a public game, but avoiding the new recruits/deadbeats ;)

When starting a new game: A comment Box

Postby Cherry pepsi? on Fri Apr 13, 2012 4:19 pm

Being a free member (which I have been a premium, but unfortunately can't afford it right now), I have set up many 1v1 games where I'm hoping that the person will agree to an RT. I do know that there is callout forums, and a callout section in the live chat to try to find other willing players to play a game, and maybe a RT. But I feel like maybe there should be a comment box where you can mention a comment like "Looking for an RT" or "Looking for a good game" "Good luck playing against me", or something short. It could be like an optional introduction of what type of person people are going to be playing.

I know there's plenty of flaws in this. But I thought it'd be worth suggesting. What are your guys's thoughts. Has someone thought of this before?

When you make a game, there is already a box available to make a game label in... It is functional for tournament games, but not other games. Maybe it could just be enabled to allow people to add text to it. I would like that.

And, I'm pretty sure what I am saying has been suggested before... I'll look for it.

Found what I was looking for: viewtopic.php?f=471&t=143590

That suggestion is for premium members only and got put in rejected for some reason. People wanted it though. The poll says 13-0 right now.

Weird. I can see that it'd be hard to regulate what everyone is saying on their every post. So it could be offensive or something.

Yes, that is really the only reason not to have it, IMO. But people can easily be reprimanded for putting things in the game label that they shouldn't... So, I'm thinking that it shouldn't be that big of a deal.

I don't know. But all i wanted today was a game to open up so i can start playing... I'm so irritated with all the players who joined my games. I would really like something for free players to show their interest for a RT. I miss speed games.

I think the idea is there so that you DO pay premium to have speed games :)

To have better luck I suggest going into Live Chat and asking in callouts if anyone was interested in a RT game, or PM the players that set up their own 1v1's

Postby IR1SH ACE on Fri Apr 13, 2012 7:23 pm

I like this idea...it would be good if there was some way to indicate you are looking for a RT game...

personally I dont look for RT 1v1 games...not a Freemium (and porbably never will be...love this site to much)
and also dont like playing 1v1 games that much but I can see that this would be a useful tool for players limited to 4 games..

most time when Freemiums need to find a RT game they will have to go into Live Chat Callouts and look for one but there are a few sharks in there just waiting for gullible players to eat up...

So this would be a good idea to allow Freemiums to set-up there own games and know they should get a RT game out of it...

unfortunately if it ever those get implemented it will be 3/4 years from now and it would probably only be available to Premium members... :(

a better idea is maybe start a thread in Callouts forum looking for other players who will play RT games and build a mailing list of your own also PM a few other active Freemiums that play a lot of 1v1 games to see if they are interested and add them to your mailing list and then when you want to play RT game just PM all the names you have gathered and...............sure you know the rest.....

or pay for Premium and play speed games.... :D ....I recently won a year Premium so am covered till late 2013 and am in the final of a inter Clan tourney with a year Premium as the prize, so if I win I will gifted it to you....cross your fingers..

Opening up the game label box wouldn't necessarily be a bad idea, but as others pointed out: I don't think the site is interested in making it easier for freemiums to play what is really the only type of game currently reserved for premiums. There are already ways around it, but you can never be guaranteed to play RT games as it stands now.

This site only costs $25 per year and already gives away the ability to play in nearly every game. I like this as it keeps the player numbers up, but I'm not sure they should be helping to give away more than they are now.

I think that the idea with the redesign of the suggestion forum is that no idea would sit in the main forum forever. The apparent process seems to be that ideas either achieve the necessary level of discussion/consensus/support/whatever to get moved to Submitted, or they get kicked out after being inactive for long enough. Right now the oldest suggestions in the main forum were last posted in in January 2012, so periodically inactive topics must be being swept out. The problem there is that they are being moved to the rejected bin as it is the only other place. A change should be made. Either inactive ideas that don't have a good reason to actually be rejected should be allowed to stay in the main forum forever, or a new "Archived Suggestions" area should be created were inactive "abandoned" threads could be sent. Ideally any posts in an archived thread should (automatically?) bring it back to the main forum were it can have another go at getting the necessary discussion to be Submitted or properly Rejected. (While you are at it, all the old threads that were improperly moved to rejected during the forum revamp should be moved there as well.) Somebody want to make a suggestion on the idea?

Already talked about this is another thread (it's in the suggestions forum somewhere) about this. Basically, the admins didn't want to make another subforum for what this subforum was already for. I guess you could just not move things to rejected when they aren't actually stupid ideas... At least don't do it without making a post saying that it is going to be moved to rejected shortly if there isn't more support.

Re: When starting a new game: A comment Box

Postby AndyDufresne on Mon Apr 16, 2012 2:28 pm

The negatives against a comment box (or a private game label) is that it'd probably add to C&A policing or more coding (such as a disciplinary tool to restrict people from using it if they use it for bigotry or flaming, etc.

I like the idea of in general, but as April Fools admin menu has shown (or the old Feedback system, or game chats or forum posts), if you give people an area to type things, it usually adds to the overall policing that has to be done.
