Chapcrap pointed me here like I have a special power to make this one possible.
Unfortunately we have already asked in past to lackattack to have the map name/link to map thread (like tournaments games) at the top of the map.....i don't know why it has never been implemented. As everyone in the foundry know my wish list is a long one but it seems that for now I can't strike off the things listed into it. :(

Give every man your ear, but few thy voice. Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment.

I have no idea why that map was named Baseball in the map list. King of Diamonds is the actual name of the map. Like it says on the map.

I pointed you here since the foundry made the Asia name change. I didn't know how much power you had.

This can be changed easily :)

It'd be good IMO, and I think Evil_D would agree as well... though you might want to check with him just to be sure.

I've thought this exact same thing before. I formally endorse this idea. :)

Map Thread Links & Names

Postby chapcrap on Fri Feb 10, 2012 10:44 pm

Concise description:
  • Make a link to the map thread in every game with the map's name.

Specifics/Details:
  • Create a link somewhere in the game page. When you click on it, it takes you to the thread of the map you are playing on.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • It will help everyone report bugs about the map.
  • It will help the players see how the map was made.
  • This would be especially helpful with BETA maps that are still being worked on.

Yeah, so it should be easy to add the same link on the actual game page.

Yeah, I understand how to get there. I don't have a problem navigating the site. This would make it easier for me and for a lot of other people who do not know how to navigate the site.

This would be especially helpful for Beta maps, but it is a good idea all around. I suggest taking the name of the map as it appears above that thumbnail and inserting it as a link on the game page in the large header line which currently has the game number and round number.

I would suggest merging this suggestion with the one about actually displaying the map name somewhere on each game page. If they're going to implement that solution, they might as well link to the map page. I'm all for this idea.

I would not merge them, because they are separate ideas that would be implemented in separate ways.
