Re: Default Game Finder

Postby Euryon on Tue Sep 20, 2011 3:44 pm

I like this suggestion. It essentially exists in the game creator... And surely wouldn't it be stored as a cookie (or some other technical jargon I don't really understand) on the users end, as opposed to serverside?

I like this suggestion, but until it is implemented by the site, the Conquer Club Saved Searches Greasemonkey Script is an excellent substitute. You can save many named searches, and the one named DEFAULT is automatically loaded. You can also load a set of parameters without running the search, and then modify the values and save them under another name, which is a great way to tweak the combinations and build a library of your favourite searches. I have saved a BLANK search, which when loaded accomplishes what you want from the Reset button.

You will note that this topic is in the Archived Implemented Suggestions forum. I suspect this is due to the fact that there is a Greasemonkey script to do just what the OP is asking for, namely Conquer Club Saved Searches. Check out its user guide: viewtopic.php?f=526&t=139337&p=3041091#p3041091

I agree. In the meantime, I'd suggest heading over to Tools and Enhancements and getting MapRank.

Personalizable ''Join A Game''

Postby Dataloss on Wed Jul 11, 2012 5:34 am

Concise description:
  • People should be able to adjust the ''Join A Game'' experience.

Specifics/Details:
  • It should work like a persetted ''Game Finder''.
  • The standard settings should be as close to the original RISK game.
  • You should be able to adjust the settings through a sub-menu in ''Join A Game''

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • People that are new to the site most likely instantly hit the ''Join A Game'' button, when this is implented they will find what they were probably looking for. (A original RISK game)
  • The ''Join A Game'' button will finaly also be usable for members that have been around a bit longer.

You are aware of the "Game Finder" link, right? Seems to be what you're describing and it's conveniently located in the same area as the "Join A Game" link. :/

Yes I"m aware. I'd just like it to be adjustable so if you preset your favorite game options/maps, you can rapidly ''Join A Game'' which you like. And people that are new to the site only get to see the classic games (that's probably why they came to this site).

eh, maybe I read to quickly through it the first time. Upon further review, I still don't care for it. I'd be annoyed if the Game Finder was preset, and I know many users wouldn't take the time to figure out how to turn that off. I'd prefer if the site just allowed you to save searches as MapRank does. I've expressed my support for this in the recent suggestion to that effect.

Oh well, maybe I didn't state it clear enough. But I don't want to change the 'Game Finder' at all. It would be rediculous if a search engine would be preset. I want to change the 'Join A Game', so when you click it, it should work like a preset 'Game Finder'.

Re: Personalizable ''Join A Game''

Postby agentcom on Fri Jul 13, 2012 3:32 pm

I still don't think I like it. I use Join A Game if I just want to browse. I use Game Finder if I have something specific in mind. I don't think I would ever go set up my presets for Join A Game because I am constantly looking for different types of games. Only when I really don't care do I look through the Join A Game tab.

I would much rather that (1) you be able to save searches in Game Finder and/or (2) the Search results (whether from Join a Game or Game Finder) have a lot more filter/sort options. I still can't quite come around to your idea of having users or the site preset what comes up in Join a Game.

I don't like this suggestion as-is, however I would support adding filters to the join a game page. (basically simpler than the game finder as in you only see games you can join, and the filter would be instant)

Thanks 111mike for the suggestion. I'm sure this is around the suggestions somewhere. If not, I've got a comprehensive idea of what could be done with this.

Don't we already have this? I know I have a default saved search when I bring up GameFinder...

If you search, then hit the single back arrow next to the page number, you'll get a URL. You could add that as a favorite, or start a notepad with it for the time being too.

Saved Searches in Game Finder

Postby Boniman on Sat Jan 19, 2013 1:08 pm

Having a radio button in the game finder section to remember your preferences would be an awesome idea. That way if you search for the same types of games you don't have to re-enter them every time. Just a thought.
