Fix the Sitter Situation

Postby MeanestBossEver on Mon Jul 08, 2013 4:57 am

Concise description:
The sitter situation is a massive flaw. It is absurd that I should have to give someone full access to my account, including my password, to have them take one turn for me.

Specifics/Details:
There have been several great ideas on how to implement this. Any of them will be a massive improvement over the current situation:

viewtopic.phpt=17836
viewtopic.php?t=26721
viewtopic.php?t=29776
viewtopic.php?t=148973
viewtopic.php?t=157512


How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
The current model is insecure, prone to mischief, lacks a clear ability to audit, and is just sloppy. It's been six years since it was first suggested.

This is not a fix. This is a bad hack. Everyone who knows anything about security will tell you never to share your password. There is no reason that someone who is taking a turn for me needs to be able to:

1. Make comments as me.
2. Read my messages.
3. Get passwords that other people have sent me (oops...they didn't want to share with him)
4. Friend and foe people.
5. Join games as me.
6. Make ratings as me.
7. Access private forums.
8. Get my email address.
9. Change communication preferences.
10. Change my password.
11. Add and remove people from my clan (for clan leaders).
and more...

So basically what your suggesting is, to make a "Sitter Mode" in which you can put your account to protect PM's, Forum information, etc.? So basically taking turns.

Yes, this would be great. Prevent password sharing entirely. Allow sitting, but have the actions of each sitter trackable through having to sign in as themselves.

This would be awesome. Even better if it could put both names, the sitter in parentheses: sittee (sitter) wherever the sitter did something.

The worst thing about sitting is that I have to get used to whether or not the players table is on the bottom or side, the size of the map and all those things.

Sitter mode would protect your password perfectly

As long as that includes the ability to chat to (temporary) team-mates.

The problem with this, as previously discussed in the Mod's Forum, is that as a sitter, you occasionally need to do some things outside of simply playing games. For instance:
  • Posting in a tournament thread that requires it.
  • Checking PM's for time sensitive information, like game strategy with teammates or a PM with information about joining tournament games.
  • Sending PM's to teammates about strategy.
  • Editing old post information, like updating a war thread in the Clan area.
