Why build any existing add-ons into the site at all? Why not focus on the things that have not been or cannot be provided by the community that have been suggested? That seems to me to be a more fitting use of a web developer's time than merging existing add-on scripts into the site's codebase.

Anyway, here are my top 5 suggestions that I think the web developer should add:

Adjacent Attacks: viewtopic.php?f=535&t=51364
Mass Wall clear option: viewtopic.php?f=535&t=116709
Avatar picture on wall posts: viewtopic.php?f=535&t=123396
Increase player limit to 12: viewtopic.php?f=535&t=113234
Use HTTPS properly across the site: viewtopic.php?f=535&t=136613

the reason i am proposing that some add-ons be implemented is because not everyone can use the browser they have been developed for. i will survive if they remain as they are it is just that i think they are so great they should be available to all.

Watch this Game is awesome for TO's and Map Rank for everyone wanting to know how far from a medal they are.

the only other one i use is Speed Turns so i can't comment on them other than to point out that i did not think any of them were worthy of adding-on in the first place.

I am still a big fan of the 1 vs 1 team game idea. That could be super cool to play!

My list:

1. Have the ability to know what the drop looks like in a fog game before your opponent starts his/her turn--at least know your starting positions. (not sure of any other game where you don't at least know how you started the game)

2. Have an add time button which you can use for all your games maybe once a week or once a month--maybe it adds 12 hours to each game for your turn.

3. Increase the tourney limit medals==30 is so ancient history.

4. Keep up the great work--CC is the best. I have tried two other sites and I didn't even finish the games because the sucked so bad :).
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.

I would love to see Watch This Game integrated - I currently use it as an add-on, but if I use a different PC, I cannot view my watched games.
Jimfinn is looking for regular doubles/triples/quads partners. Please contact him if you are interested!

I agree with everything that Jakewilliams say.

First, I think that we all agree that we would like to see more updates to the site. I am not talking about dozens of updates per year, but maybe 2 or 3 well thought updates. Maybe even 2 would be enough. Let's say Spring update and Autumn update. Each of those updates featuring a big main feature and several small features. That would make the site look a bit more professional. Imagine, a newcomer comes to the site and sees the list of past Autumn and Spring updates, and how each of those updates added a killer feature and several small features. That would encourage them to stay!

Second, with so few updates, why implement what is already available in the form of community add-ons? In my humble opinion this is both a way to waste the very scarce resources available and a way to piss the community members that spent their time doing that update. Apologies if that seems a bit unrespectful, but I imagine I would not feel very happy if I saw that the hours that I spent doing an add-on were useless because that add-on is now in the site. If the site had dozens of updates, that would be understandable. But it's difficult to understand that one of the few updates is exactly a mirror to something a community member already did.

Third, again with so very few updates, implement things that really make a difference. Don't add yet-another-spoil mode. Add things that bring a completely new dimension not present yet in CC! Like the Adjacent Attacks suggestion. It has been around so long and really would bring a new way of playing the site.

Fourth, XML. There are dozens of wonderful ideas in the Foundry about new maps. Unfortulately, they can't be developed because XML does not allow mapmakers to implement those ideas. For this reason I think that the site will greatly benefit from more XML updates. Just a few tag ideas that come to my mind in no particular order: Lighthouses for FoW, Dice Bonus, Reinforcement Only Borders, Game start messages, and, the biggest of them all, TRIGGERS.

I also agree that the Suggestions process is a bit obscure and not transparent at all (again, sorry if that offends someone. I say it with good intention. Not willing to criticize just for the sake of it, but pointing what I think could be improved) and that some feedback from time to time would be nice.

Anyway, here is my list of suggestions that I would like to see implemented:
1-Adjacent Attacks https://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewt ... 35&t=51364
2-More XML tags so mapmakers can do different and more varied maps viewtopic.php?f=127&t=103961
3-Upkeep Costs: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=140398
4-Infected Neutrals: viewtopic.php?f=535&t=40294
5-Increase to 12 players viewtopic.php?f=535&t=113234
6-Adjacent Attacks
7-More XML tags
8-Adjacent Attacks
9-More XML tags
10-Adjacent Attacks

I am really enjoying the Adj.Attacks games i have been participating in & would like to see this implemented in the Game menu options. Often players [including myself] forget they are playing AA, & this can cause the game to slow down while reparations restore order & fair play.

I agree. Also I think zombie spoils sounds like a good idea. So here is my (short) list:
1: Adjacent attacks
2: Zombie spoils
