Ability to invite self to games

Postby DoomYoshi on Mon Sep 03, 2012 1:43 pm

This used to already be a feature. Whoever suggested and supported that this feature should be removed should be permabanned. This is fucking atrocious.

I've found that you have to change the capitalization of the first letter of your username. For me, I have to type in Tkr4lf to get it to work. So it should work for you if you send the invite to doomYoshi.

That is quite interesting.

Sure, no problem. I actually found that out in a previous suggestion about this very thing. Somebody else posted what I posted and I've been able to invite myself since then.

Hope that helps.

It's pretty interesting what parts of this site are case sensitive ... ever tried to sort a thread by author? Also, TourStats (a plug-in) has a similar issue. Add this to the list, I guess.

Yeah, I posted something about this when it was brought up in the clan forum. You just need to change capitalization.

Actually though, I don't know what Doom was getting so cranky about. Was he mad that we can invite ourselves? Anyway, move this thread!! ;)

Technically. However it's strange that it's coded against inviting your own username.
