There was another similar suggestion to just allow "skip game". It was a while ago, cannot remember what ever came of it.

Enqueue the turn [Submitted]

Postby Falkomagno on Thu May 27, 2010 7:03 am

Enqueue The turn
  • Allows the option "queue", next to Begin turn

Specifics:
  • Queuing the turn, means that if you click that option, the game will no appear when you click the link "jump to your next playable game", but the next in order. Anyway, if you click My games the queued game will appear ready to begin.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • In some games, specially in freestyle, you will prefer to delay the begining of the turn. If this option is implemented, the annoying proccess of go to begin games, and choose the game will dissapear.
  • The ultra-annoying fact of find the game which is desired to delay, over and over again, every time that the link "jump to your next playable game" it's pressed, will dissapear
  • The link "jump to your next playable game." will enhance its utility
  • Where there is a lot of active games, this option it's actually a must, for strategic purpouses

I think there have been similar suggestions asking for the same thing. If I understand this correctly, it seems like a great idea. I'll keep an eye on this one. Doesn't look like it would be that difficult to code.

Cheers, JB ;)

Yes, this has been suggested before, and, when OP was still around, it asked around at one thing people wanted most. This was it

That's a great idea....also for games that you can't think of anything and you decide to take the turns of the other first and then see again this game...

no further discussion needed, it's a great idea and would really come in handy for heavy team players who are waiting on teammates to discuss a game.

I like this idea, but even more, I like the idea of the "jump to your next playable game" link changing to a list of links to your playable games from which you can pick whichever one you want. (Hmm, maybe I should suggest this as a possible add-on instead....)

Postby ender516 on Thu Jul 01, 2010 6:41 pm

The details of this suggestion are getting a little vague in my mind because so many variations on a theme have been proposed, what with multiple topics merging and all. Should we be referring to what is now the first post? The "Skip game" checkbox isn't bad, but I like the idea of a list of game links to all the games that you could play now. Some information about the game could be displayed, or we could just rely on that addon that shows information about a game when you hover over a link.

I think having a link to every single game that is up would take up quite a bit of room. Especially for players in many games. Could you imagine if this was there when Highlander has 1200 active games?

Postby ender516 on Thu Jul 01, 2010 6:53 pm

Good lord, 1200? How do you play that many at once and not deadbeat? Even if you push your luck and miss two turns for every one you play, that's still 1200 turns in 72 hours, or 3.6 minutes per turn ... oh wait, if you play in 8 player games, your turn doesn't come up as often, but still,...
Well, anyway, perhaps the list could be in a scrollable window.

Well, i think what the original suggestion was, and the one lack is working on, is that this link will skip the game, say Game 345474, and go to your next one. Then it will keep going down your list of active games, leaving that 1 you skipped.
