Fine tuning: Game finder / tournament search [Suggestion]

Postby alstergren on Mon Jun 21, 2010 3:06 am

Concise description:
  • Change the game finder / tournament search by categorizing tournaments by year started.

Specifics/Details:
  • An additional menu where searches are made year-by-year is added.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • The number of tournaments is increasing pretty quickly. Now, searching for a tournament - even by a short cut search (i.e. hitting a few letters in the menu when one knows the tournament name) - is pretty tedious. By adding a menu allowing searches by year (starting year of the tournament - would suggest that each tourney is labeled by the tournament directors) would allow easier searches (usually one aren't that interested in a tournament that has been over for two years). This is just a clarity/interface suggestion. But think it would be good in the long-run. Also, perhaps no need to back-track. All ongoing/finished tournaments could just be put in a 2006-10 category. Then all tournaments starting from 1 January 2011 could get a 2011 label.

I think that what you want is that once you pick the year it automaticly updates itself so that only tournaments within that year are shown. Kind of like when filling out an online form and picking your state and the cities changing to those within that state. Which i think would mean a change of software of some kind, since the search doesnt start "sorting" things until after you submit your search.

Exactly. But doesn't even have to be a pcick/update - could be a madatory way to sort the tourneys.

Merged similar suggestions.

I agree something needs to be done about that rediculous drop down.

Here are the options I'm considering to replace the drop-down:
  • A partial match text field (it's easy to implement!)
  • An ajax autocomplete text field
  • A popup tournament finder next to a text field (like [find a member] for usernames)

I think we should also add a [find games] link to tournament tabs (like on the ratings page).

Please make it typable. Those who play via IPhone have to scroll for f***ing ever to find tournaments. Partial match or Ajax is perfect.

Perhaps partial match + a [search tournaments] link that takes you to the tournament finder (like the [browse maps] link)?

I like this concept, but the [browse maps] link seems to be a dead end, that is, you cannot select a map there and carry that selection back to the game finder page (can you?).

Even its these sugestion are older then mine-i manage to create description ,and also visualy explane how these need to work, unfortunatly lack dont look on submited sugestion,then he will see how these can be implemented, i belive in easy way.

by qwert on Fri Feb 05, 2010 1:15 am

Plain and simple, need to create two tournament boxes-in one all finished,and in other Active tournaments.
With big explosion of more and more tournament,its become step by step hard to find active tournament to check tourny stats.
Every time i need to scrool and scroll up and down to find what i want to find.

These is mine post in these topic, and from these,i realised that in these topic,idea will not be discused, and i decide to create mine own sugestion,with description and explanations.

By partial match, I assumed you meant there would be AJAX to return the partially matched tournament names, and a user could select from them.

Also, moved to implemented.
