- either on the last page of the game creation process OR (and/or?) on the "Awaiting Players" page, there should be a form where you can invite players to come join. ideally, this form would list your friends with check boxes by their names so you can auto-add them to the distribution of the PM that goes out.
This will improve the following aspects of the site:
- facilitating the creation and joining of games.
- a side benefit is that this gives high ranks an easy way to invite other "officers" to come play, eliminating the need for a "filter" against lower ranking players- another suggestion that has been made but rejected. another way to skin that particular cat!
