What country / continent do players live in notification

It would be nice to choose people that are awake at more a less the same time as you. Waiting for America to wake up makes playing games in turn a nightmare

It would just need a comprehensive player stat index where you can click on the playername to see location, (and activity percentage, time taken per move, games won, games played, ranking, score, favourite continent etc.)

The other option would be a fairly simple google maps integration (i.e. like http://www.frappr.com/) which wouldn't even take up bandwidth because it is offsite.

the other option would be a simple "area specific" flag for each game and then just force people to fill in a timezone in their profile.

many many ways to do it.

We can already write where we're from in our forum profiles. Flagging a game is cool, and when private games go in that would be enforceable?

I still say add a line of text to the game descriptions. "Timezone X players only please." Not a guarantee, but a stopgap measure.

Why can't we get all the other countries to set their clocks to our (London) time then we will all be awake during the game of online risk!
