Drop Game confirmation popup

Postby Granite26 on Sun Mar 04, 2007 7:09 pm

<Subject>: Drop Game confirmation popup

(hopefully this IS new?)


<Body>:

* Suggestion Idea:JS a confirmation popup before dropping from a game
* Specifics: Hard to get more specific
* Why it is needed: More than one person I've known has accidentally dropped a game while they were messing with it. It'd be easy and effective
* Priority** (1-5): 2, ish (not vital, but dumb easy)



**Note**

1 = Bottom of 'To Do' list
5 = Urgent, implement with next update

I'm assuming you know about the confirmation scripts for greasemonkey, but in case you don't there is all the information about greasemonkey...once you have the confirmation script, you can edit to confirm whatever you want (for example, i got rid of the confirmation for auto-attack)



http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6672

it talks a little about greasemonkey there

http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6672

and that is the fix because of lacks stupid (but loved) update

http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewto ... 01&start=0

that is the collection of all the greasemonkey scripts

explains what greasemonkey is in general, for Mozilla Firefox

Confirm/Cancel option for clicking "Drop Game"

Postby killthejoe on Sat Nov 17, 2007 10:24 pm

Suggestion Idea/Specifics:

I would like to see a small option that pops up and says "Confirm" or "Cancel" when you click "Drop Game" on one that is awaiting players.

Why it is needed?

I've done this twice now and it's very frustrating when you've got the players you want and are almost ready to start the game and you accidentally click Drop Game. I know I should be more careful, but all that is needed is a simple confirmation button.

Thank you.

I'm not promising anything, but I'll take a look into this issue tomorrow. If I can create a Grease Monkey script - I'll post it. Hopefully, it won't be too difficult.

I'm working on this as a Grease Monkey script. I have yet to figure out how to capture the the anchor (href) object that drops the game.

It's this simple:

    Capture anchor object.
    Add listener for the click event.
    Add confirm box.
    - Yes = go to drop game page.
    - No = do nothing.

I'm on a bloody laptop atm - trackpads have an annoying habit of clicking when you're only trying to move the pointer!!

I've made private games and I've wanted to copy and paste the game number into a PM to my friends. I'll try to select the game number and somehow click on it and it drops the game.

Would it be too much for ask for something similar for the 'end fortification' button?

Just a though...

Now there's a good idea. Also, End Attacks would be nice.
