I'll just have to live without it for now. I don't want to download greasemonkey just for CC.

You do realize of course, that my script to Confirm the Drop of a Game is a Grease Monkey script? So, if you're using that - you're already using Grease Monkey *lol*.

I don't have Grease Monkey. Right now, every click of the mouse is closely monitored. That's why I said i'd hate to install grease monkey just for use here on CC.

I just started a tournament and noticed that as a tournament organizer you can drop games (in Waiting for Players status) created by mistake. Not sure which drop occurs if you are also IN that game. Does it keep the game and just pull you out or does it drop the game completely.

I'll figure that out when I update this script - right now it only does confirmations on the Waiting Games (mygames2) page. I was planning on merging this into my saved searches script. This allows me to do that AND cover both pages.

I don't know when I'll have the new version up - but it could be soon, check back for updates !!!

"Are you sure?" prompt for 'drop game' button

Postby markspencer on Tue Jan 08, 2008 7:13 pm

It may just be me but several times now I've hit 'drop game' by accident and it's really frustrating! I'm so used to clicking 'enter game' that I do it by habit. If there was a confirmation box for it that would be awesome!

Anyone else agree? :D

Just to save wicked copying and pasting this is a suggestion.

But yes I do agree I used to do it all the time. Got so bad people used to think I was wimping out of playing them when all the time I was just a n00b.

I've never liked the drop game link either. I think instead of a confirmation button, the drop game should be moved to a different location. That link is in the place where you normally click to enter a game, so if you are on "Games Awaiting Players" instead of "Active Games" without realizing it then you end up dropping the game when trying to enter. :?

Until this little thing gets implemented...

This is a post I made about Greasemonkey BOB, but it works the same way as long as you replace BOB and it's descriptions with "Drop Game Confirmation" and it's descriptions, as well as the BOB link with this one instead:
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/14245
I do recommend you get BOB if you don't already have it though.
hecter wrote:BOB is a greasemonkey script that runs on CC pages. What greasemonkey scripts do is alter what the page looks like and what happens when something happens or when you do something, ect. ect. It's essentially a program that runs on Firefox. What BOB in particular does it it will give you all sorts of stats and information on your games. It will tell you how much the next set is worth, the number of territories you and your opponents have, how many armies per turn you guys are getting, ect. ect., as well as a few other neat feature. I would really recommend getting it, but first you must be using Firefox, and you have to download greasemonkey.
http://www.getfirefox.com
Download Firefox via that link.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/748
Download greasemonkey via that one (just click the big green button...).
After you've got greasemonkey installed, click this link:
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/13076
Now you've got BOB :D Just go in your game, and change the settings to what you want. Set your map opacity, chart type, text map, and all that stuff. But, remember, this will slow down your computer on some maps (Conquerman is particularly slow). If you want to turn it off, just look in the bottom right hand corner and click the little monkey. After you click him, he should be black and white and frowning. To turn it back on, just click him again to make him smile and in colour.

Now that you've got BOB (or do you?), there are a few other scripts you can get, such as the Dice Analyzer, Saved Searches, Clickable Maps, and an addon or two for Firefox as well, such as Conquertell. Check out the Plug-ins and Add-ons forum for these, and just post in there or in Q&A if you have any more questions :D

Drop Game Button

Postby RedRing on Fri Sep 10, 2010 4:02 pm

Suggestion: Can you make a prompt that asks if we are sure we wish to drop a game? Because the Drop Game Button looks so similar to the enter game button, I tend to subconsciously think it is the "Enter Game" button and press it in order to get a larger view of the map that I'm awaiting players in but end up dropping it. This may very well just be a problem that only I have, but it's happened a couple of times, or at least change the color of the font and move the drop game button to a different spot. Prompt is probably easier though...

Ok, where is this form, and how was I supposed to come across it? Because I am lost. I didn't see it mentioned in the forum guidelines.

When you clicked on "new topic", it handed the form to you. You promptly deleted it and posted in it's place.

Yes, fill out the form, guywhohasneverpostedinsugsbefore, I'm sure you will be back!

As to this suggestion, I think it is a goodone. A lot of the buttons on this site look similar, are placed in teh same location, etc. Perhaps we can get different colored buttons for different actions?

Drop Game Button Problematic

Postby DeathFirst on Tue Nov 30, 2010 9:56 am

Does anyone else have this problem?

When awaiting players for a game the "Drop Game" button is in the same place where "Enter Game" is for active games. I've inadvertently dropped games while awaiting players just because I wanted to look at the map and clicked where I would usually to do that. Maybe it's just a n00b mistake, but I was wondering if anyone else has this problem, and if so, how hard it would be to change.

Thanks for you time.

I've done the same thing more than a few times. Maybe an "Are you sure?" dialog would suffice.

This is how it is for everyone.

Once you are here longer, it should happen less frequently.
