With a premium membership I've started joining a lot of games and needed something to help me keep track of them all and let me know when to play. I looked around and found some nice programs for Windows computers and a Firefox extension but I was really looking for a dashboard widget.
I didn't find one so I went ahead and made one myself. Thought I'd post it here to share with others. If someone else has already made one, let me know and I can withdraw this one.
The widget can be downloaded at http://www.wussell.com/widget/ConquerClubWidget.zip
Once loaded up, you can flip the widget and enter in your Conquer Club username to configure the widget for you. You may also enter in other people's usernames to keep track of their games as well.
Once configured, the widget will display the username, their list of games, the status of the games and round number, along with a summary of how many games you are currently waiting on, ready to play, and eliminated in.
Each game can be clicked on to jump you to that game (provided you are signed in, of course).
The widget is sized to show four games but if you have more than four, an automatic scroll bar is added to the widget to allow you to scroll through the rest of the games in the list.
The status icons are the green dot for ready, the yellow arrow for playing, and the red square for waiting, and faded red square for eliminated.
The widget will update to your current RSS feed every time you open the dashboard or if the dashboard is open every minute.
Let me know what you think. There's probably some changes that need to be made and I welcome any suggestions you all have for it.
