"YOUR TURN!" bell

Postby maxfaraday on Tue Dec 06, 2011 1:05 am

Concise description:
    - In speed games, a bell would ring when it's someone turn (like in the live chat when someone posts something).
    - (credit goes to perchorin for this one)
    It should be possible for the user to turn this feature on and off;
    some people might like it, others find it annoying.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
    1- This would prevent people from unwillingly missing a turn, which means that:
    - no one will be pissed off
    - no one will be antagonized
    2- I have to go to the fridge to grab another beer.

Game 4158524
Game 4454996

You don't even know the half of it. I think I've lost 40 speed games in the past year because I forgot I made them.

Seems like it would be a simple thing to add, and even better if you have the option of turning it on and off. Good suggestion!

wow, lay off.

You realize that if it weren't for Geger's post, I wouldn't have commented and the responses to my posts wouldn't have happened. Essentially, we're bumping this thread so your suggestion can get more views.

But no, if you want to be a dick, then fine.

A bell in casual games is good too for "semi speed" games, where some turns are taken within 1/2-1 hour.
So we can still work on computer, and don't have to refresh the browser every time (as an example).

I've lost scores of speed games because I lose interest and forget to play or check they've started.

Audible sounds won't be integrated into the site (as they are tacky and lack doesn't like them). However it may be possible to get someone to write a script for you. I'll move this to the Tech Suggestions if you'd like.

Like perchorin suggested, this could be turned on/off (being set to off by default).
I'll add this in the OP.

Audible sounds are already integrated in the site.
In the live chat.
Anyway thanks for your proposal, if this suggestion doesn't get more support from the CC community, I'd be glad you'd move it to the "Tech Suggestions".
