Programming Link to invite players after creating a game

Postby DaveH on Sun Aug 11, 2013 1:07 pm

When you create a game you get a message saying "Success.....Created game etc" followed by the game number.

If the game number were linked so that if you click on it you could go directly to that game, you could then simply invite the players directly rather than go through the process of copying the game number and then performing a find. The above programming change will therefore be an improvement in certain conditions where you are creating individual games.

Usually, as a TO, multiple games are created and then they are all found collectively to enter the players or write a pm to send joining instructions. However there are tournaments such as two of mine Conquer Club Poker Tournament and Noughts and Crosses where games are created individually and players then need to be invited. The above would greatly simplify the process.

Also, when players mis-join and you have to create a replacement game, it would also be an improvement.

(I have also posted this on the Available Tools/Enhancement forum as I was uncertain where it should go)

While an addon could do this, it would be simpler to just integrate this to the site. If that's what you're looking for, you should post a thread in Suggestions.

It was in Tools suggestions and Bugs and was suggested that it was moved, so I copied it to Tools Development and Available Tools and Enhancements. I had a message that as it was duplicated, one was moved to Archives. I understand it should be an easy programming change rather than an Add-On or Tool but don's know what forum that belongs in.

Perhaps another suggestion should be to make the forums a bit easier for members to navigate?
