[Invites] Invite Players Upon Game Creation

Postby ronc8649 on Wed Nov 11, 2009 2:32 am

Concise description:
  • Put a box where one could invite people to games while creating them
  • One for each team

Specifics:
  • while you are creating games, you can invite people, making the site smoother and faster

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • will make the site faster by allowing in-creation invites
  • will prevent unwanted joinings without using a password except for back-up

rather than inviting someone, then going back to the game, and inviting someone else, it would be nice if it were like gamefinder with more boxes.

for dubs, it would be only 1.
for trips, it would be 2.
for quads, it would be 3.

just thought it would save alot of time for those of us who use it alot!!

thanks.


Use tabs. That way you dont have to keep going back to that game in waiting for players you just click that 'invite player' link 3 times with middle mouse button and off you go.

Such a good idea. The back and forth from starting to inviting (as you mentioned) is a royal pain. If there could be a drop down of friends and/or space to type in a player's name...all at once, would be great.

Sure. I don't see why not.
The invitation function already exists, and there should be no problems with having the invitations on the game creation page since you can batch it and add the players after the creation event for the game.

You have a vote from me for this.

I support this idea fully especially for tournaments. Like most threads here it will take a while to be looked at.

It is a good, practical idea, especially for tournaments. I've been in the situation where I'm creating dozens of tournament game, then I have to go and get those games and invite people one by one. Like so many other suggestions, it would probably take a lot of work. Still, a good idea, and I'm sure if you have a clear finalised proposal it will get a look in.

Cheers, JB ;)
