[GC] Add chat auto-refresh to casual games

Postby natty dread on Mon Aug 23, 2010 9:16 pm

MOD EDIT: Changed OP to request this for all casual games, not just team games.

Concise description:
  • Add the speed game chat functionality, ie. the auto-refreshing chat, to casual games.

Specifics/Details:
  • The chat refreshes automatically every couple of seconds in speed games. I'd like this same thing on casual games.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • On team games, communication with your teammate(s) is often paramount. This is really difficult via the game chat though, since you have to click refresh map all the time to check if your teammate(s) have posted anything new in the chat. It is especially annoying if you're in a critical spot which requires long strategy discussions between moves.
  • This suggestion would make all that better.
  • If this suggestion is not implemented, puppies will cry. Don't make puppies cry.

Isn't the chat auto-refresh in speed games synced with the map refresh, i.e. it refreshes every 15 seconds?

15 seconds? I'm sure it's more often than that. I think.

Anyway, may be, but I still want chat auto refresh for casual teamgames.

Ok, ok, but that's beside the point.

The point is we need the same for casual team games.

I agree, this would be a good feature natty. You got any idea how often you would like the chat to refresh in casual games? Every 30 seconds? Every 5 minutes? Every hour? Good simple practical suggestion... the kind I like. :)

The same interval as in speed games seems good to me.

I REALLY want this implemented. Nothing is worse that making a remark to someones post, only to realize they added to what they just said and, for example, made it more clear or fixed a fallacy in their statement before you posted, but you didn't notice it, because you didn't refresh before hitting the "send" button. ugh...

I'm going to go ahead and submit this. It's a simple, logical suggestion, and as the saying goes "simple things done well...."

Glad to see that this is a suggestion. Dismayed to see that it's down at the bottom of the suggestion pile.

Seems simple enough: They already do it in speed. Let's get this in

Auto Refresh Game Chat

Postby chapcrap on Sat Dec 07, 2013 11:50 am

Concise description:
  • Automatically refresh game chat in all games.

Specifics/Details:
  • Something like this already happens in speed games. Make it happen for all games.
  • Maybe every 20 seconds? 15 seconds?

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • This will allow for better in game communication in team games.
  • Allow for better in-game diplomacy for singles games.
  • Possibly reduce secret diplomacy because people will be aware of chatting in games instead of walls/PMs.
  • Help abate the need for the chatglove addon.

I wouldn't want to see this. It would undoubtedly add more lag to the game. I no longer play speed games at home because of the lag, and it's only this website; I'm running BT Infinity which is only available in limited parts of the UK so there should be no delay.

I use chatglove which does this already and I do not notice any lag from it.

That's because it's a script, not integrated into the site.

I don't find it quite usefull. Because when using BOB snapshots, it reverts to Live on each refresh. This could have been implemented better - in a form of "Autorefresh tick-box" which would be off by default, and user could decide to turn it on, if needed.
