Filter For Reserved/Unreserved Games To Game Finder (merged)

Postby kmhebert on Wed Jul 29, 2009 9:53 am

Add A Radio Button Or Checkbox To Game Finder
  • Reserved Games
  • Unreserved Games

Specifics:
Game Finder allows filtering of private and public games. This needs to be expanded to reserved and unreserved games as soon as possible. I would prefer a radio button with "unreserved" set as default but a checkbox would be acceptable and consistent with the current filter selection options.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • No one wants to wade through a huge list of reserved games to which they are not invited when looking for games to join
  • This would also allow people who know they are invited to a large number of games by the same player to easily search for a retrieve a list of such games to join

Please put this at the top of the priority list, I estimate this is a ten minute type of fix that could be implemented with the least effort.

I agree, however I think a better fix would be to just ELIMINATE any game that has no public openings from the public listings.

Move any games with ONLY "reserved" places into the private list. It could be "stacked", that is, reserves would come first/last in the list or it could be jumbled --- just depending upon what is easiest to program.

that already sort of happens....if you go to the join games page then it hides games and only says that it has been fully reserved.

So what is the general procedure for "making this actually happen"? This is an easy fix.

Reserve search exclusion

Postby Mike the Squirre on Sun Aug 02, 2009 6:18 pm

Ok this is short simple in to the point, in response to the new premium member option of inviting people to a game i propose that when searching for a game and you click public that it excludes games that are currently being reserved, as they are really not public and of no use to us looking for a game to join.

Lack will be reviewing the Reserveration feature in a week or two, and will look at possible improvements he can add to it!

Yes, exactly, games with no open slots are not really public, and are of no use to people searching for a game to join.

Well that is good, but it begs the question: why the wait? This is a fix that should have been made the same day as Reservations were created.

Makes sense - games with all spots reserved are not waiting for players, at least until any of those reserved spots come open - so they should not show up in waiting for players searches. Probably a simple fix to code too?

I hate to see something so fundamental and necessary get ignored for so long. Does anyone know the status of this request?

How do you keep the "reserved" status from appearing in the first place??? When I join a "public" game, I don't want to have to invite players.
