[GF] Notification of Ignore On Entering Game

Postby Phx99 on Mon Jul 03, 2006 5:24 pm

Concise description:
  • Currently, the foe system works that you can not see what a foe posts in the forums, they can not post on your wall, and they can not join your games. But there is nothing stopping you from accidentally joining one of their games.

Specifics/Details:
  • What i want, is that when you accidentally go to join a game, which currently has a foe in it, a page will load up, similar to the page that comes up, when you want to create a game, which already has a game waiting with the same settings/map, but instead it will tell you that player X is on your foe list, and if you want to continue with joining this game.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • It will stop you from joining a game that you know will not be very fun, based on the fact you know you do not like the person that you have foe'd.

I'm gonna go one step further than you, Phx..

I think it would be extra special if, prior to joining any game, the pop up window could somehow correctly declare, "There is an idiot already in this game. Are you sure you still want to join?". That would be much better. Just my opinion. :D That would've come in really, really handy prior to my joining dugcarr1's game. (oops! Can I say that in here?--my bad!)

I have the same problem

Postby Scarus on Wed Jul 05, 2006 5:29 pm

I have the same problem in real life. Everytime I start to enter a strip club, Casino, or dougnut shop, I'd like to have my phone ring and Lack ask me if I really want to do this.....

Okay, Okay, Okay, that's silly. Sure, if I was sitting at a bus station, and a bunch of strippers came in and started to proposition me. That might be a problem with which I might need some help....lol. But, I think it's on me to avoid accidentally walking into the local nudie bar.

So far, I haven't accidentally joined any games with anyone I didn't want to play.......

I was under the impression that if a person was on your ignore list, you didn't even see games they were in on the game-list.
Perhaps it should be that way.

A bit of a bump, but I too want Dr. Jim's idea, or at least the option of it: to not see any games currently waiting for players with people on my ignore list.

Hmmm, I'm willing to block us from joining games with people on our ignore lists.

But I don't know about hiding the games. If someone invites you to game X and you can't find it it could lead to confusion...

That's why I mention the option, as it would then be something you can turn on or off.

In general, if I'm ignoring somebody, odds are that I'm not going to want to be in a game with them at all, even if I'm invited. I mean, there's probably a good reason (to me at least) why they're ignored. :)

Suggestion for Ignore list

Postby Squirly on Mon Jan 14, 2008 11:27 pm

Suggestion for Ignore list


* Suggestion Idea: A warning/reminder message for entering games containing players on your ignore list.

* Specifics: I think you should get a warning/reminder message if you try to join a game that already contains a player on your ignore list.

* Why it is needed: I know that players on your ignore list can't join games you are already in but I am not sure if you can join games where one of your ignorees is already in. I do not have my ignore list memorized so there is a good chance I might end up in another game with one of them if I just happen to join without analyzing everyone that has already joined. A warning/reminder type of confirmation "are you sure you want to join this game, 'player x' is on your ignore list" would ensure you never have to play with any of your ignorees again.

Wait a minute pascalleke & blitzaholic, you are both wrong.

I just noticed a game waiting for players that someone on my ignore list had already joined so I tried to join and I could.

Of course I dropped the game immediately.

I think a warning would be a nice feature.

It's been suggested before. You'll have to do a forum search and/or check the To-Do list to see if it's going to be implemented, I don't remember.

Re: Notification of Ignore On Entering Game *Pending*

Postby KLOBBER on Sun Jun 29, 2008 1:49 pm

I'd like to see some kind of warning if I ever try to enter a game with someone on my foes list.

However, I hope this doesn't become a restriction from joining any games with someone who happens to be on my foes list.

This would amount to a punishment for using the foes list, which would be pretty ridiculous.

Those on the foes list are offenders, and should be restricted, but those who use the foes list are victims, and should not be restricted simply for using the foes list.
