Nice work, as always.

I don't understand why I can't reserve spots in speed games though :-s

My guess is that people would reserve a spot for somebody who they know won't join, and purposely delay the start of the game...

not sure where to add this this was the only thread i could find really on the reserve spot feature. Also not sure if its already been said. But i would like a pm sent to me if the person i invited rejected my invite cause i was un aware of the rejection until some random people that i didnt really want in the game joined up. Also maybe in italics show who it is you have reserved the spot for. After reserving quite a few games i kinda got my teams mixed up as well in which games i wanted them in. Also there should be a feature where you pick 3 names and you get the choice to add those 3 partners to multiple games without having to re choose them for every game. Just a thought, this feature is really really nice though :)


ps- also maybe 48 hours instead of 24? just incase that person invited doesnt see the pm or were in a hurry and dont read the pms... it happens not the only one to have a reserved spot not takin in time and someone else joined at first i didnt even know it was only 24 hours thought i had longer.


It was brought up and i thought it was a good idea if someone rejects or doesnt join in time the spot should stay reserved and a pm sent asking would you like to reserve this spot for another player before opening it up to the public.

A great move forward, I like it lots. =D> =D> =D>

For the next update, can we have the option of selecting those off our Friends list to invite i.e u click the invite, u can then add in people by name, or mass invite ur friends by checking a box against their name? This just makes things a lot slicker in inviting ur regular homies:-)

Still, it's a definite improvement, who said things never changed around here (apart from me :oops: :D)

(1- I was making games, and putting in people for reserves, and a player I didn't want to be in it joined. This in itself is not a problem because I can always just restart, but after reserving 7 people I realized this. Then I had to talk to them and tell them to drop it and why. Any way to fix that?


Maybe the invites could be sent out from the creation page.

That way, any slots needed for friends can be reserved prior to clicking 'Create'


There is a risk that someone can slip into the game before you reserve all the spots, but we might add the ability to reserve multiple spots at once in the future. I'd prefer that over adding invites to the start a game page, which could encourage more game starting instead of joining.

barterer2002 wrote:Or at the very least notify the TO that this player isn't accepting invites.


There is currently no way to see invitations you have sent or whether they are rejected. This feature could also be added in the future.

Beckytheblondie wrote:I join a quads game with team 1 reserved by creator. I invite three members to join me on team two. One of my invites declines leaving an open spot. Creator quickly after invites an unknown player to join my team, I think. I didn't invite another player.

Is this legal?


Yes :)

potiusmori wrote:Oh... Idea/Annoyance I'm seeing with the reservation system.

I've seen a few games now where it's set up as follows:
(2 player map)
slot 1: -open-
slot 2: -reserved-

Is there any point in maintaining reservations when no other players are holding slots (outside of possibly a tournament game)? Shouldn't the game, upon last "active" player leaves the reservations be removed/game destroyed, similar as to what happens when the last player leaves a game without reservations?


That game should have been destroyed :? If you find another example please post the game number and I'll check it out.

Vertigo wrote:One solution that would help with missing tournament games and with excessive PMs might be to add another tab/link at the top of MY GAMES page that says something like INVITED. Then you get a page where you can see all the settings, etc. of the invited game including if it is a tournament game.

Then when you are invited to a game, the MY GAMES link could say [1 NEW] similar to when you get a PM.


Interesting... We could add a tab to My Games for Invited Games as well.

So that you save a click? I guess so, as long long as it doesn't complicate the PM too much.

Is it possible to the TrialPay pay system in other countries than the USA? Or has it just offers from only the USA?

USA has the most offers but most countries have as well. Try clicking on the TrialPay button and see what offers they list for you :idea:

Dear Mods / Webmaster,

On 16Sep09, I signed up to your offer with TrialPay, and Jamster specifically.
I understood two factors, as laid out by your terms and conditions:
1) That this was a non-contributory offer (i.e.: that I would give my personal details and phone number, in lieu of payment), and that therefore costs would be nil.
and
2) That I would then receive premium membership.

Within a few minutes of signing up I received a number of messages from Jamster, essentially inviting me, displaying offers, and a final text informing me that I had been charged 6 dollars on my phone bill for the privilege of joining Jamster (and my phone credit balance was duly deducted that amount, again within 10-15 minutes of me filling in the TrialPay details on CC). At no point did I reply to any of the offers/ texts (I am aware that replies for pay-to-play mobile phone offers often are used as proof of the "purchaser" agreeing to terms and conditions, and therefore liable for payment).

It is now the 1st of October, and I have logged a ticket 539504 to that effect.

I have had no replies, except to say that this is being handled.
I have yet to see my premium membership.

I'm not really upset about the 6 bucks. It's not very much money at all. But the inaction over 15 days on your part; the fact that a free service has been turned out to be otherwise (and therefore entirely misleading), and the final straw that I still have not gotten my premium membership, does rankle somewhat.

Please could this be looked into forthwith.

To add insult to injury, Jamster keep sending me texts, to the effect that I am subscribed and will keep having monies debited until I unsubscribe (which I have now done, I did wait for you, but two weeks is overlong).

I've tried calling Jamster to explain, but just keep getting automated messages. It is highly frustrating, and does not reflect well on you at all.

I don't want to create a fuss or a scene, but I have my principles, and I am not feeling very positive about this.

I think this is a great site, and perhaps this is out of your hands in your " partners' ", but seriously.
Please sort this out.

Regards,
Jude
