Alarm sounds?

Postby spaceghst44 on Sat Mar 01, 2008 2:28 pm

What about adding an alarm sound to let you know when it is your turn? so if you are doing something, you can listen for the "Ding" and know it is your turn to go..... help with speed games.

Sound Notification in speed games

Postby Arbotross on Sun Apr 20, 2008 10:16 pm

Concise description:
  • Add a sound Notification for when you are able to take your turn during a speed game

Specifics:
  • Sometimes when people play speed games(especially those with more than a couple people) they tend to wander away from the game and often come back near the end of there turn if at all during there turn, often prolonging games or even outright deadbeating. This could be turned off in the game settings menu and the sound could also be changed in the same place

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • This will make speed games more reliable and quicker for those who can't focus on one thing for hours and could potentially stop people from deadbeating

Suggestion - Sound

Postby wrwiii12 on Mon Jun 16, 2008 12:32 pm

I would love to hear some sounds coming out of the game. This would be really helpful when you are playing multiple games at once and a sound is made letting you know it is your turn in another game. This would make it so that people do not have to wait on you and that you do not miss turns.

I was just thinking that this would be nice. If you have a speed game up in another tab or another window and you are doing other things, it would be nice if there was a sound to tell you that its your turn.

SUG: Turn Start Sound

Postby jaytorade on Thu May 07, 2009 12:02 am

Concise description:
  • At the start of each players turn, a sound will be played. This tone will alert them that they can start their turn.

Specifics:
  • When the turn starts a tone plays, maybe CC could provide a few pleasant ones to pick from.

This will improve the following aspects of the site:
  • Players will be able to walk away from the computer or do something on another screen while they wait for their turn.
  • This will really be useful in speed games when people would like to walk away from the computer or do something else on the internet for a few minutes. But if the player before them suddenly ends their turn quicker than expected valuable time or a whole turn could be missed.

I know some of you will say. Well pay more attention. But i think it allow everyone to better utilize their time if they can safely do some other stuff while waiting and will be alerted by a sound when they have to get back to the CC action.

As long as it is an option that we can turn on/off then I have no issue with it. But if it was mandatory I probably would never log on again, hate being forced to hear stuff I didn't choose just as much as lack hates pop-up.
