Game Invites 2.0

Postby lackattack on Wed Jul 21, 2010 10:17 pm

I have good news - the games invitations system has been given a major overhaul!

A new My Games tab
No more flooded inbox! Invitations are no longer sent by private message. Instead, there is a new tab on the My Games page for invites (as suggested by ubersky). If you have any invitations a short message will appear on the active games tab to get your attention, similar to when you have ratings to leave.

Notifications, notifications
Email notifications are now sent our when you receive a game invitation. There are also notifications when an invite you sent gets declined or expires (as suggested by lgoasklucyl). Both of these notifications can be turned off and on via the Game Settings page.

See who is invited
Wherever you see a game listed with a reserved spot you can now click [show / hide] to see who the spot is reserved for (as suggested by General Brewsie).

Private Message bug fixed
In related news, we finally fixed an annoying bug (reported by slowreactor) where private message folders would think they contain more messages than what's actually there. This was due to a mistake in the way we had been expiring private messages that used to be sent for game invitations.

Very nice. :)

The "Invitatons" tab could use a spelling correction.

Great add-on.

Much easier to join games, instead of getting a list of 50 in your inbox.
