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.

Nicely done. That will make things much easier.
Now is not the time to divide ourselves, to relish in letters by men long dead. Now is the time to come and work together in order to bring this country onto the right track. We are all citizens of this country, it is time to treat eachother as equals.

Indeed! Thought I was crazy for a while before it struck me that it probably wasn't me.... :D

Using game finder checking your tourney is a quick way to see if all games in a round has been completed. Without it, one has to check every individual game.

Nice update.

I have another few suggestions however.
-Maybe you can list under the hide/show tab, also what time still is left for the invite to run out, so you can beforehand know exactly when it runs out.
-And it would be nice for tournament organisers to have the chance to either cancel an invitation or to send a new 1 before the old 1 has expired. Now you have to wait untill the old 1 expires untill you can send a new 1 to the same player. That results in a amount of time in which the player can't join the game.
