[GF] Saved Searches in Game Finder

Postby Luke035 on Wed Jan 03, 2007 2:15 pm

Concise description:
  • Have the ability to save searches.

Specifics/Details:
  • This can be done by allowing users to personalize the game finder page so that the default search is something that they prefer.
  • An additional, and probably better option, is to allow users to save multiple (3-5) searches in game finder.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • This would give users a more friendly experience.

I like it! maybe put game preferences in "my settings" under the personal menu. then when you went to join game, start game, or game finder, those would automatically be selected and you could change them if you wanted to tweak it a little bit. What say you andy?

even easier, on the 'Start Your Own Game' page, there could be an option to "save as default" for whatever options you happen to be in the mood for at the time.

I would like to have them both......say, have them in the settings menu but have the "save as default" option in the create games (and start your own and game finder pages) as an easy change that will automatically save it in your settings.

I like both of these suggestions!

Perhaps you could save multiple favorite game types and have a drop down list of 3 or 5 that you could select. You could have a screen that lets you pick the options and create a name for them (which could be convenient for tournament creation)...then when you search or create a game you could select any of the saved preferred settings or do it manually like we currently do.

I like the drop down menu idea. I have a few different types of games that I like to play and also do alot of tournaments. If I could select a few different types and name them (by tournaments or whatever) it would be really helpful. Maybe even make that apart of the tourny privs or something.

*bump* glad to come across this thread. favorite settings for the game finder would be awesome. the favorite settings idea is great but if it's too time consuming to do, at least make the default 'waiting' as soon as possible. i don't get why 'any' is the default. fave settings could be the next step.

Suggestion: Saving searches in Game Finder

Postby Floppie on Wed Aug 08, 2007 10:24 am

The title should pretty much sum this up. It gets kind of tedious trying to narrow down the open games selection using the search because it takes several minutes of checking maps and options every time I want to do it.

My suggestion to improve on this is to give us a way to save a handful of searches.

Beacuse new maps and options are regularly added, it would probably be best if clicking on a saved search would reload the search page with the saved options selected. This would allow the user to edit the search to include new maps they like and so on.

"Find other games like this" link

Postby Tyrion81 on Tue Aug 14, 2007 10:10 pm

I couldn't find a suggestion like this so here goes.

I was thinking that in the "My Games" lists or perhaps on the actual game screen with the map you could have a link somewhere which says "Find other games like this".... This link would take you to the game finder results page showing all other games that are the exact same game type and map that you clicked the link from and that are awaiting players.

I know this would be handy for me because I often like to play similar game types to games that I've just completed (or am still active in) and it can be a bit tedious going to the game finder all the time and filling in all the options.

From a coding perspective this should be fairly simple to implement and would actually be useful. I can't really see any downsides to this suggestion.

Idea stolen from eBay :D

Hey misterman,

I have seen that actually... I just figured this could be a small, easy one to integrate, especially for those of us who can't be bothered with Greasemonkey :D

I agree, that would be good. Or a sort feature so that you could list the games by type, sequence... so on. I've spent some time looking for those classic, sequential, flat rate games.

Game Finder (saved searches)

Postby jwrules547 on Sat Sep 01, 2007 5:53 pm

Anyway you can set it up to save your settings for "Game Finder"
Everytime i have to click 7 or 8 boxes to look for a game.
Also sometimes i do it fast and click one wrong box ending up in a game i didn't want to be in.

Thanks
