'Skip game' feature for 'Jump to next game' button *Done*

Postby Frop on Fri Nov 23, 2007 7:25 pm

Suggestion Idea: To have a 'Skip game' checkbox/toggle button on each Game page which makes the 'Jump to your next playable game' button skip the selected game(s) during the same browser session.

Specifics: Not much more than above, except that I could imagine having the necessary information stored in the browser's cookie.

Why it is needed: The idea is to (temporarily) hold off playing a turn in a game for various reasons. Sometimes you want to wait for your partner(s) to come online to discuss your next move, other times you just want to 'wait' for hot dice when you're gearing up for an important move.

The 'Skip game' setting would revert to unchecked once the browser session expires (exiting your browser, cleaning up your cookies, etc.). This would reduce the risk of any feature abuse or unintentionally missing turns.

Credits go to Wild Tiger for the original idea.

You can't do that in games in which it is your turn.

Imagine game #1 being your the game with the least time left and game #2 the second game, game #3 the third and so on (ordered chronologically). You want to skip game #1 however until your teammate comes online. Clicking 'Jump to next game' if you finish any other turn would repeatedly send you back to game #1.

If you would be able to 'skip' this game you would jump to game #2 (and after you take that turn to #3, #4, etc.) when you press the 'Jump to next game' button. Do you get what we're at now?

Multiple games running at the same time..

Postby Bruceswar on Sat Mar 29, 2008 4:41 am

Concise description:Jump to your next game button
  • Next Game Button! This button will put your desired game at the bottom of games ready to play rather than sitting at the top of your list if you do not wish to make a move at that time for strategic reasons or otherwise. For the same token you have 10 other games with moves ready to be made, but every time you click on Jump to my next game it takes you back to the game you do not wish to make a move in. For someone with many games having to click on my games all the time and manually select the games can get time consuming and old.

Specifics: End of the line button
  • End of the line button - Which will put the desired game on the end of your list of ready to play games. Currently they are sorted by time, but using this logic they still would be considering you would make all your moves you wanted to and the games would still come in the order of time

This will improve the following aspects of the site:Making moving around games easier
  • Ease of site use
  • Much more friendly game invironment

Thanks for the consideration

Yes but if you run a lot of games this is a ton of tabs... Some people have over 100 games running. Each tab will kill firefox.
