Inviter time count down (not sure what to name that)

Postby happy2seeyou on Mon May 07, 2012 1:07 pm

Concise description:
  • Show a count down on current invites to invitees in your "Awaiting Players" tab

Specifics/Details:
  • After inviting a player to a game, show how much longer their invite is active for
  • There is already a count down in the invitees "Invitation" tab, this would be a count down in the player that did the inviting "Awaiting Players" tab.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • I have seen it happen many times where a player starts a team game and invites another player to be their teammate but the invitee doesn't accept the game within the 24 hr mark. The person that had invited another, doesn't know how much time is left on the invite and gets a random person joining as their teammate. If there was a count down in the original persons awaiting players tab, then maybe it can be avoided better, they could remove themselves and drop the game.

Not sure how to describe this really. Does that make sense?

Makes sense to me. Something similar has been suggested for those that send invites. Might as well just make them visible to everyone.

7 in favor, I make 8... Any reason we can't implement this soon? Seems easy enough

Where? It already gets a bit cluttered off to the right where I assume this would go. I like the idea, but not sure how it would look.
