In-game Notes to Self

From WarfishWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Being able to make notes for yourself for any given game would be nice. and, even nicer, it would be great to be able to see these notes on the "play" tab for each game.

How much space would you think is enough? I was thinking of combining this with the Player Defined Game Table Labels suggestion. Basically if for each game you could type 60-100 characters if information would that be enough? Perhaps that would be enough to remind you "attacking red.." or "ally with blue".. that way some people could use it for that purpose and some people could use it for game table lables.

[edit] Discussion

I think having 60-100 characters would be plenty even for some of the larger games. Steven, if you were to combined this idea with the Game Table Labels, would these notes be seen only in our Game Tables list or would they also be seen within each game? Meaning, if you left a note for a game, would you see it in a column next to that game or would you have a tab within the game you could click to see your note(s)? Perhaps you can do both? --Step.On.Me 04:47, 16 May 2008 (UTC)


phil20070328031522 wrote into support at warfish.net about this issue too and had a great suggestion:

I just had a thought!

Plus Members should be able to private message themselves, to remind
themselves of the strategy they are using! For example: "Self, you're not
taking a country this turn so you can turn in cards after everyone else!"
or "Self, you should take Australia"... 

It's just a thought, and wouldn't be hard to implement. I just worry that
with a few games going, I might forget my plans! 

I went ahead and made the change (was a super simple change) to see how it would go... please give it a try.. it seems to do the job. Thanks phil20070328031522! --Steven 23:18, 29 May 2008 (UTC)



So far the secret messages to myself have been great. I have one further suggestion for this, and that is to change the message background to another color so that it's easier to depict from the other secret messages. Great suggestion, phil20070328031522! Keep up the great work, Steven! --Step.On.Me 04:02, 22 June 2008 (UTC)



Thought of another suggestion. I'd like to be able to hide certain secret messages once I'm through with them, especially if they're ones I sent to myself, which is what this thread is about. Is there any way to implement this?
