Viewing Notifier

From WarfishWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

I think it would be nice to have an indicator on the game page, perhaps as a part of the legend, to indicate that a player is currently viewing the board. It could be a little eyeball icon next to their name. The specific application I have in mind for this is determining if a "turn-in-progress" indicator actually means a turn is in progress and we have a deep thinker on our hands, or if someone just peeked in at their turn and left the 'Fish for a while.

  • Hmmm, not too sure about the View Notifier. This could change a lot of games and even delay them, especially in Foggy/Very Foggy games, and even more so when History is blocked. I see it as a bonus for sitting and watching Warfish and hitting refresh every 3 seconds during those types of games :p, if there was a Eyeball indicator then I know I would wait until there wasn't anyone watching before making my move (especially in the scenarios above). I like the idea of the "Turn-In-Progress" being displayed only during an actual move, but would have to be swayed if this was implemented for all players in the game. --Yertle 01:35, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
