Notes on players within client

  • Hey ladies and gets,

    quick idea from the esteemed beloved by all and anointed by the holy Spaghetti Monster Emperor Ischmalud.
    Simply put why cant I leave a little note within my client on a players profile.

    e.g. if a player was caught multiaccounting - id like to remind myself of that so I keep an eye out in case I get paired with that individual down the line

    similar for GM.......people....

    or also on the upside, was such and such a reliable ally etc etc.

    Dunno seems like a simple thing to do and would cut down a lot of furstration by people who are bit more engaged with the maps.

    Anyway thats just my two meatballs on the matter


    Be well and have a healthy bowl of pasta

    9.eco farm

    10. exploiter

    11. Melee guy

    12.S&S

    14. Plane swarm

    15. zerg rush

    17.multis

    18.friendpack min <10

    19.friendpack max >10

    20. God of war - ask him to be his DPS

  • 6. it is a girl!!

    Firstly and foremost this is discriminatory towards girls... Usually girls who play this type of games are as good/bad as the boys who do.

    secondly I feel a multichoice list would not give enough options for a real notes you have games that give you e.g. 1000 characters to put a notes. But as Rotekatze also states nothing stops you one advice however use UserIDs for such notes else you'll lose track due to namechanges

    hehe , lets start to analyze


    if people will start to write their own descriptions of others- woudl it not be discriminative to keep such a comments on bytro server. Lets say description like that:" the worst motherf..... you can imagine. backstabbing, lying,. pay s...loads of GMs to win. useless pri..... Kill him on spot". Well if bytro is ok with keeping this on their server.



    dividing players into girls an boys is not discriminative unless you want it to be like that that - then you an assume only bad things and doing that is discriminative for accused person. More discriminative is backstabber or exploiter. I prefer to do diplomacy with girls as they are more reliable partners.

    Dividing players into any sub category is discriminative, male/female more so, as I know of many female players who have been bullied and harassed the moment it is know by their male counterpart who suddenly realise their usual bravado and chest beating isn't going to work.


    While I do not disagree a place to keep notes could be useful as Narmer says a drop down list would be too restrictive and free text would be limited. So paper and pen is actually the best solution.

  • Well if bytro is ok with keeping this on their server.

    Bytro and most online games only truly care if you hurt other people/spread false news/extremism. On a private notepad you can't do those stuff so you can write what you want there. Same with alliances chats on this game.As long as nobody reports it you can talk all the way you want. There are many alliances that don't inforce the strict chat rules we need to inforce. As long as no report is send in we wont take action on alliance chat as we don't monitor them.

    interesting

    does it mean that if I have rival alliance in my server I sent a mole to them. Then I wait for them to start an alliance game and report on of the participants using my mole in an alliance to do that? He reports target when target is insulting/laughing at players from an alliance playing against him. Hmm. I would say that alliance chats should be exuded from any kind or mod interference . You can always quit alliance if you do not like the way they treat you. Then you will not see a chat any more.

  • well I had one in my 500 map, she was very loyal to her loosing friends until I focused war effort only on her and showed her others are using her to buy a time for themselves. Took her some time to digest it but we made a peace and it lasted that way till she become AFK for good. I had no need to fight her as her word meant more to me than my fear of her attacking me.


    Other thing was she did not have strategy to defeat me so even with backstab she could not hope for win and we both knew it.

  • Yeah,in one of my maps,I am playing as Sweden,and Germany,my ally (apparently a girl) was very generous with me. She currently has a very large empire,she absorbed AH,Serbia,most of France,BElgium,Netherlands,Switzerland and Northern Italy. She let me take Naples,for wheat,as I had a wheat shortage.

    Boys can do this too xd it all depends if you actually go into conversation with your allies and how much of allies you guys truly are instead of e.g. we have a vague agreement not to attack one another
