Feature Request: Friends List
Similar to how the site already has functionality for muting and blocking other players, we should be able to add them to a friends list so that tracking them down to send PMs is more convenient. It would also make hosting games with players you know you enjoy playing with much easier. I don’t believe that this feature is currently in the issue tracker, and it seems like it would be very easy to implement given the current muting and blocking features already in place.

How should this feature work?
- Do you need to take a"note" for each "friend"?
- Do you need a visual-hint behind the player Name that you have him in your friends-list?
- Do you need a "friends-only" option for games?

- Or do you just need a separate space on our settings-page (or profile) with all your "friends" listed?
- Is this a private-list or is this public-information for each player visiting your profile?

Depending what you want from this feature there are quite a few things to "implement".

I would be satisfied with a very simple model, with just a separate space on the Settings page (just next to the Blocked/Muted list). And of course, a button next to each player's Profile name so you can add them.

The list would thus be private.

I don't think visual indications or notes are at all necessary. You can already setup "friend-only games" by using the password system.

It wouldn’t have to be anything super fancy. What I envisioned was identical to the block and mute lists, but for friends that you can add. I suppose, perhaps, that the other party would have to consent to the friend request though. Your other suggestions are good ideas, and could perhaps be added later, but what I’m suggesting is just a barebones foundation.

I don't think consent is necessary, especially since it's just a way of remembering people you want to talk with/invite to games. If someone bothers you, well, you can always just Mute them.

Like a contacts feature! I’d also like to propose the function of listing all games played with that player!

I’m working a lot lately on dev tools, so Enriador can go crazy with variant-development. But maybe I can add some new features later.

Imbalanced map?
It seems as if several maps need some balancing work. For example, England* v Turkey is skewed toward England, and in Rinascimento, the French are virtually at the hands of other players’ wills.

Hello, I have a problem. I am going away for a few days (tomorrow), and I don't know how to quit the game I am in. There are 36 players, so I cannot reasonably ask for all of them to pause --- besides, there isn't enough time --- so I am stuck.

Playing with fewer players
Hi all!

I know this is probably a noob question, but I need to resolve this issue: is it possible to start a game with fewer players than those normally expected? I tried it once with the Rinascimento variant, but the game didn't launch just because there weren't 12 players.
Thank you in advance!

Thanks to tobi1 we have a new and improved convoy-code.

Very cool you could solve this problem. I did take a look at your code, but I'm absolutely clueless... :-)

Gunboat specs
If the "Gunboat", "Public Press", or "Per Rulebook" rules are employed, shouldn't the game be automatically "Anon" as well? If it weren't, then players could just PM each other, defeating the purpose.

Question about social norms for players
In a large game, a reliable player asked the mods to extend the game for Easter. The request was general and largely in the name of other player: "Hey guys, it's Easter, and in a big game, some people will probably be traveling to see family." The extension was granted, and requests like that are likely to be accepted.
