Cheering section?

O wow, just had a kick butt idea. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere yet so, here it is

Basically, I've been browsing the battles on my site since the last upgrade to make sure I have the weapons and armor set right for the new code.. and I felt like cheering on a few battles.. you know... posting my own lil jib taunt or jab

So what about it? A form for people to submit a taunt when viewing another battle?

This of course would only work for non-private battles

Well.
I think this IS a good idea but Im unsure of how extensive it will become.
I mean admin staff on my site discussed doing this but we thought of it to be a local mod, Shoutbox dupe (which I couldnt release since Im not original creator).
And the other alternative I can think of, allowing others to jab in battles, could get messy

So could you give me more details on how you would want this to be and look, please?

True, some people could really post some mean stuff, the more I think about it, the more I think that leaving it as is is prolly the best.


Another idea for ya

Yeah.. my users are full of them.

We only have about 2 dozen using the rpg right now so I'm not sure how functional or if this would be VERY slow, but when your creating a new battle, perhaps the place that you enter in a user's name, allowing you to type something in, or you can select from a dropdown?

Guessing it would add one more query to the new battle page.

i like the idea of chattiing while spectating. i installed shoutbox to see what i can do with it, but then i realized if there's 2 battles going on simultaneously you hear from both.

some sites with hundreds of members a dropdown would get a bit cumbersome. maybe a member list page of those that have rpg characters.

You know.. that might be possible with a tweak of the hack that lets you search by usergroup.

I have the search by usergroup, I'll see if I can tweak that, wonder if we could make it like the clickable smilies and you could click on the username and it would input in the box..

Whats been going on here, having member names in dropdowns for start battle?
Not only would this be query inefficient as utter hell, what if theres hundreds of members, even within the usergroup? Or maybe the forum doesn't use usergroups at all, beyond Admin, Mod, SMod, Registered, Banned?
:P

Hehe I was thinking something along this lines

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=60420

But modding it to look for people who's rpgname != ' '

Ooorrrrrrrrr

What about moving rpgname to a singletext user profile field?

The user profile fields have the option of being searchable in memberlist...

Yeah I'm just brainstorming

Shoot me, kick me, and tell me I'm crazy , I get that on a daily basis
