I think it would be truly awesome if there were an option to have the system notify you a specified amount of time before a turn is about to take place. Usually the only reason why I miss a turn is because I was busy and forgot that I had a game(s) going. Thoughts?

If you forget that you are playing diplomacy game at all notification will not help you that much.

Plenty of cases where a reminder could make the difference, including not realizing that everyone had readied up and the game processed early, or when you're playing multiple games simultaneously and might overlook a deadline, or if everyone readies up and the game processes early, or whatever.

During tournaments, someone (usually a mod) notifies those who might have forgotten. I am not sure what it would take to add this as a feature. I will forward the question, it seems like a good one.

Isn't it automatic to have a notification pop up at the top of the screen wiht !!!'s to say you haven't entered anything in for a turn? Are tourneys differnet, or do you just want something that'll email you every time a new turn happens, or like if it's 24 hours or whtever until the next deadline when you haven't input a move?

We don't really have the capacity to send that much email, even before the issue of putting in the development time.

Play on bet, you will never forget and you won't need notifications.

Another option could be to use web notifications, which I believe on mobile (at least Android if I understand correctly) will be put into your phone notification list even if the browser is closed. These thus could be accompanied by sounds/vibration etc.

Each time the main page is refreshed the notification timers could be updated (as you have the next move times for all games at this time). This of course won't catch all scenarios (e.g. you haven't come back to the main page in a while and there was a pause) but I believe that may be good enough for most scenarios. Of course given the current code base, I don't know how hard/easy that would be to build.
