Feature Idea: Friend 'List'
I'm not one to cause pressure for the coding team who are focused on the new Forum, but has this feature been suggested before? See Reply.

n the "Settings Page" you would have a friend section in which it has a text box with a search button. You would enter the player's username or player-code and with a confirmation, you would be able to send a request. The other player would receive it and if they accept, you are "friends". This would only be done for people you know and if you were to join a public non-anon game which contains a friend, it wouldn't let you which help against accidental "meta-gaming"? You would also be able to invite friends to game but they would become unranked or something as soon as you did?

If this is a bad idea, or has already been proposed please tell me. Just want to get people's thoughts. I'm no advanced coder though.

Maybe an "enemies" list would get more use

Actually I like the idea of being able to have a "personal non grata" list or "hostis mundi" list where we could list the players we really dislike, and then it prevents you from entering any anonymous and non anonymous games that anyone of your "listed enemies" has already entered, or if you've entered a game, then it stops anyone on your enemies list joining that game.
For example, I'm going to be so annoyed if I ever unknowingly get into an alliance in an anonymous game with a small group of players I detest.

Bloody auto correcting s/w.. It had to change persona to personal. It annoys me the way it tries to use "North American" spellings, such as "ize" instead of "ise" in heaps of words..eg specialise.. And tries to change "ise" to "use" .. those webellious wascally North American colonists are mostly illiterate, there's no good reason for this spelling imperialism

I'm with ATC, the rabbit hole of this is that someone like CAPT Brad who seems to be disliked by a significant portion of the active community would end up excluded from a lot of games. And while yes he did that too himself, this metric is not very math based or redeemable. It's not like him just being nice for two months will cause anyone to change their minds. So it's permanent. Not really all that fair.

I do however like the friends list idea, if it has nothing to do with games. It would be nice if it let you mass invite your friends, or make groups out of your friends that you could then invite. In theory this could remove the password protect feature as you could make games that are locked and only for "friends" and another option for "friends of friends"

This could also eventually be used to implement group chats which sound useless but imagine if you have a adjudication question you can ask your friend group and likely get a more honest answer quicker.

I like the idea, but it should be called a "Frenemies List".

The enemies list has some merit...could be used to block your own entry into a game with previously identified dufusses.

I created this account when I used up all of my 100 coins to join games and wanted to play more. I did not realise that this was prohibited and in fact, I still cannot find where the rules are located on this web site. I had to google to find the page.
Could the Mod please contact me and ban this account and verify that the two accounts have never been in the same game.
