Automation!
« on: March 02, 2007, 07:29:17 pm »
OK, so I've been working to add a bunch of new features for the Color War.  :)

First off, the game now knows that members belong to a team.  Each team has their own page, which shows basic info for the team as well as gives options for team members.

For racing (challenge #2), team members (including captains) can suggest races (1-8 weeks in advance) for a horse.  Then members vote on the suggestion, and captains can then enter the race.  (All of this is automated :D)

Color war activity will also be tracked automatically.

Enjoy.  :)

If you go to your Stable Page it should say "You are a member of the _______ Team" and if you click on the name of the team it should take you to the team page. That's how it works for me anyway.

Great job Shanthi, I love this feature and I REALLY love the feature listing each horses upcoming races(that thread wouldn't let me post so I thought I'd just give you kudos here!!) ;D

I forgot to note that team members will get stable alerts when there are new things to vote on, and team captains will get alerts when new votes have been submitted.

Shanthi, I had a curious question.
Is there any way that you could list the track location along with the race name for the suggested races/voting column?  It's certainly not a big deal, but it sure would make team race decisions a lot easier, I think.  Location does play a factor, afterall, with shipping costs & energy levels to consider.  Or am I a dummy and am already missing an easier way to view this info (besides looking up each suggested race individually)...?

Just curious.   :)

My team captain page doesn't have the 'stable alerts' column. I know there have been votes submitted, I haven't gotten any alerts yet though. Just thought I'd say something in case there is a bug or I'm just a blind idiot. ;D

It should be on your personal stable page, not the team page.

I may have skimmed this post... but did you mention that only races a certain distance out can be nominated?  If our horses are ready to go for Wed/Sat of this week, is there any way to race them and get the activity tracked?

:)  I'm having fun playing with the automatic races though.

Yes, nominations must be made at least 7 days ahead of time (in order to give everyone enough time to vote before entries are made).

When I log into the yellow team account and my own account, I can't see any suggested races for the horses or the voting statistics. Again I may be a blind idiot but I'm a confused blind idiot.  :P

Thank you so much for the new coding!  The alerts on voting status are helpful, and I saw that you added the track location to the race name after all.  It makes voting decisions SO much easier, so thank you!

This is awesome. I was wondering if was possible to show somewhere on the Team Captains page the votes submitted. I want to start shipping our horses but I can never remember which horse is supposed to ship to which track or which race their supposed to enter. I have to keep switching back and forth between my stable and the CW stable

Um...it does display the votes submitted, after you vote (or immediately, if you suggested the race).

You can't view votes as the color war stable login.  I'll try and add that in in the future, but for now, just login as your stable, load the team page, and then logout and log back in as the team stable (without closing the team page with the votes on it).

Update: I've set it up so that your CW stable links to the CW team page and treats you as a captain.  So captains can view alerts/votes/etc as your stable or as your CW stable.

Also, captains now get big flashy text listing whether horses are eligible to enter a race based on votes.

Next up: setting up entries to reflect eligibility. ;)

Ok, I was wondering if anyone else is having this problem. When I go to the team's page to look at the votes, it shows that I voted No for all of the suggested races, and it shows that I placed that vote on 12/31/69... Now I have voted on all of them...but some I voted yes on...and I know that the date is completely wrong.

Is anyone else having this problem?
