Searching for games

Postby qtkat » 09 Feb 2015, 13:54

I there a way to search for, either by number or by name, a game that has filled but not yet started i.e. waiting confirmation?
Obviously, I can offer you no assurances -- none that would be of any value to you anyway. All I can do is appeal to your well informed sense of self-interest. You will do what you will.

If Russia offers you a future draw in exchange for your allegiance, she's probably lying. Just sayin'.

Under the GAMES tab is a 'My Pending Games' option.
Assuming of course that you're looking for one of your own games?

If you're looking for a game that you've not signed up to, then I don't believe it will show up on the searches until it either, completes confirmation (becomes an active game) or fails and reverts to looking for players.

Thanks. I'm afraid that it's not one of my own games. Still seems odd that there's no way for me to check up on it.

If you give us the name/number, one of us Mods can check on it if you are concerned. I assume its one of your Blue Bloods games?

It's being confirmed within the hour. I sent a pm about it to the other players, in hindsight maybe should've looped you in too. But it's starting just fine, with everyone excited and raring to go, no worries about it stalling out or anything like that :)

And now it's confirmed. Game in question is #96823 for any curious bystanders, and the forum thread detailing the creation and point of the series can be found here: http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/view ... =5&t=48078
