Order history should include draw proposals

Postby ColonelApricot » 10 Oct 2020, 20:59

Draw proposals and outcomes are part of the history of the game, therefore they should be recorded in the order history.

The proposal is in the PP, but not the outcome (by outcome I mean the votes, and the acceptance or rejection or expiry if applicable). The outcome is shown in the Status page but disappears after one round.

In secret ballot, you won't even know the outcome of the draw proposal in the sense of who voted for what.

In open ballot, it appears in the Public Press, no?

In a secret ballot your own vote is recorded in the Status page but that does not endure in the way that it would in the order history, nor does the expiration.

In an open ballot the votes appear in the PP but the expiration doesn't. It would be useful to see at glance in the order history the powers that have accepted or not voted at expiry.

I realise that some of this (but not all) can be deduced by finding and correlating the draw-related messages in the PP with the order history but it would be much more convenient to replicate the draw information from the Status page into the order history.

I agree. If I want to look over a game, it is a good idea to have the history of draw proposals included with the move history instead of making me look back and forth. I don't think the votes need to be included if it is secret ballot; the fact that the move history doesn't end implies that the draw was rejected, and no other information should exist in a secret ballot game.
