Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

So there could be a sub-forum with a thread per tournament, and each thread's title gets updated with [Completed] or the like when it's over. I don't see why you think people would be willing to scroll through a bunch of posts on a thread to see what the most recent tournament(s) are, but wouldn't b...

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

Having a Users > Tournaments subforum would accomplish the same purpose as a stickied thread, I think. The purpose of the sticky is to have an easily accessible, curated, list of events. If you create (and bury) an events subforum somewhere, players will miss it, not sign up, events will fail, comm...

Re: Dunefolk Rework - Unit Descriptions

Piracy I think would work better as a campaign element - maybe have a scenario where the Dunefolk + Naga allies are having to deal with Naga pirates, for example. It doesn't seem unrealistic that there would be Naga pirates, but having that as a core aspect of their units seems out of place to me.

Re: Optional player's rating

The ladder has 25 players, and less than 50 games a week. It already has collapsed. One post from nearly a decade ago is not proof that a functional ladder is impossible. What, specifically, makes implementing ranked so difficult in Wesnoth? Historically, there has been a feeling that MP in general...

Re: The Fall vs the Great Fall

I would say from a consistency standpoint, the game and wiki should match. So, if the game uses only "Great Fall", then that should be what the wiki uses. If the game uses both, then I'd say just pick either and make sure to clarify that "Fall" and "Great Fall" refer to the same event.

Re: Possible DATAURI bug

The PR adding DataURIs was to address an issue submitted to allow displaying add-on icon images that users don't have on their local PC. However, the wiki page also says: This can be useful for add-on icons in the PblWML (which may otherwise only contain core images) or for single-file scenarios. So...

Re: Optional player's rating

Moving forward without considering the possible outcomes is a very good way to have unintended consequences. Moreover, it seems rather unlikely that out of all the thousands of games spanning decades that have had ranked matches, there have been none where it proved detrimental. So essentially sayi...

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

A bit more general, but putting the tournament messages in updates would be simplified if wesnoth had a in-game update mechanism, like at least a pop-up with "a new version of wesnoth is available on the website", and at best a mean to checks for updates and update wesnoth from inside the game menu...

Re: Optional player's rating

This isn't a topic that's really been open to much discussion before, so not considering how this sort of change could impact this particular community wouldn't be a good idea either.

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

It's probably fair to say that many people only register on the forums since it's now required for MP. A lot people probably don't check what's on the forums at all - the daily user count for Steam is, last I heard, higher than the number of people that have replied to the OS poll, for example.

Re: Increase multiplayer numbers?

Off the top of my head: 1. Sign up in client, rather than having to go into a browser, register here, etc. I've had a number of friends who were very turned off by the whole process. 2. An automated, or at least considerably more user friendly, ladder. Currently this is the process you have to go t...

There is also this PR, that will hopefully be merged at some point, which would affect this as well.

I can't upload the extensions anymore.
I get a "Invalid icon path" message although I didn't change the main.cfg, nor the server.pbl, apart from version number
What's the path you're using?
