Upcoming www features

These are the features I plan on adding to the www, sooner or later:

  • After investigating a city with a spy, the city info is dumped to the website so that screenshots will not be necessary

  • Partially import old accounts - for ranking purposes.

  • Automatically create history, something like plots but with player deaths, aliances etc. I already did that in previous games from saves, but it was not acurate.

  • Allow players to add game history

  • Creating a new poll automatically creates a forum topic

  • Email notifications about stuff (poll creation, game start) - if the player wishes it

  • Automatic screenshot manager - right now I have to add screenshots manually, and players need to send them to me by email

  • /create and /remove buttons for LTeX games - the operator won't have to manually add newcomers. Some waiting periods should go with it

About History.
It would be very nice if players could publish their histories in "Chapters", which correspond, roughly, to a specific Turn number (of course they don't have to write a chapter for each turn!!!). If each chapter have a field with "T#" (and of course, a field with the LT# game), they can be arranged not only historian-wise (history by one single player's POV), but also chrono-wise, i.e. one can read altogether all point of views of, say, T100,  by player x, player y and player z. Chapters may have a title field also.
If world map or stats are available of that very turn, they can be seen altogether with the POVs.

This would lend to a navigation tree like this:

   -"Here I am" (Monamipierrot POV)
   -Dude POV
   -"Fantastic spot" (OleTraveler POV)
   -[World Map]
   -Dude POV
   -KG POV
   -[Historian publishes]
   -"Gonna kill Monamipierrot" (OleTraveler POV)
   -"Gonna kill OleTraveler" (Monamipierrot POV)
   -[World stats]

...of course, if I were a programmer I would do it myself wink

Thanks dude for the great work.
