Mabi

Having played a bit on both your site and SBW I thought I would mention one thing that I do find helpful on SBW.

The notepad feature which allows you to put up notes for yourself during the game. Particularly in Shadow I have to rethink what I am doing each time I come to play. If I could put 'move to Trier' or something similar it would be helpful next time it was my move.

I have no idea how difficult this is to implement or whether it has overheads but I thought I would raise the issue.

I did raise a couple of 'wants' with SBW and found that you had already implemented them on your site when I registered!

As usual thanks for your excellent work.

I have never used that feature, so I didn't take it into consideration for this site, and I wonder how many people actually use it.
Anyway it shouldn't be difficult and I will add it to my to-do list, but keep in mind that features not useful to me have low priority :).

(Sometime in the future I will have to stop working on new games and spend more time on all those low-priority things).

Mabi - if you wouldn't use it yourself, it deserves to go in the lowest priority category.

If anyone else is interested in it please say so here!

I agree with Gaditus in that this would be a useful feature for MaBiWeb. Thanks for "listening" MaBi!

:D

Could be handy to have a poll on this...

I think it would be a useful feature - maybe it's because I'm getting older, but with a few days between moves I sometimes get a bit cloudy as to what my strategy was.

I recently joined here, and a notepad function was something I also missed. I think that it would be very helpful in all games with some strategy and not only tactics; I am thinking about especially In the Shadow of the Emperor.

I like the idea of a notepad to help me create a post mortem. Sometimes I try a new approach, but since it typically takes a week or more to finish a game, I rarely remember to look back and see if it worked or not. (But I agree that this is a very low priority issue.)

It may need to be shut off for Hidden Score games.

Hi Mabi. This is a really old topic, but having found it, I feel I must join the queue of people who'd like it. I'm currently in about 12-15 games, Mostly Year of the Dragon & Richelieu, but a couple of Kreta as well. Sadly most games of Richelieu take about a week (or longer) to finish, and where there are 3 or more players, the others take much longer than this; It would be great to be able to make a few notes about what I think is the most urgent thing to do in the next action / next 2-3 game rounds, in the game itself; currently I've got some notes on assorted bits of paper...

Anyway, I know you're the one doing the work, so I'll leave it to you... :roll: , but it would be really useful. I know of one other player who has commented on this in one of my completed games, but who hasnt written anything in this forum.

Same here - I would certainly welcome the feature and not just for ShadowEmperor but also for YearDragon

Hi,
adding the notepad is one of the many useful features that could be added but unfortunately, as you have surely noticed, development on mabiweb has stopped since a few years. I don't know if in the future I will go back to do some new work, new features and new games, but for the time being I'm just maintaining the site, basically just keeping it up and running.

I would like to cancel my previous post on this thread, as I now play games on Yucata as well, and it has a notepad feature... and I dont use it! :oops:

I also appreciate this site, Mabi. It is excellent.

This feature would be amazing!! I am playing a few games of nations and struggle to remember what my strategy was each turn which normally ends in mistakes.

To throw my hat in the ring. I play multiple games at once and I would definitely use a notepad feature to remind me when I hop back in what my next moves were meant to be and general strategy for the round.

As always, love the site that you have here!!
