Support / Glitch? Things are not the proper size...sizes changed.
« on: 22 January 2017, 12:48:38 AM »
All of a sudden, my dominion game screen is a different size. The main screen is larger and when I use sentry, the trash or discord card display is super tiny. I signed out. I reloaded pages. What do I do?
I couldn't even chat to tell my opponent it wasn't working because the chat typing window was not visible due to main screen size.

I'm going to stay away from the "small talk" discussion and head back to resigning mid-game without a word.

Dominion is a society (the aggregate of people operating together in a more or less ordered community; an organization or club formed for a particular purpose or activity). Simple truth: in societies, our actions do not occur in a vacuum, they make an impact on others. Etiquette considerations (standards for making things go more smoothly) do not seem unreasonable in a society. The value of etiquette is easily argued, in business, families, online communities, etc. Some people see the value more than others and this is sometimes a result of upbringing or a result of maturation but I readily admit that some people will continue not caring what others think or not caring about the niceties of society for their entire lives. If it doesn't help them then that will be all that matters.

I ascribe to etiquette matters as an element of ethics. If possible, I want things to "go more smoothly." To me, it seems good/right/moral to want to generate good will. I will not take this too far and I always am interested to hear what others think even though I cannot be entirely responsible for what others think (they have to own part of that).

As part of the Dominion community/society, I stand resolved that I'd like to see it be a friendly and considerate competitive arena. To that end, I hope that etiquette is adhered to more often than not. Just as most of us feel the burden to not play too slowly because it can be annoying, I hope people will consider the possibility of playing through or commenting, rather than resigning without a word, if for no other reason than to make online Dominion "go more smoothly." It only takes a few seconds to generate that good will. I know, some will not be willing but I hope many will.

It would be great if right clicking one card just brought up the entire set.

I don't really care about hearing the shuffle or the gold and province purchases. But I do wish there was a sound when you need to play a reaction card or discard down (as in Militia, etc). That would help games keep moving a little smoother. Sometimes I can be actually staring mindlessly at the screen, waiting for my turn, for the cards to shift up the way they do, and I don't realize that it is actually me that needs to take action. Guilty as charged!  ;D I can see that something like that happens to opponents as well.

Just to clarify, I am not suggesting that people need my permission to resign when they are losing. I am definitely saying it is rude not to finish a game, just because you are losing. The fact that it is online is no different than it would be if you were sitting across from each other and the person just walked away without a word each time they were losing. It's being an impolite, poor sport in person and no different online. I was hoping that maybe Dominion culture could be developed to embrace good sportsmanship and etiquette. There are plenty of online etiquette concepts that we embrace regularly, LIKE NOT YELLING AT PEOPLE BY USING CAPS.  ;D  I know there will always be times people have to suddenly quit because of an emergency. But under normal circumstances, I'd rather play people who follow through and finish.

Online Dominion will be as good as we make it.

I appreciate getting all this feedback. I will try  :P not to feel so annoyed by those who resign and leave the table. But I think I will still see it as poor sportsmanship and bad etiquette.  Communicating with your opposition about it would be SOOOO much better, would protect your rep and even staying to play again would be respect-worthy. The WORST is when losers resign and leave the table without a word, not even so much as a "gg." It is very hard not to see that as a poor sport. Imagine playing someone in real life who quit every time you started winning. They would quickly be on your list of those you don't want to play with!

Okay. I'll stop ranting now.  ;D

How do people feel about players resigning mid-game? I had one person ask me if I minded if they resigned because they couldn't catch up. At least the person asked. Most people just suddenly quit. I'm keeping pace with the game, not too slow. I guess I will always view it as being a bad sport when people cut and run but I'd like to hear what others think.
