General Discussion / Re: Volunteer development?

Geez, why the assumption of bad faith, josh?

The work of "being a community manager" and managing contributions of a bunch of strangers to a codebase is significantly different than the work of being a small team and writing a codebase yourself. "Free" help is often worth what you pay for it, unless you put in a bunch of work to shape it into something useful.

I don't think that means "yep, we're done here, no work to do", it means that they don't have a setup internship program and don't think setting one up is a key priority for their company.

General Discussion / Re: Should this undo be granted?
« Last post by jeebus on 18 May 2020, 01:48:43 AM »
Sorry for necroing, I just want to add my voice to those saying that the undo should be granted. IRL there is no reason to deny a player the opportunity to change their mind when no new info has been revealed - even on the last turn, obviously before you start counting points. The reason this is even a topic in online play is because some players confuse clicking buttons with playing Dominion. Clicking is not an integral part of playing Dominion.

Because of the online VP counter, there is some disagreement in this thread on what constitutes new info. When it comes to Wolf Den etc. - which rely on knowing the contents of your deck - you first have to realize that it matters, then you either have to remember the game state or go back through the log. If you didn't realize that it mattered (since you had forgotten to think about it), the score after your turn would alert you to it, and this would be new info for you (since you had forgotten). If you did realize, but you misremember the game state, or don't bother checking, the score after your turn would likewise be new info for you. (In any case, there is no way for the other player to know exactly why you made the mistake.)

If you played Treasures with a certain plan in mind, and realize during your turn that you shouldn't have, that is not based on new info. Maybe you could say that the point counter goes up as you're buying Provinces. I would not view this as new info, it's just that the VP counter is helping you add 6 to your score. You already knew that buying a Province would give you 6 VP. There is no way that is unforeseen or something you didn't think about. The reason you want to change your plan is based on your own brain power.

Card Bugs / Horse + Way of Monkey (card picture)
« Last post by nibbit on 17 May 2020, 10:09:20 PM »
I played a Mastermind followed by a Horse the next turn, with Way of the Monkey on the board. The first two times I played the Horse as a Horse, the third time as Monkey. At the beginning of the following turn, I drew a Horse into my hand, which strangely had the picture of the Monkey on it. I played it and it operated as a Horse as normal. Not a big deal, but thought I would report it.

Game #45019458, turns 14-15

Ingix,
I don't think that is true. 
I think (IMO) that the truth is:  "There is a LONG LIST of bugs and software modifications that need to be made.  But addressing these are so low on our list of priorities, we prefer to refuse help, even when it's offered for free."

I agree that there may not be, technically, such an official pull list.  But there are a ton of fixes and improvements that can be made, including ones that many many many people have been requesting for many many many months.  So, regardless of semantics; I am guessing that it will annoy many paid subscribers when people say, "I'm happy to help out, for no money.", and Dominion's response is a polite version of, "No thank you. We don't need or want assistance."

I'm not sure I'm annoyed.  But I am profoundly disappointed.  The subtext seems to be, "While we are happy to collect your subscription money, we're also fine with the game as it is."

Game Log Issues / Pedantic: The plural of platinum is platinums, not platina
« Last post by creelbm on 17 May 2020, 08:20:07 PM »
The word platinum is pluralized incorrectly.  Platinum doesn't clearly have a plural in English, since in talking about platinum objects the word is used as an adjective, but the word gold works the same way (gold coins), so if we're pluralizing gold into golds, platinum should b pluralized to platinums.  The plural is listed as platina in the deck card summary at the end of games.

Bug Reports / Bug Report: Disciple + "Don't Throne" Verbiage
« Last post by quoyle on 17 May 2020, 08:21:53 AM »
When playing a Disciple, the option on the screen if you don't want to play a card is "Don't Throne." This is confusing for new players who have no experience with Throne Room. It should say something like "Don't play" or "Don't Disciple" instead.

Feature Requests / Re: Friends-only tables?
« Last post by kieranmillar on 17 May 2020, 07:02:51 AM »
Here's an alternate approach. I think maybe on the New Table tab it could have a new third option:
New Public Table
New Private Table
Load Old Game

So making a table split into two. Making a public table the same as now. Making a private table asks you to set a password that anyone entering the table needs to supply to join. Then you tell your friends the password. The table is listed on the tables screen with a padlock icon.

This is how the Worms game series did it in Worms Armageddon and Worms World Party and it was very effective, although it also had a public IRC chat channel in the lobby ingame so people could talk to each other and organise games. This was back in the days of before automatch features when organising was the only option.

Hey, I was wondering if there’s a pull list of bugs or features that the developers need help addressing? I’m a software developer who loves Dominion, and I’d be happy to volunteer some time researching and fixing. Thanks!
