Dontos  :)
09:35
Eo'Han  I love this game I've just joined, "4 Europeans, June2016"
09:35
Eo'Han  As England, I have one castle and two boats
09:36
Eo'Han  and dickish attitude
09:36
Eo'Han  Game on!
13:18
Dontos  Yes, that was the other game I was ousted from. But you're welcome to 'barge into' one out of two ;)
13:24
Dontos  Hmm, wasn't that the one where I had sailed from England to Africa? One castle? Really? Oh, my, sounds like that Wolf really got a hold of my behind
13:43
  [Ser/Dame] ThreeFingerHobb has been knighted

Eo'Han  Black death or some shit
15:16
  [Ser/Dame] SansaStark has been knighted
15:28
SansaStark  hi
15:29
SansaStark  It is my first game
15:35
Eo'Han  Welcome aboard! Hope you won't be bored!
09:05
Dontos  I wish I could take a spectator's seat. Eo'Han, have you considered implementing something like that?
09:06
Dontos  If I log out, I can "spectate" some newly finished games, but not ongoing ones, as far as I can tell
09:30
Eo'Han  It's possible, yes
09:32
Eo'Han  If you open up your browser's Javacript console and type openGame(id), where id is a finished game's number, then it can be spectated
09:33
Eo'Han  Of course there is the issue of players not wanting foreign eyes to butt in with advise to fellow players
09:33
Eo'Han  to their rivals, even
11:06
Dontos  ok, do you mean, if I spectate a game with three players, A, B, and C
11:06
Dontos  and I suggest moves to A, then B might feel like he's not playing against A anymore, but rather an enhanced A, and think it unfair?
11:07
Dontos  I can see how that might apply in the case where A and B know each other
11:08
Dontos  or even if B has played A before and is starting to be able to predict his play style
11:09
Dontos  I personally don't think it would be unfair to accept advice from others, as long as that other is not privy to your opponents secrets
11:09
Dontos  but I can see how people's opinions might vary on that
11:11
Dontos  of course, player C could suggest moves to player A, with B being none the wiser, in the current system
11:12
Dontos  but if spectator comments are an issue, then surely it would be possible to set it up so that spectators have no way in-game way to comment
11:15
Dontos  also, Eo'Han, you said:
11:15
Dontos  "If you open up your browser's Javacript console and type openGame(id), where id is a finished game's number, then it can be spectated"
11:15
Dontos  do you mean ongoing game?
11:15
Dontos  'cause otherwise it doesn't answer my question
11:16
Dontos  besides, where would I find the correct id? It doesn't appear in the url
11:21
Dontos  I can see a scenario where I'm playing a game, and a spectator butts in with advice
11:21
Dontos  and I need to decide if I'm going to trust the spectator with information about what I'm thinking
11:21
Dontos  information that he might take to my opponent
11:22
Dontos  so I might even prefer not to share my train of thought
11:23
Dontos  on the other hand, a big part of my enjoyment of this game comes from discussing the possibilities presented by the current situation
11:27
Dontos  with anyone who wants to listen to me, going on and on, like I'm doing now... ;)
12:04
Gerold Gower  i think they call it kibbutzing
12:08
Dontos  ok? never heard of that *googles*
12:08
Dontos  kibitz: To offer unwanted or meddlesome advice, such as that given by the spectator of a card game.
12:10
Dontos  yeah, that is yet another aspect of it, what if the player being advised feels that it is meddlesome
12:11
Dontos  One way to deal with that would be to implement it in such a way, that there would be a formal way for a spectator to offer advice
12:11
Dontos  The player would receive a notification: Spectator X wants to offer you advice. Do you accept?
12:12
Dontos  and if the player declines, the spectator would get feedback, that the player does not want advice
12:12
Dontos  or something
12:13
Dontos  but I think usually, such convention just develop automatically in the specific culture on that forum/game/whatever
12:13
Dontos  conventions*
12:14
Dontos  There could be a way to allow/disallow spectators joining/commenting etc
12:14
Dontos  could be decided by creator of that particular game instance, or by player votes or something
12:16
Dontos  but if we just want to keep it simple, then maybe just allow spectators to spectate but not comment
12:17
Dontos  of course, simplest way would be to not implement it at all, and just keep it as it is, which is fine. This was just idle speculation
12:19
Dontos  one downside of it could be that it might slow down games, if people are stalling with their moves while discussions are ongoing
14:19
Dontos  But somehow, I don't think that will be a problem
