New addition to Teams page

Postby tuneloon » Fri Nov 17, 2006 1:40 pm

Hey ICE,

I noticed that the teamlist page now shows how many weeks the teams are into a season. Nice little feature that helps which one to look at first at 6:15 Boulder time. (My week 8 team will play before my week 6..... I'll just keep clicking refresh on the week 8 team's game page!!!!)

It made me think of another idea that might be neat. Is there any way that we could have a flag show up next to the teams that have games that day? Say, a gold star or something. That way, a person could know who's playing that day at quick glance.

Just an idea.

I noticed this as well and thought it was a nice touch.

As for the star thing, as much work as it sounds, could it be silver if they have a game and gold if the game is completed for the day? Pain the rear, but since we are wishing...

Thanks and good job,

Nope and nope. I'm not sure how to write a single SQL statement that would give me all that information at one time.

On the other hand, I am considering modifying the game process so that you have a window into 1) the order of games and 2) where the simulation is in running those games... something like a single page that shows:

League name
...Team 1 versus Team 2 Game has ended.
...Team 3 versus Team 4 Game has ended.
...Team 5 versus Team 6 Game underway.
...Team 7 versus Team 8 Coming up next...

League name
...Team A versus Team B Later tonight
...etc...

If the game contains one of your league's teams, "Game has ended" would be a link to the "game page" (a new page) that would allow you to link to the coliseum, the playback, the text game, and a new page I'd like to put in called Highlights, which tells you the main events of the game such as scoring, knockouts, etc. I'd also love to see a pre-game "matchup" page that shows records of the teams against each other and common opponents.

But all this is pie in the sky right now...

Mmmmmmmmmmmm... Pie....

I might have thought of one... if it works, you'll see it on the team page later today.

Genius Ice :D

Much much easier to manage multiple teams by seeing at a glance who's got game. Nice job 8)
