Title: New 'Find Games' Page Online
Post by: pftq on April 09, 2011, 06:57:54 PM
Hey everyone,

     If you look at the Canasta Club ( website now, you will find a new tab called 'Find Games'.


     The new Game Finder feature will let you create and join game requests (meeting times).  This makes it much easier to meet up or play Canasta outside of the weekly club meetings.  Rather than wonder hopelessly who else might happen to be free, or call everyone and risk spamming people, you can just create a game and be notified when someone joins it.

    Those who want to play would simply check this page to see who else is available.  If no game is currently up or you cannot make any of those times, you can just start a new request.

     You will receive emails everytime someone joins or leaves your game, so you do not have to worry about constantly checking the page or forgetting you had a game up there to begin with. :P  Once a game is filled, people can continue to join but end up waitlisted.  They move up automatically if slots open up, so even then, there is virtually no work on your part.

     Any questions, just let me know.  Feel free to test it out and see how things go.  Hopefully this will come in handy for setting up times outside of Friday evenings.  For example, there are a few of you who have asked to play on Yahoo Games (auto shuffling/dealing/scoring) but have no idea who else would be free; this should make it easier to organize such a meetup.

     Enjoy! :D

Updated the interface so the join/cancel buttons are next to the actual game.  Please test and use before the semester begins!

Start a new game, invite members (don't spam people that you don't know won't mind though), etc.
