20090621 Outside Barricades Notifications

Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 11:08, 21 June 2009 (BST)

Suggestion type
additional information

Suggestion scope
mostly zombies

Suggestion description
Currently only players inside a building get notified when the last bits of barricades crumble down, or when the barricades are starting to get rebuilt. I suggest giving that information also to players outside the building (both of these events would also give you the profile who did it). Seeing when other zombies are attacking a building could help ferals coordinate their attacks.

Keep Votes

  1. Keep I like this. And, I think you also get an author vote? --Rolfero 11:20, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  2. Keep - I think this should go to Peer Reviewed. DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION (TALK | CONTRIBS) 11:36, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  3. Keep - for feral coordination reasons it's worth the added messages -- boxy talkteh rulz 13:16 21 June 2009 (BST)
  4. Keep Only makes sense that people outside would be able to see it. --Bjorn 14:12, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  5. Keep - Because I like the idea. --Bob Boberton TF / DW 14:50, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  6. Keep - Author. --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 15:46, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  7. Keep - Yarp. -- Cheese 15:50, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  8. Keep - Makes sense. - User:Whitehouse 20:47, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  9. Keep - I want to not like this idea, but I just can't. Donuts for everyone! --Maverick Talk - OBR Praise Knowledge! 404 22:51, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  10. Keep - Much love to the ferals, how can you say no? --Blake Firedancer T E RNL? P.I.S.I.T. 22:57, 21 June 2009 (BST)
  11. Keep - Only makes sense.-- | T | BALLS! | 05:19, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  12. Kerp - ↑ --  AHLGTG 05:20, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  13. Keep - Indeed.--SirArgo Talk 05:26, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  14. Krep - Makes sense to me Mooman72v2 06:57, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  15. Keep Even better than the hippo lake suggestion. --RosslessnessWant a Location Image? 11:08, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  16. Keep - seems logical to help out peopel outside --Kakashi on crack 13:46, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  17. Keep - --Mr. Angel, Help needed? 13:54, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  18. Keep but only if the profile link is only available to those on the side the cade was brought down from.--Honestmistake 16:58, 22 June 2009 (BST)
    I considered that, but I'm fairly certain that people on the inside already see the profile of the player who took them down from the outside. It only makes sense to give as much information to the people outside. --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 07:46, 23 June 2009 (BST)
  19. Keep/Change - Goddamnit, I really liked this suggestion before you went and added the part about the player's profile. How does a zombie standing outside a building know exactly which person is adding barricades to the inside? That's stupid but overall a good suggestion.--GANG Giles Sednik CAPD 17:34, 22 June 2009 (BST)
    The same way a survivor knows which zombie took them down. The barricades are essentially between the inside and the outside. I don't see a problem in knowing who interacted with the barricades when there are no barricades yet/anymore. --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 07:46, 23 June 2009 (BST)
  20. Keep - Good. Needs to be done.--Yonnua Koponen Talk ! Contribs 20:42, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  21. Keep - How had this not been though of before? --Michalesonbadge.pngTCAPD(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ 20:50, 22 June 2009 (BST)
  22. Keep - A good suggestion. --Bl1zzard36 00:11, 23 June 2009 (BST)
  23. Keep - I have always wondered why those inside could see it, but not those outside...--Kolechovski 18:21, 23 June 2009 (BST)
  24. Keep - This makes sense --RahrahCome join the #party!18:41, 23 June 2009 (BST)
  25. Keep Sounds like a good idea --MrJealousy 19:02, 23 June 2009 (BST)
  26. Keep What about the "x-ray" factor? Does the "you see who did it" apply to ONLY those on your side or the other side as well? In other words, can see the name of the person who knocks it down if they are on the OTHER side of it?--Pesatyel 06:06, 23 June 2009 (BST)
    Yes, you can see them from the other side, but calling this "x-ray" is excessive. This doesn't really give any information as to the number of people inside/outside, which is what makes x-ray vision overpowered. You can't "see inside", you can just see someone who is inside. Also, see my reply to Giles. --Midianian¦T¦DS¦SP¦ 07:46, 23 June 2009 (BST)
    X-Ray is the ability to see through barricades. It doesn't specify how much information you can acquire, just that you can see through it. But you DID answer my question (it wasn't clear in the suggestion, hence my kill vote for clarification) and I don't have a problem with how it works.--Pesatyel 08:57, 30 June 2009 (BST)
  27. Keep - I don't know whether it's so important to be told who did it but I do agree that peeps outside should be made aware of major changes to barricade levels. Must be optional so as not to be counted a spam. - Zig13 - 29/06/2009 at 14:33(BST)
  28. Keep - Makes the Mall Siege a bit more readable doesn't it? I need a good challenge. Chaplain Drakon Macar 00:45, 1 July 2009 (BST)

Kill Votes

  1. Kill - I agree with Pesatyel. -- THELORDGUNSLINGER 06:26, 23 June 2009 (BST)

Spam/Dupe Votes

Voting Rules
Current Suggestions

Advice to Suggesters

  1. Adding options to your suggestion is not good practice. Others will not vote on the options, only the main body; please don't ask them to do so.
  2. Once you have posted your suggestion, it is considered complete. Altering the suggestion mechanics after voting has begun nullifies existing votes, and is considered an abuse of the suggestions system. Doing so will result in your suggestion being removed from the voting system to removed suggestions, where you can work out the details and resubmit later if you desire. It is preferred that you remove your own suggestion and resubmit a new version with changes, if changes are needed.
  3. "Notes" added for clarification purposes, and correcting spelling/typos are permitted. When considering adding a clarification note, it is often better for all parties involved, for the author to remove the suggestion and resubmit it with the clarification included for the voters who have already placed their votes.

Advice to Voters

  1. You are voting on Suggestions, not Users. The text of your vote should not personally attack or denigrate the user who has submitted it... no matter how ridiculous the idea. Flaming and/or Trolling will not be tolerated.
  2. Before voting please read the Suggestions Dos and Do Nots and Frequently Suggested Ideas Page to read about concepts that have been generally considered unworkable in the past. You do not need to follow the guidelines on these pages but they are worth consideration before casting a vote.
  3. One vote per user. No exceptions. You cannot use multiple wiki accounts to vote on a suggestion.
  4. To Vote, use the [edit] button at the top of the voting section, then enter your vote in the the proper format to the end of the relevant section (keep/kill/spam).
  5. It is strongly recommended that voters (especially in the kill/spam sections) justify their vote to help others understand the reason they disagree. Feedback helps new suggesters get a feel for what the community does and does not want included in Urban Dead, and a deeper understanding of the balance needed for a workable suggestion.
  6. Votes must include a signature in order to be considered valid votes. To sign a vote, use --~~~~. Please remember to sign your votes! Unsigned votes will be deleted after 30 minutes or when found.
  7. Each Suggestion will be open to voting for two (2) weeks, measured from the suggestion's Timestamp, unless it is a Dupe or Spam. If, at the end of that time, there are two thirds (2/3) more Keep votes than Kill votes, the Suggestion will be moved to the Peer Reviewed Suggestions page. Otherwise, the Suggestion will be moved to the Peer Rejected Suggestions page.
Rules for Discussions

Votes are NOT the place to discuss Suggestions. This page and archived suggestion pages only to be used for the Suggesting and subsequent Voting of these suggestions. If you wish to discuss the suggestion or vote here, please use this page's Talk page (Suggestion talk:20090621 Outside Barricades Notifications). Suggestions do not have to be submitted in order to discuss them. Developing Suggestions can be used to workshop possible suggestions before they are submitted.

Valid Votes
  • Keep, for Suggestions that you believe have merit.
  • Kill, for Suggestions that you believe do not have merit. If you need to discuss a rule fix, use the discussion page.
  • Spam, for the most ridiculous suggestions.
Suggestions can be removed with Spam votes as described on the cycling suggestions page. If the criterion described there are not fulfilled, the suggestion must remain for the whole two weeks.
Spam votes are not a "strong kill", they are simply here to prevent the utterly ridiculous from clogging up the system. If you do not like the idea, and it's not some crazy uber power or something else ridiculous, VOTE KILL, NOT SPAM. Spam votes will be counted as Kill when votes are tallied.
  • Dupe, for Suggestions that are exact or very close duplicates of previous suggestions. For a Dupe vote to be valid, a link must be provided to the original suggestion.
Dupe votes can be used to remove suggestions as described on the cycling suggestions page. Dupe votes will not be counted when votes are tallied.
  • Humourous, for suggestions that are obviously intended to be satirical, or of comedic value only.}}
Suggestions can be removed with Humourous votes as described on the cycling suggestions page. If the criterion described there are not fulfilled, the suggestion must remain for the whole two weeks.
Invalid Votes
  • Server Load and Programming Complexity are NOT very good Kill reasons. You are voting on the merit of the suggestion and whether or not you think it belongs in the game. Server load/complexity issues are up to Kevan to decide.
  • X should be implemented first is not a valid reason for a vote. You are voting on the merit of THIS suggestion, not how it compares to others.
  • Votes that do not have reasoning behind them are invalid. You MUST justify your vote.
  • Re may be used to comment on a vote. Only the original author and the person being REd can comment. Comments are restricted to a single comment per vote, and it is expected that Re comments be as short as possible. Reing every kill vote is considered abuse of the Re comment. A Re does not count as a vote, and any subsequent discussion not part of the Re comment should be held on the discussion page if there is any extended commenting.
  • Note is used by System Operators to invalidate trolling-based votes. Only Sysops may remove troll-based votes and they do so with a strikeout <s></s> in order to preserve the trolling removal for posterity. The voter may contest the strikeout with the Sysop that struck their vote out on the discussion page. Only a System Operator may remove a strikeout.
