With the amount of cruft now being posted by multiplayer threads, whether tournaments, leagues or some wierd chess thing, would it be an idea to have a forum for these posts? Preferably with the option to mute them in the latest posts list.

I seems that over half the posts are about when to play and most of the rest are about rules and maps. As far as I am concerned relying on some moron for my gaming pleasure is just about the worst way to play any game and even worse is watching a replay of someone else playing a game. The fact that from 10's of thousands of installs only about a dozen people seem interested in multiplayer is a good reason to shuffle these posts into their own corner.

Pleae don't use swearing words in your post.
But I support to have a new Multiplayer Forum and the option to mute some threads or forums.

Creating a new forum in the Player Forums can be easily done. Muting some forums or threads so they do not show up in the latest post box isn't easy.

I wonder why this is needed at all: Many threads are created in the wrong forum (including this one, which i would expect to be in the Homepage forum face-wink.png ). So muting a specific forum will probably result in overseeing some threads.

Do you want a Multiplayer Forum without option to mute it?

Would it be feasible to create a forum for code development in the Widelands Development category? There's no place where discussions directly related to coding C++, scripting Lua, and other dev stuff that is not of interest to non-developing players really belongs.

Do you want one forum for all or different forums for C++, Lua and others?

How should it/they be named?

I think one forum for all kinds of coding and scripting stuff would be enough.

Name:
Coding & Scripting
Description:
Discussions and questions related to developing in C++, Lua, or Python.

+1 for one development forum.

I would not be opposed to a multiplayer forum, which could then be used for organizing tournaments and meeting up. "Playing Widelands" could then be for strategy tips etc.

Here you are: Coding & Scripting

I did not added a Multiplayer/Tournaments forum so far, because there was no clear consensus about it.
