Genexwrecker's Suggestion Checklist

Post #1 by Genexwrecker » Sat May 21, 2022 3:02 am

This will be a topic full of suggestions that have been suggested along with a yes no or backlist for the result of said suggestion.

Yes - Will possibly be implemented in the future
no - 0 chance of being implemented at current time
backlist - doable but lowest priority

I will be compiling many suggestions and adding them to this post as they are made and as this is updated. I will also be updating our stance on certain subjects.[KEEP IN MIND THESE STANCES CAN CHANGE AT ANY MOMENT AND ARE MERELY FROM PAST DISCUSSIONS WE HAVE HAD] I myself discuss most of the suggestions posted with xteven or they are discussed as group. The answers posted will not always be definitive of his current stance or ours.

((((((SUGGESTIONS)))))))

New Avatars.) yes
New avatars are always a consideration but we do not take suggestions for them. When we decide its time for new avatars New ones will be voted on and old underused ones will be replaced.

Automatic Mode.) backlist
Duelingbook is a simulator that was established to replicate in real life play as much as possible. Due to the nature of the site itself automatic mode is not a priority consideration and takes a lot of time.

Mobile assistance.) no
Duelingbook.com is not a mobile game but a browser game meant to be played on a pc therefore services and tech support and upates will be focused on that aspect and not towards making the site easier for mobile. Though we may have something seperate in store for mobile sometime down the road.

PLEASE UPLOAD NEW CARDS THEY HAVE BEEN OUT FOR A WEEK.) yes
New cards are uploaded as they are released please do not post threads asking for them to be uploaded. There is only 1 person that is able to upload the cards so they will be uploaded when they have free time and as soon as they are able to. If 1 or 2 cards are actually missing out of an entire set, just message me directly and I will make sure that they are legal and pass that information on so we can get them uploaded asap.

Expanded deck options for custom duels.) No
Duelingbook is meant to simulate irl play. Customs is meant more of a fun toy feature simply because the owner likes them. Adding massive technical changes to what duelingbook is allowed to do just for 1 or 2 custom games is far from our higest priority.

Permaban stallers.) No
We have our rules table established here https://www.duelingbook.com/rules stalling is a 3 day freeze times number of infractions. We are not going to just permanently remove a player for stalling one time please stop asking us to do this.

Turn counter in game.) Yes
Would be very helpful for tracking effects and turn count without having to count every single turn change.

Get better servers.) Yes/Has happened
Yes stable and reliable servers are a great thing to have but this site is run entirely on donations and ad revnue. Better servers are expensive so the servers will be upgraded when it is able to do so within reason.

Can I get my old dn accounts back.) No
We are Duelingbook.

Edit the stats of monsters on the field.) No
This is again something that goes against the manual nature of duelingbook itself. It is not that hard to keep track of stats irl and on duelingbook and on both you cannot write on the cards.

Delete customs.) No
While many of us do not like them it also is not hurting anybody by existing. If you do not want to play customs then just do not use that part of the site.

Do not reset rating.) No
Rating is an indication of your performance for a format. Everytime a new banlist comes out the rating will be rest to 100. This will also serve as the season reset for goat format.

Add a report button.) yes
We have ways to report users via forum but perhaps an in game way to easily acces the report form may be something to consider.

Schedule for when the site is taken down or updated.) No
The site will always be down the night before a banlist to update the card pool and reset your rating to 100. aside from that updates and services are done whenever the person who does them is available so there is no set schedule to possibly give out.

Rules revamp.) Yes/new updates soon
We are constantly looking and considering changes to the rules of the site.

Ability to delete accounts.) No
We have reasons to not delete accounts even upon request and are certainly not going to give users the ability to do this.

Ability to change usernames.) No
Would cause nightmares to monitor.

Wokeness.) No
We are not politicians nor are we invested in anyones ideals.

Hire more judges.) Backlist
We are always looking to hire more judges but finding people who are quality and capable of doing the job is extremely rare. We are not going to just hire more people and lower our standards to get 100 judges on everyday we want to make sure the judges we have are capable and reliable.

Add more features to deck construtor.) Backlist
Yes we are always looking and doing small updates to this when possible. people have asked for things like folders for decks and favorite cards these would all be nice to have but are low priority.

Make unplayable cards playable.) Yes
Cards that are unable to be played due to the manual nature of duelingbook can be updated with enough time to work or have a button made for them.

Dueling bots.) No
Manual simulator

More ranked formats from days of old.) no
Many of you have asked for more ranked formats for older formats. That simply is not doable with duelingbook being able to still function.

Improve replays.) backlist
Replays are highly used by the community and they could always be better. we have done some changes to replays recently which I'm sure some of you will have noticed and we will keep monitoring replays as well for issues and possible improvements. things such as making private cards visible are a possible consideration but about as important as deck folders on the priority list.

Attack in def.) yes
Some cards have the ability to attack while in def position or while another card is in play providing them that effect.

Honestly, the report button would just be adding one more clickable object that takes you to https://forum.duelingbook.com/posting.php?mode=post&f=7, like the button on the start screen that takes you to the forum's main page

What about giving us the option to view decks and extra decks in replays since hands and face-down banished cards are already viewable in replays?

You wouldn't want it to see the opponent's deck though, right? They'd have to adjust for that somehow?

Of course you wouldn't use it to see decks mid game. It would be after the duel/match is over. Alternatively, if you're worried that some players may not want their decks visible in replays, you can have players chose an option in, like, the settings or something where they can choose to allow their decks and extra decks to be viewable or not in replays.

That would probably need to be the default setting, not allowing a player to see your deck/extradeck after the match.

A good start would be making it so decks and extra decks are visible in replays but only in non-tournament duels/matches, as duelingbook's cheating rules don't really apply in unrated so it should never matter if someone sees cards/customs you played in unrated, and in the default rated pool where you get paired with random opponents, players can always change their deck after each match (or after each duel if playing singles) so even if you see that someone played a certain deck in default rated pool, that doesn't mean they'll still be using that same deck against their next opponent.

Better yet, make it so that decks and extra decks become visible in replays once the replay itself reaches a week old or something, as by then, it becomes impossible to try and use any information about that deck for any unfair advantage, as any tournament/match they were using that deck in is now long over meaning they could've completely changed their deck since then.

replays are currently not going to be adjusted again outside of the current changes. this may change in the near future

Remove the gender select option
Pros: less creepy harrasment (you admitted it happens), prevents future "wokeness" (people wont be asking for a "Attack helicopter") people who still want to display their gender on their profile for some reason can do so in their profile notes if theu really want to, its a setting 90% of players dont use in the first place so "why should we keep it for 10% of people" who use it.
Cons- literally none.

removing the idea of gender entirely is the ultimate goal of the woke crowd so no

1. Doesnt remove the idea of gender it removes a drop down menu no one uses.
2. You are admitting you are refusing this suggestion solely to spite non binary people then? Because there are no other reasons listed as to why it shouldnt be implimented.

Dont take offence to this, or do, but ill be submitting an abuse report regarding what youve said in this and a few other topics, i dont think you should be allowed to decide something should or should not be included based soley on your own pejudice and nothing else, like you said, you do not soley decide was does and does not get implimented, and preventing suggestions that would better the site, or at the very least do little to nothing to make it worse based on nothing but your homophobia is massively abusive.

I know you said this is on the backlist in terms of priority but I think making the report feature more accessable in game or at least on the site itself will go a long way. Means one can do it there and then instead of letting it stew and potentially forgetting about it.

You've already been told no. How many threads do you have to infiltrate to get it through your thick skull?

1. They dont get to unilaterally decide what does and does not get seen and considered by staff and 2. The reason given is based on "wokeness" which is predicated on bias, as ive been assured by site admins :)

Why are you still bringing up homophobia? Homophobia is fear of gay people. It has nothing to do with genders which is what this discussion is about. Duelingbook already has a option to select "Gay" as your orientation in the settings.

2. You are admitting you are refusing this suggestion solely to spite non binary people then? Because there are no other reasons listed as to why it shouldnt be implimented.


I gave you reasons why this shouldn't be implemented — reasons you have yet to answer: Because there are only 2 genders which are male and female, because you still won't provide any evidence to back up your theory about this mysterious third gender existing and a chromosome combination which confirms it's existence, and because you still haven't addressed my other arguments in the locked thread.
