User interface for new games awkward
confusing, since the single page has 3 sections.
What about one simple screen:
"Who do you want to play"
- leave it blank to play anyone
- type in a gameknot username to pick a gameknot user
- type in an email address to challenge and invite a newcomer to gameknot.
Better than typing in all the requirements for game parameters, only to discover when you
type in the opponents name in the middle of the gameknot.com, that you
have to RESPECIFY all your game parameters. All the boxes are on one page so it's easy to
think they all relate to each other.
If the above is not possible ... then have players make a choice of who they want to play first
with three radio buttons
- open challenge
- other user
- invite newcomer
and ONLY THEN prompt for parameters of the game like time controls etc.
Please simplify it down if you can. Look at the google search page for inspiration One box
Thanks for a great site, and I hope this feedback is useful.
