Gaming Session Update - Reserve Slots

By Rich Stone, 1 year ago
Gaming sessions.

We love 'em, and more importantly, you love 'em.

We've run more than 385,000 gaming sessions over the last couple of years, and it's been a while since we added any new session-related functionality.

That all changes today with the additional of gaming session reserve slots.

Now when viewing a session that is full, you can click the Join as reserve button:

Session is fullSession is full

This will add you to the session, but only as a reserve:

If anyone drops out of the session, the first person that joined as a reserve will automatically be promoted to the session as a "regular" participant. That person will be PM'd to let them know they have been promoted, and the session thread will also have the information posted to it.

The host is also able to promote reserves into a full session by clicking the plus next to their name in the session list. This will also automatically expand the session gamer requirement by one gamer.

When looking at the session calendar, you will see if you are a reserve in a session by hovering over the session, and we've also added the information to the My Upcoming Sessions panel:

Note: Reserves cannot add or receive session feedback until they are promoted.

If you have any other ideas on how to improve Gaming Sessions, please let us know in the Site Wishlist Forum.
