sit out timer request

I know that you moved the option to the individual ring games settings. is it possible to still have the global setting left in and used as default if nothing is set for the individual game. the new setting has caused a slight problem as I sometimes change the setting on the fly, if there are waiting lists I lower it and when games are trying to start leave it at 60 mins so others see that there is interest. the new way I cant adjust while game is in motion. or make it so some select game settings can be changed while the game is online. also not related if timer is set to say 10 mins and someone was out for most of it and they come back and hit wait for BB button to rejoin game if the 10 mins expires before the blind gets to them they lose their seat (this happened and player was upset). once they actively hit wait for BB the game should recognize that they are back and playing. one more non related item if I get up from seat to reset my timebank and im say on the button when I sit back down it reblinds me, this I believe did not happen in prior versions (if you were about to be a blind and resat it would skip over you until the button passed you by, not a big deal but it should give you option to wait for BB or start now.

Thanks,

Rick

Clicking the Wait for BB button after sitting out still means you are sitting out, taking up a seat that another player could be using right now. Players could abuse that by alternating between Wait for BB and sitting out, never playing a hand. If there are players waiting and you haven't played a hand in 10 minutes, you deserve to get booted from the table. What I will consider, however, is showing a timer letting everyone know how much sit-out time a player has remaining.

Thanks for the quick response that makes a lot of sense, I probably should have realized the opportunity for players to angle shoot with the option.

Any thought to the "some" options being made available while the game is online? or leaving the global option as default if not set within the game itself?

Thanks again as always,

Rick

The option is always set, it can't be left blank. You don't want to be changing that on-the-fly anyway. Not only is that a hassle for you, your players should have a consistent setting. Perhaps a better solution would be to add an option so that no one gets booted unless there are players in the waiting list?

Great idea that's why you're the master.
