Color Code Players
« on: August 04, 2015, 01:16:18 PM »
It would be nice for several reason to have the option to color code players, either be able to change the color of their name or have the option to show a dot beside their name and be able to change the color.

Specifically on the Tables Tab.

Great idea, I can also think of a few uses for this.

Where would the the player category/flair/whatever to show up?  (Players tab?  Tables tab?   Player Rankings screen?  Tournament screen via layout tokens?  Player Movement screen?)

Also, what are some uses for this?

I would see a use for it in at least player tab / add player, it could be used for tagging paid members, Player have announced that he/she will be late, or tagging players that plays for a side pot.

For me, Player Rankings screen and Tables tab is where I'd use it most.

For me my main thought is to use it on the Tables tab (including the list of unseated players on the right), I have several related players and want to make sure they start the tourney at different tables. It's getting harder and harder for me to remember all of the relations but if I can go in and color code them once that would be great. I also like mcfojd's idea of marking known late arrivals which would help for seating on the Tables tab to keep the tables balanced at the start of the tourney. I would think the option to show the category/flair/whatever would be good on the following tabs: Players, Tables. Layout, Database, & Stats tabs.

So if I add some flair (could be color or some icon next to their name) to a player in my database, I assume they always have that flair (across tournaments).

That is the way I would like to see it.

yes i see no reason to change or remove it during tournament, after or before next one thou.
Maybe good if you could mark several players to reset their icon/color or if a "reset all" was there

If you are going to add some flair like the above mentioned, maybe there could be a possibility to add a flag to every player, or if it turned up automatically when you have contry filled in.
It would look nice if you have a list of registered players on screen pre tournament, and on the lists showing ranking and prices, even in export would be nice.
Maybe not so many run tournaments with diffrent nationality's, but it might be a nice feature for commercial users at least.

Flags would be nice but The ability to add any generic icon (Teams, Flags, Avatars, etc.) would be even better. ;-)
