Find Players

Searching in your local game store or on message boards to find other local gamers can be pretty frustrating.  Roleplayers & Tabletop Wargamers have challenges finding other gamers who live near them.  Everyone hopes to find people interested in the games they like.  When you do find other gamers then you're crossing your fingers hoping they'll have similar opinions on genres & play-style.  Find Gamers is doing it's best to help you find other people that match your interests not only in Roleplaying but also Miniature & Historical Wargaming.

Gamer Profile

After registering and building a Gamer Profile, you'll be able to search for local gamers in your area or those interesting in playing online.  Other people can see your favorite games & interests then contact you about tabletop gaming opportunities.

Online Gamers

If you live in a sparsely populated area and can only game online, then you can add `Game Online` to your Gamer Profile.  Find Gamers show your Gamer Profile in the Local Gamers search (Within Australia, Canada, Great Britain & USA) but also list you in Online Gamers listings.

Find Conventions

Another feature is our member driven Convention & Event list.  Any registered user can create events.  They can be Conventions, Online Events or the more popular Local Only Events.  Local Only Events are often used for:  a local organization's game day, a hobby store's tournament or class on painting miniatures. Our gamers are looking for Roleplaying or Wargaming conventions, be sure to add yours.

Updates: Local Player Finder & Test Users

Salutations Gamers!  

We've rolled out a few updates this morning that our members should find useful.

Local Gamers

The first and most important is a major update to the Local Gamers player finder.  The goal was to make the page more useful to our members on mobile phones.   So I'd love some constructive Feedback to know if it's helped our smart phone users.

We recently implemented a few enhancements mentioned in the previous news article.  The new Tab Display options in Saved Settings (formerly called Page Settings)  has been updated further.  They allow you to control the initial volume of information displayed on the search page.  The first row in Tab Display will show the least amount of information initially.  However you can set the page to always merge tabs so it will display more information right away.

Test Users

A few of you might have noticed some extra options in unexpected locations.  It means you were one of the roughly .007% who were chosen by an algorithm to be one of our Test Users.   You get to test new features before our regular members see the updates.  If you see a blue padlock occasionally on a menu or in a page, it means you are currently a Test User.

If I see our Test Users trying out new test features but don't send Feedback, it's assumed there are no problems and it should be released to our other members.

Some of you might be wondering what types of things our Test Users are trying out. 

  • The most recent was the changes to the Local Gamers player finder. 
  • Today a new option on the top menu was added.  It allows members to temporarily change your Postal Code.  Why do that you'd ask?  I had a few members send Feedback asking for this option.  All of these members have jobs where they frequently have extended travel for work.
  • In the next month, Test Users might see a new type of email.  They will only see this email if there are new members in their local area available for gaming.

Enhancements for Find Players Searches

Some of our members might have noticed a few changes to our Find Player pages recently.  The Local Gamer and Online Gamer search pages have updates and new search options.

As always, please let us know through Feedback if you have any problems with these updates.

Search Options

The Custom Search options that appear on both Local & Online Gamer searches have changed.  We've move these options, they now appear in the page instead of a pop-up window.  This was done for a couple of reasons.  Some of our member were having problems on smaller screens.  This will also allow us to add newer search options in the future without cluttering the screen.

Saved Settings

There are some new search options that are saved on a per-page basis.  You'll see them referred to as Saved Settings.

Members have a new option to limit search results on both search pages.  You can now search for Exact Matches for Games & Genres.  When other members appear in your search, only the game systems & genres that match your own are displayed in the results.  We've had a lot of members ask for this feature.

A few of our Board & Card gamers have asked for an easier way to see the General Tab without needing to select every single one of them.  It's now a savable option in the Local Gamer search page.  In the future we'll separate RPG and Wargaming into separate tabs.  It'll clean up the clutter even more.
