Basically what the topic says.

And I have two takes on how this could be done:

1. Hotlink the .qw commands from irc quakenet right on the qw.nu page where it´s visible and easy accessible.

2. Make an option where you log onto your qw.nu account and make a looking for game statement right into the "hotbox". Not everyone is using irc, and it could be nice to be able to browse for games right here.

So the box, bar, or whatever you´d like to call it would contain all players currently looking for games. This would be a neat feature for new users, not completely accustomed to all the different servers and irc? And then you might think: "Well, why not just check the server browser?" In response to that I´d simply say not all people want to impose on a server, specially if they´re new, and not everyone on a server has the intention of playing. Would also be nice if you could respond to people looking for games in a simple fashion in the browser. The box could also contain prefer skill of opponent and/or the players estimated skill.

Ah well, that´s pretty much it.

This was actually a truly great suggestion!
IRC went Discord -> join the chats @ discord.quake.world

Since bps liked the idea we headed to mikogo and this is the result:

http://blaps.se/qw/qwnu_lfgbox.png


Some explanations could be in order as to what is shown here.

1) The basic layout of the box, small, informative and easy to use. Preferably under the Play Quake button to the right on the menu, and that seems to be the logical "next step" as to what you wish to do after installing quake.

2) After pressing the "Make a game request" button, that basically works like a .qw post in irc, you get this nifty little text box to fill out.

3) Type away.

4) Timestamp and nickname gets added automatically. The most recent post gets put at the top. It would be nice if game requests that are new (5-10 minutes perhaps) were indicated somehow, blinking might be too much, but just to make sure people notice a fresh game request!

Moreover, both requests you post in irc by doing a .qw and the requests you post in the browser on qw.nu gets displayed with the exact same format. Preferably space for atleast 3-5 games should be available, depending on how much text people decide to put there ofcourse. As for now, if you wish to contact somebody making a game request, you use IRC. But if you don't have IRC, you can always use the information in the box to get into a game that appeals to you. That's it for now and I hope it is a source of some inspiration. Thanks to bps for the graphics!

Cool cool. As Zalon said it's already in the plans. Nice to have some visual suggestions though.
