1) Quote button in the forums. People are already quoting using italics/ bolding /(edit: Muli's quote tag), which:
a) doesn't give information about who wrote it and when
b) isn't very comfortable

2) Give us information that the RT game has started. Either play a sound (pretty much any "alarm"/ "timer" site can do this even with inactive tabs) or at least send a notification. This is needed because:
a) Bigger RT games (=fills more slowly) are likelier to have more boots turn 0.
b) Coin RT games (=fill more slowly) make the host likelier to get booted turn 0.
c) People get booted in RT games more often, meaning that play RT less often.

Points b) and c) are from my own experience.

3) Improve clan chat. Alright, this may be only my clan, but we at all don't use Discord but pop well over a hundred messages/ day. I have two requests:
a) Store more messages. Like in the game chat, you can load only a few messages, then allow people to load older messages. Storing up to 1k chat messages should be enough.
b) Make it possible for clan admins to create more clan chats. For example, one dedicated to Idle, one to Warzone Classic, one to General. I think this would make people use clan chat more and in our clan, it would help keep chat cleaner.

I'm using the already existing quote button in this forum post. Is it a members only thing?

Using the quoting function isn't a member only function in the forums. Only inserting images is. If you're writing/editing a post, you can see how to use the special functions, and whether it's member exclusive or not, only on the website though.

The magical buttons you are using are part of Muli's userscript. People without Muli's script are stuck with manually typing the tags around their text (and is also one of the reasons people dont use forums on their phones).

So yes, a button that actually quotes an entire forumpost of your would be cool.

Umm, so not Italics. However, both a) and b) still stands.

This is how you quote something.

^That is quoted.

Use the button above, or just type out [ quote ][ /quote ] (without the spaces).

Yeah, you still have to copy-paste and others don't know who you are quoting if you don't write it.

Who doesn't have it & why?

I see, so you're looking for a better quoting mechanism. Fair ... any suggestions how it could work?

The button is created by muli's userscript, so everyone that does not use Mulis script cause they never heard of it or all the people that use the apps on phone/standalone client dont have it. That means most people dont have this great feature.

This is how a forum looks without muli's script:

like the up and down voting of a person's post, ad a "quote" button to ad this post to your reply as a quote. you can still delete the part of the text you're not interested in on quoting. and it automatically says who you quote. shouldn't be that hard to program... 😊

This is a thing if you play the mobile version. The game gives periodic, in-game notifications for how long before a RT game/tourney you entered is starting. From what I've seen, it gives warnings when you first join the lobby, then at 15 mins left, 5 mins left, and I think 1 min left. I do agree that this is something that should be in the PC versions as well.

Also, since JK mentioned Muli's userscript above, if you have that, that script does give a live countdown to when your next RT game/tourney is starting. From what I've seen, you have to be playing in full screen, doesn't show in split screen

Can you see that like/ dislike, report buttons? Put quote near it. Clicking it does the same thing as hitting reply, but already prepares a quote for the whole post.

If the hypothetical feature quotes the entire comment by default and relies on the replier to trim it then in practice we'll get lots of excessive quoting. Another option is to quote only the parts of the comment which the replier selects with the pointer. Reddit does that. That might be awkward on mobile though.

Wow, that functionality is just so core, I thought it was core WZ functionality.

I had no idea that that functionality was Muli's doing! #respect

That's actually a great idea ... some issues of course as someone pointed out. Anyone quoting l4v for example would by default either quote waaaaay more than is necessary, or have a whole bunch of snipping to do. But better than nothing, it's a start.

forum is already extremely awkward, so i doubt it can be made any worse

Add a spoiler which upon clicking reveals texr. If the quote is longer than N character, auto put it into a spoiler.
