I might be grossly misunderstanding the situation (I tend to do that >_>), but what's wrong with marking upcoming games as "played"? You've signed up to do scenario X on day Y, that means it won't be available to you on day Z anyway.

Because I'm signing up for stuff 2 months in the future and availabilities change, scheduled scenarios change, characters may inadvertently level out of range, etc... I just think it could be possible to mess up and keep something checked as played when it actually wasn't.

Maybe just putting in a date field when all scenarios are played, and that could include future dates. Anything that is a future date could be highlighted for easy differentiation?

Need some tech in place to make something like that possible. You'll have to stay posted for a while. :)

Sovereign Court 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

Maybe look to Warhorn's "your upcoming sessions" feature for inspiration? I think they're on the right track.

Integration with Warhorn might be interesting actually, although the problem is that they don't strictly use a canonical collection of scenarios you could track. The global catalog comes close but but it's not used sufficiently strictly.

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I am working on giving more feedback as to who GMed scenarios you find by selecting players.

I could use some input, would you rather:
- Be able to select a seperate GM and then see on scenarios that players have not played if that GM has GMed it.
- Be able to see the above, but also if the GM GMed it in the other campaign (PFS versus CORE)
- Be able to just see for each player if they have GMed it, thus allowing to see for example if some players have GMed it. This would probably also remove the option to add a specific GM.
- The above option, but still with a seperate GM option so that we can filter away scenarios players have already played.

I am leaning towards the last one: Selecting a GM and then filtering what the players are still able to play, then displaying the GM and the player's track records with that scenario.

Dark Archive 5/5 Venture-Captain, Pennsylvania—Philadelphia aka Benjamin Roe

I would say allow the option to select a separate GM and then only show things that both the GM hasn't GMed and the players haven't played. If the GM doesn't mind GMing something he or she has already received credit for, then people can just not add the GM to the search.

I would like to be able to find (as a GM):

a) Scenarios that the GM has played and the players have not played. Campaign is not relevant.
b) Scenarios that the GM has not received GM credit for as per Benn's suggestion. Campaign is relevant.

Adding in a symbol for players that have already GM'ed the scenario is a nice to have.

Option B would require tracking whether you've gotten credit separate from whether you've run it or not. Did you mean scenarios that you haven't run?

You are right, there is a difference. I meant to show scenario's that I haven't registered as having GM'ed in that specific campaign.

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I've been implementing the feature and here is a WIP, I am very open for feedback. It is not done yet though. :)

Sovereign Court 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

Looks pretty. Since you're apparently timestamping reporting things anyway, I'd like to bring up the "upcoming sessions" feature again.

Suppose you could sign up for a scenario and note a date here it'll be played. When that date happens, the signup will automatically be moved to your "played" scenarios and you get an (optional) email notification this has happened.

Likewise, if someone else marks that you've played a scenario, you could get a notification about that. Which might be useful as an anti-vandalism measure for people who've set their list to be editable by anyone:
- Anyone can add scenarios to such people
- Only the profile owner can un-play scenarios marked as played
- The profile owner is notified whenever someone marks him as having played a scenario

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Haha, it is on my list, but can't do all at the same time. ;)

And I timestamp pretty much everything. Created on and updated on. Does not mean I can easily throw a 'date to be played' that is totally a player thing.

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

After another few hours of work I think it is stable enough to release, so I updated the tracker on tracker.campaigncodex.com. Refresh your browser to recieve the new version that has a lotta optimizations and more importantly the overview of who played what while searching and the option to add searching for a GM.

Shadow Lodge 3/5

First of THANX..... This is very well done and already better than ANY other tool I have used.
2nd) how about a feature for Replay (GM Stars) (I know there are not many but It is nice for keeping track if you forgot something)
C) great job
IV) there is no 4 only a spoon
5) splitting reporting for each character would be awesome but you already know that as you guys invented AWESOME with this app.

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Haha thanks :)

At the moment the idea is to revamp the entire reporting section 'soon(tm)'.

I spend some time relaxing these christmas holidays though and have not touched the code a lot. Unfortunately it was recently pointed out to me we have a bug in author searches that breaks the app when you search on author. This has a higher priority to me then the reporting options. But they are coming! :)

Fun fact: 242 accounts have reported 18,527 pieces of content (scenarios/APs/etc) as played already. Quite amazing.

That is an average of 76ish per account.

...

We play this game too much. :)

Grand Lodge 3/5 Venture-Agent, Washington—Bellevue aka Divvox2

Holy crap. This is amazing. I was looking at some of the notes you've posted above regarding new features, and I was wondering if you'd considered the ability to register a group, which is searchable by non-group accounts to associate their account with. That way the group owner can quickly query your tables to locate the scenarios that haven't been done yet.

Has this been done? I was hoping I didn't misunderstand some of the earlier discussion, but it seems like something that would be particularly useful for organizers when picking the scenario lineup for a regular game-day. Particularly for people taking up the new Venture Agent role who have an association with a shop. Allowing a user to associate with multiple shops/groups/GMs would also be incredibly useful for those who attend multiple game-days.

-edit-

It looks like the GM signup does something similar, but more along the lines of reporting, similar to how the paizo site tracks GM/Players, rather than an association with a group to evaluate scenarios played and game-day planning. Is this an accurate assessment?

Sovereign Court 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

@Divvox2: you're not wrong, venue scheduling isn't there yet. That's a tougher problem actually.

What it does now is help find a scenario that X, Y and Z can all still play. What we don't have (yet) is finding a scenario that "many" from players A-Z who frequent a local venue can still play. That's quite tricky actually, because you have to account for past games in that venue, people who only come to some venues occasionally but frequently to others and so forth.

Grand Lodge 3/5 Venture-Agent, Washington—Bellevue aka Divvox2

@Ascalaphus: Mmmmm, you wouldn't have to include tools to determine a list of viable scenarios for a game day, just having the data would be incredibly useful, even if you only got 50% of your users to participate in the tool, knowing which scenarios most players have already played in would allow you to pick scenarios nobody (or most people in your group) haven't played. Having the group association could also present opportunities for a requesting process for users to the group organizer (providing them with group data like "The scenario you're requesting has been played by 86% of this groups members"). Not to mention other organizational tools that could use this information. I pictured it as a couple of new tables (group information and player >> group association) and some query-based interfaces, but I am likely over-simplifying it.

Sovereign Court 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

I'm not saying there's no hope, just that it's harder. It's something I want myself very much, I co-coordinate scheduling across three gaming stores. It's tricky keeping track of what's been run where and who's coming to which venues and therefore what scenarios are good choices.

@Divvox2: Glad you like it :) We are constantly evolving the features. At the moment we are deciding how best to show the played info on the search page. We are running a few options, so that can change from day to day for now. We have two groups one that wants to constantly see everything and one that wants to only toggle it. But how do we implement that nicely?

Then after that it is likely that we will first release a reworked reporting page before moving on to the things you listed. A solid base needs to be in place before we can continue with 'advanced' features.

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

There is currently a server issue which means the sessiontracker is not showing certain information. I am on it, stay tuned for more.

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

The issue has been resolved. :)

3/5

Thank you for this!

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

A new build is up. It has the first steps of your settings being remembered by the system. Make sure to refresh your local code by reloading your browser!

If you go to the sessiontracker it will remember your search filters on that device+browser combination.

There is also a 'Reset filters' button on the search page to quickly reset your filters to the default.

For now I have chosen not to save your search values (scenario, author, player, gm) and party composition. If people want that, I can contemplate it later.

@Paladin of Baha-who?: No probs dude, enjoy.

The tracker seems to be missing the comic store invasion.

http://paizo.com/pathfinder/comicInvasion

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

This is true, hmm and what would that categorize as, a quest?

EDIT: Added it as a season 5 quest at the moment. Can always change it.

Silver Crusade 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ RPG Superstar 2013 Top 8 aka GreySector

It is a strange animal, because it doesn't grant any XP (like a quest) however I don't think that you can play it as often as you like (unlike a quest).

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Quests are technically evergreens I think?

One of the things that is in the pipeline is that quests get their own reporting bit, instead of being shoe-horned into a season. So that should make it all a little easier as well.

I changed some security related features on the host today.

For the techies under us: I turned off SSLCompression and change the CipherSuite to not use some outdated ciphers. SSLLabs now approves highly. :)

For the non techies under us: I have cut off support for really old browsers (mainly IE6) in favour of more security.

Silver Crusade 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ RPG Superstar 2013 Top 8 aka GreySector

Any idea when Iron Gods or Gianslayer will be added?

BTW, thanks for doing this!

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I have just added the newly announced scenarios for season 7.

@Michael Eshleman: They are sanctioned now? Then I shall get on that. Should be up later this week then.

Sovereign Court 4/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

Yes, they are :)

Grand Lodge 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ Venture-Captain, Online—PbP aka Hmm

I just discovered and entered data on this today. This is a fantastic tool. Thanks so much for building it. It made the search for an unplayed scenario for my PFS Pet Stomp event (several high level pet class characters -- all playing the same scenario at the same time, together!) much more viable.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Hmm

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

My pleasure :) Good to hear you like it. Been too busy to add a lot more to it, but I should have some more time soon.

Shadow Lodge 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵⦵ Venture-Captain, Indiana—Southern aka CanisDirus

Everyone I show it to loves it - thank you again for doing this! :)

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Alrighty, Giantslayer and Iron Gods are now in the tracker. Have fun reporting. If you see anything wrong, let me know.

And no probs Mike!

Grand Lodge 5/5 Venture-Captain, Arizona—Phoenix aka TriOmegaZero

I can see I have some catching up to do.

Silver Crusade 5/5 ⦵⦵ Venture-Captain, Germany—Bavaria

The session tracker is pretty awesome, I have started using it and asked my players to do the same.

Well done, if you need any help covering server cost, maybe a donate button might be worthwhile.

Hi Simon,

Just wanted you to know that I have been using your tracker with great success in organizing sessions at my local gaming store. Being able to have people sign up and then determine the scenario based on their availability has allowed some long-time veterans to get back into the game. Kudos, sir!

From a store organizer perspective, being able to track the last time a session has been played at our location and being able to filter out sessions that have occured in the past X months would be a super feature to consider.

Cheers,
-Juice

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Hey Juicetice,

Heard that one before. It is a 'huge' feature since the tracker does not do anything with groups/locations yet. Nor does it do much with dates.

That said I am working on planning functionality and that will be adding in the option to remember what was run in a 'group', so then this is a small step.

Not anytime soon though. :) Gotta move, sold our apartment, possibly changing jobs, girlfriend changing jobs, overall too tired to code much after work. ;) (Which is also coding!)

5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Online aka Magabeus

So that's why we haven't seen you much at our game nights ;-)

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Surely, did manage to pop in for the Skykey Solution, but I am just very low on energy. No worries though, it will pass!

Silver Crusade 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ RPG Superstar 2013 Top 8 aka GreySector

When is the next time the statistics page will be updated? It doesn't look like it has been updated since March 10th, 2016.

Dark Archive

Hey, I just saw your tracker, it has a pleasant look. I'm really excited about it, need to play around a bit before I can give you more feedback.

Dark Archive

Make it so when you create your characters, there is more space for their names. Also maybe a drop down box for the authors list, I'm new and don't really know any of them. A drop down list that shows who's who and who to search by would be good for new players who don't know them very well but might want to check it out. What am I an owl? There are way to many whos' in this post. :p

Silver Crusade 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ RPG Superstar 2013 Top 8 aka GreySector

On the subject of characters, I have used all of the available space and have more to enter... :(

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

@Michael: Yeah its been growing quite a bit and the daily update ran out of memory. I am in the process of splitting it up, turns out there are almost 400 accounts at the moment.

@Lord Laird Bates: I can see what I can do, but the list of Authors is pretty long and loading then all everytime you get to search is infeasable.

@Michael (again): Wait you ran out of 60 slots?

@James: Do note that it is not the easiest to setup. :) But you can! The power is in that a lot of people are in the system though.

Silver Crusade 5/5 ⦵⦵⦵ RPG Superstar 2013 Top 8 aka GreySector

Simon,

It must have updated, IIRC it had previously capped out at 30 characters.

Scarab Sages Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Someone mailed me that 30 was not enough so I gave it 60 for now and am looking into changing the field into a input field instead of a dropdown when I find time.
