Thanks for the interest - sounds good to me. However, if it's at all possible, could we wait until the 0004 beta before implementing your rooms layout? .. I'll explain why it would be better:
[WSD] is currently assisting me with the design for clans / playing groups - more than just arena structure - we're developing a totally integrated system - allowing a "clan leader" to have a web interface, allowing him to add / remove people from his group. The group's arena subtree will be access-controllable - ie you would be able to make sub arenas where only your group could go, etc. You will be able to dynamically create / remove arena trees, and control where people are permitted to make user arenas, etc. This is all coming in for 0004 - and I would much prefer to keep things slim until I can easily palm off responsibility for your bit of the arena to you
Dont take this the wrong way - im very grateful that you guys choose to play on xlink - im just to assert some sort of control, to try to make the progress towards the things described above as smooth as possible..
Im hoping 0004 shouldnt be long - theres nothing in there which sounds particularly problematic - but im not gonna try to give any sort of timescale - as ill just make an ass of myself - as usual
