Let’s say all of the recent tech issues are resolved over the next week or two. What—after those are fixed–would options are your first choice for making the site better?
Suggestions raised recently in a Replay Poker Volunteers’ Meeting included the ones below. What would you choose ?
- Ability to customize table skins
- Add wooden edge around the table
- Offer live chat away from the tables
- Add more than one photo to your profile page
- Post personal message beside ID like “Away for the day; back tomorrow”
- Dealer button stays on the table throughout the hand
- Identify the spectators
- Use emojis in chat
- Offer more personalized stats
- Add 5 Card Stud
- Add Blackjack
Too bad your list is limited. (1) Animated avatars at the tables. (2) LIVE VOICE chat at the tables.(To all the naysayers): if a player becomes offensive simply block their ability to chat immediately, Same as text can be blocked presently…
Thanks r_i_c_k. I’m new to poll creation! Your written response with additional suggestions is a perfect antidote for my limitations. We can do a second poll later with the ideas that come in here that aren’t on the list.
Okeydoke. You are very welcome…
Currently players receive a “warning” beep when their time clock is about to expire. Leaving you with only a couple of seconds to act. I think a major improvement to RP would be to add an additional tone that notifies you as soon as it’s your turn to act too. This should be an easy addition and would be a great help to some of us who get distracted by life while playing cards.
I like this idea very much. I’ll definitely add it to the next survey. Thanks dos-rios!
See no need to know who watches table people who do are in my humble opinion a bit paranoid. lol
would like to see emotjes,dealer button on table
I don’t want to know who is watching because I’m paranoid. I want to be able to mute specific spectators when needed, and I can’t mute them if I don’t know who they are.
can’t you just close chat window …lots of players chat up there friends from the table.
Actually it doesn’t matter to me if they show spectators or not lol. Just give me an up yours emote for them or a shhhhhhhhhhhh lmao
Your vote was cast, your voice heard.
The majority of those responding want to be able to identify and block selected spectators without having to block all chat.
More personalized stats is a great one.
% of hands played.
% of pre-flop raises.
Aggression Factor (ratio of bets/raises to calls post-flop)
% of hands to showdown
% of showdowns won.
For me, it helps me track my play (am I too loose/tight or aggressive/passive today?)
We could have the numbers showing on the screen for that particular session/tournament, and then our career totals in the Statistics section for comparison purposes.
It would be nice to get sitting out players kicked off the table after 5-10 hands of not playing at all.
Also instead of a wooden rail around the table a nice white padded rail would be nice. Throw in a cup holder for my beverage and I’m in heaven.
Not enough suggestions for me I’m a fan of more variants of poker. I suggest less Texas Hold’em and more other variants. Not only Five Card Stud, but also Razz and Draw-Poker (high and the Low-Variants: 2-7, A-5 and Badugi). I’m also a big fan of Mixed-Games like HORSE and 8-Game and maybe some Replay-Variations, that include Royal for example.
I am also down for other variants like Razz, HORSE, 8-Game Mix, Badugi, 2-7 Single Draw, 2-7 Triple Draw, etc., but above all else…since it’s gaining in popularity among the nosebleed players…I’d love to see Short Deck. It’s a game that isn’t offered on many sites at all and yet is very complex and fun because it hasn’t been solved well at all compared to regular Hold’em and (especially) Royal Hold’em.
Any way, I chose 5-card stud because it is the choice in the poll offering another game.
I would like to see Big Blind Antes in tournaments. This is more realistic to what you see in casinos.
Plus, I would like the ability to download all hands that I’ve played for off-line analysis; perhaps in a spreadsheet format.
Oh yeah…good call…big blind ante is definitely the standard nowadays. It’s what one of my two home games groups has gravitated to since 2020 (I think!). My other home games group hasn’t gotten together since COVID started but last operated on an antiquated ante structure after 4 levels if I’m not mistaken.
Fix what we already have …please
That is most definitely Priority #1, HoboSoup!
ability to boot a player - Create a “boss” / 1st / only player that can boot. Identify as STAR & what ever rules - No all in -, must show -no muck, etc
Good luck with that wish list
