Hey everybody, here’s a quick update on a couple of changes we rolled out recently related to game signups.
First, you can now restrict who can sign up for a session by role. By default, any cleared attendee can sign up, but you can now choose to specify that a particular game is available only to event staff, GMs, or both.
Restricted games will still be visible to all in the schedule, but signup buttons will only appear for attendees who have been assigned the roles to which the session has been restricted.
With this change, we have completely retired the concept of “slot zero” from Warhorn.
Second, the system no longer assigns the GM role implicitly when an attendee signs up to GM a game. Event staff must now assign the GM role manually on the attendee’s manage registration page before that attendee will see GM signup buttons anywhere in the schedule. This means that you now have complete control over who is allowed to sign up to GM your games.
We understand that different types of events have different needs and are very open to feedback on both of these changes. We will tweak them if we think it’s necessary. So let us know what you think!
