Pause Feature Suggestion for Waitlist

Recommended Posts

With current long waitlists I think a pause feature would be nice.  

Here's why:
Lots of us have RL things to do and after a 2h+ wait unxing or getting removed for missing invites because of the 15min you have to leave to pick someone up, tend to your kids or whatever is a pain. 

My suggestion is a limited time "pause" feature that skips you on auto-invites and marks you for FCs  to streamline the invitation process for say a maximum of 30 to 60 minutes. The limited time is probably necessary to keep people from being permanently on the lists as long as they are up but taking a limited "break" from waiting would be a fair addition I think. 

 

What does WTM think about this

Actually not a bad idea, if that idea can be coded.

I agree totally, Yesterday the 16th, I was on the wait list for something close to 4hours got up to check on my son and get him some food made, wasn't away from the computer more then 10 mins come back and see I missed the invite, when I asked if I could get reinvited was told to pound sand basically.

Long story short without some kind of feature like this it's going to hamper people's ability to fly with warp to me. 

Furthermore your rules pretty much say once you xup that you have to sit in station and wait until your turn comes.... Idk but that seems kinda of a hard sell.

Missing an invite is not a big deal on the waitlist. It happens all the time with the crazy waiting times (everyone can thank CCP for the lack of content). You will be kept on it until next time the chance rises. Might be only a few more minutes, or maybe much more. FC will obviously fill the fleet really quickly, cuz they cant know when will ppl accept invites or be back active.
2 missed invites same still no worries.
FC might remove you after 3rd missed invite tho'.

Now being offline the moment you received an invite is actually a big deal. FC will just assume you lost interest and closed the game and will just remove you from WL. So keep the game open. If you disconnect dont wait for anything, log back in sooner the better.

Whenever I see someone is offline I will ring their bell to wake em up. Make sure you are around to hear the pings, or else we can't help ya. -_-

That's actually good to know. I fly USTZ all the time and I hesitate to x-up on the waitlist while I'm logging in cause I'm worried the FC will just remove me cause he doesn't see me online.

A temp AFK self Flag could be beneficial for the FC as they wont waste time trying to raise someone who is AFK, they could then flag themselves back on return

As long as its only able to be used once per x up. 

What I dont want to see is people xing up, then just AFK for 4 hours, then top of the list when they are ready to fly
