Echelon 2 user and b3 id tie in, opnions needed.
« on: March 29, 2011, 02:09:15 AM »
The following occured between myself and FrikFry discussing the idea of tieing in an echelon users profile to their ingame client details/id. The discussion thus far can be found here. I will provide a brief summary thus far below.

FrikFry suggested that a ingame client's id be tied to their echelon login. Thus if my B3-ID was 3 for example, I could connect my echelon account to the client id 3, and on the client details page for client 3 I could then view all of that echelon users actions on that page. This is how I understood the discussion thus far. (Hopefully I got it this time  ::) )

What I'm worried about is for all games with multiple servers where you're GUID or other unique identifier (I don't know what non-Q3 games get their id's from) changes between servers this would be inconvienent for everyone who has multiple servers. (Coming from a clan with 30 servers I see this as a less then convient idea). But on the other hand if you're identifier is the same for all servers I could see easily liking this feature.

So I'm looking for other peoples opnions and pros and cons before going one way or the other with this. I could just write it in, and for all the people who have multiple servers could ignore it. Maybe allow tieing multiple id's to the account, or implement one of the two above as a echelon plugin?

Yes it does. The part thats frustrating at the moment is there is no way to remove them yet... (This will change shortly, once I get time to actually sit down again)

I don't think that it is really practical, as every admin has a different b3 id for each game and therefore you would have to store each admins b3 id for every game in the db, and then select across multiple dbs and then consolidate it all back together again. Possible, but a lot of work to get it working right, and then the admins have got to set it all up correctly........
