Player's Guide V2.4 Miscellaneous Action Page
Clicking on the Edit button for a listed game on the "BOARD18 Main" page will link to the miscellaneous action page for that game.
The Left Panel
On the left panel of this page you will find a list of the Player IDs of all players known to this server. Hovering over an ID will cause that player's name to be displayed. This can be helpful in locating players with cryptic Player IDs.
The Right Panel
A sample of the right panel of this page is shown here.
At the top of the panel is a table that lists all of the players in the game.
The next line shows the current status of the game.
This status can be either Active or Completed.
You can change the status of a game to Completed to cause it to no longer appear on the Main page.
The keen observer will notice that this implies that this page can never be reached for a completed game. If you accidentally change the status of a game to Completed then you will have to use the view all games option to reactivate it. The main menu of a completed game contains an Activate Game option.
At the bottom of the panel is a form that can be used to modify the game.
