I'd like to propose a feature to the playroom which would enable players, especially those interested in joining a free table, to view the list of people presently in a table before joining in order to avoid awkward encounters with other players they have on their block list or are presently attempting to avoid.
At present, if the table has more than 4 players, the list indicates only the number of additional people without any names. For instance, free table with Darkwolf, Tarzan, Prince of Persia, Anastasia and 5 other people. If therefore, among the 5 other people is Terminator, whom the player viewing the table is attempting to avoid for any given reason, said player has no way of knowing that unless 1: They join the table in which case it may lead to a rather awkward situation in which the new member is compelled to stay after being greeted so as not to appear rude to those welcoming him/her, or 2: asking the table master or anyone else who's names they see who else is at the table, which is rather inconvenient, tedious, and may appear odd to the recipient of any such enquirey.
I would like to suggest therefore, a feature or keystroke which would display the names of all additional participants at the table which I believe would avoid such unnecessary awkward interractions.
In addition, another feature which would advise the new participant that a player who is presently on their block list is at the table, upon their request to join the table. For instance, should I attempt to join a table with Terminator who is presently on my block list, but is not the table master himself, I would be advised that he is currently at the table I am attempting to join, and then asked if I would stilllike to join the table regardless.
I do believe that this will eliminate any minor conflicts and or discomforts which tend to stem from such unfortunate circumstances, giving the players a more peaceful environment, and the moderators far less of such issues to deal with should problems arise from any such encounters in the future.
I do hope that the admins would strongly consider making these adjustments, and that it will not be too long before we are able to make use of them on this platform.
