Notepad Attached to MD Games
Hi, I have an idea that i think can provide for quality of play. To have notepads to make notes on Games that are Multi-day. Because is too easy to forget playing multiple multiday games what were the plans you had in your head in the beggining of the game.

Could be as simple as a "self-PM" chatbox enabled.
I find it difficult to remember where my territories are in slow games with big maps, not to mention what my strategic plans were. A note pad attached to specific games would also enable quick notes about temporary alliances and truces without resorting to private chat windows each time. This is an idea I think could be useful to many players.
There are a lot of great ideas in this forum but this is the one I always find myself wanting. I have ADHD and it's impossible to remember my strategy after a day passes. I /always/ use the history button after 20+ hours have passed in a game and it's really frustrating. I tried using a spreadsheet but it became too difficult to maintain (removing completed games, adding new games). This is a very simple change which should require minimal coding to implement. please please please please....
I would use this to make note of opponents starting spots, where blockades were placed, troop deployments, etc.. It would be like the cliff notes of game. I could update myself by taking a quick look at my notes, instead of having to review the history. In 2v2 games, I already do this by posting these notes in team-only chat. It does 2 things. It informs my partner, but it also provides a quick review of the game. Would it be possible to have team-only chat in 1v1 games? As silly as it may sound, it works to make notes on, and the technology is already in place, since all team games have this feature already.
Great idea. I'd particularly use it to note whether opposition has used prio or delay cards, etc.
