I completely agree, thank you Mark.

Yes, with that enhancement I think it is actually unnecessary to grey out the menus on the settings page because changes will then only have an affect when there are no other snipes scheduled for that Group, which is consitent with many of the other settings on that page.

You are right, that is far more urgent. I think setting it to the current number left to win is the right thing to do.

Are you referring to stopping people changing the number to win while a Group has active snipes?

I am referring to the problem of adding snipes after one has been won, (not changing the number to be won on the settings page) which is far more likely in my opinion... Here is my suggestion from the other thread to handle this:

adding a new snipe to a Multi Win Group should set either the set number of items to win for that Multi Win Group, as it does now, if there are no other active snipes scheduled for that Multi Win Group, otherwise it should set the number of items to win for the new snipe to the minimum number of items to win for the other snipes already scheduled for that Multi Win Group.


With this enhancement you would also be able to change your warning on the Settings page from

Do not change group settings if you have active group snipes, as this may result in an unexpected behaviour.


to the less alarmist:

Note: This setting will only take effect when you set up a new Group.

Yes, I intend to change that to explicitly prevent it, just haven't found time to do it yet.

With the current implementation it requires the additional warning that all snipes in a Multi Win Group must be scheduled before the first one is won... in order to avoid unexpected results... doesn't it?

Multi-win groups are now released. It is available to mirror subscribers only, and has to be enabled on the Gixen settings page. Do this only if you know what you are doing. Feel free to ask questions before you use it.

What are multi-win groups? It's a new type of snipe group that allow you specify more than one item in a group to be won. E.g. you can have 5 items in a group, but you wish to win 2.
