Automatically re-activate quests.

  • Idea
  • Updated 2 weeks ago
  • Planned
I would really love to be able to set an adventure or quest to only be available once a week or some other time frame. The trash only has to go out once in a week but I don't want to have to reactivate it every week.

This seems like a popular idea - it's now next on the list.

Note that a related suggestion for "repeatable" quests was raised as a question at http://getsatisfaction.com/chorewars/...

Great idea =)

It get's easier when you don't have to look around for the things that you want to do daily or weekly.

Awesome! I've just started using Chore Wars, and this was the first thing I was trying to work out: setting chores to only be available at specific intervals! I don't want my kids repeatedly claiming XP for cleaning out the litterbox 5 times a day! ;D

Seems like there are a couple of variations here.

1. once per time period, e.g. when I complete the chore, it is not available again for x days starting from when I complete it.
2. recurring on a specific day/period, e.g. it resets on Sunday night, no matter when I complete it.
3. Only available on specific days, e.g. if I don't take the trash out on Monday night, I can't do that chore again until the next Monday.

"it's now next on the list" being said 6 months ago makes me sad. :(

Our household does everything by time period; weekly, daily, monthly, etc. So it's really hard to use chore wars without this.

Alas there is no "team", Chore Wars is (apart from the great artwork from Craig) a one-man project, and it has to fight for time alongside everything else I'm working on. 2010 has been quite a busy year so far, and I've had to make some tough calls about where to allocate my time. I'm hoping to get back to Chore Wars development over summer, though.

The fact that Chore Wars is free could be a factor. I think everyone who uses it should become gold members and encourage friends to join. If Chore Wars became popular enough that it was helping pay the bills, I'm sure upgrades would happen faster!

I can see so many applications for this program and hope that it continues to be developed. We homeschool and use it to track school assignments as well as chores. Maybe someday there will be an affiliate program. I'd sign up, unless I've already recruited all my friends by then.

This addition would really make this program on par with a number of traditional to do lists, and the awesomeness that is Chore Wars would actually blow the rest of them out of the water at that point.

I have just discovered ChoreWars and I have a bunch of people I would like to sign up: and I will buy Gold memberships for AT LEAST 5 people if this functionality is added. Please? If you have any interest in adding a new URL like worldofworkcraft.com to make it a bit more work-related, I'd pay even more :)

all these threats to buy gold membership -- seems like it would work better if people were already doing that, giving more incentive to put work into a project that's starting to pay for itself...

i understand what you're saying, but it's been "next on the list" for *a year*, with no further comment from the developer; for all we know he's not even alive at this point. Giving money to what might easily be a totally dead project is not necessarily a good idea.

I have purchased a Gold Membership in honor of encouraging Kevan to work on this and other upgrades. It's a small amount to support a useful product, really. My family really likes Chore Wars, but I can see lots of ways to make it even better. Timed quests are my #1 "wish."

I sure hope we see this. I am with wbouvy. When I see this added I'd be willing to toss some green the direction of the developer. :)

Kevan, you have said elsewhere in these forums (fora?) that you may not have time to make these upgrades. Have you considered making the code open-source or allowing members to try to help you work on it?

Also, what languages and tools did you use to create the project?

I'd be happy to help with development too. It looks like it's just PHP/MySQL, with a little Javascript around the edges. Patching this wouldn't be too hard.

This could be added as an option only available for gold members.

Whats the difference in the gold vs free account?
