Sure, after the update.

You can teach me how to win ;) I've not played in a few years.
I haven't played that often because there was no undo function when you can't execute the chosen action :lol:
Can you let me know when the update is?

In fact, that's pretty much how things work on BGA: if none of the regular players of a game take the responsibility to maintain it, no bug is fixed and no suggestion is implemented.
Are you seriously suggesting that someone learn to program so that he can provide free labour to a site owned by a multinational corporation worth billions of Euros?
I mean, that's how a huge part of internet works.
Most youtubers do their work for free.
Most peoples that code mods or community patchs on steam or on various forums do their work for free.
Same for peoples maintaining fanbase alive through releasing community through various means.

As for BGA, you could argue that premium subscription should pay for that but in practice they don't:
(1) Troyes is not premium.
(2) Premium subscription mostly goes to paying licenses to editors and to paying the servers. And while there are a few employees, they're not that many and I'd guess most of them are focussed on community management (moderating, dealing with reports, etc) or maintaining the site itself.

Sometimes, some companies pay for some devs to implement their game, but Pearl Games is not one of those, and I'm not even sure even one of the companies that pay dev to implement new games also pay someone to maintain the game after its release. As for Asmodee's acquisition, it's unlikely to change anything to BGA's system, except maybe for some games they own and want to push.

I'm not saying that's a good situation, but currently, if you want something fixed on a game that isn't in the top 50 of the most played games, you have to wait for a generous soul like RicardoRix to provide free labour to BGA, or provide free labour yourself. Sure, it's maintaining a flawed system, but that's by far the easiest way to get what you want.

Not sure I have a soul after I sold it for cider when I was 14. But I'll take the compliment. ;)
