Show dates in the campaign selection screen? #4212
Good point, I agree: we don't want to present unnecessary information to casual players. And it's not just YW: TRoW and UtBS's start dates are "2 BW" and "300 AF" respectively.
For context, I think the reason I bothered to implement that was because I figured the start_date was lore and it wasn't presented anywhere else in the UI.
Not easily. It's not a table, the "Dates" and the list of campaigns are two separate widgets.
Maybe the dates could be shown in the large pane on the right. Or maybe we could add a "More information" button that pops up another dialog, leaving the main campaign selection dialog streamlined. If we had such a place to dump extra information, we could use it to show the forum thread link, campaign version (if UMC), and so on, so this information wouldn't clutter the campaign selection screen
