Poll: Dominion Card Picker has 1st editions & Update Packs; should it also include 2nd editions?
My Dominion Card Randomizer includes all the first editions, promotional cards, and now the Update Packs. Technically, this includes every card in the game. …but if, for example, the dog ate your 1e base game, and you used the timely misfortune as an excuse to just get the 2e base game, then when one of the 7 "dumped" cards, such as Adventurer, comes up, you'd have to "veto" it by clicking on it. So, at the good suggestion of Oskar 10101, I have created this poll to see what people would prefer.
Which combination of sets should the randomizer include?
1st edition + update pack (2nd edition owners must veto Adventurer, Chancellor, Feast, Spy, Thief, and Woodcutter if they come up) — This is how it is currently; it includes all the cards, but favors us 8-year Dominion collectors.
1st edition + update pack + 2nd edition (1st edition owners must exclude 2nd edition; owners of both editions would have to veto duplicate cards)
1st edition + update pack + 2nd edition + additional programming to automatically filter duplicate card names for owners of both editions (1st edition owners must still exclude 2nd edition)

You know you can have the same poll shown in each of the linking posts you have made under each "expansion", don't you? The responses are linked to the poll, not the thread.

Just post the poll number as "poll=331184" with square brackets round it.

Why not have checkboxes & cookies for what sets one owns, in addition to automatically dumping duplicates (my choice in the poll)?

Design choice: I wanted to get away from the bunch-of-checkboxes paradigm of ones I'd used before, and provide instant results. Big fans tend to have [almost] all of the sets anyway, so I default to that and give instant results, with the ability to remove what you don't have (or individual cards that are a turnoff for Player A or Player B). You can bookmark a setup that excludes what you don't have, and always go straight to that. For example, here's someone with only the 2e sets and some promos.

The cookie idea is an interesting one, but I wouldn't want it to replace the existing functionality. Perhaps cookies to keep live track of your preferences like the dynamic URL does? Then, if you hit the page without any arguments, it uses your cookie. Hmm. I'm not getting a good feeling about the effort-to-benefit ratio here, since we can already bookmark. Feel free to continue the sales pitch, though!

In fact, this discussion has given me the idea of providing 2e preset links: Adding ;v=Saboteur;v=Scout;v=Secret%20Chamber;v=Coppersmith;v=Great%20Hall;v=Tribute;v=Adventurer;v=Chancellor;v=Feast;v=Spy;v=Thief;v=Woodcutter to the URL is trivially easy….

If you go with filtering duplicates, be sure to filter them before you get results, not just when a set has two copies of the same card. Otherwise the cards in both editions will show up more frequently than cards only in the pool once.

Right. The later-edition cards have to supplant the earlier-edition cards of the same name.
