migrate to different site, run game button is a pain

having to click the "run game" button every time you leave the tab and come back is annoying.

suggestion: it would greatly improve the user experience to have dordle hosted on its own website like wordle, quordle, etc. in fact, if you can generate all the html and front-end javascript to run on itch.io, then you can surely just copy those files to a github pages site, no server needed.

I disagree. It would greatly improve my user experience if all those games were hosted on itch.io. To each his own.

i only play these games on my phone and frequently switch tabs, which is why i would prefer it on its own site. but i can see the draw of having it all hosted on itch.io if the playing history can be linked to your itch.io account and sync'd across devices. i'm not sure if it does that though.

That's not my reason at all. I have no interest in having my history linked to my itch.io account. For me it has to do with desktop browser security and privacy.

I can finish one of these games in a few minutes? What are you doing on your phone that requires you to leave the page multiple times before the end of the game?

i usually write down a list of all the words i can think of that match the 2 patterns, then take the most common letters to form the next guess. i type it out in a notes app which requires leaving the game every 2 seconds. anyway, i'm just giving feedback about my own player experience. not everyone plays the game the same way and it's helpful to game devs to hear different play styles.
