Still Going Strong
The current way is an accurate way to see if a player is active/inactive. Once you finish building your preferred village buildings, the village will stop to grow unless someone catapults it down and you have to rebuild it.I'm interested to know more about the growth monitor. Wouldn't a better indicator of 'growth' be how many points the village has gained in a period of time, and therefore the rate of growth, rather than how long since it last increased in points like you have now?
A player that doesn't grow is usually considered inactive, so it should be an accurate way to see how "active" a player is.
I'm pretty bad at making up names, maybe "growth monitor" isn't the best name for the feature but it is the most accurate one, as it "monitors" a player's "growth". I could've called it "activity indicator" or something but that's not what it really does, growth and activity are related but not fully equal.
