Hi everyone, I am testing an auction experiment which is a multiplayer game. I want all participants to start an auction at the same time so I set a waiting page before each auction round. However, I ran several experiments and some of them encounter an issue where one participant dropped out and the others were stuck on the waiting page. My questions are: 1) How do I make my experiment detect if someone closes the window? 2) How do I make my experiment proceed to the next page after detecting dropped-out participants? 3) Could I replace the dropped-out participants with bots to maintain the number of players in the remaining rounds? Thanks.
