[SUGGESTION] Kick idlers only when needed!

#1
Kicking idling players from servers is - if I understand - a feature to keep the servers clean and ready to welcome active players.

But when there is not much happening on the server, why kick these few people? Let them idle if it doesn't hurt anyone!

I was kicked a lot of times because I wasn't touching the client, because I didn;t have time just to play, but the servers where pretty uncluttered, so they could have kept me until I was a total waste of CPU time.

How about making servers kick idle players only when there is less then 1 free slot on the server?

An example (made right up):

A server has 8 slots, 2 players is playing and there are 4 idling, watching them or just having the game running while doing other stuff.

Then another 2 players join in and start playing. We have 8 players, which is more than server_max - 1. Now the server switches to "kick the idlers" mode Wink
It searches for a player that is doing nothing and kicks the one who has been inactive for the longest time period. This frees up 1 slot, so the server can welcome another player. If another players joins, the server will kick another idler (if there is one) and so on.

The whole point is to eliminate unneeded idlers kicking and do it only when server is getting full or overloaded

I assume that server load is no problem. The server could also kick idlers if it has trouble with performance and if the game is suffering stuttering Wink

no kicking for idlers on TDM, DUEL, CTS and CA mods (spectating is very important and its part of the gameplay, also: tournaments and all the stuff)
for kicking: FFA, CTF, and other modes.

I'd agree but I thing players playing should have priority over spectrating ones.

We can also solve this problem by making a dialog window:

What about having an option requiring some activity when a map loads? This would mean that you get prompted to start, team selection or spectating and after a 30 second countdown, anyone who hasn't selected to play or spectate will get kicked. This means spectators would actually have to be spectating rather than sitting looking at a wall.

Alright, can this be made a standard server feature so it won't require additional changes to the CFG of the servers, just updating?

I don't know how this stuff I done, who can implement this?

I tried to do it, but I can't login. I changed my password, it's okay. I tried to login with it using a name I got in mail from the system, but it keeps saying: "Invalid user of password."

Could this be a problem with the tracker?

Send a mail to divVerent if you think there's a problem with logging into the tracker. I don't admin and I have no way to help you personally with that.
