He has that done, actually, Blackheart. The code needs to be uploaded to the server and he doesn't have write access.

1. fixing map upload
2. ptp recon. idk why (and sheeo would deny it happens at all ;p), but there's been a definite uptick in single-pair disconnects and in lieu of figuring out why that is we could really use some sort of ability to reconnect
3. fixing replay desyncs. another thing that's always been around but has got noticeably worse (originally i had theories here but you probably know much more than me about why this is)
4. can we automate some stuff so that sheeo doesn't have to spend as much time on it / people aren't waiting on sheeo as much? i'm thinking specifically about uploading avatars, but presumably there's some other stuff in the same boat

So I won't be around for the next couple of days, but when I get back I promise to look through all the suggestions and start tackling some issues that people want me to spend time on.

Something to bear in mind, the longer stuff takes - the less time I will have to solve other stuff. Pretend you're my boss, and be realistic about the goals you're going to set me.

I'd suggest something less complex for a start (hopefully). How about language channels, that you can autojoin same way as a clan channel.

done here:
autojoin for balance testers isnt quite in there, but you can customize the channels you autojoin and autojoin #balance that way
