If my monitor couldn't display colors I wouldn't care :-P It makes your text harder to read (some people in here might have some sort of color blindness, at least one guy does as a matter of fact) even for normal-sighted people, and it makes your posts stand out for no reason at all (whether that st...

This is an open source game. You can't force an admin to do anything. Making stuff non-disablable without hacking just keeps server admins from upgrading their servers, possibly leaving open security holes. We don't want that. The ingame menu is part of the game because it's needed. You can skip it ...

-clanmembers know who belongs to them and who not and can talk about clanstuff which they can't tell someone else(server passwords etc) Don't do that. Period. Definitely not on a server that doesn't belong to your clan, and probably not on your clan's server. Ever. Ever. Have you ever tried to make...

Ok, let's go back to your argument about there not being enough auth-enabled servers. Auth has been implemented for quite some time now. It's an unobstrusive feature that doesn't restrict players in any way by default, as auth'ing is completely optional. Still there are too few servers that use it. ...

But I can't do anything when I see players there who were our tag except saying: "Don't do that or I'll inform an admin and you get banned forever here!" :) And what an empty threat that would be on many servers! I don't think I'm the only one whose opinion of your clan would be worsened more by th...

Definitely :-)

As I said, noone complains about clan tags as long as they aren't annoying (by their apperance or by the fuss people make about them).

why? In a way they are. Nicknames are supposed to be just that, names, and are not designed to contain additional information like the player's age, their hobbies, their website, the name of their dog, the music they listen to, or who they like to play with. Hence the limit of 15 characters. Sure, ...

Aren't clan tags an abuse of the player name system, in a way?

If you want a camera that doesn't tilt, why don't you get a custom camera (or the mercam in 0.3.x)?

For desktop purposes it surely is very low… I can barely use 1024×768 screens now if I really have to.

But some old games insist on 320×240, and playing them in windowed mode just sucks.

Maybe just ask an armagetronad specific question on the registration form. Like “what does the 'ad' in 'armagetronAD' stand for?”.

That might also cause people who've never visited the main site or the wiki to RTFM instead of posting really redundand questions :-)
