Hey all. Is it possible to imlement in next version of Armagetron option that will make Server Bookmarks act as Server List? It would be nice to have the info about the players in all bookmarked servers.
What do ya think about it?

I'm pretty sure that if you select a server from the list and hit 'R' it will poll it.

Well, currently, the score bias function of the server browser would be the only thing useful here, we don't have a "browse bookmarks" function yet.

I think it would be convenient to be able to poll the bookmarks. But in the meantime, the way I've done it now is as follows:

I've biased out nearly every server on the list, save the ones I've bookmarked and a few others. Then I just hilight the "users" column to see if anyone is in those remaining servers. It's functionally the same thing as you suggest/request.

The only downside is when you get an annoying situation like this and you have to bias out that server repeatedly.
