I am aware of the "people coming and going without your knowledge" problem. What is actually happening is either you or my server loses connection to the internet. Only unlike the game play arena, there is no notification yet...sorry. Will add soon. If you see no one log in for more than 10 minutes, try reloading the game for now.
As for the second post, (which has nothing to do with this thread...shheeesh), the audio file was freaking missing from the online server. My hosting company has been patchy lately, and that's why I don't yet feel the need to "support" them by mentioning them. Either way, sound file is fixed, but now I don't know if other files got deleted. There server hard drive got filled up to 100%. Perhaps this rant would have been better for Dork Talk...oh well.
