Or it should be like when you're ingame and you start flooding with taunts and get kicked. Maybe they should do that for the lobby chat. Start flooding and get banned.

And yay! Vice president :D

i'd HATE this.

Like now, you go to a server, you see a potentially good player, you ask him if he is interested in clans "I use AIM and xfire only, lets make a clan!".

Soon they will be like "lol irc no we use Soldat ffs noob -.-".

I came up with a new plan,

Lobby-Location-Chat (OLD)

New: Lobby-Location-Chat Rooms (SoldatForums, Gathers)- Chat.

Different tabs for each room, like tabbing in Mozilla Firefox.

Let's take this one step further:
Soldat's IRC interface would so user friendly that for noobs it would just be a simple type to chat and double-click-something-in-this-list to join the server with a nice and userfriendly list of people in the lobby as well as channels.  Then, it would also contain much of the needed functionality of actual IRC for those who need it, including all them / commands as well as logging in and authing urself (perhaps).
And it would use the Player Name (under Player tab) as your name in the lobby!
Can't think of anything original to put here...

Very good zyx, that's a good idea because it would be "curved" for the people who want the lobby chat and the people that wants IRC! This might bring peace between the people who want the lobby chat and IRC, in that way more support for Lobby Chat! Hopefully, Michal would actually look into this and put it in his "stuff to improve Soldat" to-do list.

If we had an in-game Soldat lobby chat, it'd allow players to arrange matches and clan wars much, much more easily. There could be separate channels which clans would create, much like IRC, except in Soldat-form. I definitely would love to see this implemented. Kinda reminds me of the Starcraft lobby chat.
For signatures, you are allowed only one image in your signature which may not be wider and taller than 300 and 125 pixels, and may not be over 20kB in file size. No BMPs are allowed.

Whoah, I breezed over your post specifically looking for that and I completely missed it :0

I've never played Starcraft, but this reminds me of StickArena and how it has a chat lobby built in.

F12, definetely a good idea.

However, I think there are bigger issues at hand in soldat, so this is gonna have to take second place to bugfixing. Hopefully one day this'll be implemented.

For the kicking wouldn't it be best to have an admin for the main lobby chat page?

Yes, but wouldn't he have to look over all the server lobbies online?

There should probably be only one Main Lobby so admins wouldn't need to oversee a pointless amount of servers, only the 'Official Soldat Lobby'.

The chat system should be able to go to any channel on quakenet but the Main Lobby would be the only 'guaranteed' channel - if you catch my drift.

Wouldn't it be packed though? I like the idea of each server having a chat or something like that. Besides, what would be the main language if theres only 1 server? Maybe there should be a report system where people can report others if they spam/flood or whatever.

Well, maybe there should be multiple servers - like the Starcraft lobby. If Soldat Main is full, then you are automatically moved to Soldat Main 1, and etc. Each of the servers would have a bot that punishes if the user spams or uses foul language.

And as for the language issue, then it would read off of your preferred language choice in Soldat Setup and automatically send you to the right channel (like Soldat Main for english or EspaƱol Canal de Soldat for spanish users)
