Hey all,

just a random thought, quick suggestion i just thought of that might make world of tanks an even better game. and its fairly simple too.  Have you ever been ready to enter a clan war without enough players? We've had that happen a couple times and it causes negative vibes due to the fact that in the clan chat list it shows more than enough clan member online yet we can't field a full team. Calls for kicking members out were made but a more reasonable approach and explaination is people are logged into the game but are afk (i know everybody already knew this but...)
Sooooo, it would be nice if when a player is inactive for... I don't know, 15 minutes then their status light goes from green to red (or insert your favorite color here). That way when teams are looking at the list of available players you actually know who is "playing" and available and who is just logged in but afk.  just my 2 cents...

yeah, figured I wasn't the first person to think of this but thought I'd mention it to WoT just in case..  I did the same thing for when they changed the flags to green and red. I made that suggestion and until I'm told otherwise will take credit for that change.. :)

This all being said, take a look at my suggestion collection, More comments and +1's will show devs, mods, ETC that there are some good ideas in there.

I looked at that CanadianGuitar, you put forth some good suggestions that hopefully WoT will consider.

i like this suggestion, but if it gets implemented. Would be nice if it were something like 30 mins instead of 15.
