Description

The multiplayer lobby of 0 A.D. and pyrogenesis would be much more scalable

  • if users could store multiple user accounts and server addresses in the local configuration file
  • add, remove or edit existing user accounts

If two lobbies are joinable simultaneously (or if it is effortless to switch between multiplie lobbies), then there might be a synergistic effect on the community/communities: many more players in both lobbies than if both lobbies were only joinable by config file or clumsy UI text editing.

  • Perhaps server-to-server (s2s) support could be used to connect lobby rooms of different servers (for example seeing games of multiple servers in the same list, or using tabs for multiple lobbies).
  • Perhaps unrelated, but I wonder if it wouldn't be better to host a separate lobby for adults and one for children below 18. That way we don't have to worry about people posting edgy jokes or communicate in a way that is not suitable to children below 18 anymore. Instead of being a restriction (as a moderator you have to fear every remark of lobby players and as a lobby player you can never speak freely if you assume there to be 14 year olds which you don't want to influence negatively), it could be used as a benefit (adult behavior on the internet is not illegal and can be very popular).
