[Suggestion] AFK but up for public TS channel

Not really 'Public Server Feedback' as such but this seemed like the most fitting forum.

Quite regularly, when sat in Teamspeak, see quite a lot of users connect and disconnect straight away. Assumingly, this is because they see that nobody is playing on the public. Most the time, if all these users stayed in teamspeak, there would actually be a good enough number to start the public server going. How about a dedicated teamspeak channel where users who are up for public server could idle? This would allow users to see how many other people are up for a game.

We could use the AFK channel for this but that could get confusing since it would then serve two purposes. Alternatively, could use the 'Public Joining Lobby' but again this may confuse.

The more I think about this, the more I think we don't actually need a dedicated teamspeak channel for this, just persuade people to stay in teamspeak. Though I thought I would throw the idea out there if people think a dedicated teamspeak channel for this purpose might encourage people to stick around in teamspeak.

Back when I was an admin on PR, if the server was empty I would join the server anyway, get on mumble but change my name so I would add 'Seeding' to the end of it so people could see I was seeding the server and I would be back when there were more players on. When others joined, they would often do the same thing to.

It'd be even easier to do this in TS. Just log into the public, get your kit together, sit down outside the crate HESCOs, tab out to TS and add 'Seeding' to your name. Bish, bash, bosh. Gets people into the server and populates it, nice and easy to see that people are around and will come back if you poke them.

Dewch ymlaen, ddim ond y gorau ydy dda ddigon.
