It sucks to lose 1500 points to antes when you rush away from the computer to help a sick kid or something without clicking "Leave seat" or closing the tab.

this is a good idea for a more important reason. i was playing the other day and noticed someone with 0 points in front of me was away, and that the result was my pot was always that much bigger. someone could easily invite their friends with 0pts to sit in front of them creating a huge starting pot for them. its an easy way to gain huge amts of points, and should really be prevented. two people away in front of you can really boost your score. and anyone can be doing this without much notice since the people away always stay in, and generate points for the person in front of them, without ever losing points themselves.

another idea is to easily see who the biggest point losers are from the ones that have 0 points and maybe ban their ip for a while. if say, they had 0 points, but lost 1000... its obvious somethings not right. what does being in a game, and being 'away' for that long accomplish, other than to aid someone else?

i think away people should participate in the pot, and shouldn't be allowed to type in guesses, that would also prevent new players who get away without noticing from passing everyttime and be clueless about what's the problem

I agree. After '4 aways' you automatically leave the seat. Its a hassle when the system dumps you out or you get frozen in a room. Can't go off and do something else in case you are still sat in and losing points! Can somethimes take me another 10 mins to get logged back in and 'unseat' myself.

I think this is a good idea too. So many times a person is 'away' and there are soooo many waiting to sit in.

I do not know if this is possible as there are computer issues to deal with, but agree in an ideal world it would be a good thing.

I've been doing this as much as possible as the tables are often full now. When I notice someone has been gone awhile I will clear there spot. If you see anyone idle for very long let me know.
