    allow server admins to toggle /away in user name

    Some people setup servers and are afk alot/all of the time. If your not playing on DOA's server, you might not know if that person is afk or waiting for others. If the owners could toggle /away /afk and have it idk change the name color or stand out so people know they are not playing.

    Some people have AFK/Spec kinds of clantags (I personally have Spec|), but nobody tends to care what you've got as the clantag if they need players. I'd F1 this if that could be allowed to include a /speconly thing so subscribers could spectate invisibly on any server (Or just be set to a "spec-only" spot)

    i have the /away tag if you need it :P

    anyway, allowing invisible specs sounds unnecessary and just for creepers, will never happen.

    imo just create a tag and dont care what people say, if you cant/don't wanna join you just simply won't join. period.

    The only reason I suggest the invisible thing (or just a "spec-only" section) is because it'd stop people from kicking you just for not joining. (They supposedly think that it shows the spectator as a number in the server, but that's not true. Proof)

    simple solution then, make it visible if you're ready to join (not a queue though), or just there to spec like on duel servers, voila.

    Well as I said, I'm saying this would be available on *any* server, so you can watch your friends in tier 3 play a game without having to use another account.
    As it stands, us tier 4 players can't even spectate a lot of games because we're not allowed into the tier 3 servers at all. With this addition, we'd be able to watch without the hassle of getting harassed to join.
