    People join the Gaias hostbot and sit there AFK. Then people join, try to votestart, and see they're AFK and leave. Please set this to autostart with fewer players so that AFKs won't stall the game for so many hours

    I agree it should be set to four players.

    That said, you can always kick AFK'ers. Don't feel bad about it, it's them wasting your time, so why not :) And they lose nothing since they can simply join the next game when they come back.

    You can !votekick AFKers (only needs 50% to pass). Auto-starting early would just make it difficult to get full games going, which is what the public bot is for. Try a hosting service like ENT if you want to quickly make small games.

    Usually, new players who join, try to start then leave in a few minutes wouldn't have the patience for Gaias anyway.

    Currently, the autostart is at 6 players. That is a bit weird, considering the game was optimized for 5 players. So while I agree that 4 players for game start is too early, I think it should be reduced to 5 players, as that is the magic number used in the game itself.

    Yeah I appreciateit Kamina, I haven't had the time I'd like to maintain the bot myself, but you're always on top of it :D

    EDIT: there's also a sticky thread though for any bot questions to make it eaiser for others to find
