Re: List Server questions

Ok. What about the future? I see at https://wiki.bzflag.org/List_Server that you are going toward a system based on LDAP - something called BZAuthd #1 Is it (or will it be) possible to run a BZAuthd private server? #2 Only if so: Is it (or will it be) possible that the BZAuthd private server connect...

Re: Wiki being phased out

As to why that is good reason.

Also how does one compile using plug-ins, as another example not in readme file(s) or into documentation - yet.

While that looks good, unless I am missing something, it is only for computers running Windows - Not cross platform. :(

Re: a new idea - capture the zones

The closest thing to what is being talked about, I point to Plug-in Releases -> All Hands On Deck (AHOD)

Capture the flag, bring it to the neutral base, and all of your other team mates must be also be at that base (zone) for a win.
