For kicking players with a blank call sign, why don't we set up a system like the hunt feature. You press "u" (or some other designated key) scroll through the list of players select the offender, type the reason why he is being kicked/banned and Presto!!

Not very hard to do, i'd do it if I knew how, but I only know qbasic. (dos) :D no use in today's world

Viper: It's harder to type the callsign than to type the IP :)

I did make a patch to just auto-complete "/poll ban|kick" that would just append the current hunt selection, but it never did get accepted, but then again it is understandable as it's a cheap hack since it takes advantage of something not meant for this purpose.

and the kick thing comes up...scroll thru with arrow
keys and when the blank callsign comes up hit enter...thier kicked...

really? for me (i remember atleast) that pressing "o" you still have to type the players name. And it is case sensitive, which can be annoying.

And keep in mind that if you use keyboard control to play the game, you have to move the mouse before you try pressing left and right to change what appears in ‘o’ or the chat command ‘.’. Nasty little bug for those of us who prefer the arrow keys, and it often costs me a life as I need to spawn to register mouse movement.
