This is not an area to debate the pros and cons of proposed features. It is an area for people to suggest new features for either TW or TWGS. I will either add the proposed feature to my planned features list, or explain my reasons for passing on the feature at this time. Features added to the list can be voted on so I can gauge people's interest.

Unread post Button layout for "Stop Server"
Hey while I like to push buttons... the Stop Server button seems alarmingly close to the toggle buttons used for switching between views for "Log", "Grid", and "Stats"... Maybe the Start/stop button could be smaller or you could swap the log/grid/stats group with the box to disable logins...??

I've only accidentally stopped the server once by accident a couple of weeks ago but i've caught myself several times almost clicking on it since then. :)

Yeah, I see your point, but at least it will warn you if you attempt to stop it while someone is online.

I was thinking an admin connection to the twgs server should be immune to inactivity timeout.

Also the "TWCC - Trade Wars Local" window cannot be minimized and it has a minimize button. it doesnt do anything.
