Okay, I think I've got a really good idea here.
The motivation behind this development is discussed in the head post of the link below. I think it is an important issue that needs to be addressed for the sake of better team play. The idea of how to fix the problem, though, changed throughout the course of the thread. This link directs you to my conclusion
about how to address it (thanks to the ideas of others in the thread):http://www.conquerclub.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=101027&p=2295109#p2295109
I think this would be a pretty feasible modification, but I could be wrong. Just move the chat box up above the map, and team play will be enhanced by all users of BOB.
