Uh, correct me if I'm wrong, but Jeff says that RIGHT NOW, the way the 
code is at this MOMENT, it saves a player when entering AND when leaving 
the game. Now, why would it do this? Sure the player has read the message 
of the day but I think you missed my point. The point is, what is the 
need for saving a player when you enter and leave a game? Leaving 
sure...but entering?!?! There is NO code for whether the MOTD has been 
read or not in there yet...
