We do it even a little differently, we have players make up their own short-
description, and display that to other players...

I don't yet know if this will cause much abuse, cause the code is still in
it's testphase

well, i made a list of player-IDcode and a timer, the amount of players
known to
someone is limited by his/her INT and if you reach that limit you'll forget
player you havent seen for the longest time.

this also solves the problem of running trough a list of 200 entries, our
lists never get that large. (and, in reality, can you remember 200 people
by name?)

|Can c do these loops fast and easily? or will this lag the game?

I really think that depends on the speed of you server, i didn't notice more
lag when i tested my code...
