      Few suggestions for pub:

      1) Private freq LTs are ruining the flag game. And I say that as someone who loves to solo lev and LT. There should be a version of purepub that you cannot lolnope that either blocks LTs or private freq LTs. Issue isn't solo levs, just LTs. IIRC, the people who got really upset about purepub buys (which led to introducing lolnope) were solo lev players.

      2) Is there a way the arena could better advertise the hunting freq (99)? In my experience, I'm always having to PM other people (who are clearly also hunting the LT) to join it.

      3) Is it just me, or are ports shorter now? The shorter ports make it harder to terr and solo lev. I prefer the older, longer ones.

      Thanks for reading. Thanks also for making it easier to start a shufflevote---it's really improved the flag game. And thanks for all the other work you all do!
