The answer is to just make it prioritize by lower inactivity

What does that even mean? If I'm not constantly ASDFing around the nuke ops I no longer get a fair chance at syndie-borg in favor of a bunch of 'that guy' autists who are going to abuse activity mechanics?

A prompt would be fine. Odds are if they click yes to a prompt they're active and are already willing to play a syndieborg

It should work just as Holoparasites do. Wait a few seconds for ghost players to hit "Yes", then pick one from the list. Completely fair, with no chance of AFKers. Those borgs cost a staggering 80 TC. They need ready and awake players.

We need less prompts, they are seriously annoying, even with the focus steal fix, but without them some roles never fill.

The True answer is cascading escluation. Chat box prompt, followed by hud icon, followed by prompt, followed by forceful extraction of somebody who is active (if the role is important enough).

First come first serve gets the rule, none of this wait shit, as the wait is either too long for the waiting people, or too short and nobody selects it in time.

I like the way /vg/ does prompts, in the chat box as a clickable link.

At worst you have people missing the prompt due to chat spam but it also means only people actively looking will see it and click it.

and for xenomorphs and for putting someone into a braindead antag. But not for nuke ops
