waiting list - admin ability to manage

as we are a relatively small group and sometime only 2 or 3 tables running.
occasionally someone disconnects and gets sent to bottom of waitlist for that table,
it then becomes very difficult and disruptive to get that player his seat back.
if the admin had the ability to manage the waitlist like we do for the tournament lists that would be great.
i could then just reorder the list properly with out affecting the game.

Disconnects get logged out if they don't reconnect within 2 minutes. Would it help you if you could increase that to a longer period? That would be easier to implement and wouldn't require any intervention on your part.

yes that would probably help some.

seems complicated to implement my way.
other issues i have could be resolved if you did it, but they are definitely unique to our particular situation, so not conducive to a global change.
for example if 2 tables running and someone is multi tabling they give up their seat to someone who doesn't have one. But hard to get them back up to top of list if others aren't watching chat. in which case i have to get involved (not that i mind) to boot a player off the list.

but the additional time to disconnect definitely would help the legit player who lost seat when his laptop dies.

thanks

A "max disconnect minutes" setting has been added in 5.09.
