How should this implementation be designed? Design wise if this is implemented, we could possibly seperate servers into tabs. E.g.:

  • All
  • Internet
  • Favorites
  • LAN
  • Custom Servers


Alternative design is to stick to what we currently have for Custom Servers:


  • Use different background colors.
  • Add a star icon for favorite servers, replacing the country flag.


I'm concerned the old design may quickly become too cluttered or visually noisy and difficult to read. It's just enough to be "okay" for Custom Servers, but adding any more things like Favorites may not be ideal.

Another background color might not even be necessary. I've actually used the custom servers feature as a way to pin a specific server to the top of the list even though it's advertised on the master myself. Might even be possible to just rename the custom servers feature to "favorites" or "pinned servers" and add some context menu options to add/remove. ("Custom servers" isn't really a great name for the existing feature when you really think about it.)

"Pinned servers" it is then. I'll get onto it.

Implementation of this was harder than I originally thought, thanks to the problem described in issue 0003477. However, the "pinned servers" feature should be ready through following commits:

Feature:
1.https://bitbucket.org/Doomseeker/doomseeker/commits/6d131529348261c5dd68a15c705d798b6365475a [^] - "Custom Servers" renamed to "Pinned Servers"

Bugs:
1. Custom servers would throw off the server counters (visible in bottom-right corner of the main window). This problem also affected previous versions of Doomseeker.
2. Ownership issues and "muting" Server objects as explained in 0003477.

Extras:
1. Allow to disable custom servers without deconfiguring them, allowing for easy re-enable
2. Follow-up to the custom servers "enable/disable" feature, providing backward-compatibility with previous versions of Doomseeker.
