As the title says, Could we remove this and perhaps make it show like a tag or similar, Currently the text fills A LOT of space!.

i have been thinking it over a little and i can't really imagine any good reasons for having it as text in the title.

(on a offnote/offtopifc, can't we remove that awful MG_ in front of peoples names in the lobby)

1. There is no special code for headless servers yet, so they have tell somehow that they are headless.
2. The MG_ in front of players name is technically needed to avoid conflicts with freenodes irc usernames.

1. A 'headless' bit / flag / tag would be semantically nicer indeed. We just don't have it, yet. I think it's a good small project a new contributor could start with.
2. It's not technically needed to display it to users, however.

I already removed the MG_ and _nnn in the buttons text (its still there internally though, you could see it on any irc client).
Still have to figure it out how to do it in chat.
