The colour of each player's scoreboard entry shows to which team the player currently belongs. The users listed at the bottom are observers (could be waiting to join, or just... observing) and have no tank in play in the game.  Observers can interact textually; they can send player or team [[message|messages]] and can issue [[Slash_Commands|server commands]] as permitted by their [[Global_Registration#Callsign_Markers|status]].

==Extended Observer Info==
 
The 'Extended Observer Info' option found in '''Options->GUI Settings''' was added in v2.0.16. It allows the observing player to get more detailed information about the player they are currently following or tracking. Player tank speeds show up by their names on the scoreboard while some more detailed stats show up in the upper right corner. In addition, tank speeds also appear below player names if Tank Labels are enabled.

==Spawning==
 
Spawning is the act of your [[Tank|tank]] reappearing. This can be caused by two events:
 
*Joining a server allows you to spawn immediately.
 
*After dying, a delay takes place, after which you may spawn.
 
 
Spawn locations are determined by the server, thus they may be modified by plugins such as [[Airspawn]].
