I would love that. Imagine the fun at guild runs.
"oh look, Y is afk, let's votekick him out!"
Kmnh * Kmn * Kmm * Knn * Knm
Leader of Templar
This comes up once in a while.
I still vote no on votekick. Way too much potential for griefing, IMO.
It's definitely an N-word.
This idea comes up form time to time and every time the majority is against it because:
It will lead to more grief not less. One time a @§$%& is kicked from a party and ten times a pugger is kicked from a guild raid to make space for a late joiner, 5 @§$%&s kick a newbie etc.
And back in the old days the leaders were able to kick in quests afain, but the devs and players decided that the game was better without this option.

Personally I dont mind someone going afk, real life comes first but if they went off as soon as we started, until the end and never said they were afk, I wouldnt let them in my group again. Especially if it is a "group must be together to proceed" type quest.
Great idea OP, maybe we should expand on that and add a World Event Notification that says " Player X was just Kicked for being a DB"
Recall, reform without said DB, get the job done, and add to the DNG List.
this is usually an idea rejected by the community for very good reasons. WoW has the ability to do this but in recent years its been locked down for those reasons. They compromise they have left their players with is that you can vote to do this ONCE per instance, and once only. Only the leader can prompt a vote, and you can't kick the leader. That tends to limit the jerk-factor in both directions.
But I still don't think its a good idea for DDO. If its that bad, recall, drop and reform without them.
How about instead everyone gets a summon pikers button... No one gets greifed and you get to complete w/o wasting your time... Could be "monitered" like /stuck.
Edit: to flesh out this idea more, I would have it be an item in the ddo store for 10-15 tp, that summons a single target to you. I would have it send a "if you don't click in xx time you will be teleported to xx player's location." I would have it require the target to be in the same instance as the caster.

But Truth is eternal, so it can never be old or new. It never ‘was’ or ‘will be.’ It just ‘is.’ It always ‘is.’
NO to this some people keep bringing it up its not going to happen in the past the leader could use it to grief people and it was removed and no a vote isnt better a group of guildies could at the last minute kick someone for one of their buddies and that wouldnt be cool
The ANTI-Realms FANBOI NUKE THE REALMS ITS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO BE SURE
Been suggested before, and it's still a completely effing horrible idea for all the reasons already pointed out.
I'm piking at work.
I disarm traps........with my face!
How do I know that I am better than you are? Because I'm in Thrudh's signature and you're not. That's how.
A popularity contest that would risk removing my chance at loot after I participated and did my share throughout the entire raid? No, thank you.
There is a method for this - if someone is such a PITA, recall out and reform. This is not an unreasonable response to a player who is damaging everyone else's play experience.
PLEASE FIX LAG. PLEASE FIX BUGS.

Are you kicking an AFK/Piker? Give them 1 minute to reject the kick.
Rejecting a live party member? Track kickers for abuse maybe, or require GM intervention, or some such.
But in general, no... more trouble than it is worth.
You forgot to add the issue is not in the known issues list, and you ALSO forgot to advise the player submit a bug report on the issue.
Instead of kicking a piker we should be able to lead some mobs off and shed aggro onto them. Let the mobs do the dirty work.
I say yes, but only in certain circumstances. Say, the member is in a different instance than the rest of the group, or they have been afk for more than 5 minutes.
It's really annoying to start forming for a raid group, and some jerk joined and is sitting out in the vale not paying attention to party, while the leader is trying to convert to raid. Different instance? Boot.
Player still sitting at the beginning 5 minutes into quest? boot.
Better that 1000 afk players derail a quest than to allow ONE innocent pugger to be grief kicked... or something like that.
