Fixed, thanks!

The following message is not correct as it gives jugement where there shouldn't be any :

In English :
Sorry, but ${player_name2} doesn't want to play with ${player_name}.

is translated by :
Désolé, mais ${player_name2} ne veut pas jouer avec ${player_name}.

This message should be modify as it doesn't reflect correctly the action made by the one expelling someone from a table. (e.a. if someone just doesn't answer anymore, but we gladly would like to play with him).

Proposed modification :
${player_name2} ejects ${player_name} from the table.

And in French,
${player_name2} a éjecté ${player_name} de la table.

This is not a translation issue.

Where should issues like this be raised? I agree with LordJeux that this message doesn't convey what it ideally would. It sounds more negative, where in most situations when I boot somebody from my table it is because they are unresponsive, not because I don't like to play with them.
