i think you guys should actually listen to hitech and give him the info.  think about it, how often will you see messages.  what he asked for is the best solution.

If it's between how it is now, and popup messages, I'd take how it is now.

2nd. I've just gotten used to the way it is now. I don't use tabs or all that fancy stuff just all of it in one window. Works ok for me. I think a popup in an intense fight would be too distracting.

Having the kill spam in its own channel to be turned on or off at the individual player discretion is certainly the best possible solution and as far as I can tell has not been opposed by anyone.  However, the center display was the only option offered.  You would only get the popup when you killed someone or something or a field is captured, so I think it would be manageable.  But, again, it would be much better if it is the player's option.

You read small.

So does that mean you do oppose the player having the option to turn it on or off?  First one if so.

You can turn it off. Many people have posted all over the boards how to do it.

If you mean you can turn off just the kill spam, you are so wrong.  You have to turn off all system messages so you lose the useful information along with the kill spam.  That is also posted all over the boards.  Note that the beginning of this thread was a wish to separate the kill spam from the other information.

Turn off the host... or spam as you call it. It is the way it was for years early on.
