When someone writes text in multiplayer, his name is displayed in the color of his fraction. When someone is spectating, his name is displayed in white.

However, when you droid your own side, wait until your turn is over and then undroid your own side in the turn of another human player, and write something, your name will be colored in the color of the other human's fraction until you have to move again.

It could even be possible to abuse this (I did not test it); you could write field descriptions, for example, and everybody would think that the other human player wrote it.

In my opinion, the bug has a very low severity because the "abuse" is only theoretical and only the game admin can do it because he is the only one who is able to droid players.
