First you have to make the kick button appear in the talk track.
Currently it looks like a '?'. (I think you need to be at a position
in votespace, e.g. by navigating in the vote track.) I'm not sure if
you need to be at a *particular* position, but I think so. I think it
harvests messages for a single group (candidate and immediate voters).
Then you press it.
Probably the fix is to make the button more self-explanatory.
(1) Maybe it should have something like a tooltip.
Harvest messages for candidate C's group
(2) Maybe also enabled/disabled state instead of being added/removed,
because that transition can be disorienting:
-------- no kick button
-------- ? button appears
Wheras this one is more informative:
-------- - button disabled
-------- ? button enabled
(3) Maybe also a special tooltip for the disabled state:
Cannot harvest messages, no group selected
What do you guys think?
