Its pretty self explanatory. I think it would be a good idea to be able to pause the console from updating. Like if you need to grab an IP address or other important tidbits. You could use the V key to pause and resume the console. The game wouldn't pause, the radar wouldn't pause, just the console where the kills and chat come up. I think mostly observers would use this. When you un-pause, the console would update to refresh the chat and kills and other stuff.

Thanks

    A valid idea, eval for 2.4.4+

    I don't think it needs a key. The way my IRC client works, it scrolls if you're at the very bottom, and is paused if you are scrolled up.

    This patch does exactly what Kyle said. It also adds a menu option, so that the user can toggle whether they want automatic pausing or not.

    V2 also adds a "scrollpanel pause" action, which when bound to a key does what the OP said (toggles whether the console should be paused or not).
