I was reading the list of voting commands and came across this:

vote-classic-mega

Enable/disable classic style mega-health.

What is this? What's classic style vs whatever other style there is?

In RQ, if you pick up mega it'll respawn in 60 seconds.

In classic-mega, the mega won't respawn until the players health who picked it up is 100 or less. In addition, on levels with multiple megas, the more megas you pick up the more your health rots.

Wow, the things you learn. Never knew this. Guess I won't hoard the mega healths anymore!

I'd say it depends on the situation. In classic megahealth rules, you might want to let it tick down to 100 if it's about to get to 100 before picking up the next one. I think in any situation you should pick up the mega at least to prevent an enemy to get it, even if the second 100 health (and the remaining bonus from the first) counts down faster.
