One option that would avoid the queue being populated with everyone's
name at the beginning would be for the moderator to be given the
option to view everybody that has joined, even if they have not added
themselved to the queue. Of course only the moderator would be able to
see this. Would this fulfill the functionality you are seeking?
The problem I see with what you have proposed is that the queue must
be cleaned up after everyone joins (not a big problem) and if someone
joins late, there's no way to determine if that person wants in the
queue or is just announcing themselves.
