The problem with clients vote kicking users out of servers is they can just reconnect. There should be a temporary ban on clients who get vote kicked because without it it is a tug of war between the 1 client whom is getting booted & all other clients in the room. The client that keeps getting booted obviously has the advantage in this tug of war.
Anyways, the temp ban should either work by map or by minutes I think.
Thats a good idea but i think its need to be a setting who ask for how many time the guy is kicked before he/her be put in the temporary ban list.
What for? If people vote kick someone out once, you think they would want them to come back?
It's not like they are on a permanent ban list, it should only be for the rest of the map or 30 mins or so, then the person who was booted can come back. If they didn't learn their lesson, then they'll be booted again.
When you will got kicked from noob ppls caue you have high score or for stupid moron just want make some fun. I think that thing of temp ban will be good if you got kicked like 5 time in arrow.
But not from 1 or 2 time. ITs will occur some prob otherwise
Well if that's the case on FFA servers then perhaps the temp ban should just be disabled, I don't see people voting 5 times to kick someone out unless they are just an utter menace.
Perhaps another warning CVar would be in order, at the most I think you should be temp banned on the 3rd boot.
I really think this would just be abused... just like vote for kick is already abused. It would make it even easier for clannies to take over public servers...... Banning is best done by an admin.
Then perhaps a partial name band would be in order, to ban clans from servers (ie, ban the clan tag in persons names). Servers should be logged so admins would be able to tell who did what & since IPs are now logged on connect (1.3), it should not be a problem to ban clans that can not play by the rules.
I think if a person is booted 3 times (4 tops), they should be temp banned & on the ban right before temp ban they should be warned right in console "if you are booted 1 more time you will be temporarily banned". Sometimes you just get wankers in the room that spam text &/or taunts & it gets annoying after awhile, so clients should be given the opportunity to eliminate lamers.
I think permanent banning is done best by an admin but a temp ban is only temp & should be available to users that want to eliminate annoying (this includes whiners that can't stop crying because they are losing) users.
Lastly, if there was a partial name ban to be added it should function regardless of ^1 ^2 ^3 etc; etc. color codes. if someones clan tag was originally ^7C22. you don't want them working around the system by doing a ^1^7C22. type thing.
