The ban invoked yesterday by another limited admin for AimBot. I'm 100% sure it was an accurate ban since i found another ban about the same player from another community by SMAC. But where is the permban request? Nowhere. I have to contact with the admin and find out what's his excuse.
As we can see if i start removing admin rights right now for not following the limited admin rules 100%, there will be no admins left for the CS:GO servers. What am i supposed to do then? I will tell you what i'm supposed to do. I will say the following:
As limited admins it's good to make permban requests! Not just good for me. It's not about me or the rules or whatever. It's for the good of yourselves and the rest of the players in the servers. In this way previously banned cheaters will be prevented from getting in the servers again. And if those cheaters are smart, they will try to hide their cheats next time! I'm saying that because i know it! I have experience on that! I have banned a regular who was also limited admin and he was cheating for ~3 years here! He admitted it himself to me in a pm! Also that motherfucker Gamble. I was hunting him for months if not years.
On the other hand, if there is some serious reason like university studying, working, or whatever reason that sounds serious, then i will understand and i will try to help by checking your bans at SourceBans, googling the SteamID of the potential cheater you banned or whatever.
Then! About the admin panel useage! Use it fucking wisely! I have so fucking many stuff to do at Setti on a daily basis and instead i focus on them i always have to focus on stuff like this! Kick/ban/mute for the fucking following cases only!
- Cheater: Spactate first until you are convinced the player is indeed cheating.
- Teleporter: If the player is lagging/teleporting due to his high ping, no action is required since the high ping kicker plugin will get rid of him. If the player is lagging/teleporting due to very low fps and he has no fucking brain to understand that the game is not for his fucking potato PC, then kick him. If he comes back, ban him. It's extremely annoying when you are trying to kill a player who is teleporting and you can't even hit him because of that!
- Chat/Mic spammers: If many players are annoyed and complaining, mute/gag/silence the spammer. If it's just you who is annoyed, use the God damn scoreboard, right click on his name and then select "Block communication". It's that simple! That will prevent you from listening to him and watching what he types on chat.
- Insulters: Everyfuckingbody insults in the fucking CS series as well as almost in every fucking game. Everyone! Including me. If that happens once, try not to bother! Try not to use the admin panel! Try to think that you don't have admin rights, there is no admin panel so you have to deal with it in the same way like every other player if he was you. Or just use the "Block communication" feature mentioned above and you are done! But! If that happens all the time or often, warn the player, ask him to stop, if he doesn't stop mute/gag/silence him and if he continues, start with 5 minutes ban.
Use the damn admin panel wisely! We are trying to bring players to Setti not to make them leave! And what i have said already in this post goes to every fucking admin! I am not talking about someone specifically! I'm talking generally!
And because i am not someone who is like "all of you make mistakes, i don't", even i make fucking mistakes too! We are fucking human beings! I can have bad day too! I can get stressed due to all those i have to administrate and manage here, too! Shit happens! But because i am head admin, that doesn't mean i am something like a God or something! It doesn't mean that i mustn't/can't be judged! So if you ever see me in a bad mood or something and i do a mistake in the servers, advise me to take a fucking break! I want to be a God damn good admin! Not bad! And i ask all of you to help me on that.
Also! One last thing! Pay fucking attention to the in game reports about cheaters or whatever! The admins exist to solve problems! If players report you a problem and you don't even give a damn shit, why should i give a shit if i remove your admin rights?!
That's all i had to say.
