This topic is about reporting cheaters in-game (while you are playing).

Remember the WHO? WHY? WHAT? rule!

When you report a cheater in-game, make sure you include the nick, reason and what he is using/doing.

WHO = nick of the player
WHY = cheater, map exploiter, troublemaker
WHAT = wallhack, aimbot, speedhack, noflash, nosmoke, radarhack, teamkiller, spawn flasher, ...

Here are the rules:

1. Don't start by asking "[color="#FF0000"]Is any admin here?".
If you see a cheater then just say "[color="#2E8B57"]MegaNoob13 is using aimbot (on server #1)".
If there is admin (or limited admin) on-line he will see this and he will ban the cheater.

2. If you KNOW that there is a FULL admin on-line then put a @ character before your report so that only the admin will see your message.
Only use this if a full admin is on-line. Limited admins can't see "admin text" messages.
Example: "[color="#2E8B57"]@ MegaNoob13 is using aimbot"

3. [color="#2E8B57"]CORRECT / ACCEPTABLE way to report a cheater:

"[color="#2E8B57"]MegaNoob13 is using aimbot"
"[color="#2E8B57"]MegaNoob13 is a cheater (wallhack)"
"[color="#2E8B57"]ban MegaNoob13 he is hacking (aim)"
"[color="#2E8B57"]admin, ban MegaNoob13 speedhacker"

4. [color="#FF0000"]WRONG way to report a cheater:

"[color="#FF0000"]Perplexer, MegaNoob13 is a cheater."
Really? What cheat does he have? If you are a newcommer the admin needs to know what cheat you think he is using. If you'll say AIMBOT the admin will take it much more seriously than if you say WH or NOFLASH. Also, don't include admin's nickname in your report.

"[color="#FF0000"]Ban him fast!!"
Who? Why? What? Relax and include the player's name and why you think he should be banned so fast. What did he do ? There is absolutely no hurry. We have logs of every player connecting to any Setti server. Once a player connects, that connection is logged and if he cheated 1 hour ago, if he is cheating now or if he will cheat 1 hour from now, it doesn't matter, even if he changes nick. We can check the log, get his NICK, IP or STEAM ID and ban him whenever we want to.

"[color="#FF0000"]Perplexer ban MegaNoob13"
Don't say my nick out loud or the cheater will know that I'm an admin and will come back when I am not on the server. Also include the reason WHY you think MegaNoob13 should be banned (see above).

"[color="#FF0000"]cheater!!!!!"
Read the WHO? WHY? WHAT? rule above!

"[color="#FF0000"]Are you blind Perplexer ?!?"
That will just get YOU kicked/banned. See above on how to correctly report a cheater.

"[color="#FF0000"]He won't ban him because he is in his team lol."
That will just get YOU kicked/banned. If I get a hint that you know there's a cheater playing and you're not saying anything, I'll hold you just as responsible for the degradation in gameplay. See above on how to correctly report a cheater.

1st: How about just copy-paste. 2nd: "      " cheater, aim.

EDIT: if i see player with empty space I ban no questions asked.

You are probably missing a font pack in Windows. Many players use strange UTF8 characters in their names. Check install instructions for language pack.

Even in Setti server name there was once this black star character which some players saw as just a square: http://www.fileforma.../2605/index.htm


Great tutorial. Already came useful today:

20:33:35: "h@zE" say_team "killer specc arsen"

20:33:56: "k1ller" say "h@ze: read sticky post at ban/unban board"

20:34:06: "h@zE" say "k ^^"

If you are using unreadable name than you have something to hide(aimbot for example) :)

I remember this.
We where playing nuke.
Someone was cheating. ANSTA was yelling: PERP BAN HIM. FUCKING BAN HIM. And so on.
Perp was like. WHO? WHY? WHAT? (and/or still alive)

I waited till he was dead (or we where all alive, dont remember...:P)
And said: "player" is cheating (aimbot)

Is it me. or was this the same day :)?

:lol: ...I know they stop playing and check the new insider. I saw this several times.
If anybody from staff will review the ban requests and reapply ban-hammer on all servers solve the problem I guess.

To record a demo write "record Demoname" into console. To finish the demo write "stop" into console. To see the demos write "demoui" into console.
