    Ive been wondering if it where possible to add a medium to what
    commands administrators already have, perhaps another command
    that caters to the the old 3 strikes & your out rules.

    thrax had an idea a while back that I still think would be both hilarious,
    & effective.

    Although we already have effective commands to persuade players
    into acting properly such as mute, slap, kick, & ban in the worst scenario..

    I would like to see a 5th solution medium wich would strike the
    player while in game at the turn end with a lightning strike instantly
    killing the player and making it harder for him to win that game.

    perhaps forming a mini storm cloud over the misbehaved players tank
    in wich the lightning strikes from @ the same time posts a bold message
    on their screen:

    player1 was warned by the administrator.

    (warning from above strike #1 please behave.)
    (warning from above strike #2 stop misbehaving.)
    (warning from above strike #3 your last warning.)

    If it happens the 4th time the player is auto kicked off the server
    and banned from that server for 12 hrs.

    not likely they will even have to be muted or slapped,
    and it ads a funny factor that clearly puts them on the spot.

    Having this feature also saves the spoils of administrators even
    having to argue with that player what they are doing wrong..
    why why why etc etc.. wich always ALWAYS leads to a big debate
    and butting of heads.

    just a thought.

    i like that idea kind of cool aswell with visuals to the other players that something is being done

    But because it makes lightning… wouldn’t that make it more open for abuse..?

    I like this idea, but then I don’t. It would be good in anything but the official scorched servers. I would think that the 3 strikes would have players trying to test their bounds. It is apparent the 3 strikes would help the server admin…..ah…little. People would still clash heads and banter on to prove that the player commited an offense.

    Just attaching a effect-action to the Admin slap would be more
    than enough; lightning, meteor, laser from above… something.

    players wouldn’t need the warning at all if they followed
    common-sence and respect, but that’s not always the case.

    But this whole thread may be moot, since apparently muting and
    banning have no effect on players at all..
    They continue the attitudes and practices that cause it.

    Actually.. they DO have an effect on players with a static IP address.

    most administrators are more mature then that..

    @ first.. yes, you may see cbx & willis striking eachother like madmen
    but thats mearly a laugh between friendships that go back far.

    The point is to make it noticable to others that *an* administrator
    is in the game or watching from above without having to give themselves
    away as being the one to argue with and, spoiling their game.

    & both @ the same time showing others something is being done about it,
    & showing others what happens to those who misbehave so they don’t
    try to learn from bad examples by traveling down the same road.

    lol 😮

    anyways , i think it’s a great idea, with the only mod that the lightning doesn’t hurt the player, it just shows e1 that that player is behaving in a bad manner.
    💡 you could have the 3 lightnings= ban/kick working anyways and the whole thing would work quite well…

    Huh??

    First, I think it could work in SOME cases but it is every1 case and its situation and its events. Every case is something different. Thzat what I have leant in the 2 years of being game admin. A mute (no way im writing it 🙂 ) is, in some cases, better then a warn+kick.
    Though, I got a different idea: to flag a player that did anything that requierd admin action. That player will auto-flag and will be “marked” to inform the players and the other admins. Some sort of “keep an eye”.
    Today there is the admin flag command but it barely been used…

    Second, shotzo or any1 else can explain me shotzo’s reply that in the upper part of this reply?? because I’m lost in it..

    How about Black Spoting its a pirate thing that Ive seen used in a game there would be a black spot right above the persons head and showed that they where being put to shame by a admin.
    It also was in the book Treasure Island and the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.

    Just in case anyone’s interested, I have something to say…

    I’m inclined to disagree with shockwave out of principle. (It’s just the way the World works). But…

    I think you need to separate rule enforcement from game play.

    (Familiarity breeds contempt my young shockwave).

    Point is, if you want people to take you seriously, you need to take it to the next level. (Like, beyond silly penalties that are worth a chuckle).
