Vote System

I was gonna just pm Fern and Phil, but decided may be better in the open. [if anyone can rewrite this more concisely I'd be grateful]

The 80% / 15 mins vote make it difficult re bots off and probably affect SW votes too.

Should OZ cater to Zulu's lack of self control re hurling obscenities in response to mild K/D comments? If you can't handle the heat get out of the kitchen. He can choose how to react - isn't muting other players an option? He lets them needle him and reacts explosively which also puts him in the wrong. It might be in response, but it's disproportionate, inappropriate, and encourages more trolling

I'm fairly neutral and have some sympathy, but Zulu often expresses scorn if you disagree with him. This evening I said we should take responsibility for our actions not 'he made me do it', his reply: my IQ must be about 5 and a few other insults. F1 to putspec doesn't come from nowhere. Given Zulu's behaviour it's understandable (even reasonable) it happens now & then. If votespec gets abused, admins have dealt with it.

Re Yella - the problem is if majority enjoy sillyness and f1, then that's what people want. There is a balance ofc, but Yella's actions are fairly harmless and when he oversteps can be warned. I asked him not to vote change map when he's just arrived, and TC has kicked if he mucks around too much.


In summary:
perhaps changing voting so quick was a little hasty. Can we have 3 strikes and out or something? or maybe change it back after a week so we understand that our actions on the server can have negative results.

Might change the time back to 2 or 3 mins yes 15 mins is a bit harsh but the % was not enough before the change so had to be uped

Why is putspec in the vote list anyway? Laggards drop out in a min or two, and TKing only lasts for 2-3 complaints.. so just take it out. Voting is not abused in any other way.

Also, could we get NBA Jam and Pac Man back into rotation? If so, only 10-15 mins duration, because otherwise they will be server killers. Like North Pole. The Jeff Dahmer of ET Maps.


Haemer_b1, Silly ctf and Bergen can probably all go, I never see them get played.

- OK so could we have putspec removed (I'd prefer to keep it, but consensus seems remove), and no vote time limit please? or maybe 1-2 mins?
- And like 60% vote passes? I don't think the bots ever vote (not sure), and 80% is a bit high eg 5-1 vote fails.

- Also Railgun has its place, but can we have Adler again as default.

- And Adlernest added to maplist, might not be on.
- And Goldrush SW too please.

Some feedback/suggestions from players on server:
- Force maxpackets 100
- Force rate 25000
probably better in a diff thread, but I mention it since we're here.
I don't know enough to have a view - apparently everyone has a good enough connection these days so there's no need to have 30 maxp.

Cheers

With the rate and maxpackets they are not forced due to people will have different connection so they can change it to what they can handle only zonemegs, hunkmegs and soundmegs only to do with our custom etpub mod
the vote time limit is 5 min and 70% for pass
With adler it is in there as apart of the rotation but wont be changed back to default as if we remove it the server wont turn back on till change the default map to a map we have in the list that is why i chose one of the 6 standard maps
So if you want choose a different standard map and we will change it
Vote spec is disable because we have a 1 min inactivity timer in place

Is it possible to have a SW mode thats a full old school 6 map campaign?
Also when you join a SW match you have 0xp, this is quite a disadvantage can it be fixed somehow?
Thanks

With sw we'll make it easier to lvl up only did it so people start on an even playing field with 0 xp and sure we can make it just the original 6 maps :)

Thanks Phill not sure if im misinterpreting the answer but if you are already connected and the vote gets up and it changes to SW you keep you full xp and stars
If you connect after stopwatch has started you have 0xp and stars...
The other day there were 3 of us on one team with 0xp and on the other team all generals with 4 star everything so it took us twice as long to plant as they took to defuse so it was far from even
