-First !bitchslap
-For all examples the players name will be Jones101.
You don't need to type whole name, as long as it is unique string, it will be matched to player, in case there are few, you will get list of matching playernames. For those players who have number at the beginning of their name, or just too hard to type, you can use "/playerlist" in console and use player's ID# on the list to do the same. Added benefit of using ID#s instead of playernames is that experienced cheaters, and those who have IQ higher than their shoe-size, can't see as easily that you are on to them. Then again, really good cheaters check their player ID# in console just for that reason.

Also good idea is to use "!id" right at the beginning of demo, or just before the ban command to record players @ID and IP# for reference.

If you know the rule number you want to enforce, you can do this:
...
Otherwise, you can type:
!w Boa racism for rule 1
!w Boa stacking for rule 2
!w Boa argue for rule 3
!w Boa name for rule 5
!w Boa spam for rule 7
!w Boa lang for rule 8

Still trying to find the correct word for the rest......
 

maybe I got the solution:
at least in the germany server the command !warns is available, which shows you all shortcuts for warnings:
(SPEC) ubernoob: !warns
console_tell: (b3): [pm] Warnings: rule9, rule8, rule3, rule2, rule1, rule7,
rule6, rule5, rule4,
console_tell: (b3): [pm] >adv, afk, ci, racism, color, fakecmd, tk, nocmd,
spec, spawnfire, cuss,
console_tell: (b3): [pm] >jerk, sfire, spam, rule10, stack, lang, obj, name,
language, profanity,
console_tell: (b3): [pm] >camp, recruit, badname, spectator, argue

So, I did read this thread and I have some tips for You. I know, it may be impolite to do this, but I want to share part of my current's knowledge with You, guys, since You seem to have a bit "fresh" management (no offense meant). I will write this in points since there's a lot to point out :3

1. Your current group levels (ranks)
I've seen that You've Group 0 for Guests (which is standard and common worldwide), but You're using Group 2 for Registered Users. I, personally, recommend You to use Group 1 (User) for everyone who types !register. Then, You have spare rank (Group 2) for Your regular, well-known players. You can use this group 2 to reward some players for activity, helpfulness and show them that You respect them (by putting them into group 2, which will be exclusively for such players).

Also, You withdrew ranks 20 and 40. Once again, I recommend You to use them. Rank 20 can be used as a group for all Admin candidates, as a probation. Then, if they will prove themselves worthy, You can move them to group 40, Admin. Then Rank 60 can become a rank for "experienced in battle", veterans. Also rank 80 and even very rare and underrated rank 90 (which, I assume is not well known for most of You), Master Admin, can be granted for best of the best in Your Team. That's all about ranks.

2. Commands
Please, allow Your Admins to ease their work by modyfing most of Your commands and adding an aliases (short forms) of it. For example, !m for mute, !pb for permban, !tb, !l for lookup, !wr for warnremove etc. It's easier and faster to type, while reducing typo propability to almost 0.

3. Mistakes made in discussion
- !makereg does not mean "make registered" but it was created as "make regular" since it's putting an user to group 2.
- someone asked for UrT's programming language. I don't know for sure if it is C as someone replied (prolly iPWN if I'm not wrong). But You can't modify UrT so knowledge of UrT's programming language won't help You. You need to learn B3's programming language, which is Python (harder to learn than C, IMHO)
- You were wondering, why time of temporary ban after too much warnings was different each time. It depends on configuration. More precisely, configuration of warn types. More serious offences increases duration of auto-ban. Also, more recent warning have more influence than less recent ones. If someone received a warning or two yesterday, and new one today, this fresh will affect more than these past from yesterday.
- command !force player lock can be also used when some player is abusing team switching (doing it few times within several seconds)

That's all that I have to suggest / add to this topic. Sorry that I've bumped it, but I think my contribution is worth it.

Thanks for reading :)

Hello.

First, be welcome to this community.

Thank you for taking your time writing this.

Now, about your particular points, lets see:

First, about the B3 levels, I am aware that I can use the groups for more things, and as you suggested, probably modifying this to get a better "segmentation" of the types of players around is a good idea. Unfortunately, this community hasn't received new members since long time ago, and most of the candidates (self-proposed ones) to a "better" position are just new players which I can't trust just like that. This, as you may know takes time. If the community were more active, with more members and so on, probably this kind of grouping would be useful.

Now, about the commands, AFAIK most of your examples have that shortcuts. Probably some other admin can refresh my memory on this subject.

Then, about modifying the server code of UrT, some of this code can be modified, but nothing about the Quake engine (or the "core", to say it in some way). I already did modifications a couple of times, and patched/compiled the server software several times with new security patches or useful features (Rambetter patches mostly). This is C code. Some other groups probably have reverse engineered the core of the server software to allow more game modes (that freeze/zombie/unlimited-ammo and so on).
And indeed, learning to modify and create plugins for B3 could be the most useful thing now, since modifying UrT (legally) is really limited.

About the !makereg, then there isn't a quick way to put players in the group 1?

And no problem, was a surprise to know someone bumped this topic to write some useful things.

Welcome, Coyote!

Yeah, the shortcuts do work here :)

And no, you're not being impolite...Just being helpful, which we appreciate here :)

Cheers!

Thanks for warm welcome :) I appreciate that.

If You want to put someone in group, You have few options:
- re-config !register, so it will put into proper rank. (may require editing code)
- You can also use !putgroup command to switch them between ranks.
- You can use !su (!runas) but it's quite rude to force somebody to register themselves.
- There's also some software called "Echelon" which can help in managing users and bans. You can set specific level of every user in database. But I don't know if You can do it on massive scale (many users in one-click). If You have small community yet, it would be easier to re-organise their levels, but it requires some time You have to spend on it.

I don't know more ways to do it.

Oh, I just realised something useful. Sorry for double post.

There are 3 different ways of executing a command. I don't know if You guys know this already.
- !command = this will execute a command privately (result of command will be shown only for You). For example !xlrstats, !nextmap
- @command = this will execute a command publicly (result of command will be shown for all players in chat area). For example @xlrstats, @nextmap
- &command = this will execute a command publicly, BUT(!) result will be shown for all player AT THE CENTER OF THE SCREEN. Remember this because some commands will spam entire screen and annoy players. Examples of good use: &nextmap


Also, I remember that some of You, Admins, want to be sneaky and often work under alias. I have some tip for You how to improve Your sneaky beaky likeness.
1. Open console (~), type /playerlist and search for Your nick (check Your #id)
2. (For example Your #id is 0) Now type /tell 0 !command, for example /tell 0 !w Player language.
3. If You want to be more sneaky, You can use !mask command, but it seems to be only for Superadmin (lvl 100) :/ It can mask Your Admin level, hiding You from everyone. Even Admins. If someone will check Your level and You're masked, You will appear as a masked level (for example User).

Didn't know about the mask thing.

Also, I didn't know about the & prefix to show bigtext stuff. Pretty interesting.

About the tell command, it works with numbers and also with a prefix of your current nick.

Thanks for these tips Coyote.

Thanks for these, Man :)

The /tell #id number is useful, but I find that /tell me is much more convenient and faster since you don't have to do /playerlist and look for your id number :)

/tell me !pb ApplePieCrunch pinghax

I usually use /playerlist when there are similar names among the players and must avoid banning the wrong player.

e.g.

1. ApplePie
2. APplEpIEeE
3. ApplePieCrunch

I'd type: /tell me !pb 3 pinghax

It's fun to use @alias for players who think the could get away with something by using a different name :)

e.g.

ApplePie: You've already been temp banned many times for language, why do you keep doing it?
player: Huh? I don't know what you're talking about. This is the 1st time EVER I connected to this server...
ApplePie: @alias player

 ;D ;D ;D
