  • 'Info' button advertisement

    Is it possible to have the server display "[TGNS] Hit M > INFO > TGNS Primer to acclimate yourself to our server rules" or something similar periodically on the screen? When there's a number of regs on its easier to educate new people on the rules but a periodic advertisement of the info button would be handy for the many ? that wander in the server. Also what would be helpful for the active guardians with an "A" is a server broadcast like full admins can currently do:

    Admin| Free TV language rules on server apply, please ease up on the language.
    Admin| F4ing is not allowed on this server, please concede with your team or stop fighting.

    Could be open to abuse, but I can't imagine it would be a problem. There's probably lots of other stuff on the plate to tinker with first, so just another idea to improve server experience.

    I've added the display you requested. Great idea.

    I've also given Guardians access to sh_pm, and I've added the messages you mentioned to the menu under that command.

    sh_pm isn't my code. I'm not crazy about the implementation. Message yourself from the menu to see the full text of each choice. Let me know if you want others added.

      Just tried to use sh_pm in console:

      sh_pm aero test
      "You do not have access to the sh_pm command"

      Was not listed as on option on the admin menu either. Was the only one on server and guardian (with full A) at time. Did not set after map change either.

        Turns out editing the permission on my DEV server isn't good enough. I actually have to copy the modified file up the production servers to have it take effect. (facepalm)

          Message looks good, although, some suggestions for tweaks down the road:

          1) Time between message should be increased. If possible, more often for strangers. 5 min for strangers, 10 min? for primer signers, some other interval for SMs.

          2) Whenever sh_kick, sh_gb, or sh_tempban is used by an authorized player (or other punitive command), it will show the info message:

          'Billy Bob has been kicked from the server for disrespect' (whatever the current message is, I think that's the right wording)
          'Hit M > Info > TGNS Primer to view our server rules.
          3) Another info message to add (at some interval, maybe at round ends or pre-game):

          New to the server? Come say hello in our forums! Hit M > Info > TGNS Forums
