Guys, I don't know why, but we're having a crazy amount of traffic on the server lately. That's great and all, but it seems like every single time I sign on the server, I have to remove at least one person who simply does not communicate. That's fine. That's my job.
But there's one situation that annoys the CRAP out of me, and I want some help. It involves question mark players.
When I come into a team, and one or more players has been ON THE TEAM for SEVERAL MINUTES before I joined the server, *I* should NOT be the person who DISCOVERS that this person needs to be REMOVED. That person should be GONE before I *arrive*.
Learn about the 'gb' console command. Most of you reading this can USE IT, as all it requires is a forum-registered SteamID and 10000 points (got points to SPARE? SHARE them. 'gb' costs no points to use; you simply must have 10000 points.). It lets you remove any non-registered SteamID when you cite a server rule (he's breaking) when you use the command.
No, you guys aren't admins. No, it's not your job to keep the server "the best pub NS there is." It's not even REQUIRED for temp admins to act. But you GET from this server what you put IN, and I want people RESPONSIBLY using this command as their comfort allows and necessity dictates.
Screen question mark players. Ask them if they're on board, with mic or keyboard (theirs). Give them a chance or two respond. If they don't, remove them. It's not like you're banning them. They might never come back, or they might come back and start communicating. Treat them with respect, but REMOVE THEM if they can't make the cut.
Anyway, I'm convinced that the server will be a better place if our regulars aren't afraid to RESPONSIBLY use this command when it's appropriate. There are other commands to help keep the server in good shape, too. Type amx_help in your console, especially if you're a temp admin. You might find something useful.
