|0001869||Zandronum||[All Projects] Suggestion||public||2014-07-03 01:51||2017-04-23 23:47|
|Target Version||3.0||Fixed in Version||3.0|
|Summary||0001869: Cool down time for sv_limitnumvotes|
|Description||Being able to adjust the time need before a vote can be recalled would be a nice middle ground between no limit and the default 10 min limit. With the ability to change the cool down time will help server admins to fine tune their voting systems according to the severity of vote spam in each of their servers.|
I decided to take a shot at this. Current voting times can preserved while scaling down (or up) with sv_limitnumvotes.

|The patch looks fine except that the CVAR name sv_limitnumvotes IMO doesn't make sense anymore. We should rename it to something more appropriate to what it does, e.g. sv_newvoteinterval.|
|Perhaps sv_votecooldown? Names should be intuitive enough to be easily guessed without looking it up imo.|
|I agree and a couple of people I asked also agreed it is intuitive.|
|I'd say sv_votecooldowntime , to give it more meaning.|
Code was committed, needs testing.
|Why are the times doubled? 1 ends up 2 minutes, 4 ends up being 8 minutes?|
|Because of the way the voting is coded. The constant values are basically 5 and 10 for the flood protections. That's why I left the default value at 5 so that people won't notice any difference from the current behavior. Setting a low value like 1 or still has some sort of wait. If you set the cvar to 2, you have to wait 4 minutes to recall that specific vote, but you can call any other type of vote after 2 minutes.|
The svar works EXCEPT that sv_limitnumvotes 0 does not override the time. So if I set sv_votecooldown to > 0 and sv_limitnumvotes 0, I still have to wait. sv_limitcommands 0 still works
That scaling system is not user friendly and I agree with Strikerman that it should just be set to minutes like timelimit and stuff are. However you told me that requires work and effort so so be it I guess.

sv_limitnumvotes is renamed to sv_votecooldown, so Zan is reading your ini when you are trying to use the former.
|thanks zdoom for pretending that fake svars in my ini are real. no way to even tell. everything worked then on this ticket|
This issue is already marked as resolved.
If you feel that is not the case, please reopen it and explain why.
