Summary0000004: Make ban descriptions a little "nicer".
DescriptionI remember this discussion on Doomworld: [^]

Someone was unfairly caught in a range ban and they felt alienated by the ban messages. I think that there are a few things here that could be done better:

1. For local bans, when the user caught in an IP range connects to the server, add a hard-coded message after the ban message that says something to the effect of:

"Your IP (<ip address>) has been banned from this server. If you feel this is in error, please contact <admin email address>."

2. For master bans, use this message:

"Your IP (<ip address>) has been banned from Skulltag. If you feel this is in error, please contact <url to contact form or email address>."

3. For forum bans, remove profanity from the existing bans, and add a link to a contact form or email address, similar to 2.

Just a small thing or two that might go a little way in improving our image.
Additional InformationBy the way, you might want to not give people control over the "priority" of bugs. :)

"By the way, you might want to not give people control over the "priority" of bugs. :)"

I believe you can only set it initially. Once you report we're free to make corrections here. I think for now we should just wait to see if this will be abused.

I was told that administration issues should be kept on the forums, so I'm closing this issue.

I am reopening this for points 1 and 2 - this isn't COMPLETELY apparant in the original suggestion and they were undermined by point 3 which made this appear to be an admin issue. Nevertheless, point 1 and 2 are meant as points for the Skulltag binary itself, rather than admin practices. This may need further feedback before consideration, however.

I was gonna make a suggestion like this... But only to the VoteKick Reasons...

Should make it more like "You have been VoteKicked, and Temp-banned for 5 mins."

The current message seems a bit harsh, and I remember we had a discussion about this, but was never put in. Just want to make it more user friendly for everyone..

Ok... I'm gonna ask it.. How does this work exactly?? Does it just provide the host email to the user?

It provides whatever sv_hostemail is set to.
