VoteKickPlayer Doesn't Work

Alpha WingAlpha Wing Join Date: 2013-01-05 Member: 177673Members Posts: 13
Hi everyone,

First off let me say that if another thread or anything else was made about this topic, that I couldn't find it and I'm sorry. This is probably a simple fix but I can't figure it out. I run a server and I just can't get the VoteKickPlayer voting option to work in game. If someone tries to use it, it says something like "This feature has been disabled by the Admin." However, I have this feature (and all the other voting options) enabled in the serverconfig.json file. Does anyone have any insight on this? My serverconfig.json file is below:

{
"tags":["ns2"],
"settings":{
"rookie_friendly":false,
"force_even_teams_on_join":true,
"jit_maxmcode":40000,
"use_own_consistency_config":false,
"end_round_on_team_unbalance_check_after_time":180,
"auto_kick_afk_capacity":20,
"mod_backup_servers":[],
"voting":{
"voterandomizerr":true,
"votechangemap":true,
"votingforceeventeams":true,
"voteresetgame":true,
"votekickplayer":true
},
"pregamealltalk":true,
"mod_backup_before_steam":false,
"alltalk":false,
"jit_maxtrace":24000,
"end_round_on_team_unbalance":0.3,
"auto_team_balance":{
"enabled_after_seconds":60,
"enabled_on_unbalance_amount":999999
},
"end_round_on_team_unbalance_after_warning_time":30,
"hiveranking":true,
"auto_kick_afk_time":15
}
}

    ZeroEarTh,

    I'm confused about what you are trying to say, this is a voting option for the entire server not the Admin. That way if the Admin is offline and there is some kind of griefer in the server, the majority of people can vote that griever out and effectively deal with the situation. Not many other things are as good at clearing out a server than a good griefer. I want to be able to give the players in my server that power.

    This would probably do better off in the server discussion forum.
    Moved.

    Wait, this is a mod? Isn't votekickplayer the variable the game uses for.. wait for it.. votekicks? O.o

    You will have to excuse me for not knowing about some forum stuff, since you moved this thread I hope I don't need to be replying to you anywhere else? I'm not sure if I'm supposed to re-find this thread somewhere else or not, sorry for being a noob about that.

    As for the vote kick option, I don't think it's a 'mod,' I thought it was a part of the default voting options that comes with a standard dedicated server? My question is that even though I have the "votekickplayer: true" in the serverconfig.json, it still doesn't allow it in game (it says it's disabled). So why isn't it working when all the other voting mechanics work?

    Ok short question do you run any server mods? (via the mapcycle.json) And yes the voting is a vanilla feature.

    Reporting similiar issue: Some players reporting they can not start votekick or forceeventeams (other votes disabled). However i think my problem is related to Shine or custom badges mod, since i only got this informations from some people with custom badges.

    Here is the code from the badges group. @GhoulofGSG9‌ can you confirm if this is still working?

    "Member": {
    "IsBlacklist": false,
    "Immunity": -1,
    "Badge": "disabled",
    "Commands": []
    }

    Quoting this again to remind people what a bad development and community interaction policy looks like. Lets go down the list. See if you can find exactly where each point is hit.
    -Contradicts community feedback by vaguely insisting a bad change has been "positive"
    -Decrees that the change is permanent despite overwhelming community outcry in the negative
    -Misrepresent the arguments people are using in order to get an easy position to defend your change from.
    -Fail to make any real arguments in favor of your position other than the aforementioned "its positive"
    -Claim to understand complaints immediately after failing to properly interpret and respond to a quote in the same post.
    -Claim that holes left by the newly missing experiences are being filled by unrelated and half baked mechanics.
    -Ignoring community feedback, then retroactively pretending that changes made personally were based on community feedback.

    Well one feature of shine is that ppl can't kick ppl with a higher immunity level, so you can't start a vote on someone with a higher level. As the default level is 0, those users of the group "Member" could indeed have a issue to kick players who belong to no group.

    Shine is not interfering with any other vote beside votekick!

    Gentlemen,

    First off, thanks for all the responses. I want to report that my vanilla vote kicking option now works; here's how I did it:

    I went into the UserConfig.json file and put in the following:
    },
    "Member": {
    "IsBlacklist": false,
    "Immunity": -1,
    "Badge": "disabled",
    "Commands": []
    }

    Secondly, I went into the BaseConfig.json for Shine and put this:
    "EqualsCanTarget":true,

    When I went to test the vanilla vote kick option on another admin of the same immunity, it worked. So I have to assume (but it hasn't been done yet) that any other player can now do it too.

    Everyone reading this thread should read this too just for additional info:

    Person8880 said:

    The kick vote stuff is kind of an issue with the immunity system not working for every scenario. If you have EqualsCanTarget to false, then the players in the badge groups won't actually be able to target each other. Also, if you have a default group which likely has a > 0 immunity, they won't be able to target guests either.

    I'm going to add a simple flag for groups, "CanAlwaysTarget": true. If you set that on a group, then the group can always be targeted and has no immunity value so it should be better suited to badge groups.
