So long as we get a full server I'm happy at the end of the day.

There is a script that kicks a player who does a pre-determined number of TKs. We could use something like this on our server maybe?

Yea, it works well on servers that tie it in to the forgiveness, so the counter is only incremented if they're not forgiven. A temp ban is way more effective than a kick, even if it's only 10 minutes

Much prefer FF On, always fun to use one enemy as a human shield against another

Possibly for the shorthand, but the player just rejoins and spoils play again and again unless there is a temp ban in the script..

Me and Mr Strongbow (dunno why he calles himself that cos he only drinks shandys) used to admin a GG server a lot of years back and we used to have FF on.. He will confirm that it causes a lot more hastle than needed.. the admin needs are rediculous.. people calling u on to the server all the time.. Just turn the FF off and every problem is solved.. No scripts, no forgive/slay, no admins needed and the list goes on.. Its totally benificial to both the server and the game..

And for u peeps that say only the newb servers have it off ur wrong... me, strongbow and the whole gang used to go to other GG servers when ours was dead and actually sometimes we had more fun when FF was off on servers as we could just spray and pray...

oh and it makes it harder for CA to win ha ha

Thats my 5p's worth :)

Yes I was thinking about the temp ban,like 10 minutes. I think FF off would br great a great loss exactly because of what you have described Willy (spray and pray), although I agree one single troll can spoil evryone's fun and potentially empty the server.

Simple solution set it up as the other servers, so you have to set your preference in your "settings" so with low number it would probably be on, and with higher numbers it would be turned off which seems to be what's wanted from the votes I've run.

I've only seen one case of a TK'er getting a warning\kick\ban currently

All the admin's have the ability to turn FF on and FF at will, and I have expressly told them to turn it off quickly to defuse any situations if needed.

I've tried to turn it off manually yesterday but it didn't work even though everyone's heard the sound "FF is now off". Maybe the GG script overrides our command? There were at least 2 troublemakers yesterday, CA will probably remember. Reluctantly I will have to agree with dread, set it up as the other servers and leave it to the players to choose what they want.

A full server with regs makes FF less of a problem, as there'll be more admins on the server throughout the busy times (I assume). It's just getting to that stage...

Ok, FF is now back on...

Observations from the past week, playing style changes quite considerably, it's faster paced and more "Gun-ho"

FF certainly adds an element of caution to some shots and situations..

It's very much swings and roundabouts, some players prefer it on some off..

I think I will leave it on this week then, maybe move to the standard server setting were the player sets there own perf' I will have some posters made up to explain this to the players.
