@BlackHoleHost3-admins: kickBan by smurf-accounts

Post by SolaEvoli » 04 Sep 2015, 04:28

I can't play multiplayer anymore, just because 1 smurf.

In the only one BA host, I get kicked every game. All other hosts have no players.

Whilst it's not good to see happen, this forum isn't the right place to complain - see viewtopic.php?f=16&t=28199. Contact the autohost admins, SPADS hosts can configure this not to happen.

Tnk for your message. Would have been better a direct message to us through the IRC, but this problem affects
all hosts actually... we are evaluating solutions.

Actually I'm glad he posted here, so others can also see this issue exist. Potential solutions would be to:

— adjust http://planetspads.free.fr/spads/doc/sp ... ticipation :"This is the minimum percent of voters that must have voted manually for a poll to be taken into account by SPADS". But it's not optimal since it affects other commands that are non-controversial and need to be passed easily.

— write a plugin for just this event (https://springrts.com/wiki/SPADS_plugin_development, the documentation is excellent), for the kickban vote. But there could be other similar exploits.

Maybe one solution would be to have two separate vote commands: one like it is now for simple votes, which can be passed easily, and one with qualified majority voting, that would consider blank votes as no for instance. But no matter how we adjust the rules, there will always be possible loopholes. The best solution would of course be to try to make people behave nicely in the first place.

Edit: or some smurf-detection tools for voting, which ids actually the issue here. Maybe don't let people vote until they have stayed in lobby for 60 seconds for instance?

PMs only work while the player is online and it's difficult to access the messages when spring-lobby crashes directly after you receive them.
Also it was difficult to access the admin list of a host, where I could not join.

It would be nice to have some sort of:
  • !report [optional host-name defaults to current one] player|admin|bug|...
    !links [optional host-name defaults to currently joined one] (shows all links: forum, bugreport, etc)
Which gives you information of where and how you should leave a message.
