    Someone in the server asked how much time left and I spammed it FOUR (4) times and got automatically banned. I am assuming its forever because there was no time or anything. Also doesn't show up in the bans list.. So.. it would be freakin awesome of someone unbanned me!

    EDIT: Happened yesterday.

      I was just doing it as a joke... I promise i was not trying to get banned for spamming timeleft FOUR times. Thought I would just run in to a spam limit instead of an immediate ban. (just like how u can only spam !scream twice then u have to wait for a bit.)

          Dude, it's been 20 minutes... Give it sometime and you might have a chance to be unbanned. Bumping the thread only makes us less willing to help at all.

            Posting your steam ID and IP address would be a good idea

              The server does not ban you at random. You used the same command multiple times in rapid succession that is spam. Working as intended this system is.

                So your telling me anyone who uses the same command more than once should be permabanned without warning, or anything. If this is the case I would love to recieve a list of all the ways that I can get permabanned for simple stupid fun so that I can avoid them in the future.


                What is wrong with your admining? How you are still an admin amazes me with the amount of abuse threads and half of our players calling you an abuser more than once time. You take every oportunity to ban/kick/mute/whatever me and others that you dislike.
                You are quite possibly the most hated admin by the public.

                Well I would love to get back to killing some zombies..

                Once or twice is one thing, four times is def spamming. You shouldn't have done that, and keep your unnessicary attacking out of this forum.

                come on 4 times isnt that bad. It is not like I am always doing it. I wasn't interupting anyone conversation. Obviously now I am not going to go spam anything in chat or console.. Why am I even still banned... this really isn't even a big deal. Even the rules say that spam can cause up to 1 day ban.. which would have already expired.

                I fail to see how spamming timeleft can be fun, other than to be annoying to everyone else in the server. Timeleft spamming was used to crash the server in the past so we had to take drastic measures against it. We assume that if you are willing to spam the command you have malicious intentions.

                EDIT: Everyone please refrain from posting unless you are part of the solution, let's not start a flame war.

                Ugh, I'm adding to everyone's warning rating who posted in this thread and Angel had to delete....dont fucking post if you have nothing to contribute.

                Jookbob, have some fucking patience. You are asking to be unbanned, this is no time to be pushy.

                I will unban you here shortly.

                Locked.
