Suggestion Clientside Muting/Gagging

    There are times when no admins are on/afk or not doing what they're intended to do, and there are micspammers on. The mute with "Player List" only works when it wants to, and another gaming community has a plugin where you type who you want to mute and you can no longer hear that person. This is clientsided and doesn't affect any players, and I see no reason why this is a bad thing. Gagging would also be useful when people spam the chat with useless stuff.

      Player List works fine for me so I don't really know what the deal is. :confused:

        Deal is that it doesn't always work.

          I don't think I've ever had a problem with using the player list to mute others is how I should have said it.

            Gagging was only an optional idea, I just want a player mute.

            If it's anything like last night where 5-6 people were talking/yelling over eachother on mic, it might be hard to run a votemute, especially with how many people connect and how many people would just troll and vote no. The playerlist mute phenomena is so weird, as I've never personally had this issue though tons of people have it. I'd totally support a clientside mute plugin. Like Detonator said, I doubt it'd be too complicated to just check for admin flags.

              We've had discussions about votemute and votekick. Even though I use to support the idea... turns out to be not a very good idea... I don't think we'll be taking this route.

              If they spam their mic, when you are trying to mute them, it won't work (in 90% of the case).
