    Okay, ever since i've got my admin usage
    there's been a lot of people disrespecting a lot of admins including me
    This is starting to piss me off.. sorry for the language but i cant help

    people's been telling me to do such and such and i've been kicking a lot of them for a major disrespectful comments towards me..

    is it wrong for me to kick players for disrespecting me?

    because they keep threatening to that they will report me for admin abuse...

    is it considered admin abuse??

    Here is your answer directly from PF's Golden Rules.

    11. Do not disrespect or interfere with admins doing their jobs.
    This includes arguing with admins regarding their decision on things.
    Punishment: Warn -> Mute/Gag -> Temporary Ban(1hour to 1day length)
    Note: If you disagree with a certain admin's actions, post about it on our forums and let us know.

    Might wanna review the rules just in case. :smile:

    I'm too lazy to find it but I do remember a a rule stating that their should be no disrespecting of admins or players.

    So we should be a little more uptight about people getting in retarded fights to? Like with other players?

    Usually you would step in If you see things are being blown out of proportion.

    Well there was an issue yesterday with a player named Irony who disrespected admins. I kicked him and I stand by my decision. He should be happy I didn't ban him for the rest of the day for his crappy attitude. If someone is being a jerk on the server, then kick them after you warn them of course. :smile:

    I banned a guy just yesterday for doing it.

    Did a crude imitation of a British accent everytime I spoke,
    I asked him to stop it, he carried on.
    I muted him, he rejoined and continued this impression.
    I kicked him, he rejoined and continued this impression.
    Sweet, delicious Banhammer.

    Usually I dont mind banter, but that guy was being a complete and total dick.

    Players are always going to talk shit, including towards the admins. At the same time, you get those guys that simply like to spread hate and want to piss you off. Some join the game with the goal of angering an admin enough to get a kick or a ban out of it.

    Like Secondary and others said, this falls under rule #11 and you don't have to put up with it! Use your judgement from case to case - I take a lot of flack from players with a smile on my face, but I won't deal with flat out disrespect / trolling.

    Yes, but this doesn't mean you need to kick every player that calls you a name. Make sure you know the difference between disrespect and trash talking, a lot of people don't.

    Quite right. I get told I'm a flaming douche constantly for applying the rules and so does every other admin. I think you just need to ignore it for the most part. Unless it continues for more than... I don't know, a minute? Then they're crossing the line. Then you can slap them silly. I mean kick them silly.

    whats about ignoring them?
    i played now since years on css zm, and learned to ignore the kiddies who spam me in chat
    with bad words ...

    its probably more useful

    but when they start this in mic, i will mute them

    I was thinking the same. You dont need immediately start raging and start kicking people.

    yeah so true,
    if i would not ignore them we have a 24/7 empty server

    just only in special cases kick/ban them, when its pretty hard and personally

    True, some people would try to aggravate admins on the server. Make sure you warn then before kicking (in chat is mandatory, over mic is optional). Actually works good if you do both: in chat and over mic.

    I'm going to make a guide for dealing with trolls on the servers.
    It is one of my favorite activities.
