Reserved Slots

    What happened if a server (let's say ZE) currently has 63 donors playing in it and then 12 admins/donors wanted to join the server?
    who gets the higher priority in the reserved slots? (aside from the obvious roots)

    It happened once, 13.7 billion years ago.

    Nothing would happen, they'd have to wait.

    I don't think there is a priority system. I think for each don/admin that joins a player get kicked.

    EDIT :> You mean not using console?

    ok, clarification:
    1. what's the limit on the reserved slots available?
    2. if there are limits, how will the system prioritize or handle number of donators/admins above the limits?
    3. can you divide by 0?

    Why 12? Arbitrary? At any rate if the server is full of donators & admins only, then no one would be able to join. There is no priority. The only time players with reserved access can join is if there is a reserve slot free, but if all slots are already taken by players with access, they're not going to be kicked to make room for other players with access.

    As far as priority goes for kicking NON-donators/admins who don't have reserved access, when a donator/admin joins it finds whatever player has the highest latency and kicks them - spectators are selected first.

    What would happen if 64 admins are spectating and non can join?

      That's a pretty big 'What if'. As in it wont happen.

        This. More than that - Why would there be 64 admins on? And in spectate? That's a ridiculous scenario but to answer the question, no, if any more wanted to join they wouldn't be able to and really with 64 admins on there'd be no reason to anyway.

          Then non-admins would have to wait until someone decides to leave. Granted, I don't expect to ever see that many admins on at a time in one server, let alone being dicks and sitting in spectate. We encourage players to let us know if something ridiculous is happening [including a hypothetical question such as this] so LSA+root can deal with it quick and with little to no further interruptions.

          Heard something about a ''Drinkything'' going on when that happened ...

          Drinkything didn't come close to populating and locking out an entire server. As cool as that sounds to me, I don't think my event would ever become that much of a problem in our servers, and if they did, you can rest easy know I'm doing my hardest moderating it, keeping people in line.
