TOPIC: [Suggestion] Auto Kick From Server

[Suggestion] Auto Kick From Server 3 months 6 days ago #897434

Server Name: TTT/All Servers

Suggestion Title: Auto kick from server on being idle for a set time

How would it benefit the server: Severely cut down on time farming, a massive problem at the moment on the TTT server

Potential Issues/Exploits: N/A

Additional notes: So there is an auto spectate for AFK players after a certain amount of time, but what I think would improve all the servers, not solely TTT, would be an auto kick that follows after that, obviously the kick would be after a longer set of time because everyone has to go do something now and then, but I'm talking about the hours and hours of time farming that is going on. The time could be around 15-20 minutes of being AFK. The reason I am suggesting this is because there is a massive problem at the moment with time farming, especially for TTT, I am unsure about the other servers, staff coming on the server for long periods of time doing absolutely nothing other than being AFK, purely so that it looks like they are doing their job when they aren't, and this isn't the low ranking staff like the admins and mods, it's the highers up, not all though, many are fine such as Dodo, Chien, Miia and Aek. Myself and other staff members have footage of staff just sitting in the spectators section for hours on end just to improve their gametrackers, this would cut down on any of that. The people that use time farming to their advantage will most likely hate me if this does get added, however it is a big problem currently and it needs to be brought to attention, so here I am making this post. If you feel you have a better way that this could be dealt with then just feel free to post below

Thank you

No need to kick them, being moved to spectator mode is good enough. I would however suggest making it so it moves them on 120 seconds instead of 180 seconds

But why not kick huh? The whole point of this is to get rid of time farming, spectator does not do that

If they are in spectator, does it count towards their gametracker? Cause if so, its an issue.

Its not hard to tell if someone has been timefarming just look at their score compared to the amount of time they have played, while not 100% proof it if it is really bad it is a good indication that they have just been sat in spectator mode. Even if they are just in spec mode that still does not mean they are timefarming, they could just be there due to a high amount of reports or still be handling situations just not playing the game.

If this is the case ( not sure if this is possible) you could have something like this to avoid it from happening

No it wouldn’t, this is for staff that go AFK for long periods of time. If a user is AFK for half an hour on the server and not actually playing it then they are just not bothered about playing on the ZARP, no one has to be AFK for that long, so no it wouldn’t lose player count. And if they did get kicked for inactivity they can easily just reconnect and not go AFK again

Yup, this is a solid method, an example would be Xnator time farming on the server last night and it can be easily proved by his whopping 220 minutes yet 0 score, no need to kick players imo.
