Automated ban added

A place where the developers will submit any work done to the somadev server or client.

Automated ban added

Postby iSylver » Thu Jun 07, 2012 7:35 am

Basically I no longer have to check the logs for those using third party clients,

A cron job should now run every night to ban those who had used that client that day.

First strike = 7 Days.

Second = 14.

I've noticed quite a lot of people complaining about apparent 'unrightful' bans. Even though I don't trust them for a minute to have not cheated or unknowingly not cheated, is there a way to appeal this automated action?

Also for those who did get banned automaticly but don't know why, do the following to prevent this in the future:
- Make sure you are the ONLY one who has access to your account. Use an unused and unique password and change it regularly
- DO NOT accept clients from other people. IF you plan to play another server, make a fresh install or COPY your Somadev client in a new folder. Install the new server there. Make sure you get a client from an 'official' source, like Somadev forums (Finito's post) or the Soma Wiki.

Great idea, only problem I find is that people will eventually find a way around it but that is like all things.

A suggestion to help improve this would be if it can send out what you have been banned for in a pm or posted on forum for all to see automatically. I.E. (name) were banned for using a third party client, as this is their first offence the ban is for 7 days.

Maybe the character-message system on the website could be used, since none of the accounts are linked to the forums.

If it bans you, you cannot access the game or website features.
