Introducing the banning system
After many requests by several Tourney Directors, I introduced the new command ban
which enables them to remove and/or ban a player from a tourney.
The syntax is:
ban <player> <tourneynumber>
This will ban <player> from the specified tourney. Note that if that player has already signed up, he will be kicked out and prevented from reentering, but only if the tourney hasn't been started yet.
If you want to prevent a certain abuser from entering your tourneys without having to ban them anew every single time, you can ban by type, like this:
ban <player> <tourneytype>
So, that for example ban Abuser fridays3
will ban the player called Abuser from entering any fridays3 type tourneys. He will, however, be able to enter other tourneys.
And lastly, for really big abusers, you can ban them globally, thus preventing them to enter any kind of TourneyBot tourney:
ban <player> globally
To see who's banned, use the banned
banned 41 or banned fridays3 or banned globally
Use the unban
command to lift a ban. As always, consult the Command Reference
for details about these 3 commands.Important: please be careful when using these commands. The tourneys you run are your own, of course, so you get to decide who can enter them, but I write this software so that as many people as possible can enjoy it. Needless to say, excessive banning will not help in that regard, so please try to use it with caution, for abusers and droppers. Personal dislike is not a sufficient reason for banning someone, in my opionion. Especially the type and global bans should not be used unless in case of repetitive abuse.
