Let's improve communication, which could be very useful for older games like Q3, so more players can play at the same time.

If you don't have it already, register new Twitter account @ https://twitter.com/ and then go to https://twitter.com/vogonhq and Follow us. Registration is really simple, they only need email and password, much simpler than Facebook and other sites. Accounts can be renamed, including username/url and even deleted.

Lets definately have better communication. It seems to be a strain to find administrators on line during game play. Sporting an event and not showing up for it just doesn't seem right to me. Specially when everyday hackers rule game play 1 out of 3 games played on Ares tdm cod4. At one time, I was once a on line daily administrator for Ares TDM , and I noticed that over a long period of time, warning hackers that I'd ban them if they didn't stop aimboting was about as usefull as tits on a bull! Not one person quit when I warned them about 1,000 times. Permanant bans need to be advertised, and executed for all aimbots. Administrating this site with a fly swatter did nothing but agrivate the morons who facebook the knowledge to do it again. Permanant bans need to be put in place. I've been banned PERMANANT by a server who is as popular as this one, by some administrator on the 1.7 tdm server, when he thought I was hacking, and some GD Imposter took my name and ruined me. So I have a bone to pick with hackers, and with the way this server executes self center, morons, who cheat 44 people every other game. Now I will donate $40.00/mth right now if you give me an answer as to why you took my admin. right away a year or so ago, you make me admin again for Ares hc tdm cod4, and give me the power to permanantly ban ALL aimbots.

Respectfully yours, :popcorn:

Warning cheaters is actually a bad idea for multiple reasons, they will never admit they do anything wrong, and only a few may actually disconnect, turn aimbot off and then reconnect to play legit. Plus some people think aimbots are OK to use if they see friends or clan members using them. Another problem with warnings is you may lose a lot of time arguing over it, when simple ban can resolve things much faster -- and you don't need to convince anyone about anything.

Also check PM for the exact answer why some people lost admin at that time.


Since you bumped up this old thread -- vogonhq twitter was reserved mostly for Q3, but it is not being used much at all. Best is to post here or use PM.
