Moderation [RACING]

Post by aP|Nelg »

I would like some input and discussion on what the best server moderation for a racing server would be.

I'm my own experience I found that racing servers need less moderation than usual. You can't team-kill or run/camp or ruin the game-play because there is no way to attack players (being AKF is a problem in racing, but that is an easy fix with IDLE_REMOVE_TIME). The only thing that needs moderation is inappropriate language (and maybe spam). In several years of hosting Advanced Racing I think I've only kicked two people, both for abusive language.* So, perhaps the best solution is to allow a wide selection of trusted players the ability to silence others? I can't imagine what else needs to be moderated.


*I generally try to silence players with foul mouths, but occasionally you get the jerk-face that immediately starts spewing racial and ethnic slurs from the second they enter. Those people need a time out.
