I play on this server quite a bit during the day when there is a noticeable lack of admins over the last couple months. No worries, for the most part it tends to attract a pretty decent crowd so there are very rarely any serious admin issues. One thing has really been hampering gameplay lately, though, and that is players that get on, play a couple rounds and then promptly go afk for 60+ rounds. Not only does it unbalance the teams, but it makes the rounds take much longer than necessary because if the CT team doesn't win, then the T's have to search out the afks before the round can end.

One player in particular does this just about every time I get on "yadoT_elimS". He is a regular and I am sure he is a swell guy, but he is inconsiderate as hell when it comes to going afk for hours on end. Anyways, is there anyway that the server could have an auto afk kick and/or that we could deal with this particular player? I don't have a demo, but I am sure that you can view his KDR and see how low it is to corroborate my story. Thanks for the great server to play on.

i understand the beef with afks but a auto kick would be more trouble than it would be worth cause if you have to deal with something like a child or a pet issue while playing and you came back like 4 seconds later to find out you where auto kicked, i myself would never play on a server with that on it it just seems bad news to me

I can maybe string up an autokick script that if you go afk longer than 5-10 rounds it will move you to spectator, then kick or something.

thanks for your feedback.

Same guy again. yadoT_elimS has been AFK for two hours according to a couple other people in server. Has a KDR of 0-20. I understand not wanting to get kicked if you are away for a minute, but if you are gonna be gone for 5+ minutes, just log off the server. I have never had to wait more than 2-3 min to get into this server, even in peak times.

Yeah i've seen a fews ppl in the night time who play a few rounds and go afk for hours, someone in office last night was like 2-60 just crazy, auto kick after 5 or 10 rounds isn't a bad idea at all

I have noticed this problem myself and agree with SoulWind there is usually an admin on vent at one time or another through out the day. If we can get into the server we will solve the problem. Tho there is times we can not join the server to solve the problem because of these people. The script is not a bad idea, I agree that should be set to move to spec after 5 to 10 rounds then kicked after a certain amount of time. Our Office server fills up fast and its unfair to players who actually want to play to have to deal with the afk taking up spaces.

I've seen Snowman... go afk on more than a few occasions. I actually saw him the day that Urban was talking about, at one point he was 1-125. I'll be sure to grab his steamID next time I see him on.
