    Players Votes (1.5.0)

    say votekick, voteban, votemap & votemute for use by players.

    Changes in 1.5.0: (new CVARs, Polish translation)
    • Added BETA-test team-based voting. Kick, Mute, and Ban voting can be restricted to within a team.
    • Added CVAR to control vote menu timeout.
    • Added updated Polish translations (thanks FrozenHaxor!)
    • Allow non-admins to use "!votemap" , "!votemute", etc chat triggers. Admins cannot use them because then it interferes with the identical stock SM triggers.
    • Fixed bug / exploit causing wrong names to be shown in voteban menu.

    ANNOUNCEMENT:
    The Players Votes plugin is now essentially in maintenance mode. I will continue to fix bugs and add some features, but I will not be adding "major" new features (such as cvar votes, session-based votes, essentially anything requiring substantial re-design), because Players Votes has since been surpassed in that area by Chundo's very flexible Custom Votes. I encourage admins that would like new major features to check out Custom Votes.
    HOWEVER:
    Input/feedback is more than welcome. I'll definitely investigate reasonable suggestions.

    Features:
    Voteban resiliance: Tired of griefers and hackers evading voteban by disconnecting and reconnecting while voting is underway? Players Votes now makes it hard for those scoundrels to get away with it.

    SourceBans notification: If Players Votes is running alongside SourceBans, it will notify and let SB handle the banning.

    Voteban reasons: Optionally make players specify a reason for votebanning someone. The most-selected reason is then logged when the ban takes effect.

    Admin menu integration: It allows admins to cancel any existing votes for all or any particular type of vote. It allows admins to disable/re-enable all or any particular type of vote. The menu name for adminmenu_sorting.txt and admin overrides is "pv_menu"

    Immunity: Admins can be excluded from votekick, ban, and mute by configurable immunity levels or group membership:
    sm_playersvotes_immunity:
    Admins with equal or higher immunity level will not be affected by votekick and voteban. 0 to immunize all admins. -1 to disable numeric immunity levels.

    sm_playersvotes_immunegroups:
    Semicolon-delimited list of admin groups. Any members of these groups are immune. Any admin that is NOT a member of these groups will have their numeric immunity level checked against the _immunity cvar.

    Basic config 1: use the following to immunize based only on numeric immunity levels:

    sm_playersvotes_immunity "50.0" (or whatever number you like)
    sm_playersvotes_immunegroups ""


    Basic config 2: use the following to immunize based only on group membership: (note only Full Admins and Clan Members are immune in this example. Donors or any other "admins" would NOT be immune)

    sm_playersvotes_immunity "-1.0"
    sm_playersvotes_immunegroups "Full Admins; Clan Members"

    Configurable votemap list: votemap uses the map cycle by default. Server admins may optionally specify a different maplist by adding a playersvotes section to maplists.cfg:

    Code:
     /* For playersvotes plugin */
        "playersvotes"
        {
            "file"            "maplist.txt"
        }
    Map extension votes: If map extensions are enabled, when players do a votemap, the first item in the vote menu lets them extend the current map's timelimit.

    Team-restricted voting: (BETA FEATURE) When enabled, this restricts voting to within teams, and ratios are affected. A votekick ratio of 0.5 will mean "half of all players within the team" as opposed to "half of players in the whole server."
    Please note this can cause undesired side-effects. If this is enabled, someone is hacking, and their team doesn't do anything about it, then the other team is helpless to kick/ban them. Use at your own risk.
    Known Issues:
    - votekick, ban, and mute menus may not appear if there's only one player on server, or if all players are immune.

    Changelog:

    - Added map extension votes and cvars sm_votemap_extend and sm_votemap_max_extends.
    - Prevent immune admins from even showing up in votekick and voteban menus

    This is actually real nice, its too bad the regular basevotes doesn't have a "minimum number of votes required" like this plugin. Is there a way/cvar to make this plugin so that only admins can start a vote?

    I don't get your question dann, the whole point of this plugin is so that players can start votes. Admins can start votes from the admin menu.

    yeah they can start them from the menu, but some admins are always going to be a little "slow" and not realize that votemap shouldn't be used when the servers are starting up in the morning with only 5-10 people. That's why the "minimum votes required" would be a nice addition to basevotes or an admin option added to this plugin.

    DJ Tsunami said it all. Even if playersvotes had an admin-only option, that wouldn't prevent admins from using basevotes anyway.

    I'm curious why you think votemap shouldn't be used with only 5-10 players on a server, though. That's a new one to me.

    you can disable basevotes.

    if you have 5 or 10 players on lets say goldrush or dustbowl to get your server going and there is a votemap to lets say cp_well or cp_badlands (two of the most unpopular maps) and it wins, you are going to lose at least a couple of players on map change.

    Then the others are going to start playing the new map, after a few minutes of no new players joining since most players don't actively seek out and join servers playing well, badlands or granary(also nearly empty ones). They decide, hey this isn't any fun with 3 players and they disconnect for a new server.

    This is why I figured you added this feature "sm_votemap_minimum - minimum votes required for successful votemap, -1 for disable votemap" whats the purpose of this feature if you already have "sm_votemap_ratio"?

    mani had admin votes but you had an option to set minimum required votes for the voting to be successful.

    Sounds like the solution is to not have crappy maps in the map list.

    Okay, I see the problem and how minimums mitigate it, but again, this plugin is for Players' Votes. Fundamentally, it's not meant to be a replacement for basevotes. What you really want is an updated basevotes w/ minimums. Still, I'll keep it in the back of my mind, just in case.

    Gonna try to address some unanswered questions from the old thread:

    I am useless at coding although i do java at uni.

    if you could - would appreciate it
    Set sm_votemap_minimum to -1. It will disable only votemap.

    Cheers,
    Turns out that there is a bug where the menu won't appear if you're the only person on the server. Otherwise, if you type votekick or voteban, and you don't get a menu, there might be a conflict with some other plugin. (maybe something else handles the votekick/ban and doesn't let playersvotes process it)
