I, too, would like to know the answer to the question above...
Anyway, I'm really posting to ask, WHY DID THE ADMIN GET KICKED?
I promise that: "l4d_vote_kick_immunity "1"" is set.
So, I start up a friends game, we're playing versus and I initiate all talk vote and it passes. So we're playing along and I say "Yes, I did just install a vote manager, and no, you should not be able to kick me. But for the sake of science, let's try. I want my team to vote kick me!" So they proceed to start the vote and it passes and I GET KICKED... Ok, so we've had our laugh (haha) and I reconnect to the ongoing game... STEAMID:1:1
xxxxxxx has been BANNED from this server!
How can an admin get banned from his own server?! So i run "sm_unban STEAMID:..." and am still banned! So now I have to wipe the banned_user.cfg list and restart the server. Ok, now we're back to normal...
But that still doesn't answer the question WTF happened?!
