ASECO/RASP Vote Reminder Plugin Request

Post by blooper » 28 Oct 2007 17:29

I have a request for a plugin that checks if you have voted for the track when you finish, and if you haven't, sends a chat message reminding you to vote. I've seen a plugin like this before, but i'm not sure if it checks if you have voted before and it pops up an annoying window. I'm sure this would be appreciated by many people hosting servers, since racers never seem to remember to vote.

Thanks.

Edit:
To clarify, I am talking about karma votes (/++ /--), not the chat votes (/skip, etc)

Ok, thanks, but I don't like this one because of the annoying window. I just want a chat message to be sent. Thanks for pointing that one out, though, since I forgot what it was called.

The new chat-based voting system in v0.84+ already sents a chat reminder to vote to all players, every round in Rounds mode and (approx.) every 30 seconds in TimeAttack mode. And when some players are eager to get a vote to pass, they'll type in reminders too. And there's also the (optionally global) reminder to read /helpvote every time a player joins. Isn't that enough?
I think in many cases, players don't vote because they're against the voted action going through. :wink: Also, chat-based voting isn't anywhere nearly as common as the built-in CallVotes, so it simply may take a lot of players time to get used to it.

I'm actually talking about karma votes. I guess I didn't make myself clear enough in my request.

This one is only for unspec votes and is intended to be annoying :twisted: you could surely modify it to work with karma votes and not display a popup but i think it would be easier to just write a new one ;-) btw. use aseco 0.8x, it's the ****! (positively) (don't know if it helps with karma btw)
inactive, sorry

A-haaahh :lol: Now I understand. :P
Okay, I think I can build that, if nobody else wants a stab at it. Can't promise when it'll be ready for testing though.

Well of course. :P And nothing extra needs to be stored in the database, as karma votes are already stored themselves. The plugin just would need to check for that vote after every finish, and pester the player. But all optional.

i just use server auto spam to remind people now and then..
my karma mod also makes it a bit easier to vote..
took a bit of doingand tweaking to get a ballanced i wanted and because i dont know anythign about php.. but when people say "oo this is my fav track" or this "track is so kewl" "i love this one" or "awesome map" and about 50 other terms it votes ++ for people,
If they say cr4p map, not kewl track, this one is gay it votes -- for people. and about 40 other terms(less terms on the neg cowma side as people are more likely to complain than praise)
I find people are far more likely to just comment about a map then vote on it.


rarely my karma catches unintended votes.. like someone talking about a previous map.. but often these people will notice the vote and revote to fix the unintended one.

Okay, instead of a separate plugin, I simply integrated this into the existing plugin.rasp_karma.php file, as it's really just two extra functions that respond to finish and end-race events. There's one new configuration setting in rasp.settings.php:
  • $remind_karma = 0;
    Set to 2 if you want to send a reminder upon every finish to players that have not yet karma voted for the current track; set to 1 if you want to send a reminder at the end of a track to players that have not yet karma voted for that track; if 0, no reminders are sent. After voting, players are no longer sent a reminder, and spectators are never sent one.
Does that meet your needs? This will be in the next release (v0.86).

Awesome. :D Can you add a line to config.xml or something so the message is easily changeable? I have another quick idea. Can you make an admin command to pass a current vote? I find sometimes that there is 1 vote remaining and no one will do the last /y... :P

Also, when is v0.86 coming out?

Yes, the message is in rasp.xml along with the other karma-related messages. That's how I found a bug in the XML parser, which changed '+' characters into spaces.

Oh yes, that would be handy. While an admin can already overrule any vote with specific commands (e.g. /admin endround), a general /admin pass command for TMX /add and chat-based votes is convenient too. That's in v0.86 now.

Not sure yet, but I think it's time to use my favorite word "imminent" again. :lol:
