As it seems admins can be callvote kick/banned from there own servers... is´nt there a way to prevent that in the code?

lol - why :) no clue if it would be possible.

1. behave so it wont happen
2. come back (you are admin and can remove yourself from any banlist with remote cp f.e.)
3. /admin cancel
4. behave so it wont happen

behave so it wont happen... right...

Some kids have made this for fun i have seen. Joining servers with few ppl online and callvote kick/ban and quick exit again... nothing much to really cange in behavior to change this. They are just missusing the system :)

tnx for your answer :)

It's possible for sure. Feature is implemented in other controllers

It doesn't help telling an admin to behave so it doesn't happen, cause people who try to ban admins most often don't care about who or why they ban.

If you want to continue using Mistral's version you can disable the Ban-setting in the dedicated_cfg.txt or setting it really high, examples:
<callvote_ratio>0.6</callvote_ratio> <!-- default ratio. value in [0..1], or -1 to forbid. -->
<callvote_ratios>
<voteratio command="Ban" ratio="0.90"/>
<!-- commands can be "Ban", "Kick", "ChallengeRestart", "NextChallenge", ... -->
</callvote_ratios>
or to disable completely
<voteratio command="Ban" ratio="-1"/>

There is still the /admin cancel and the admin panel to kick/ban them.

Some things people will only try once and then you will never see them again ;)

Hm... i guess you are both right. This does´nt hapen often but theese ppl come back if they not suffer a kick or a warning. They are choosing there victims randomly i dont mind if they try to kick me or another admin out as we can get back in if we miss the /admin cancel command... (yes we do actually race when we are online and occationally miss a vote now and then :D)

Anyways... it´s not a big problem... tnx
