Why There Is No Kick or Ban Options On Our Servers
Hi , i received this E-mail from a fellow racer that regularly uses our main GTR server , his question is one i get asked a lot so i thought i would add it to the main page . i have removed his name out of courtesy , if he wants me to add it then send me an E-mail and i will gladly do so .
" Hallo racers,
I would like to ask you why on your servers there is no possibility to vote to put away the drivers that apparantly ruin a game. I know that option to vote to kick or ban may become unfair in some cases to someone. But you have very frequent sites now and unfortunately some racers are quite rude.
With best regards!
My reply as follows :
" Hi xxxxxx ,
The reason is answered in your own statement - i quote " I
know that option to vote to kick or ban may become unfair in some cases to
someone " ... that is why we don't have it enabled , because in most cases
accidents are just that they are not done with malice or intent , they just lack
race experience on a big grid ... now if we were like some other
server operators who kick or ban at the drop of a WTF! or OMG! then the racers
with little experience would never get anywhere , there are many regular users
now that can do within 1.5 seconds of the WR , whereas 6 weeks ago they were 10
seconds off from it ... in time there will be more and as there race skill
increases the racing will get better . our server is very popular because we are
tolerant and we understand these things , on the other hand if someone is there
obviously causing chaos then our website has all he relevant information on the
forum with how to report this to us if an Admin is not present on the server . i
will just add that we have enabled no midrace re-join , so now this has stopped
a lot of racers joining the server and entering the track after the race has
begun ... which in our opinion is unfair to the racers who have started from the
grid , this we find has stopped a lot of unnecessary accidents . with regards to
your statement about some racers being rude , unfortunately i can't do much
about that ... but racers that are swearing and verbally abusing other racers
are generally removed from the server if seen by an Admin .
