When problematic players troll other players @shmack, rather than letting it fester is there a chance we could get a vote-mute that requires like 50% - 66% of votes.
I'm speaking from experience, today would easily have been the best example I can provide.

2:30pm - 3:30pm is the time frame at which a annoying community member is indicating the usefulness of a vote-mute option.

Presumably a quaker using the name "player" connected to the server whose intent is to annoy/troll/aggrivate other players should be promptly either ousted on who they are (I already know who the person was) or switfly taught how to stfu.

I'm a advocate of good gaming in Q1, and today was clearly anything but. I shouldn't have even said anything to the person, as it accomplished nothing except providing an example of the warrants to a vote-mute option.

I find that anytime the community is involved in server management (via in-game commands), it never works as desired. What usually happens is the feature gets abused and does more harm than good.

While I strongly believe muting should be handled by the Quake client itself, my server side solution was to implement a mute list that works much like a ban list except the player gets to decide whether or not he/she wants to filter out the muted clients. You toggle this feature by using the ignore-mute-client command.

To get an IP address on the mute list, take a screenshot of the offensive chat and post it via PM to me. Including the date would be helpful as well.
