    Server Admins: Consider auto-kicking AFKers and idle players in ONS

    It's annoying when half of your team is AFK or idling for more than 5 minutes. Why not just kick them out of the server and free up a spot for someone who actually wants to play and will contribute to the team? I know it's an option in the server configuration. It sucks when we get owned by the other team in less than 10 minutes just because half of our team is not at the computer.

    AFAIK Idle-Kick is on by default - and I never turned it off

            20s

            I set the idle kick to 20 secs. The suggested range in WebAdmin is 0-32 secs I think. However it is very buggy. I think that if you have the settings window open in the game that the kick idlers won't work. I activelly have my server admined so I or someone else often kick people that are afk.

              BTW:
              Does it only work while it says "Press fire to respawn" or does it also work when just standing still inside the game?

              'Cause I have ForceRespawn on, on my server....

                  Yeah, but...

                  Maybe a five minute idle kicker. Under a minute is just ridiculous. After all people have to get up and go to the bathroom once in a while

                    Bathroom?

                    To avoid trips to the toilet, try "Depends", the adult diaper of choice.

                          Yep. I'm surprised Cain's Lair (one of the best servers around - it can actually support 32 people without a hitch, and the players are good too) doesn't have the auto-kick feature on. Or maybe it's related to a bug with the auto-kick function like you guys and gals mentioned above.

                            Do people loading a map show up in the game if "Force Spawn" is turned on? Currently my load times aren't the best (I'll allieviate that soon enough) and I don't want to get kicked for "Idling".

                              I switched it on this morning, but I'm not sure it works properly (if at all).
