Overused Teleport Command for Players

Post by ExtraSauce on 2/8/2012, 6:57 am

I just logged into this morning, and noticed how [the command] has been spread, Matt_582 was having an discussion with Bella and Vampire, i asked why and they told me he tp'd to then 2 times without asking. He said that the use of /ptp is okay, following the /rules. We replied with a big discussion about the Full Rules, still, he continued.



What i see is that [the command] is being ridiculously spread like a virus, and now even Guests now it. We change this now or everyone will start using it without permission.

The thing is, /ptp can only be used between players in your own party. I've used it before-and I'll addmit it- But I didn't know it wasn't allowed, and also I haven't used it without permission from the other player.

I believe that /ptp should be allowed for only high ranks, or it should be granted to long-time players.
I don't see the problem with /ptp if players acctually ask permission to the other player, and it should be asked in /msg form.

If these rules are not regarded, then it should be an automatic temp. ban- maybe 4-5 hours.
If the player keeps dissrigarding it, then it should be a serious offense resulting in a permantent ban.

..So the automatic response to it spreading is to post it on the forums where more people can see it.. Flawless logic.

Well hey now, thanks for bringing this to my attention. I honestly had no idea that players could use that command without having the permission node.

Pretty bad hole in the plugin, if you ask me, but whatever.

Yeah this definitely shouldn't be allowed. Teleportation is something reserved for people who have earned it, either by ranking up over time, or donating to the cause.

I'll see what I can do about restricting it. I don't want to take out the entire Parties plugin, but... we'll see.

New members don't read the forums, only if they're applying for member or something, but topics like these don't bring my attention, so i pretty much believe they won't read this.

I agree with you because it should not be used without permission. It should only be used with permission only. For example you can be swimming in lava (if you have god or something) and they just tp to you and they die and they blame you of murder. Then it gets into a big fight and stuff. So is it like a hole in the plug-in that causes no permssion needed? But post like these make me want to read them so i like looking for things on the furoms like this.

Clarification: is the party tp (player's name) allowed when 2 people are in a party?

This explains so much to me.

Personally I'd want this ability removed and reserved only for those of whom it is intended for, like the Veterans, staff, and donators. If everybody has the ability to teleport (even guests) then I think it KILLS the overall survival nature from our server.

Also, it's a HUGE security concern IMHO. There is so much potential for this to be exploited, if it hasn't been already.

Makes me wonder if our plugins are out of date or if there are others out there that would prevent this from happening (looking at you, NoCheat)

Let me clear some things up for you guys.

You Cannot teleport. Ever.

The only exceptions to this rule are $20.00 Donators, Veterans, Guides, Mods, Admins and Owners. There is no other person that is allowed to tp at any time.

In response to Madscientist. NoCheat does not block the command, and i'm pretty sure it's because of PartyChat or something like that because I have no clue what the plugin's name is, only what it does.

No form of tp'ing will be allowed for ANYONE under Veteran rank. The only exception is $20+ donators of course.

As I see it, or as they sort of spelled it out on the last page, yes.
But I would like to bring up another thing as well on this topic which is People tping (over the rank of donator, vet, ect) That tp without asking. This happens a lot to me and I don't want to name names but this bothers me A LOT.(not talking about staff members btw to clear up possible confusion about that)
