Mani Admin Tutorial
So you just got adminship? Congrats! But do you know how to use it?
When you first get admin status you need to be able to quickly access them.
Now, in console (you can get to console by pressing ` (if that does not work do this: go to Options -> keyboard -> Advanced -> then check 'enable developer console')) Now type the following:
Code: bind "." "admin"
This code means that whenever you press '.', it will run the command 'admin', which opens the admin panel. You can replace '.' with whatever key you want.
Code: bind "#" "admin
Code: bind "=" "admin"
This is easy. To talk in green, press what button you use to talk (normally y) then do the following:
To use admin private say, to say to one person only, do the following in your chat bar:
To use admin only chat, press the button you use to talk to your team (usualy u) then do the same as if you were talking in green to everyone.
When you press your key bound to open the admin panel (see setting up admin) a box will appear. This is simmilar to the box that appears during a map vote, or using any vote commands (votekick, voteban ect).
You navigate it by using the number buttons (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0).
If you want to kick a player called... lobe, then you do this:
Press your admin button (see setting up admin) or type admin in console Then you will see several options, depending on how many commands you can use (the server administrator can change your permissions and what commands you can use) You would press 1 on your keyboard to go into player management. You would then press 1 to go into kick player. Then, you would do autokick by name, by pressing the corrosponding number on your keyboard.
Then simply find the right player, and press his number! This can be helpful if you cant kick in console because the player has strange letters in his name that you cannot type.
Note: Sometimes (happens with me) when you press an option the panel just disapears. If this happens, jsut start again! Note2: If a mapvote comes on while you are in admin panel, it will close and you will have to do what you are doing again.
Using the console can be a fast way to excecute commands. Firstly, you have to know the syntax and command to do anything. If you want to kick, you would type makick. If you want to ban, you would type maban, and so on.
If you just type in maban, with nothing else, it will tell you the syntax and what you need to type.
For a ban , you have to do maban
The #all command is a powerful one, so be careful. As you may guess, the #all command runs the command on all of the players. So you dont want to type ma_ban #all 0! this would ban everyone for ever!
But it can be a quick way to do somthing. You could give everyone C4, by typing magive #all weaponc4. this gives everyone a c4! Or, ma_beacon #all.
Be reasonable. Warn before taking actions. Spectate people before taking a more perminent course of action (bans over 10 mins).
Offence noticed -> Check to see if accidental I(if tk/ta) -> If accidental see if it happens again, then warn. -> If on purpose, warn. if it happens again, take some action (mute/slay), if it happens again, ban/kick.
Here are a couple of 'passive' commands. These do not effect the gameplay, but give you infomation about a certain player:
Ma_statsme [Target] This gives you the stats of the target, just as if they had typed statsme themselves
Ma_session [target] Take a guess
