Re: Turn off guest accounts, etc

It's 2020, having an account "somewhere" is hardly a hurdle and has been required for basically all of Myth's lifetime anyways other than the past few years. Guests were a conceit to a period where GoS had its own awkward integration with forum accounts (and all the security issues that entails) rat...

Couple temp bans earned for the most ridiculous cases there. Can easily promote to full bans if the behavior continues.

Re: Turn off guest accounts, etc

IP bans are not a particularly reliable solution unfortunately. If this a real issue we need some actual accountability in the form of an account somewhere. Even then they can create new ones, but at least there are mechanisms in place on the Steam side to limit that abuse too much. There's not a go...

Re: Turn off guest accounts, etc

The lobby chat restriction also would not prevent guests from creating games with inappropriate titles or similar either.

I think I'm still leaning towards disabling guest accounts as the burden to log in with Steam is not really unreasonable these days.

Re: Turn off guest accounts, etc

Disabling lobby chat entirely for guest accounts is an option. I wouldn't want to do some rate-based thing as you could still work around that by logging in again or whatever, and the sort of objectionable content we're talking about could be a single message. Guests could still of course join games...

Yep from what I've seen it's time to shut off guests. Logging in via Steam to get a metaserver account is pretty trivial but allows some level of accountability. People could alternatively just play in Tournament rooms but given that hasn't happened for any of the history of GoS, I think it's probab...
