Option to not allow "Player" names

Post by Hezkore » 03 Jan 2019 18:16

I run a server, and there's always at least one user in there named "Player".
They usually just build a few things randomly, then quickly leave.
I do have the option enabled to clean out empty or unprotected companies, but it's still pretty annoying.
Is there a way to ban the name "Player" from the server?
Keep it simple.

Not directly. Those server which do, use an admin port client which e.g. moves "Player" to spectator, tells them to use a proper name, and whatever a script on your server can do.
