    bla





    step1: hacker is on 2fort and no admin is there
    step2: some1 reports him
    step3: ixel clams the report
    step4: ixel joins 2fort
    step5: everyone sees the fancy welcome message, the "respect him/her"-message, the tag and the player rank PLUS every1 is like "WOOHOOO FINALLY ADMIN IS HEREEEE HES OUR SAVIOUR YEAYEYEA"
    step6: hacker turns off hacks because he notices all that
    step7: ixel cant ban him because he didnt really witness him hacking


    There was a similar case before, its not the first time that it happened.


    A big specialsuperfancy "fuckoff" to my honey @Starfish@Starfish for letting me do this shit thread while I am tired af, jesus christ I wanted to sleep already.

    This is a very good idea.
    However; is it possible to implement it?

    Would be a lot useful.
    For instance: If someone abuses map glitches, spawncaming, freekilling, offensive language and everything
    else that's against the rules. They'll just stop whenever we join.

    I support your idea.

    Not an admin here, but i can certainly see where you guys are coming from, and judging from the examples you are presenting I can see it being necessary.

    I reported their behavior, and yes, they were very cautious when someone spectate them (me and others NOT admins).
    Tri managed to catch them but I think it wasn't an easy catch.
    So I think the incognito mode for admins it's a good thing, but there are some plugins that will be useful in those situation (Actually pretty old plugins, I dont know if they still work).

    plugin 1
    plugin 2

    Unfortunately many players give a huge welcome to admins when they join, there isn't a solution to that, but incognito + plugin can do the magic.

    This is my very humble opinion as player.

    Oh, I almost forgot: TL: DR :p

    That wasn't an error, if I for example join a server, they also see stuff like my player rank and "Player Triforce.zip joins the game" and the crowd is like "Omg finally tri is here <3"

    So yes, Stealth Mode for admins (adminvips)

    Doesn't matter. Not everyone who's a high rank is an admin, so the players won't know anything.
    If you won't change your name that's your problem.

    This or change name after launching tf2. Pretty sure it doesn't display a huge "THIS PLAYER IS PLAYING ON THIS SERVER" to your steam friends whenever you join a game. Except for someone who likes to waste his time shifttabbing (and checking friendlist) every 10th second, which I highly doubt if he's playing competitive like 2fort.
