I'm no server side software guru, but there was a player cheating on mofo and we could not poll ban him due to his name.

You also can use tab to autocomplete names just like in console. This is helpful if someone has a callsign like agy98pygphgq39g87qgahgorczxbzg

The default autocomplete key is F2

"Tab" only works if you turn off "Jump while typing" in the Input Settings.

You cannot remap the F2 auto-complete key without modifying the client source code. There is no config option for it.

So if you turning off "Jump while typing" enables tab autocomplete?

Didn't know that -- thanks blast.

You generally have to be registered to start a poll.

It depends on the server configuration, if you have the POLLBAN permission.
