Expanding "@" but no idea on what servers

Post by Pesky_UK » Wed Jan 20, 2016 8:04 pm

I'm an @ on a few servers and seem to be added to more as time goes on. Today I played on Urban Jungle and saw that I was a "+". An hour later I went back and discovered I was now a "@".

I'm not complaining about this but I'd like to know just what servers I *am* a "@" on. Is there a list I can look at somewhere?

Not servers, but you can see what groups you are in on your profile page at memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=6502

If you have the @ character to the left of your name, you're an admin. + means you're registered, and - means registered name but bad auth.

Also, there are different levels of @, defined by the server owner.
Some server owners give the admins wide leeway to do just about everything, other server owners give their admins the bare necessities to get the job done.

These are the possible permissions, https://wiki.bzflag.org/Server_Permissions
Try this command on your favorite servers, it will show you what you can do. /showperms
Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

Optic is correct. Owners can also make various groups with different permissions for a single server, which is what I do. I distinguish between Cops & Admins as well as hidden ones.
