Server Admin Questions

Hey so i now have my own server. Really only got it to try it out whilst every other server was causing me to die with Ddoss.

Now that I have some players on it I would like to know:

How do I kick ban or teleport people with symbols as their name?
How can I find out a players steam ID to ban that?
Do I have to ask my server host to manually wipe my server?
Is there a way for me to add admins that don’t have the same power as I do?

Can anyone help with these?

**How do I kick ban or teleport people with symbols as their name?
**Can’t
How can I find out a players steam ID to ban that?
Find their steam profile.
Do I have to ask my server host to manually wipe my server?
I’m sure about this one, I know some updates will wipe the server. I assume you can delete the save file info and it will just make a new one at server start.
Is there a way for me to add admins that don’t have the same power as I do?
Nope, there aren’t any different levels of Rcon yet.

Ok. Thanks for that man.

One more question that I can think of.

Does the server save automatically or do I have to type “save.all” in order for it to save?

My server is through multiplay/clanforge and it automatically saves. I’ve not had to use the save.all command yet.

I’m also with Multiplay, but I’ve been doing save.all just to be on the safe side as I wasn’t sure.

You can definitely ban people with special characters.

Simply find their steam profile from the player list, copy their invisible characters off their steam profile and paste it into console.

You can find their 64bit steam ID by copying their profile into http://steamidfinder.com/, then using banid <64 bit steam ID here> to add them to the ban list. Do note that banning someone does not kick them, you will have to kick them seperately.
