Okay, so it has come to my realization that auth solves absolutely nothing.
It helps solve the impostering problem a little, but that seems to have become much less of an issue recently.
People imposter openly now-a-days. They don't care if you know they're the imposter.
The real one can be there, logged in and everything, yet the fake won't give a damn, and will go on causing retarded trouble.
Most people now-a-days also have dynamic IPs. Thus, kicking them does nothing.
You can kick the imposter, but they'll just keep coming back.
And if you just keep kicking them, eventually, some moron will say stop kicking, the poll will get rejected, and thus the imposter will suddenly build up some creepy immunity.
Also, some morons will create accounts similar to the real ones, thus making it confusing and pointless to kick them, as they will just come back, and will log right back in, as though nothing happened.

Sol , here are the main two problems:
1) Imposters who act like it's okay that they're impostering; thus, login doesn't stop them, and auth is irrelevant to this.
2) People who have dynamic IPs can come back in over and over, regardless. They can login and play, even if they are trouble makers or imposters, and after kicking them 5 or so times, people will start voting against the polls, and thus these idiots will get to stay; auth is irrelevant to this too.

So, as we can see, the main problems in the server currently cannot be solved but auth.
Thus, I want you all to post your creativity here.
Lets think deep on ways to solve the problems of dynamic IPs and other idiots.
If we all think out of the box, somebody is bound to come up with a solution that will actually work.
Thank you.

actually with authentication enforced they can login and not be allowed to play. we can control what forums accounts are allowed. and i look for new forums accounts everyday to look for suspicious ones.

So since i can control what level each player has i can control if the can play / chat / shuffle up / make polls
I think authentication in the answer.

I think i found solution for your problem !! Try to be polite to people, dont insult them, dont kill your team mates just for fun, dont kick just because you just dont like something...etc...and then, probably, your problems will disapear. Keep in mind that you are only one (or one of few) that have such problems. Think about why it is YOU !!! just for a while...

I don't see how it is our problem that someone is faking you.

the problem is between you both and has NOTHING to do with ANY of the services we're providing for the arma community.

now, please don't spam our forums, your childlish fights do NOT interest us, please use PMs, and anyone annoying on our servers will be kicked, anyone VERY annoying will be banned.


my point of course, if others CTers disagree, please say so.

the thing that can be added is the ability to add forum user to ban/silence list. This could be useful. Just a sugestion...
