Someone was using >CAT<WITH A STUPID NAME at LDA.
>CAT<is for team members only and using it misrepresents the clan.

Could anyone do something about this?people are using other people's names and giving them a bad reputation :evil:

Are people so stupid and bored that they need to mess with other clans?

few brainless players are taking the fun out of the game.

Unfortunately, the way Tread Marks works doesn't really allow for any sort of banning or name protection.

Then again, just try ignoring them completely. You know the integrity of the clan will be preserved, even if n00bs try to make it look bad. After all, mimicking is the highest form of flattery... i think...

Yes Jujaga, and sarcasm is the lowest (and funniest) part of humor.

I have not seen any real bad sportsmanship in TM yet, and I hoped I never will.

Not necessarily true. The name starting with AI- has been banned.

AI- is blocked in the client code, Coax. That was added back during the beta's for 1.0 after people tried mimicing AIs and LDA realized that they need to block those people from using an AI based name.

:evil: At times these small minded meat heads get to me. Pab is right about usings>CAT< clan to demean our fine honable team . I have notice other pea bains using other teams flag.

However Dennis is correct, ignore them and soon they will go away. We all know who the good guys are who play by the rules, they make up the majority of players which makes TREADMARKS the best game ever and tons of fun to play. :)

Of course we can make the game misrable for them by fragging them off the maps.....I kind of like that method.....how about you other TM'rs? :idea:

That Viper II, like me he would pee himself with joy if we could get TM2.

I'd pay another hundred in shipping for my hard copy.

Actualy coaxs The Reason The Name Al- Has Been Banned Is Because He Was One Of The People That Helped Make DX-Ball 1 I Think.That Maybe Why They Banned That Name Is Because They Were Making Fun Of One Of The Programmers.

i read what <cat>pablo wrote i would just ban them on the spot because you have to rergister to change your user name so...

Just in case people don't get confused:

There are 2 players with the name of pablo:

1. pablo (old player)

2. pablito (civilian) & >CAT<PABLITO (ai terminator)

I never use pablo when I play on LDA or any other server... so if you see him, you know it's not me...

(BTW: I forgot you can scan IP addresses, people's information most of the time is embedded to it, so you can ban players).
