Description

This is certainly annoying in following situations:

- New map gets voted, everyone got to download
- Apparently 1 player got it already
- Now he is in the position to vcall anything possible (kick abuse, map change, what the server offers), cause the server thinks he is the only one connected

  • Status changed from New to Unlikely or Unfixable
  • Assignee deleted (divVerent)

The main voting UI is handled by CSQC, so this can't be fixed at all (yes, you can counter-vote from the DP command line by cmd vote no, but that doesn't really count as the vcall itself can be hidden among lots of message spam during loading).

IIRC the server could actually count still downloading users as "voters", but even then the vote would win after the timeout.

Suggested fix: as a server admin, ban players doing that.

Suggested workaround: maybe introduce a cvar for a minimum time before to accept ANY vcalls?

IIRC the server could actually count still downloading users as "voters", but even then the vote would win after the timeout.

The vcall succeeds immediately

What is the cvar for that? :o
