    Would be pretty handy if a /staff command or something simular was to be implemented, becouse, when you are in-game, you have no clue IF there is staff online, and IF there is, where they are... So something like /staff or /helper or something like that.

    No problem for the post ;)

    I like the idea. But I don't get it why people want to know if there is staff online and where they are.

    This is already suggested but I don't know who did it. Anyways I like the command but don't modified in wich lobby their in. Otherwise people are going to stalk some staffs. So when a staff member is online you got do /staff tell [Staff name] [Text] for example.

    I wouldn't really enjoy this being added too much, there are a few reasons why. First would be the obvious problem of people stalking staff and that can get a bit annoying. Next is that staff can sometimes be afk or are busy when online. Some are handling reports, checking forums etc... Lastly sometimes we just want to play a game, though we're usually open to help out, we sometimes just want to enjoy the great server. Having one or two people using the command to ask for help wouldn't be too bad, but it can easily be abused and cause staff to constantly be overloaded with people looking for help.

    I get your point, maybe it should be like an option to toggle it on/off

    As long as it could be toggled on and off I would actually like it :)

    So people can alert a staff member, when they've seen a hacker.

    Erm, if a person alerts a staff member that there is a hacker with no evidence, the hacker won't be banned. Staff can't teleport to other servers.

    Honestly i don't really see the purpose other than to stalk staff or to ask a question as it would be impossible to really report someone like that unless you have them go to a lobby with a spammer or something but it would be much easier to just report the spammer or whatever on the forums

    Kinda useless command when the staff can't go to the servers to see if that person is hacking. Now if staff were able to join full servers one day, then this might be a bit useful.

    People would abuse it, calling a staff member every moment, to troll them or just have fun.
    It isn't useless but our community would abuse it.

    So, a -1 from me.

    Record the hacker / Offender and report him on the ''Report a player'' section

    If it is just to check if staff members are online it could mean that hackers would join. Check for staff, if there are no staff then they will enable their hacks.

    Maybe something like a ticket thing that lets the staff member teleport to the spawn location of the game or player location outside a game would work better. Then the staff members just get a messege that there is something and can go there if they feel like doing so.

    Also a ban or "denial of command" on abusing this command would help a lot against abusing it i thing.
