    Introduction
    In this thread, I'm gonna tell you what could be changed to the management of the staff team and what would improve the server IN MY OPINION. So please, don't tell me things like this: "You are just a player, you can't decide anything!", because it doesn't make sense.
    Then, I would like to get serious answers, and I would like to ask you what do you think of the thread, and how do you think ColdNetwork could be improved.


    1° point: the ScreenSharing system of ColdNetwork
    Yes, it could be strange, but the first thing I want to talk about is this one.
    In my opinion, the SSing system of ColdNetwork has a lot of problems, and I'm gonna tell you what I mean.

    A. You can't use your strings that aren't proven to be cheats. - I always hated this rule because private methods exist. Imagine this situation: I am a known Italian screensharer and I am apart of a team that finds screensharing methods but I can't reveal my methods because they are private and only the SS team has to know it. Then I find a player that is 99% cheating, but I can't find anything bannable with the ColdNetwork Staff's methods, so what I would do is to search the cheats with my private methods. But the problem is that I can't use them because they have to be private and other staff members mustn't know it. So I have to let the player go even if I would have found the cheats with my methods.


    B. Being lazy (Only running an SS Tool and not doing other methods) - I don't understand this. If there is an SS tool that let me easily and automatically scan the computer of the player I'm screensharing, why wouldn't I use it? The screenshares would be faster, and I think it would be better because the staff has to do a lot of works (discord, forums, TeamSpeak, support, in-game rules breakers, etc).

    C. Purposely giving the person being screenshared private strings provided by the cold SS team - Ok, I don't understand it. If you have to screenshare a player, and ColdNetwork gives you strings and methods to screenshare a player, of course when you use the strings you automatically give them to the player because the player you are screensharing can see them. So this rule doesn't make sense unless there is a situation like this: "Hello, would you like to randomly have the strings provided by the ColdNetwork ScreenShare team?".



    2° point: the AntiCheat system of ColdNetwork
    Yes, I'm gonna talk about the AntiCheat of ColdNetwork. I'm not gonna say that ColdNetwork has to change its AntiCheat, but I think it should be set. As you can see from the ban appeals, many people are getting banned because of the lag, but I think you can prevent this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I know that the server AntiCheat can be customized, and you can disable the auto-ban for many checks. By doing that, you wouldn't have any problems with checks like timer and bad packets.




    3° point: the management of the ColdNetwork's staff
    A. If you fail 3 times the SS test while being Helper, you will get demoted. - Ok ok, I agree, the SSing is important, but a staff member doesn't only have to screenshare.
    There are many things that a staff member should do, like helping the players, administrating, managing situations and modalities, etc.
    At least, give the Helpers endless chances, that's what I mean.

    B. As Helper or Trial-Mod, you can remove a punishment, even if you are in Trial. I don't understand this too. If I am a Trial-Moderator, why can I unban people? I mean, you can handle appeals when you are Senior-Mod, so there is no point to give the Helpers the unmute and to give the Trial-Mods the unban.



    4° point: the punishments system plugin of ColdNetwork
    A. When you get banned it looks like you are crashing, when you aren't crashing but you just got banned. - I think this is a problem with the plugin, but it still is a problem. Imagine this situation: I am a player and I'm gonna be screenshared but I'm refusing the SS, so the staff member is gonna ban me. When the staff member banned me, it looks like I'm crashing, and when I rejoin the server it says I'm banned. So I think that I crashed and that the staff member banned me for logging out whilst frozen and I'm gonna do an appeal where I say I just crashed. You wouldn't have many appeals like this by changing the plugin.

    B. When a staff member bans a player that is on another server, the player doesn't get banned, but he has to relog. - This happened many, many times: I remember that when I was a staff member, @Bramza reported a player on the forums for admitting to using unfair modifications like NetLimiter, and @49N accepted the report. The reported player was on the practice and 49N joined the lobby and banned him. But guess what? The player still didn't get banned, so I had to re-ban him. I think 49N can confirm.

    C. The server hasn't got a blacklist command or a blacklist database, so when there is a ban reset, every blacklisted player has to be re-banned for "Blacklisted". - This thing speaks itself, I don't think I have to explain this.


    Well, this is why I left ColdNetwork and what could be changed in my opinion. But now, I'd like to know what you think about it. Do you agree or not? Thank you for reading this.

    Really do you think Timer checks are important?

    80% of Timer checks are true. Like just 2/10 players that appeal a Console ban are innocent.

    Didn't say that you have to disable the checks, but to disable the autoban

    I agree with literally everything here

    I'd also like to add that the management team is 100% terrible and the server is poorly managed, I won't go into much details but someone who will see this and know what i'm talking about

    What the fuck is the point in having rules if you don't abide by them? Imagine treating people differently based on what rank they had / have. Its stupid af

    You also said it would be quicker to run paladin without opening anydesk or whatever so its faster, I agree. I was frozen on zonix because i'm such a god and they ran paladin and that was that. It took 30 seconds and I was let go instantly

    The server is in its dying stages and nothing is being done about it.

    Edit : There is also issues with the staff, there are inconsistencies in the staff’s knowledge.I made a player report and it got denied for "anyone could just say they are auto clicking" but another appeal where a guy said he was ping spoofing got accepted? Why didn't that one

    I've been false muted and literally schooled staff members and explain why the mute was wrong, I have no staff experience and I seem to know more than them, how is that? Staff team needs a revamp in my opinion, not everyone, just a select few.

    Also blacklisted players should be blacklisted forever, not get unbanned on reset because of lack of command. If you're blacklisted its for a serious reason and it should stay that way

    Also everyone should be treated the same.

    But it's the same. 8/10 players that get banned by console are cheating. Disabling auto-ban is just not worth-it.

    KillAura 3F: This is an alert that flags when somebody hits people when they come in range, for example triggerbot. This is possible legit and therefor the person is most likely legit.
    NoVelocity 12C: This is an alert that flags when a person doesn't take kb when they get hit, this is most of the time caused by lag, making them most likely legit. Note: This can also be complete anti-kb. Always check a person's ping if they set off these alerts.
    Speed 10A: This is an alert that flags when somebody moves quicker as usual, meaning this could be lag, client bugs (in badlion client or other client-side anticheats), meaning they are most likely legit.

    Why don't you disable the bans for this? (Btw don't say I'm leaking your AntiCheat guide, because here are just explained some of the alerts of your AntiCheat that is a bought AntiCheat).

    I literally resigned as youtuber because this server was so shit

    People not getting punished for swat threats / ddos threats, why? BECAUSE THEY ARE EX STAFF. WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT LMFAO

    I also reported a staff member for cyber threats, it will get denied, why? "BeCauSe ItS a JoKe" or "He Is A StAfF MEmBEr" who the fuck cares, rules are rules and the rule says "even if joke, blacklisted on all platforms"

    No point having fucking rules if people don't follow them, seriously, how neglagent can staff / owners be to ignore rules just because someone has a rank, its a complete joke, this server is literally full on favouritism.

    That isnt what I mean.
    The problem is that on ColdNetwork, if you are screensharing a player, you must manually SS before, and then run an SS tool, that doesn't make sense lol...
    I mean it is ok to give an SS-warn if you run Paladin and you don't find anything, but why would you give a warn to a staff member who found something with Paladin and who didn't manually SS before?
