I have some tips for those who are votekicking and accusing players for aimbotting/griefing.
Before starting a votekick, please follow these steps.

How to Votekick:
Votekicking command: type directly into the chat.
/votekick [Player] [Reason]
- Replace [Player] with either his ID number (explained below) or a fragment of his name. Keep it to 1 word, no spaces.
- Replace [Reason] can be any number of words, and is your reason for the votekick. All votekicks must have a reason.
Player ID # for votekicks (especially those who have no name):
- Press “TAB”, and you will see a list of players’ names, their ID #, and their score.
- For example: You might see “Bobby King #26 15” as one of the lines. “Bobby King” is his name. #26 is is ID. 15 is his score.
- Players with no name will show up as a blank space with an ID number in an empty row.
- Name method: The name does not need to be his complete in-game name. However, it MUST only be one word.
- Syntax: /votekick [Playername] [Reason]
- Correct Example: /votekick Bobb Griefing blue tower
- Wrong Example: Bobby King Griefing blue tower
- However, names can sometimes be ambiguous. Say we have our “Bobby King” already playing nicely, but the someone named “bobby” joins and starts griefing. If you type either of the “correct” formats above, you might accidentally votekick the wrong guy! Thus, we prefer to use…
- ID method: Use the player’s ID number. You MUST include the # sign.
- Syntax: /votekick [#ID] [Reason]
- Correct Example: /votekick #26 Griefing blue tower.
- Wrong Example: /votekick 26 Griefing blue tower.
Griefers: If you think you’re onto a griefer, but aren’t too sure, this provides some backup verification.
- Check players’ griefing history.
- Syntax: /gc [Player] [Duration]
- Replace [Duration] with a number, specifying the number of minutes of griefing history you wish to view. You can leave this out, which defaults the check to 2 minutes.
- Read the message. If he/she has removed 30+ blocks, from other players, you can be pretty sure that he’s griefing, so votekick the player.
Aimbots: If you’re very sure that someone’s an aimbot, do the following steps.
- Try and reach an admin: admins can deal with aimbots with a permanent ban as opposed to a flimsy 30-minute-votekick.
- Use the /admin command to shoot a message. Admins might not be around to respond.
[li]Syntax: /admin [Message].
- Example: /admin Bobby King (#26) is aimbotting on hallway.[/li]
- Get on the #aloha IRC and find one of the ops/voiced people. Type our names exactly and we’ll probably respond.
- Accuracy Check.
- Syntax: /accuracy [Player]
- Example: /accuracy #26
- Aimbots often shoot multiple bullets at once, making this go way above 100%. Not good enough as evidence by itself.
- If [Player] is unspecified, it checks your own accuracy. See if you can be more accurate with your shots!
- Kill-Death Ratio Check.
- Syntax: /ratio [Player].
- Example: /ratio Bobby
- Needless to say, aimbots often have a high KDR. Not evidence, but it just piles on to the suspicion.
- If [Player] is unspecified, it checks your own KDR. See if you can improve on your ratio!
We’re human. We all make mistakes:
- Maybe that guy you thought was griefing was just fixing his fort.
- Maybe the aimbot was just a super-pro player.
In any case, you can cancel a votekick that you have started.
- Syntax: /cancel
- Example…wait, come on, do we really need one? It’s one word, and only works if a votekick you initiated is currently in progress.
- Pay attention to the chat after you start a votekick. Sometimes, the guy you’re kicking, or maybe even other players will notify you that the votekick was wrong.
- Cancel the votekick if you realize you made a mistake. Remember: that votekick could be against you, and you’d want someone to cancel an unfair votekick.
