    Hi, Im new here so I'm not sure if Im doing this correctly (just realized that I posted in the wrong section but whatever), but I was forced to make an account here as I had been banned due to "hacking" however it was because some aimbotting heavy was changing his name to other players (including mine which was _Blamo at the time) and the system or whatever banned me (idk if the hacker got banned too but I doubt it since he had a different name)

    I don't have much proof but I do have the console log of the following chat:
    Screenshot_1.png

    you can see that the hacker changed his name to Winny as shown by (the real) winny saying "Why did he have to change to my name!"

    So if anyone sees this, please unban me or do something about it

    I really want to go back to testing maps :(

    Real sorry about the mix-up! I messed up the ban because of the name changing, but it should be all resolved now. Super sorry again, I'm still learning the ropes of the server mod powers, and the hacker threw me for a loop a bit. You should be unbanned and able to join again! Sorry about all this!

    Pro tip in the future @Void, if you use the admin menu, someone name changing stays in the same position on the list, which is based on join time.

    Great! I can see how it someone learning about server moderation might get that mixed up. It's just human nature! Glad to see that its been resolved. All that I really care about though is if that hacker had been banned

    That is very good to know, thanks! Saves me the trouble of tracking down and comparing the steamIDs in the console.

    Yeah it works over userid, you can also do status in console, it displays all username and their userid, then you just need to do sm_ban #userid and it's done.
    Another way is to go in spec, spec the hacker, and do sm_ban @aim (it will ban the player you are aiming at, in our case the hacker).
