Synopsis

@ban <character> <duration>(m|h|d|w|y)

Prevents login with the account of the character for a specific duration and kicks the character from the game.

Examples

@ban Abuser 5m Bans the account of Abuser for five minutes @ban # 1h Bans your own account for one hour. @ban “Mr. Abuser” 2w Bans the account of Mr. Abuser for two weeks @ban “Mr. Abuser” 100y Bans the account of Mr. Abuser for hundred years which is effectively a permanent ban.

Lifting bans

As of writing this article, no “unban” command is implemented. The only way to lift an erroneous ban is through an SQL command on the database. To unban the account “Mr. Atoner” use the following SQL query: UPDATE mana_accounts SET banned=0 WHERE username=”Mr. Atoner”; The account server checks for unbanned accounts every minute, so you might have to wait a moment until the account can be used again.

Note that you have to use the account name, not the character name. To get the account name of the character “Mr. Atoner”, use the following command: SELECT a.username FROM mana_accounts AS a JOIN mana_characters AS c ON (c.user_id = a.id) WHERE c.name = “Mr. Atoner”;

Security

Critical

This command is intended to be used by game masters to remove abusive users from the game. It can be used to ban any account, including administrators.
