[UserGroup] can see Psay chat ingame.
« on: August 23, 2015, 02:09:04 PM »
PLEASE EXCUSE ME IF THIS HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE / ALREADY IMPLEMENTED IN ULX. I'M VERY INEXPERIENCED AND NEW TO THE ULX SYSTEM!

Hello!

There should be an option in the ULX settings where you can allow certain userGroups (such as superadmin) to be able to see the psay messages between all the players in the chat.
Maybe as an improvement there could be a Server Psay Log where you can view a log of the latest private messages.

I seem to remember this having been suggested before, but we decided against it due to privacy issues.

If my memory serves me correctly, ulx already logs psay commands, to txt.
It may not be serving me correctly.

You would be correct.
I checked psay command and log functions.

Psay would be logged in your servers logs. It does not echo to admins though.

I don't see any privacy issues here as server owners and other people that can access the servee console / log can see the all the messages. So adding it to ULX will only make it less of a hassle for superadmins.
Anyway thanks for your quick responses and sorry for not knowing this had already been suggested.

Probably not something we'll add in ulx by default, but this could easily be made into a plugin.

If you really want this it would be extremely easy to copy the code for ulx asay and you could give groups access to see other people's psay just like a regular command, if you really want I'll rig it up for you quickly.
