vote jail

is there any way you guys could make a vote jail command? it would be very helpful on sandbox servers when there is no admins online.

Why not just use VoteKick?

What utility could jailing someone as a means of keeping someone in line when an admin isn't online have that simply kicking them doesn't?

Kicking them allows them to return and cause trouble?
Jailing them might work as more a preventative measure against the particular trouble they're causing?
I could imagine ULX 4 having an adjustable vote punishment system.
Allow the server host to select what vote actions can be selected, and perhaps even allow vote punishment per group.
vote (ban and below) for one high group.
vote (kick and below) for next lower group.
vote (jail/maul/whatever/...) for lower groups.

But, indeed, not seeing it for ULX 3.
Suggest learning how to write your own addon for it.

Perhaps, but jailing a troublemaker will probably just anger them causing them to spam voice/text chat.
Most trolls won't return to a server they've been kicked from (in my experience).

Indeed. ADHD troublemakers, on to another server to cause trouble.

The main developers of ULX4 (Stickly Man and Megiddo) are very busy with their personal/professional lives. We have no estimated time for ULX4, sorry.

And just because I imagine it doesn't mean it will be a feature.
I have a creative imagination.
