Rules about the "mute" function

Content

Explanation

Command: /adm mute (id) (time) or !m (id) (time).

(id) is the number which is given to a player when he joined the server. This can be found on the scoreboard which displays a small text saying "id: ... " the number given there is the ID of the player. There is never a duplication of an ID on the server. It's also possible to use the name of the player or a part of the players name.

(time) is the duration of the punishment which has been given in minutes. Meaning that when you use the value of 10, the player will be muted for 10 minutes.

The mute command is used to make a player unable to talk for a certain amount of time. He can't talk public, team only, or Private.
