Admin tool idea: Uncanonizer

Recommended Posts

Recently I've had a bunch of run-ins with rounds being ruined by metalamers, and by the time we ahelp the situation to try and get it under control we have gone too far and have to just deal with the metalame.
I thought of a way to combat this, an admin tool called the Uncanonizer. It essentially works like the mind wipers from MIB. It has the appearance and functionality of a red flash and has a UI that sets a prompt to show to players when they are hit with the uncanonizer.
For example;

  • Person metagames and calls out rev
  • headrev that would otherwise be uncaught if not for metalame is now in sec
  • LOOC dispute over metalame and how to fix it
  • Too far gone to release the headrev
  • Admin steps in, uses the uncanonizer, and everybody in the room sees a prompt that says "Your mind fogs up, and you can't remember why (headrev) is in custody!"
  • Since the headrev was canonically never called out, they go free
  • Timeline stitched back together by blaming memory gap on SSD or bluespace, metagame incident repaired

Yes, wyci, but I have no experience with toolbox and REALLY don't want to learn toolbox.

This is either a good idea or probably not and yet I can’t figure it out.

 

Slowly trying to comprehend this entire thing though, as I’m a little confused.

basically it's a flash but instead of astigmatism it's words
admins use the words to make people forget like the mind wipers in Men In Black
(e.g.  metagame gets someone in jail, admin uses uncanonizer, "You forget why (x) is in custody," you then release them because they have no reason to be in jail)
