T-online Abuse Issues
Due to many general abuse issues (directed towards QuakeNet's staff, users and the network itself) from a significant number of users, we have had to take the unprecedented step of restricting all t-dialin users to one connection per host on the network. Any users attempting to make more than one connection to the network will receive an error message (Too many connections from your host) and have their connection refused.
And yes, we acknowledge that this may cause problems for users who share connections and/or host their own bots etc., but this was the only alternative to a global t-dialin ban. We apologise to the many genuine t-dialin users affected by this action, and hope that this will help with the abuse issues affecting the network and its users.
Update: Due to feedback from users, we have decided to increase the limit to 2 connections per host for t-dialin users. We hope this will alleviate some of the problems experienced by families who use QuakeNet.
