Builders setting other users' gamemode
Closed, ResolvedPublic


It was reported from sessybessy on T67 that AdvBuilders can set other user's gamemode besides their own. Edit: I discovered that this extends to Builders as well.

Still needs investigation. Most likely a permission error, but I haven't been able to find the node in AdvBuilder's permissions list. Maybe that's just because I'm half asleep right now though. If you see this, make sure to double check it yourself.

Node should look like*.others or maybe just*

They have* in AdvFlat /shrug

Were they trying it there by any chance?
(idk how much advflat's used nowadays)

AdvFlat isn't even currently loaded onto the server. Either this issue is prevalent below AdvBuilder rank, or AdvBuilders have a spooky permission, which isn't CMI, that allows them to change other folks' gamemodes. It's most likely the former. Someone will have to run some tests to this ends on the server, probably me.

I found the issue. It seems that using the wildcard sentence of the form* in Builder's permissions is what caused this. By adding and setting that to false I was able to prevent Builders, Specialists, etc. from changing other users' gamemode.
