Codeban allows you to ban a user so that they are required to complete a code themed mini-game to become unbanned.
The objective of Codeban is for the banned user to select the correct order of smilies and strategically crack the code. The difficulty of the code you are required to crack depends on how long of a codeban you have received.
How to use Codeban
Click on the user you want to codeban, click "Ban", enter a duration and an optional reason, and press "codeBan".
Note: The maximum duration that you are able to codeban a user is 100 hours.
It is also possible to use the Rapid power to codeban users.
Example: $rapid=codeban,6 will codeban the user you rapid for 6 hours. Visit Rapid for more information.
How to play
In order to play, you must guess the correct smiley combination. You will have an unlimited amount of attempts and after each guess, it will display either a check mark, an x or a reverse sign.
- A check mark means: correct smiley in the right spot
- An x means: incorrect smiley in the wrong spot
- A reverse sign means: correct smiley, but in the wrong spot
Once you've solved the smiley combination, you will be unbanned.
Spectator mode allows you to view the progress of a user completing a codeban.
To use this mode, you need to assign the power to your group. When a user is codebanned, a brown square (with a codeban smiley) will appear in front of their name. If you click on it, an application will open on the left of the page, which will allow you to view their game.
High Scores Table
If you have the Codeban power assigned to your chat, you can see the high scores of everyone who has been codebanned in your chat.
To create this table, click on "edit" below your chat, enter your chat password, and create a new tab under your chat. Then, paste $$codeban,a,b,c,d$$ onto your new tab and click on "Save changes".
- a is the specific duration of codeban that you want to make a table for (maximum is 100)
- b is the minimum score that you want to look for
- c is the maximum score that you want to look for
- d is the amount of days you want to look back on (maximum is 30)
Example: $$codeban,15,1,50,20$$ would find and rank any scores for 15 hour codebans that fell between 1 and 50 seconds, and were completed in the last 20 days.
