    Numerical notations TS5

    Numerical notations after a product name seems for certain products not needed. Why not just call Teamspeak 5, Teamspeak, would've been simple and clean, perfect for the improvements being made.

    Lightbulb Ts 5 feature

    Hey
    That would be great if u add an option to server that will ban people permanently by using vpn or software to change their location or ports. I think a lot of people dont want to see the banned guys again on their server.

    Hello I totally agree

    Because of VPN, ban a person is no longer useful, it is better to play on server permissions.

    In order to be able to ban someone permanently, you need to be able to identify that person among the thousands of TeamSpeak users. This requires something like a global unique ID which you could then ban and it would only affect that person.

    Apart from a myTeamSpeak account (which is optional and not passed to TeamSpeak servers unless enabled by the user), there is no such thing in TeamSpeak right now and therefore no way to identify users so you could ban them permanently. IP addresses can be changed (you mentioned VPN), user names can be changed, even TeamSpeak 3 identities (which are closest to a unique ID) can be changed.

    What you can already do in TeamSpeak 3 is to raise the Needed Security Level of your server which then requires users to spend more time and computing power on generating new identities which in turn may cause the "bad people" to loose interest. However, it also means that many people will not be able to join your server as the security level is too high for them.

    Even if TeamSpeak 5 goes the way of requiring people to register a global TeamSpeak account, people could simply create a new account with a new mail address to bypass the ban.

    I don't think that there is a reliable way to make permanent bans possible unless you do evil things like hardware fingerprinting or branded installers. Even then, there are ways to bypass that.

    And finally: Let's not forget about privacy. Being able to identity TeamSpeak users also means that your usage of TeamSpeak can be tracked and analyzed which some people won't like.

    Long story short: There are always ways to bypass bans. If someone wants to get on your nerves, they will. Maybe it's easier to just set a server password until the problem resolved itself. Trolls get bored quickly.

    PS: "Ts 5 feature" is a horrible thread title. "Permanent bans" would be better.

    Requesting permanent bans is like requesting TeamSpeak packets to surpass the Speed of Light for a better ping.
