    Private Text Message Power

    Okay, so I have been the admin/owner of a teamspeak server for almost 3 years now, and I have a pretty good understanding of the permissions, but I am having trouble with one thing. I have a server group called Muted that is assigned to anyone that happens to be being annoying. It has negative talk power, they can't send messages to channel, they can't poke, etc. It is basically like a time-out punishment server group that I temporarily give someone. Well, the one thing that still annoys me is that the person is still able to send IM's to me. I tried setting their private text message power to 0 and making every server group have a required private message power of 1, but they can still IM. I don't know if maybe other server groups are negating this effect or what? If anyone can help me I'd be glad to invite you to my teamspeak server.

    I suggest to set the private message power to -10 and see what happens.

    Edit: are those temporarily muted clients also member of other servergroups?

    I've tried giving negative private message power, I've also tried getting rid of the permission completely. I've tried putting it on Negate, they are still able to IM. Yes they are usually part of other server groups also, we have a bunch of misc groups we use which are just fun/funny labels with power equivalent to our lowest permanent group. The thing is that when muted, even if they have other server groups they are still unable to poke, talk, or type in chat.

    Open up a Permission Overview (right click -> Permissions -> Permission Overview) on a Client in the Muted Group that can still send Private Messages and filter for "private" (no Quotation Marks). That way you can see where he gets the Permission from.

    That Client most likely gets a private Message power from a Channelgroup. IN which case you can check the Skip for the privatemessage power in the muted Servergroup and your Problem should be fixed.

    Okay, by some miracle it randomly works. I tried taking away all server groups and it worked, and I assigned back all the other server groups 1 at a time and it still worked. I don't know what happened with it last night.

    Like I said, just make sure both the Negate and Skip are checked for the i_client_private_textmessage_power in your Muted Servergroup and it should continue to work, regardless of what other Groups the User has assigned.
