Need some help?
Here is a directory of assorted help threads / topics for you to wander through!

Team Fortress 2

See the full thread here.

Remember : There are 3 ways to use commands!
You have your command, let's say the kick command, there are 3 ways to use prefixes.

In chat

!kick - means people will see you using it
/kick - means people will not see you using it

In console

sm_kick - how you use console commands.

When using commands on players, you only need to write as much of their name as the server will distinguish.
To use a command on a player by a steam ID (ex.STEAM_0:0:XXXXXXXX) prefix it with a # symbol. (sm_kick #STEAM_0:0:XXXXXXXXX)
When putting a reason, use quotes to wrap the whole thing!
In the examples below, don't use the <arrows> when writing stuff out, I'm using them to highlight what the extra variables are.

Administration commands
admin - Brings up the admin menu, this actually has all the commands you need right there for convenience :D
kick <player> <reason> - Kicks a player from the server
ban <player> <time in minutes, 0 for forever> <reason> - Bans a player from the server
mute <player> <time in minutes> - Mutes a player from speaking
gag <player> <time in minutes> - Ditto, but blocks their text chat only
silence <player> <time in minutes> - Blocks a player's voice and text chat
happy <player> - Overrides a player's text chat with silly messages

Punishment commands
smite <player> - Smites a player
slap <player> <damage> - Slaps a player, damage is optional
slay <player> - Kills a player

Other commands of interest
rr - Restarts a round, meant for broken payload maps, also resets the map time

Team Fortress 2 guides

See the full thread here.

This page will be updated eventually with a list of the more important / public commands, but for a frame of reference I have put up the entire list of commands on the workshop page here.

Jewelbox Help

See the full thread here.


A channel, or board, is a group of discussions that all fall under a single shared topic. Like the Team Fortress 2 channel talks about Team Fortress 2 game or server discussions.

A channel has 4 possible statuses.

  1. Normal - You may post new discussions and reply to them
  2. Reply only - Only admins may make new threads, anyone else can reply to them.
  3. Read only - Only admins may make new threads, but only they can reply to them as well.
  4. Pure override - No one may post to this, it is used to display other data (Like the SCG news board only displays SCG group posts.)


Tags are as they sound, some channels allow for additional tags to aid in searching for a discussion later on. Tags aren't custom, they can only be selected from a list of tags that a particular channel allows.


Additions, or templates, or extra bits/tools that can be added to a discussion when the need arrives. An example of this is is this particular discussion, that has the thread_sidebar and table_of_contents flags enabled. This allows this discussion to have a table of contents for easier reading.

Additions are only accessible to admins with the proper permissions, eventually, more members will get access to these flags!


Discussion overrides or Channel overrides refer to when the normal layout of the respective page has been replaced with custom content that would normally require extra effort or cannot be done with markdown.

Basically, it can be used to make a discussion that has custom code inside of it.

Protected discussions

A protected discussion or post is one that has been previously reported at some point in the past, determined not to be breaking any of the SCG rules, and marked as protected. A protected discussion cannot be reported as it was found to not be breaking the rules.

If the protected discussion or post is edited at all, by an admin or the topic's owner, it will lose its protected status.

See the full thread here.

The jewelbox uses markdown to manage posting, and it is very easy to use!

The JB comes with a tool that helps enter in some bits for you, but there are some additional things that aren't yet on the button list.

Multi-author posts are exactly as they sound. They're posts that multiple people have edit rights to! This is mostly meant for big group posts where the group is either a bunch of admins, guild leaders, etc. All edits are recorded just as normal, and it's like a giant group post.

enter image description here

For specifics, the post still has an owner, the person who first wrote it. They start it, then add in their cohorts and blamo! If someone happens to add something rule breaking to the thread, we will know who did it and there won't be any sort of wrongful punishment.
