  1. Bottiger

    Bottiger Administrator

    Steam:
    Do I have to follow the rules?
    Yes

    Do you sell admin?
    No

    When do I get it?
    It will take between 10 seconds to 5 minutes after payment for us to detect and give you special status.

    Why did my payment not go through?
    If it says you paid with "e-check" it takes 3-5 days because Paypal doesn't get the money until then. Payments with Paypal balance or credit card do not have this long delay.

    Otherwise you can feel free to contact us if you did not use e-check and it is taking a long time. Once every few years, Paypal will have issues with their system.

    Why is it not working?
    Make sure you aren't trying to use a command that is disabled on the server you are on. All gameplay affecting commands like speed are disabled on regular gameplay servers. Certain commands like hat are disabled on quickplay servers due to Valve threatening to blacklist quickplay servers that use them.

    When does my donation expire?
    Type your Steam profile link in the donation page to find out.

    Can I donate before my time expires?
    Yes. Extra days will be added correctly.

    Can I donate for someone else?
    Yes, put in their steam link instead of yours.

    Can I get a refund?
    A partial refund is available depending on paypal fees and how many days you have already used. Send a PM to Bottiger.

    We will not refund people who were banned or muted for rules violations such as hacking.

    In case Skial closes, there may not be enough money to refund everyone because the servers cost much more than a single donation, part of the costs are covered by advertisements.

    The server is full and I cannot connect

    The 33rd slot is hidden and anyone can connect to the server through the console. It can take several minutes for the server to get the person's steamid and detect if the person is either.
    • Not a donator. The server then kicks this person.
    • A donator. The server kicks someone else.
    The hidden slot is then available for you to connect to.

    Where is my forum title?

    Your forum account will need a Steam account associated with it. Forum titles are calculated every 24 hours. This is not an official perk and may be removed in the future.

    How do I change my chat colors?

    Type /store and buy the "dsay" item in the donator menu. Go back to the inventory menu and equip it.

    To change your name color, type /dsay_name color where color is either a color code here or a 6 digit hex code you can find here.

    Examples:
    • /dsay_name {hotpink}
    • /dsay_name 4286f4
    You may use any of the color codes here in chat here. You can even use multiple colors in the same message. Please note that the use of colors will shorten your chat message.

    Instructions for using the /hat command.

    /hat [effect number] [color number or name]
