Bug Description

I got banned for 5 minutes because I idled too long as a spectator. A kick, fine, but a 5 minute ban??

With default settings? Otherwise, it's not a bug, just a draconian admin. Frequent kicks get you banned, and how frequent they need to be is determined by settings. How long you idle before you get kicked is also a setting and completely off by default (unless there is a bug in the code interpreting the setting).

The only settings are the standard fortress_complete example. It was also my first kick.

Well, those WERE the settings on old CVS fortress. We're talking about idling here. That well deserves a kick after some minutes. But yeah, that's no longer how I'd do it, given our generally better spectator stuff. I'll remove the idle kick.
