[Info] Family Sharing Disabled on DoDS Main Servers

Family Sharing Disabled on DoDS Main Servers
Hey guys,
Due to the recent "usage" of the Steam Family Sharing feature on our servers to bypass bans placed on users, I have written a small plugin that checks if you're running the game via family sharing and if you are it will kick you. The SourceBans update doesn't actually ban accounts which are ban evaders, just notifies you that someone has joined and I couldn't find a way to easily make it do what I wanted (which was ban people who were coming in under their family share ID) so the easiest thing was to disable the feature completely.

This is a minimal loss compared to large gains. If you're a user who was on our server using Family Share legitimately then I suggest you fork out the $10 to buy the game and play to the rules. This is to prevent those who abused the system and if they want to continue to attempt to join the server they can continue to fork out $10 each time they're banned.
