It's possible to make a !listmaps chat command, but what would you want to use it for? The output would be awkward when a server has a lot of maps. Also, chat commands that take map inputs auto-complete the available maps if you start typing a map name.

Could sh_listmaps be available in chat as !listmaps and print to chat?

BUG: if you try to perma gag a player it says they are a bot but if you gag for 30min it will work.

Seems to load fine for me (visiting that URL directly downloads the zip). Maybe a regional problem with Steam?

I was told to leave suggestions here, so that's what I'm doing. Short and simple:
It would be amazing to have a vote-mute function, similar to how votekicking works.

if a map gets nominated it will not show up in the map vote.

Is there a way for custom game mode creators to explicitly allow shine plugins to load that have set Plugin.EnabledGamemodes?

Also, I created a pull request on github with a new auto exclusion algorithm for the shine map voter. This should help prevent constantly playing the same maps over and over again.
