For server votes you can do something like this as an example Use settemp to only set the new vote settings for the current game, it'll revert to normal server settings on map/game change.

alias 8bots "settemp minplayers 9"
addvote 8bots

@forum_admin, can we make this one sticky? This is helpful for new server admins.

Probably need to edit the first post to point to the wiki itself so it won't get outdated. But there is no dedicated wiki page for server administration.

Probably also change the title to "New Server Admins Read this" or something similar.

Good point about a starting point for new admins in the wiki.

I also think we should include a complete downloadable server.cfg that includes the most common use cases (e.g. voting screens for game types and maps) to start with.

We do, it's in the Xonotic/server folder, together with a readme. Feel free to improve it and link to a wiki page from the readme and/or server.cfg. The docs we provide offline (in the Xonotic/Docs sobfolder) sorely need updating. Ideally we'd merge them into the wiki so things aren't repeated everywhere with varying levels of outdatedness and maybe incude a copy of some pages with the game for offline use.

I agree we should have just one place of truth, but should have multiple pointers to that one place. A readme file might not be obviously. Improving the wiki sounds like a good way to help it.

These are very good (I, too, based mine on packer's). However, it might be a bit too overwhelming for new admins.

I have updated the first post so it will still point to the current information even in case of my eventual ban.
