Features

The TSN Ranksystem brings two components:

1) A TeamSpeak Bot &
2) A Website with:
- a statistics page (demo) &
- a web interface (demo)


TeamSpeak Bot
The TeamSpeak bot connects to the TeamSpeak server over the official TS3 Query interface. The bot does all back-end (background) jobs. It collects the online & active time of the TS3 user, calculates all statistics and collects several other data. It is also available for chat commands. And sure, it gives the server groups to the clients (e.g. military ranks, level, prestiges).

Statistics Page
On the public statistics page are several data available. There are displayed statistics about clients and the server.
It is much as powerful to describe all. To name only a few things:
- You'll find a ranking list, to get the most active users.
- It has also a server usage graph, which shows the online clients and channel per time.
- Client statistics about: online & active time, versions, nationalities, platforms, used slots, and much more...

Web Interface
With the web interface, you can easily administrate the bot. It is an access secured site for the administrators of the Ranksystem. They can manage the bot, like start and stop them. All parameters are defined in this place to individually configure the Ranksystem for the needed of your TS3 server. Sure, it is well documented directly inside the web interface.

Voting

Vote for the next feature for the TSN Ranksystem.


Reason

We have a very long list of possible items. From this list, we have compiled the items that we consider to be the most interesting and want to get an overview of which features are most desired by the community.


Rules

Voting will start on February 01, 2023 at 0:01 (UTC+1) and end on February 11, 2023 at 23:59 (UTC+1).

You can vote once per day, so it pays to check back often.

To prevent abuse, you must register to be able to vote. We ask for your understanding that only such votes will be allowed. The voting is anonymous, however. It is not possible to associate the email with voting behavior.


Effect

The most desired features will then be implemented in the upcoming updates. This will result in prioritization over other changes and implementation based on ranking order.

Installation on Linux

1) Requirements

Before you can start running the TSN Ranksystem Bot on your TeamSpeak server, we need to check the requirements of your environment.

 

For the statistics page and to be able to run the Bot in a PHP process, we need a webspace (webserver).

 PHP 5.5.0 or higher (PHP 8.2 ready!)
 PHP with privileges for the command "exec"
 PHP with unlimited script execution time; especially you should check this on a webhosting
 required PHP extensions:
- PHP PDO extension
- PHP PDO MySQL driver
- PHP cURL extension
- PHP Zip extension
- PHP OpenSSL extension
- PHP SSH2 extension
- PHP mbstring extension

 network connection to the TS3 ServerQuery of your TS3 server on TCP; default port 10011
 network connection to ts-ranksystem.com (IP: 193.70.102.252 + 145.239.130.173) on TCP port 443
 optional: job scheduler (for automatically restart the Bot) like a cronjob

The database will storage all information. This is necessary to get a real time statistic page.

 MySQL (or derivative like MariaDB)
 requires its own database
 required privileges:
- Data:
SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE
- Structure:
CREATE, ALTER, INDEX, DROP

To connect with the TeamSpeak 3 server, we need access to the TS3 ServerQuery interface.

 Network connection between the webspace and the TS3 ServerQuery
 TS3 ServerQuery User with following permissions:
- b_virtualserver_info_view
- b_virtualserver_client_list
- b_virtualserver_client_dblist
- b_virtualserver_client_dbsearch
- b_virtualserver_client_dbinfo
- b_virtualserver_notify_register
- b_virtualserver_servergroup_list
- b_virtualserver_servergroup_client_list
- i_group_member_add_power
- i_group_member_remove_power
- b_icon_manage
- b_client_remoteaddress_view
- i_client_private_textmessage_power
- i_ft_file_browse_power
- i_ft_file_download_power

 

2) Download & Unzip

Download and unzip the file ranksystem_latest.zip.

 

3) Upload to webspace

Upload the whole unzipped folder to a directory on your webspace and grant permissions to the user of your webserver.

 

4) Run install process

Open the "install.php" on your browser and follow the instructions https://your.url/ranksystem-folder/install.php.

 

5) Configure webinterface

Configure the TSN Ranksystem about the webinterface https://your.url/ranksystem-folder/webinterface/.
For each parameter you'll find a documentation by mouse click on it.

 

6) Start Bot

Start the TSN Ranksystem Bot via the webinterface.

 

7) Add cronjob (optional)

Optional: Create a cronjob to be sure, the Bot is running 24/7. This will restart the Bot automatically, e.g. on a database restart.

Open a SSH session to the host machine of your webserver.

Enter the command crontab -e, go to editing mode (in VIM you need to press i).

Paste the following in a new line:

*/10 * * * * sudo -u www-data php /path_to_your_webspace/path_to_the_ranksystem/worker.php check >/dev/null 2>&1

Configure the path, where your TSN Ranksystem is located and replace www-data with the user of your webserver.

Save and quit the crontab (in VIM :wq).

Windows help how to create a new task.

Add the following options:

C:\path\to\php.exe -f C:\path\to\Ranksystem\worker.php check

Configure the path, where you find your PHP installation and also the path where your TSN Ranksystem is located.

Get a hosting

When you are not able to host the TSN Ranksystem yourself, you can ask here for a hosting.

The hosting is absolutely free. If you want to support this service, donations are welcome. ;-)

If we accept your request, the hosting will remain as long as the Ranksystem Bot is running and able to connect to your TS server. Bots, which are offline for two weeks (=inactive), will be deleted. The hosting ends at this point. Before you will receive additional warnings; starting with an offline time of three days.


Request a hosting

With the hosting we take the part of the requirements of the webspace and the database.
You still need:
- ServerQuery credentials   (Required is an access to the TS3 server via ServerQuery; ServerQuery credentials (username and password) are necessary!
- Opened Firewall      (Be sure your TS3 server and all between (host machine, firewall, ...) allows a connection from our IP address 193.70.102.252 + 145.239.130.173).
- TeamSpeak whitelist    (You should whitelist these IP also inside the query_ip_whitelist.txt, which you'll find inside the TS3 server installation directory.)

 
 
 

After submitting your request, you will automatically receive an email for confirmation. Please check your spam folder if you can't find it. By confirming your email address, we will send you an additional email with all necessary information (hosting credentials & guide).
