Players relogging to reset beacon timer

This is a chronic issue we have on our server. Is there anyone who has implemented a fix for this, or perhaps a relog timer where it black screens for X minutes on relogging-- something like that?

We had the same issue a while back - just spectate suspected players and enforce a 7 day ban - it's not fair play and essentially an exploit.

I banned a guy after he spawned on the same location 17 times ...

- from the grassy knoll -

Thanks for the advice. It's hard to tell a lot of the time however and I'm also dealing with the issues of folks logging out when dead so nothing drops-- or doing so when HvT.

Need to figure out a solution to it that's automatic. Thinking a timeout or something where if they log it dumps the money on them.. or something.

Black screen on relogging doesn't really help since you can reset those timers using windowed fullscreen and just inactivate arma.exe for a second --> No need to relog.

Saving (and checking) a timestamp to server memory or database on every beacon spawn could be one solution and probably not that hard to create.
