OK, I'm writing this, but keep in mind, I think you have one of the most comprehensive readme's, but you could add full INI setting syntax.

I am an admin that never uses umods to install MOD/Mutators on my server. Then when I get the thing installed, I want to go into an INI and configure my mod without using a GUI (which you have done a great job on). So for admins like me, I would like to see full syntax for INI settings like this (my settings and descriptions may be incorrect, because I don't know what the values should be)

bAutoDetect=<True|False>
Boolean: decides whether or not MapVote detects the current game mode

MsgTimeOut=<iSeconds>
Integer: Number of seconds messages appear in the chat window

HasStartWindow=<Auto|True|False> (I don't know if those are the values but all possible values should be listed)
Variant: Whether or not the Start Window displays
- Auto - Automatically
- True - Always Show
- False - Never Show

===========

Anyway, just a thought, I think it would help power admins a lot.

I was kind of lazy when I wrote that section of the ReadMe.
I also assumed that most admins would use the GUI to configure
it.
Anyway, I will use your suggestion in the next version I release.
Thanks
