    Really helpful. It's a basic command question that you can actually answer. Not some tip and/or trick.

    Way to fail. Waste an hour on a corporate speak response that has to be approved by 10 people instead of just answering that it can't be done.

    I like the 'XIV' part of the reply. ^^;

    That aside, I don't think there is a way to toggle the option the other way via a text command, or, being undocumented, no one figured out the how yet.

    I can't really think of a legitimate use-case for doing it that way in any case.

    Easiest way to turn off QM on a party member is to say in party chat to have party leader turn it off so everyone can lot on the items, especially if other party members didn't notice it WAS on or what that dot meant.
    If they haven't turned it off by near the middle or end of fight, then just have everyone log off from the party mid-fight so the leader dies and no one gets any drops. Then never use that person again for a fight and make sure (via /yell?) that everyone else knows this person is a user/leech, too.
    We had (notice past tense there) a few players on Asura back in the day that did this in Dynamis and Abyssea runs, and after they were publicly announced, they either left server, left game, or were never a party leader again.

    Now, don't hate on me for saying this but:

    The best solution is to just not use quartermaster. It is better to just tell people to lot/pass on things. This is generally accepted and the only reason to use quarter is you don't trust anyone in your group- but if that's the case none of them probably trust you either and probably wouldn't join a party using quartermaster in the first place.

    I had the same linkshell for a very, very long time. We never used quartermaster. If a drop was for a specific person, they would lot it and everyone else would pass. This also helps avoid inventory related issues, as someone can hold on passing if the person needs to free inventory space so the item doesnt fall to the ground.
