Spam chat bug

Post by picsouman » 02 Mar 2019

Hello,
i'm reporting a bug and a player by the way who was mad then he decided to spam the chat.

The problem was that the game was impossible to play because of the chat spam. Mayeb can you add a limit on number of messages send and the length of 1 message, or something like that ?

The player who was spaming was 55IVE, here you can have a short video i took to proved the bug and, by the way, the useless player ;)

Hi,
200 characters per message will be enough?
max number of messages per round? 50?
max number of messages in 10 seconds? 3?

i think you may use a nb of caracters per 10 seconds, its sound more intersting, like 200 chars per message and 200 chars per 10 second and a limit of 4 message per 10 seconds too

I agree. If ppl wanna chat (me included as I'm a culprit of a in-game chat here and there); there's a discord for that. especially if they have mics. no need to inundate the servers! If they need to go over in round limit; they can move to the discord.
Let me LITE your NITE :):

I'd suggest - 100 characters per message, 3 seconds wait time per each message and a system that doesn't allow you to send the same message repeatedly (like minecraft's system, to avoid flooding).
Example: https://i.imgur.com/0Vs0LiB.png
Also, if you send five (or ten, at most) messages then you shouldn't be able to send another until someone else sends one (the message wouldn't appear on chat and there would be no way of alerting that the message wasn't sent.. this is good for avoiding spammers).

I think this would be the best option for our chat and we'd see much less spam. If people don't like how it works, they can go to discord for chatting (as litenite said).

There must be restrictions, but normal user shouldn't notice these restrictions, so i will not show any timers, or character limits.
Limits must be set so high that normal user will never reach them.

200 characters is not a lot and not a problem.
Is it possible that someone will answer 2 times in the row with "yes", or "no"? I think highly possible.

Ok, i will add 5 message in the row limit.

I meant the restriction where you can't type like this:
1) Yes 2) Yes 3) Yes
But you'd be allowed to type like this:
1) Yes 2) No 3) Yes
As long as you don't post the same message twice in a row, you won't get the message saying "Do not post same message"

MrTitix you think you can exceed any of these limits?

we are setting limits to stop spammers. If you think that any of these limits will somehow impact you, then tell me winch one
and i will increase this limit. As i wrote, normal user shouldn't even notice any limits.

When we explain something to someone.

I mean it's not like forums where you have time to write.

In game it's more "live-tchat", you write and think at the same time
