Flood protection

Post by Quiche_on_a_leash » Wed Sep 12, 2007 4:26 pm

Hi,

I've just been discussing this in game with a few people and it's seems like a good idea.

Many players seem to enjoy going around spamming rubbish which for all the other players around is quite annoying especially when you're trying to have a conversation with other people.
The more juvenile players enjoy the attention this brings them when asked to refrain from spamming and spam even more.

To prevent this a system could be implement that stops players saying the same thing more than once in a given amount of time and also stops players from saying more than a given amount of messages in a defined period of time.

Some kind of anti-spam system would be quite useful. Especially because massive spamming in crowded areas can create a huge server load. Sending 10 lines per second with a length of 100 byte each to 20 people = 20 kb/s upstream.

Could you please be a bit more specific about how the rules should be?

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.
