Thread: New Ignore System to Help Stop Spammers!

  1. #1

    Default New Ignore System to Help Stop Spammers!

    So, I've noticed a steady increase in the amount of fake accounts advertising casinos. I've developed a new system which would go in "Personal Settings" in the Settings menu.

    Here is a prototype of what it would look like:

    Name:  GTIgnoreSpammers.png
Views: 75
Size:  78.5 KB

    The box will be changed and replaced with a number, which is the level which will be ignored. For example, if you enter the variable "5" it will ignore all accounts level 5 and under (Ignore COMPLETELY: trades, messages, chat, etc.).

    The level can be anywhere between 1 and 15 (or more if devs see this)
    I personally think this will reduce the amount of spammers GREATLY.

    Thanks for reading!

    It'd be great if any mod could see this!

    Bad idea because its ignore normal players too. How beginners can enjoy this game without talking with anyone.

    There's already a setting where you can enable chat from everyone that isn't your friend.

    I think this is devised to ignore spammers in trade worlds.
    Ignoring everyone who's not your friend would be terrible when trading.

    Very unlikely that you will interact with <lvl5 players unless you are a mentor or some other odd reason

    It wont stop them really, but reduce. Plus this gives new players 0 opportunities to interact with people if basically nearly everyone is going to set the limit to level 10 or something. Well people can always turn it back to 0 but most of us wouldnt obviously bother changing it anytime soon.

    And itd be actually annoying for new players to advertise if some random dudes set it up to lvl 15. Which doesnt help most of the new players to sell without them realising that theyre being ignored by this system.

    It's a good idea yet it's generating new problems regarding interaction with new players. An alternative option would be to disable everyone beneath a certain level to use the chat.
    If you're bellow let's say level 10, you aren't allowed to use the chat. This will prevent people from spamming and if you're really into the game, reaching level 10 isn't too hard.

    I'd think this would work better if that option was available either by wrenching a player or /ignore <username> and then you can completely ignore them from in-game and private messaging. This could be laid out the same way as the world ban, pull and kick option, just either giving a button which changes from 'Unignore' to 'Ignore' based on what the setting is or a tick box like in the world lock settings. I think this would be better than ignoring a whole group of people where some just want to get on with the game and play and chat with people. It's just a few individuals who like to mess around who should be ignored.

    This is why you will be able to enable/disable it.

    Maybe make it so players can only set the maximum level equal or less than their own. For example, I'm level 86, this means that I can set the level muter thing to a maximum number of 86, that way lvl 1 noobs won't set it to 125 and troll everyone.
