    Default Spamming through Copy-Pasting

    It's unusual when a player (excluding bots) types a very long sentence/paragraph repeatedly in the time span of a mili-second for each message (chat bubble). This often happens in worlds where players would want to advertise their worlds. For example, worlds like BUYRARENAME, BUYFOSSIL, etc. The most logical explanation behind this is that the player is simply copy-pasting.

    I believe that it's not very difficult to confirm whether or not a player is copy-pasting the same message repeatedly (especially in a very short duration). These players who gain an unfair advantage should be punished accordingly and the punishment given should not differ to the punishment given to spam-bots. In addition to these players gaining an unfair advantage, these players also encourage OTHER players in that same world who receive a major disadvantage to start spamming.

    I believe that it should only take up a small portion of a moderator's time to do this because as I have mentioned before, it does not take much time to be able to confirm whether a player is copy-pasting or not.

    (I acknowledge that some players are very fast at typing but when the players types out 3-4 lines through one message in the duration of a mili-second, it does raise an awful amount of suspicion.)

    Actually, you can on mobile devices without the use of 3rd party applications.

    Actually, sometimes it is hard to know the difference between a Fast typer and a Copy/Paste Bot Spammer. I myself am a fast typer, averaging 125WPM. I can easily do what the bots do, perhaps not each millisecond, but fast enough to be counted as a Spammer.

    Yeah it's completely understandable to be able to write a lot however it just seems impossible to see the chat bubble pop up for the duration of a millisecond / second, followed by 3-4 lines of text in a single message. Also often with multiple colors and perfect accuracy.

    Yeah I agree, I wouldn't be able to repeat the same message over and over again within milliseconds (if over 5+ words).

    Yep the new chat system made copy pasting easier. Now I can copy paste using my phone
    Due to the white line where you type the words, you can now highlight the words

    Anddd is there a rule about copy pasting? As far as I know it’s legal as long as you don’t spam

    Ah, sorry I didn't know about that. But I think most spammer spams with 3rd party program as it is easier + they could just put their alt at some random world and start spamming while their real acc is somewhere else earning those dirty locks.

    When the new chat update came out for iOS, it allows you to copy-paste. Also even before that you were able to copy paste on an iPad for some reason. I used to save messages that I wanted to tell my friends but not retype a billion times and then paste it lol.

    Doesn't Growtopia's spam detection system trigger at around 35+ WPM?
