I really Really REALLY hope they put back chat limitations.

Last week patch that increases the number of characters you can type in one message was a good idea. However they allowed too many characters. Ever since players have used their new found freedom to spam the channel with ASCII pictures and other such nonsense. They and the "gold sellers" are setting up their message to be so long even extending the window up you can't see their name to block it unless you do some creative stuff with the chat window.

I so hope they put back in some kind of limitation, maybe not to the extent it was originally but definitely reign in the current freedom these idiots are abusing.

dont need to break the character limit to fix chat. simply remove the paste command so people can stop pasting that bullshit.

also restricting chat characters wont stop gold sellers.

It won't stop them, but it will reduce the size of their individual spams.

Eh, not a rp'er, but I like what they add to the game. It's hard as hell to rp one line at a time.

 

It's also hard to say anything in general without extreme summarization under the old limit.

Locking channel chat to people with only 100 energy will though.

It was a bad idea to increase the character cap without a lot to help stopgap the gold-scammers, but man are those gold scammers good at stylizing their spam. Some even took advantage and made their chatbox longer than the default chatbox so most would have to resize the chatbox just to block them. 

I saw an idea where if enough people chatbanned someone, that user wouldn't know and still be able to chat - yet no one will see what they wrote.

I would like the ability to make my own chat filters, that way I can adjust my filter when I need to and adapt to the spam.

I don't see any legitimate post needing more than four or five lines. Most games have a limit that genuine people can work around easily. Paste command is useful for lots of things like web addresses, so should be allowed. ASCII doesn't bother me. Just giant sized ones every few seconds until I block the posters.

I think it's about time some basic filters were added though. It's ridiculous that the advertisers can post their web addresses so clearly over and over again. How hard can it be to ban any post containing the names of their websites and any containing "VVVVVV"?

Yep. Many games do just that.

I like the idea of a minimum level prob 15 not too hard to reach yet still takes a little effort. I love the idea of creating your own personal filters. I'd come up with as much possible ways they can spam their address and block em all and add as they make some that I've missed.

It's annoying, but you can at least click and hold down the top left corner of the chat window and drag to increase the size. Doing that will allow you to see the spammer name and block them.

I've encountered some that extended way beyond even when extending the chat to the top of the screen. I managed to pull off blocking them but it does get annoying, but seriously why do they need THAT many characters allowed in one message?

That would be aweful, since the channel chat is often something very resourceful for new players and an unjust punishment, besides 100 energy is quite a bit, that would leave many players out that have even reached level 20+

Restricting chat characters is annoying and makes writing more than 2 sentences horrible experience

You guys are asking for the wrong things.
Ask them to go ahead and spend 100k to hire a developer to handle this issue with their chatserver.

Automation regarding chat filtering is totally a thing.
But expensive.

Which is why most companies don't do it.

This same rule applies to RMT.
But because so many don't know this, they are not obligated to do it, because it costs more money.

I can get 100 energy by level 20. It's not hard.

You sir are my hero. Cause I sure as hell can't pull it off nor can a lot of lvl 50's I see. Granted those guys grinded to 50 and didn't care much about gaining knowledge but 100 Energy at 20 is one hell of an achievement.

Make a shorter limit in the global channels. Keep the long limit for guild, party, rp, and local. Remove paste. Add 1-click no-energy-cost report button for gold spammers.

every mob from Olvia to Velia get knowledge on, talk to every npc, talk to every item that lets you talk to it as well. Do this while following quest line and every quest that you can get, by the time you get to Glish, you should have 100 energy. It's not hard, just time consuming. Discover every node, using bddatabase as a way to locate npcs. Talk to npcs beside npcs that you can gain amity with. These npcs can sometimes provide stories for knowledge. Certain quests give knowledge as rewards. If you level too far from certain zones then prepare to not be able to gain this knowledge, you will have to make an alt and go back. People never tell you that certain quests are level restricted. Also, do not make an alt of the same class as your main. This will make it so that you cannot follow certain quest lines. I assume these last two are bugs within the game.

I'd like to see 100 character max and 15 energy per chat.

Those level 50s rushed and didn't do the actual content. I'm level 22 and have 90 energy... concentrating almost entirely on the life skills. 

I think this will be an advantage for life skill players as the combat players won't want to go back (and can't easily catch up) to players committed to advancing gathering. crafting, processing, fishing, etc.

Considering it takes literally 5 minutes to hit lvl 10 that wouldn't stop then one bit. Bump it to 20...or tbh just put the captcha that we have on the mp in general chat if you speak x number of times within x number of minutes
