I have to say that this isn't really needed. I'm not going to get into all of UN's apparent problems with cracking down on mass messages, but if people are sending masses that are bad enough to warrant punishment, then they can just be jailed or banned. Staff shouldn't have to go easy on people by stepping them through small punishments like this.

Just put the annoying people on ignore. You're all going soft, the lot of you.

If someone is massing something they shouldn't be they'd be jailed anyway. Muting players for being annoying is kind of lame, ignore function was created for a reason.

Personally I'd mute repeat offenders.

Jail/Banning is so out of style, new forms of punishment are in!

I.e: On Zodiac I have a flag I can set so the person can't pickup/trade/buy/sell items.

Typically I'd use this on someone expecting to be jailed/banned, but instead doing something that might have a chance of actually impacting them.

So if you massed something that broke the rules, you'd rather be jailed(where you can't mass anyways), than just have your ability to mass taken away for a few hours while you can still play and such?

right?

you guys are looking at this on the wrong perspective, of "well i wouldn't be the type to do such a thing so it won't affect me in the least"

Disabling Mass Messages could not only be used to do that.

Perhaps an RPG server wants the people to just communicate on Player?

Or Era... I could see Era people only using the Mall and Guild Chat/Phones etc.

Yeah, lets take away the only thing to do on Graal just to stick it to a few players.

I'm in jail on UN for massing Jew. Jew by itself should not be offensive to anybody. It is an alternative to Jewish.

Rather you disable my ability to mass than jail me in the middle of a spar. Makes me look dishonorable.

Maybe it's the only thing you do on Graal, please talk about yourself.

When I used to play Era I raided/earned money and tons of other stuff and I think being able to disable mass messages would bring new server ideas.

the only ones who would be affected by this are idiots who provoke it; it's not like the entire server will have mass messages off because of a couple people

IDK about this. It's just another tool for staff to abuse

I agree to this suggestion.
Why?

Mass Messages are mostly spam. Either they should be removed, but I think an even better idea would be to improve the graal-irc system to become a better equivalent.
There could be staffs moderating the channel, maybe it could even have scripted features like colors, nifty plugins so that people won't even need mass messages anymore.

Maybe for some servers, but they're pretty central to Valikorlia's community.
