Chat Room trolls how to get rid of them

Postby happy days » Tue Jul 04, 2017 8:41 am

Hi guys this new chat is great but the amount of bull that is posted is out of control, I know u can report them but that is not an instant fix, they r very feral characters posting dark hearted thoughts and for me the issue is that they fill the chat line and just basically kill the conversations.
I was thinking maybe a private chat section should be add similar to the one on this forum so u could just avoid the fantasy kiddy talk. The last few days has been packed with idiots and for some reason even those having a decent convo turn wild when a troll appears. I'm not really use to this chat environment, so is this a normal phenomena for online chats etc. Anyone with any ideas, suggestions.

Thanks all

There are several ways to "solve" this problem, but the two most effective ways that I can think of are:

1. Having trusted players by TA themselves to moderate the chat with basic chat permissions such as [delete message] and [set <user> under time out] which would prevent them from talking for 1-5 minutes or however long TA sees fit for a timeout.

2. Implement a mute user option by clicking on the same report player option and selecting mute player to prevent their messages from appearing on the chat for you. In case of mistakenly muting the wrong player, an option to unmute players would have to also be implemented... perhaps they could add a muted players icon on the top left corner for you to view all muted players and unmute them from there, or something like that.

TA hit me up for chat mod; I've experience moderating chats ;)

Hmm nice ideas lurking Rage I'm impressed the trolls weren't address me, well besides one but he really couldn't handle me I think, as he ended up leaving after I wrote him a short message, I personally report them as soon as they start up normally but the chat is busy and time consuming. The rest were directed to others but I don't really like that kind of cheap and low down behaviour so I'm happy to defend others.

Thanks for the input & hope u stay near or at the top good luck

I clicked the report on someone's posts and took screenshots just incase.. What he said wasn't offensive but spamming the some posts 20 times in row I would deem as inappropriate behaviour.. Just figured I would come report it here just in case you guys look at one innocent post and whack me with a ban hammer

Totally agree with what Lurking Rage said above

I do not know how the current "reporting player" works in the chat but my understanding is that devs will take a look at these reports and will warn/ban players , which is good but it just overwhelms them at some point . Instead of this ban , can the devs please make it so that if a player gets a x number of people reporting against him , disable chat feature for that player for a day may be ?

If that same person got disabled from chat so mang times with in a specified timeframe , may be devs can then warn/perma ban this player

Just my 2 cents

Thanks for the concern and suggestions! My understanding is that an automated method is in the process of being created. :)

Mainly spamming, the multi colored symbols at max allowable submission over and over is really annoying.

I would also like the mute button
