I just had an idea to deal with plat spammers. I think that we should make it that you cant send tells while in the starting harbor(I can't think of the name atm) and to make it that players in a free trial can't delive the letter to skip that tutorial quest.

I know this isn't that big of a fix for plat spammers but I just thought of it and decided to share.

Better yet make it so when someone reports a plat spam message a GM is summoned like a gennie from a birthday cake right next to the reported offender and all transmitting trafic and transfers are halted until the GM selects the resume button which is right next to the delete the account button.

You know that idea would be perfect but a little impractical, if that were too happen we would end up waiting even longer, or we would end up paying more money to support more gms to fill that position.
Though i think that was a pretty good idea and it should be modified a little like have it so if like 30 diffrent accnts report someone for being a spammer they should have all trafic blocked and they can appeal to be unblocked.

W00T...so they loose 1-2 sec of spamming to run a short quest...or maybe even 4-5 min to run the beg quests to get to the harbor(it only costs 10 gold after all)...:/

Won't do much...


I still agree with the idea of a check-box in the UI panel to "ignore tells from trial accounts".
