    My message to staff describes how the chat system will work:

    Over the past few days I have seen many chat infractions that have gone unnoticed. Maybe it is because people are not paying attention, or there are just so many infractions that they are becoming incessant waves of spam -- an ocean of incomprehensible text that gradually $@*%@ on itself throughout the day.

    I am introducing several new features to the chat system which are designed to make your job easier, so you can focus on the things that matter. Messages submitted in chat will be automatically filtered according to their content. I have selected a completely preventative strategy that won't punish the player for infractions he/she doesn't even know about!

    Advertisements - Automatically Filtered and the player is messaged when the infraction is committed

    Repeated Messages - Automatically Filtered and the player is messaged when the infraction is committed

    Messages sent multiple times in X seconds - Automatically Filtered and the player is messaged when the infraction is committed

    "Watch your $%*#ing Language!" - Automatically Filtered and the player is messaged when the infraction is committed

    For players that defy our fair laws and refuse to obey the State, there is a new preventative command. This command will deprive the user of speech, so that society will be rid of the social poison!

    /mute - prevent a player from using any communication medium on MeepCraft

    A Muted Player has the same responsibilities as a normal player and must listen to staff members! If a muted player refuses to remove the WAX from their ears then they will be eternally banished from society! (/ban) To get rid of a mute, a player can appeal on the website as instructed by the friendly informative message that follows their attempt to speak.

    I hope that this will reduce the amount of bans that we have on MeepCraft! Players that make infractions and get banned are not likely to appeal (the ban hammer is very unappealing!) because they new to the server and therefore did not recognize the chat rules. Did you know that the majority of our bans are chat infraction related?

    This is great news, Fuzzlr. Thanks! :) I hope the filter is a good one, but if it's not, I'm sure you'll hear about it soon enough. ;)

    ...I still don't get why the caps filter was EVER lowered to just 1 letter.

    I don't, either. I think it makes sense to limit it to three, so we can at least type three-letter acronyms and some people's names correctly. Maybe they can consider that after these new filters go in (because that would reduce the chances for caps spam). :)

    No it sucks, you can't sell/buy in shout anymore because of "repeated chat"

    The repeated shout delay SUCKS. Local is now spammed in the spawn.

    Great. Now change the chat colors. I'm slowly going blind.

    Ugh, mute is literally the worst thing ever to deal with. I'd rather take my temp ban.

    Changes that should be made to this:
    - 2 second chat delay. 10 seconds is too much
    - Re-add the [Shout:Alpha] thing
    - Fix the pink local thing
    - Remove mute
    - Add /clear for Supermod+ Which clears the chat if someone does "123(dot)356(dot)7890"
    - Mods N33D /ban. I hate seeing so many "…- Needs Perm Ban"
    - Lag = Eggplant
