    Do you guys think option a

    text/mic spam should be treated as one
    (i.e. mic spam = gag, text spam = rmute, 3rd = ban)

    or option b
    both treated separately
    (i.e. text spam = mute, then vc spam = gag, text = rmute, then vc = rgag, 5th = ban)

    lol what is the suggestion here exactly?
    Are you saying text spam and voice spam are separate???
    If this is suggesting to change to that, no.

    But option a seems pretty logical because spam is spam.
    Say I spam over mic = gag then I start chat spamming = rmute then ban next time I spam voice or text

    if someone text spams, gets muted
    then voice spams and gets round gagged
    third offense should be ban

    instead of

    text = mute
    vc = gag
    text again = rmute
    voice again = rgag
    5th = ban

    wtf hasn’t it been the first way at least since the reign of opal? Doesn’t make sense to treat two offenses of the same category differently just because they used a different medium

    wait can we make so;
    1st is warning + gag/mute
    2nd is warning +rgag/rmute
    3rd is kick
    4th harsher than 1 day ban

  10. Now you just somebody that I used to know VIP Silver

    Option 1 if I have to vote

    My opinion on this is if a player is willing to spam on his mic, be gagged, then while gagged starts spamming nonsense in chat, I'd rather see that player gone asap with such behavior.

    I mean I said this elsewhere, but I was never trained to treat them as if they are the same thing. In fact, today was the first time I ever heard about this. Personally? Option A sounds better. That is probably the way we will go. I'll look into this.

    This is it currently, Option A... if it was set up for Option B it would look like this


    Option B is just silly.

    Anonymous1 do you know how it feel to feel alone VIP Bronze

    whoever said option b is the way it’s supposed to be done is not very smart. it’s always been in the MOTD that spam is spam no matter what medium it is through. and I know for a fact that the motd hasn’t changed at all with the rule rewrite so..... what’s the question.

    If it's ever questioned, Waybackmachine goes back to 2015, and it hasn't changed much.

    Spam is spam. Option A has always been the way spam has been treated. Like others have mentioned there is nothing on the motd to indicate anything different.

    It doesn’t make any sense to treat mic spam/chat spam as different offenses.
