Any way in institute an all caps blocker/penalty?

By MrDSire July 02, 2020, 00:58:02

Question to the developers, are you working on any sort of all caps blocker? I don't know the complexity behind the code of the game but I would think there would be a way to detect a certain amount of consecutive capital letters and either block the message from being sent entirely or instituting a silence on the person for a set amount of time (or both). The same with all the symbol spam and the like. It's just irritating WHEN YOU HAVE THE ENTIRE IN-GAME CHAT FILLED WITH OBNOXIOUS BLOCKS OF ALL-CAPS.

Not to mention a violation of the game's own rules:
"Making excessive use of special characters, highlighting your message by writing in capital letters, repeating a character so draw attention, and using the @ symbol or any other character in order to display the automatic warning message "Attention" against dangerous sites are also forbidden."

I know there's ways to report these individuals, but if I were to do so through the proper channels there wouldn't be enough hours in the day to report all infractions through the proper protocols.
