alpha clones: Trade hub local

#1 - 2017-01-11 01:21:42 UTC
Concerned local chat becoming unusable as free charter spammers in hubs.
Can make it local chat not worth my wile to block chat spam well.

Free: zero consequence chat spam.

Nothing would change.

Local spam in trade hubs has existed since EVE's creation.

We like math :
We all used to pay and could post ...

then was added free and could post grr.. my issue.

to balance Free to play it should be pay to post in local.

pay = post

free-> post / new

balance pay to post.

"Why not" i make 1-2 post in local a day.

I"ll pay 100m per local chat post .

raise your hands if you like local spam. X

how about a straight limit

If ya cant say it in local in 20x lines of text in 24 hours open a privet chat.

Goal is still a use able Jita local chat.

With the reality there are 2,800 random people in there.

Blocks were never that effective. People who used to use disposable trial characters are now using disposable Alpha characters. If you want to block the spam, change the channel!

I posted this wile a bit on the juice.

I'm fully aware of the available options after playing eve 13 years

This i likely a dead end.

Local has always been nothing but spam and scam. It's the one thing that hasn't changed in any way from what I remember from 2009.
Game changes but chat stays the same.
