    Do I even need to explain?

    I know this used to be a rule, but I think it got removed because freebuild was gone for so long. Now I want to see it added again. @Mac @Efcluke94

    Yes! Can't agree more! Please, this is so freaking annoying, creative used to be a place where you could just relax and chat with the community members, now the chat is 98% advertisers and 2% people complaining about advertisers...

    The same rules as network wide apply. People are more than welcome to advertise their plot, but if they start spamming it they will get muted.

    The only problem is that the advertisers are taking up the entire global chat. You can't use it for talking :/

    I agree, it's very annoying, no doubt about it.
    But when making it muteable you still got some problems..
    You need to warn them, report them, and eventually they get muted a few weeks/months later...
    Of course, staff could mute them immediately. But within a few weeks, when the hype is gone, there won't be a staff member on all the time.

    My solution would be to remove the diamonds, they cause this problem.

    What I can do is add something like a 5 minute global chat cooldown so each player can only advertise once per 5 minutes. That should potentially help cut down on the amount of plot advertisement spam.

    But we still want to be able to talk to people on other plots, without without having to search between spam :/
    But in the end, this might be the best thing to do, because this spam is insane.

    Could work, but it would be bad for us people that actually wants to chat too. Maybe you could make it so you only can say words like crative, plot, open, tp, diamond etc. once every five minutes?

    No, but it would reduce it.

    I don't mind people advertising their plot as long as they don't spam it (do it too often).
