    Creative, creative, creative, currently better known as the spam zone...

    This major spam issue is simply caused by one thing... diamonds.
    (it's actually cause by two things but the whole "how does this gamemode work"-spam will go away afther a few weeks).

    If you like a plot, you leave a diamond! Cool/unique idea you would say but it has a huge drawback.
    People want more and more diamonds, and there's one way to get more. Spam chat! you'ill get loads of diamonds, for sure!

    Me, as a "non-like farm"- player doesn't really enjoy this "I want diamonds" spam.

    Let's get to the suggestion in this thread, i'v got a few actually.

    -Remove the whole "give a diamond" feature.
    -Disable colored chat in-game. (this should get changed in all gamemodes actually).

    And to be honest, i'm almost sure that this won't happen, but something needs to happen!
    So please leave a comment if you have an idea of reducing this spam. Because I can't come up with
    anything else other than this (extreme) solution.

    Q&A
    "Isn't that a it too much? like.. someone spend time making that feature and it's a great way of checking out people's creations".
    I totally agree, but I don't like spam and I simply don't see another way of reducing this spam.
    And to report every single one of those spammers is pretty much impossible. (especially when they get punished weeks/months later).

    "But Skifby, just disable global chat! lock?"
    No! I want to be able to chat with other people (that's why i'm playing multiplayer and not singleplayer) over at other plots, in a normal way. Without having to /tell, /fmsg and seach for messages between the huge spam.

    Conclusion
    Something needs to change, for real, or people will think that it's normal to spam chat.
    And it would be a shame if we all end up disabling chat in a multiplayer game...

    an ignore command would be cool, perhaps.

    I don't even care about this entire Diamonds-system.
    Most of the top rated are only Staff Plots and nothing more, and it just brings spam of people asking for diamonds.

    I'd actually like to see a Friends-only Global Chat mode.
    I only receive/see messages from my friends and won't have to bother this:
    ''TP TO ME GIVE ME A DIAMOND FOR MY SUPER PARKOUR PLS''

    It's true a lot off spammers who wanna have the diamonds like they said before a /ignore command would be cool

    An Ignore command will most likely not be added. It's been suggested long before this ever came up, and there'd be too many problems with it.

    Maybe start making plot advertisement a punishable offence again xd

    Also though about this, but staff would have WAY more reports to deal with. (and they are already a bit behind).
