Hi,

First of all i want to apologize for my english, if you expect some perfect english close this thread, i speak some other languages and english is not one of the good ones Lets get to the subject.

Since its becoming more and more annoying i was thinking how to fix the trade spam in the regional channels and make it more enjoyable. Im not agaisnt trading in those channels, i do it myself, but the way it works right now its impossible to trade or read any offers because it goes too fast with spam and 7 lines with blank space type of offers. Something like this:

And so on. But all of that just happened in 2 seconds, in the first second the first 3 messages already dissapeared by the next ones spamming hard. Well, you know how it is right?


I have 2 ideas to fix this:

My first idea is to limit messages like in twitch.tv in slow mode, 1 message per X seconds only in the regional channels.

Second idea is like WoW iirc (dont play for year and half maybe). If X number of people click your nickname to open the options menu in chat (check steam profile, check dota profile, report player, etc.) we could have a button like, report chat spam, for example if 25 people click that button in less than 2 minutes, you get muted for 5 minutes and u cant talk on that channel or in any channel at all. This could be good for any channel imo.

I know the ignore button exist, but im sick and tired of ignoring like 30 people per day (till i give up), and they keep coming and coming because unless you spam your trade in the channel, noone is going to see that, so spammers force other users to spam their trades too, its a never ending cycle. Im pretty sure if you tried to trade in regional channels like Europe XX or North America XX you know what im talking about. If you think im exaggerating with the randomtrader 1,2,3... im not even close to reality haha, go and join Europe channel and you will see!

What do you think?
