    Suggestion Title:
    Chat Timer
    Short Description:
    Donators would have the ability to chat faster than normal players.
    Long Description:
    Title: Chat Timer

    A timer would be put on how many messages you could send for example: Players posts a message then tries to send one right after it but is met with the message "Sorry but you cannot send a message for another (seconds). If you want to be able to chat with no time restriction please visit (website) for more info."

    I'm not even a donator myself so i'm not being biased towards anyone in fact this would hurt me if anything but would keep the server stable.​

    This is a good start but it would need to be combined with other methods to be an effective incentive to donate.

    THIS IS VERY GOOD IDEA! 101% I'M AGREE WITH THAT! But...
    There must be always be a but(t)- party chats, what about them? or priv messages what about /tell? Not visible to every1 chat also be restricted by that? If yes I'm NO to this.

    Umm @LordEreh i have absolutely no idea what you just said. I'm guessing it's something about will private messages be restricted. The idea was more or less just global chat.

    A limit of 1 "/g" message every 5 minutes. You can stack cooldowns up to send 3 at a time.

    But when trying to help someone (and giving instructions), it could get in the way.

    And it WILL get in the way when asking for help. Global might even die because of this. People will more often resort to asking Google for help. And writing tickets for trivial problems just to save chat messages.

    ... What if the chat is empty, the limit gets removed? I would prefer to see 2 people chatting over chat being dead. Even if one is just spamming nonsense. ... So the idea here is to implement that limit only at times when chat gets crowded with people/messages.

    I personally think that...

    1) \msg be patron 1 rank only
    2) \party be patron 2 rank only

    This would result in a chat being filled by messages that are of no interest to other players and with messages in other languages, because players would not be able to use /msg or /party for that.

    /msg should be unrestricted. Even if this means people start abusing it instead of talking in /global.
    Ignorring is easy. Helping someone or asking for help without /msg is not.

    I think delaying the server chat would upset quite a few people. A lot of players, especially experienced players are very chatty, and therefore prefer to have a social aspect in game. Adding a timer onto this may frustrate a lot of players.

    Although it maybe a good idea on a high populated server, I doubt this would benefit all servers?
