After a long break from Runescape, I decided to join Old School Runescape again and boy I love it. However. There are tons and tons of bots. I report them and put them on my ignore list since it fills up the entire chat with their selling crap or "doubling money".

The only issue is I can only have 100 on my ignore list as i'm a free member and members can have 400. I fill those 100 up on 2-3 days by just reporting people and now I keep getting errors due to too many on my ignore list.

And Yes I could just delete those and add new once, but that's not the point. I've would like to see is either: auto-delete spammers from people's ignore list as they get muted/banned or extend the "amount of allowed ignored players" by ALOT. I don't get why people who actually try to report the people breaking the rules has to be punished to actually see their spam.

Is it just me?

What i'd like, is if that once an account gets deleted/banned it also gets removed from your ignore list too, that way we dont hit the ignore limit so much, because miens full too.

Either that...or have a "clear all" option for your ignore list, both would be good imo.

I'm not against adding a way to clear your ignore list, but I'd recommend not just blocking everyone.

Use chat filters more. Disable public chat. Disable your private chat or set it to Friends. No amount of blocks will ever be enough if you just block everyone instead of filtering chat.
I'll keep score from now on.

We shouldn't be forced to disable our public chats and our friend lists because of bot spam though.

the problem to "bots are spamming messages" is not..."oh, lets disable your friends list and public chat to make it inconvenient for the legitimate players."

A 'solution' that only harms legitimate players is not a solution.

Hence we need a method to either purge names from a list once their insta banned, or a "clear all" option from the ignore list....or a larger ignore list.

So instead of just disabling your chat which is far more convenient, easier to undo, is completely effective, and has no limit...

... you want to increase the ignore cap.

The solution to bots spamming your chat is to ban bots. If that isn't possible, it's better that people actually use the tools made available to them.

You don't have to ignore every bot, because you don't have to even see the messages from every bot in the first place.

And your missing the main point.

Players shouldn't HAVE to disable their public and friends chats because bots are inconveniencing them.

That is not a solution at all.

There is really no 'logic' that can counter that lol.
