Our recent software updates includes some new features just for room owners to help combat spammers and flooders from disrupting your room. Here's how they work!
Using the /setopt command, you can adjust multiple limits. Here's a brief rundown on the latest 3 parameters:
This will delay chat messages from free members for a few seconds. If the member leaves the room before the message is posted, the message is discarded. To remove any delays, change the attribute of the delayed_posting parameter to 0
/setopt delayed_posting 0
This setting limits the maximum amount of characters per message for free members, or disables chatting completely for free members. Here are 3 examples of how to use this setting:
1: /setopt text_len_limit off
This will block all chat messages from free members in your room.
2: /setopt text_len_limit 0
This disables all text limits. Free members can chat without character length restrictions.
3: /setopt text_len_limit 50
This limits free members chat to 50 characters. Any chat message with more than 50 characters will be filtered/discarded.
This setting limits the maximum amount of emoticons that are allowed in a single message. You can choose any value between 0 and 250. If you have a limit of 10 emoticons per message, and someone sends a chat message with 15 emoticons, only the first 10 will show in the chat.
Remember, you can always type /help in a chatroom to see which commands are available to you. If you need help with a specific command, just type that command without any arguments to see more details. For example, you can simply type: /setopt to see all available settings, as well as parameters for that command.
