have to stop now. This is the next thing you must take care off cryptic. Please put in some sort of system that allows us not to be openly searched.
Sounds all well and good, but HOW do you implement this?
"Openly searched" is bullcarp - all the gold sellers need is one person per zone to fly around and look at the character names that FLOAT ABOVE EVERY SHIP IN THE GAME to collect PM addys. No "search" function needed. Solution would be to have the option to turn off the floating name...which would prevent group invites and tells as well...play it alone as a consequence of not getting gold seller tells - real bright, that.
RIUGHT NOW is the option rto report said tells by right-clicking the name in char and using the "report Spam" option - which auto-ignores the ACCOUNT in question, and all players on it.
Now, if you can figure out something that'll reliably detect a gold seller and can have the system auto-ban him/her, you'd make a mint - not to mention get a few lawsuits when your software messes up and auto-bans someone it shouldn't have.
