Local chat doesn't disable Emotes. At least on my characters. Doesn't do so in any channel but NPC and Combat, either.

local chat is used for communications a lot, at least by me and many others. RPers also use local often. Also this isn't a solution anyway

I cant wait for customer service to contact us and to try to explain how we got flagged as spammers ... while trying to prevent spam On the upshot though you won't be seeing my dance emotes for the next 12 hours or so!

The irony......
So your solution to stop spam was to engage in spamming and thus got hit with the 24 hr chatban, and you think CS owes you an explanation?

Bwahahahahahahahaha!

I'd be surprised if they even bothered to reply.

Emote is its own category. The checkbox for it was removed with the release of LoR. Also the category Minigame was removed and probably more. Bug reports are ignored so just try to live with it.

Accolades checklist.
Broken accolades... too many to keep track of.

Sadly there used to be a way to turn off Emotes by unchecking a box in chat settings. It was removed with the LOR UI update. My old characters that had it unchecked before are fine, but new ones are stuck with spam. All we need is one friggin check box put back.

Not sure if you'll also get this to work but I saved my Fed characters UI setting in the HUD section of the options and loaded them on my Romulan. My original character had Emotes disabled before LoR and after loading the UI settings my Romulan does too. It's been patchy for me (only worked on 3 of the 4 Romulan's I've levelled) but it may help.

Found a good way to turn off emotes.

Go to the NPC tab and enable all the chat you want to show up in there.

It never shows the emotes.

I'm using the NPC tab as my default while on Risa.

It makes being on Risa even more annoying.

Grrrr!

This was either intentional (and very annoying), or its a bug. I'm hoping its a bug... but the Risa spam is very bothersome. You cant even chat in any tab because the screen scrolls with so much Dabo/Dance spam.
