    yes, boaby's back again~~

    So recently, as Boaby has popped up again, I've thought of an idea.

    I. Server lock system
    - This locks the server. Other players will not be able to:

    1. Join
    2. Chat (unless staff or higher [ingame])
    - If needed to, the server could be temporarily shut down and then be restarted.
    [multiple saves before the shutdown would probably be a good idea]

    II. Force ban system
    - This feature will force-ban an IP [although VPNs can switch an IP, making it impossible to fully ban a person] in two ways:

    1. Spam is abused
    This means that someone is taking advantage of the repetitive message rule, but it is only a short time before the server un-mutes them.
    Creating several similar lines will forcefully ban the person [which can definitely relive some of the stress of constant spam]
    2. Classic old server mute or rank mute
    This would move a spammer into a certain rank where they would be muted. The server could also be muted if selected so by a staff member.

    I hope that this will help a bit more in reducing the amount of spam in the server.

    ~and no, he cannot DDoS you, but take precautions please!

    Thank you for reading this.

    Looks like Boaby bites the dust again. I do in fact would like this plugin to be implemented.

    EDIT: Boaby griefed Pyro's space elevator
    AND Limey's build.

    Boaby is a Sainte (yay!!!) but this plugin could still be implemented to deal with other spammers.

    We do actually have a system to 'lock down' the server, and all bans are via IP by default. We are working on improving our spam filter as well!
