Muting NPC

I’ve been playing mabinogi for around half a year now and ever since I started playing I noticed that there are a lot of “bot players” that spam chat selling gold for Real money.. my idea/suggestion is to have an npc that walks around Towns like Dunbarton and mute these characters so the other 1000 people playing don’t have to block 50 people a day or deal with that spam.
This may also cause a problem of them just not going into the town to spam so maybe even an npc that just pops up like Nao and mute them!
P.s there’s this bug where people can infinitely spawn their pet and a lot of people “troll” with it plz remove this it’s so annoying.

    I believe something similar was suggested many many years ago. Ultimately, the only way to mute them is to either grow your blacklist until full (also fills up friend's list) or mute the normal speech tab in options.

    As a small thing, I think the "bug" you saw of people infinitely spawning their pets isn't a bug, but that person using the Pet Interaction system in a kind of obnoxious way.

    The Pet Interaction lets you do a lot of things with a pet, with certain things as a trigger.
    One of the things you can make a pet do is play certain animations, like "attack" or "be hit".
    And one of the animations available is "Summon" for pets that have an on-summon Skill.
    It can be annoying with certain pets, like Flying Food Truck or a lot of the dragon pets with noisy summon skills.

    Thank you for the information! that’s really obnoxious of people to do but I guess I’ll just Blacklist them

    The algorithm to determine what is a bot could lead to false positives. The way to deal with them is the same as how to deal with music over-players, you blacklist them temporarily. This keeps them from bothering you and your list doesn't fill up.

    For blacklisting actual bots and their gold selling spam. It is best to clean your blacklist weekly, because chances are you will not see that particular bot again.

    Thanks for replying guys but I think you’re missing the point. We shouldn’t have to blacklist the gold sellers that’s mania job to get rid of them which is why I made my request. It doesn’t have to be the exact way I described but I’m just trying to suggest a way to end the whole thing or find someone else that already has an idea of how that could happen. The whole o just block them has been happening for far too long and it seems like you guys are just used to something that you shouldn’t have to be used to.

    I meant Nexon* not mania. (Can’t figure out how to edit from my phone)

    I don’t understand why you’re sending this here it’s literally the problem I’m trying to avoid.

    Because it's a suggestion for others to use if they are having trouble managing their blacklists. Many people get frustrated when their list gets full. It's something meant for all to read.

    It's a side suggestion for what we currently use to deal with bot spam, and doesn't interfere with your suggestion for need of a muting NPC or some sort of mute option to get rid of that spam.
