    Even with the current 5 minute cooldown, these messages are still played on repeat hundreds of times per day. We already have /ads; we don't need this advert spam in chat.

    It doesn't show in this screenshot but can confirm Exo's ad is on a correct 5 minute timer. Which doesn't make it any less annoying.

    100% support, even increasing the cooldown to 15 minutes would be an improvement!

    The new .shops find feature removes the need for most adverts.
    AFK shops are a different but shouldn't need advertising often.
    I advertise mine manually, so only when I'm on and only when it's available.

    Totally support. There needs to be a change. Either in disallowing it totally or pushing up intervals for eco. As of now, there is insufficient activity on chat which makes this ad appear spammy. I dont want to ignore every person who advertises things. And recently people try to exceed stuff by using annoying color codes, making multiline advertisement (3 chat messages following another every 5 minutes) and I feel like being in an automated world. I prefer interaction from people which are not afk but online and write stuff. Else I disable chat and wont be able to help the ones that might need help.

    I mean if rules wont be changed, we can also advertise nonsense stuff until there will be a change. I mean its all our right to advertise, lets just put up automatic messages with "/visit me or vote for support on forums to disallow advertisements"

    A 10 or 15 minute interval would be great

    support, or even a much increased interval requirement.

    Also an official statement about ads that spread over multiple lines would be nice. It didn't seem clear if it was allowed or not when I brought it up to staff, but that's really spammy.

    Support, a much much better way to get around the annoyingness of chat ads whilst also allowing players to advertise would be forcing every player on the server to open the /ads GUI every 5 minutes.

    I don’t completely agree with abolishing chat advertisements.

    When we were working on the 5 min per ad rule, the possibility for economy having a longer gap was discussed. I believe we most likely left off at a ‘we’ll see how it goes and adjust if necessary down the road’.

    I think now that we’re down the road a little bit, it’s become clear that the gap on economy probably should be longer, and you, the community, seems to want to back this also.

    I’ve forwarded my thoughts and the thread to the rest of the staff for discussion. Thank you to everyone for adding to the suggestions within the comments.

    This isn't the premise here. Specifically automatic chat advertisements should be abolished. A bot doesn't care if you can see the ad 5 times in the last page of chat, so long as it was 5 minutes ago it will send another one. People can see how much spam their message will make when sending them manually, and can even make the message more engaging on the fly.

    For example:

    Greenbean: how can I make money guys??
    Exo: I'll pay you if you afk at /visit goopieraxx, nobody is there right now so come quick!!
