Should we be able to send more mails without getting the message: "your message was suppressed.." — Guild Wars 2 Forums

Should we be able to send more mails without getting the message: "your message was suppressed.."

When I wanted to send two mails to a friend I got a message after the FIRST email that the message was suppressed due to excessive messaging ..
I was just logged in and it was the first email I sent. Immediately afterwards I received the message: "your message was suppressed due to excessive messaging" .. i send ONE mail to a friend .. that's not excessive.
Immediately afterwards I received the message: "your message was suppressed due to excessive messaging" .. i mailed ONE friend .. that's not excessive.

I understand that this measure is meant to prevent advertising and illigal sellers, etc., but can we think about increasing the number of mails that we can sent, for example 5 mails.

What is your opinion about this?

P.S. sorry if not everything is explained clearly, English is not my best language :astonished:

    Did a lot of dungeon runs to finish my dungeon collections.
    Most people don't bother getting dungeon specific food, so I usually bought food for all the dungeons I planned doing that run.
    Now...I had to email those to the party. Oh joy oh joy "your message was suppressed"
    Would be nice to increase the limit to 5-10 emails for those in the same party/squad/guild/fiend list.
    Guess we should not hold our breath tho until this might get implemented.

    I can see why they put restrictions on it to stop gold sellers and the like but people on your friends/guild list should be excluded from suppressed.

    Don't argue with idiots, they drag you down to their level and own you with experience.

    Pretty sure the Devs said they are working on the algorithms (or whatever is used) for the 'excessive messaging' issue.

  • StinVec.3621StinVec.3621 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I definitely think it should be higher than 1 before kicking in (which it sounds like this is unintended and being worked on), but I do not see there being many common occasions for needing to send more than about 4 in the span of seconds to under a minute.

    In the case of prepping for a dungeon (sending food items to the other 4 members of a party or coin/items afterward), and with raids, perhaps the algorithm could detect that you are in a full party of 5 or a full squad of 10 and temporarily boost the message limit higher.

    With this temporary relaxation of the restriction after verifying your party/squad status and count, it might help prevent message abuse by gold sellers/spammers that an outright increase of the limit would permit. I can't imagine many gold sellers can fill entire parties or squads in order to trigger the increased allowance of message sending, though they clearly could join parties/squads via LFG in order to gain the relaxed restriction. Perhaps a timer of needing to be in a party/squad for so long before it is relaxed would help alleviate that as an issue. I don't know, but perhaps it is an idea ArenaNet can consider looking into to see if it would be a viable option for resolving this issue.

    WOW - Done with forums for good now! - Someone creates a thread about Pharus's light on crit effect asking if it is a bug - I get warned for being "off topic" for commenting how to use the search and pointing out threads discussing Pharus and it being an intended effect... Goodbye all. Happy gaming.

    The suppression system can become circumvented if one varies the wording a lot. The system detects what words one uses in what order. Repeating the words or actions like sending letters with the same content 1:1 in a row will result in becoming suppressed very fast. This happened to me too when I gifted colors to different guild members, I could send letters to two of them but the third one was suppressed. Afair I used the same title for every letter, didn't write anything there and just attached the colors.

    But like in a normal conversation one doesn't say the same sentence every time but reflects on what has been said before, so the words vary a lot. Conversations like these also do not get suppressed in map chat.

    I'm not exactly sure about it, but it seems that also linked PoIs and WPs get detected and also count towards the suppression, which makes e.g. announcings for quick respawning events to become suppressed pretty fast if one doesn't pay attention to the wording. Though changing the words and using synonyms (e.g. champ, champion, super strong mob, big bad spider queen, need help @ [Linked PoI], come to, [Linked WP] event, etc. or activating Mentor/Cdr) should prevent the suppression.

    Message supression system has same effect as DRM in games - it is meant to stop bad people from being bad, meanwhile it mostly hurts normal players.

  • I don't think it's meaningful to ask us, as players, what we'd prefer since, of course, we want less.

    From a player perspective, there should not be any suppression in the game. From an efficient "game management" perspective, there should be a ton — as much as possible to reduce the need to require staff to follow up. There is no perfect balance.

    Without seeing the suppression numbers that ANet has (how many messages are suppressed? how many people get suppressed ever? how often? ...) and without the prevention numbers (how many spambots do we have now? how many reports did we used to have? ...), it's hard to know whether the current limits are effective, overkill, or even too little.


    Message supression system has same effect as DRM in games - it is meant to stop bad people from being bad, meanwhile it mostly hurts normal players.

    It's demonstrably different: we used to have a ton of spam in GW2 everywhere & now there's very little to bother us. So it changed the behavior of bad companies. It's also not clear how many normal players are affected or how often. Certainly I'm affected frequently, but many people I know weren't aware that there's any mail suppression, as they rarely need to send multiple emails.


    All that said, I'd like ANet to update the overall mechanics so that there was better flexibility. If you're in a 10-person squad or 5-person party, why not be able to send food to everyone? If you're friends with someone for 6 months, why have any limits?
    I'm sure there are development reasons why we don't have such features, a cost-benefit analysis that makes it too costly. But, of course, that doesn't stop me wishing it were so.

    The point on the gold seller thing was the spammers who send their spam by mails rather than /map, /say, or /whisper in chat. The spammer isn't on my friend list, nor am I on his (because by reflex I reject weird friend requests that come out of nowhere).

    I do run into this from time to time.

    When in a Squad/Party, I would like to see them check that status and then increase the limit. I too have needed to share foods/items with party/squad members and after 2-3 emails gotten the suppression message. This often delays us, as some times it takes almost 20 mins to get 4 emails to go out.

    Also, every year at Wintersday, my mesmer Santa Odin, hangs out in some of the major locales and hands out Wintersday Gifts to random people who stop by and say "Hi" or greet myself or others with a "Happy Wintersday", etc. I also host a Wintersday Theme Night in WvW for my home server (Henge of Denravi) and hand out Wintersday gifts to all those who attend and join our Theme Night Squad. These situation also tend to result in the suppression message.

    So my suggestion is: Check the "party/squad/friend list" status, and up the limit in those cases. As far as public goes...at least give us 4 or 5 emails before you go suppressing...not start after 2.

    Its a QoL thing, so maybe a dev can work it in sometime soon. :)

    I think it needs to be fixed, but not necessarily by adding to the number allowed. Guild, party and squad chat should never be blocked. They can be policed by the people in them. Well, maybe party chat needs a little help. But, parties needs a lot of work anyhow. Starting with there always being a leader. Or, at least create a party-like grouping that has a leader.

    "Say" chat should have a significantly higher limit.

    "Map" chat is fine as is. But, there should be more ways to ban people than just being reported. Anytime someone (in map chat) uses "USD" or "US$" in a post, they should be flagged by the game for observation. There are probably other words to look for as well.

    I think upping the limit for people on mutual friends lists would be acceptable to me honestly.

    Twice an hour? A mail or two a week? That's not spamming and doesn't trigger neither current nor old spam filter. Gold sellers are still there and they will always be there. Unless Anet turns off chat entirely.

    I did specifically say I'd block each new bot before the whispers could get bad enough for the spam filter to kick in. Also I was talking on avg per day in general not worst case. IDK maybe you just have a higher tolerance for that kind of thing then most people. That's neither good nor bad but maybe something to consider perspective wise.

    The messaging system only flags the excessive messaging issue if you send multiple identical messages in a short time frame.
    You can send as many messages as you like as long as they are slightly differant.
    For example a common problem that arises from this issue is thanking people for helping in some way by sending ty.
    If you send multiple tys in a row the excessive messaging kicks in , but if you alternate what you send , eg ty , tnx , thanks, it wont kick in.
    It seems its to stop gold sellers from spamming identical messages over and over.

  • Dreamy Lu.3865Dreamy Lu.3865 Member ✭✭✭✭
    No, the system works fine how it is now

    I would like to understand how works the limit exactly. It is not clear to me, because experience seems different from one player to another.

    Me for example, I am mailing on a daily basis: for dyes, for food, to provide links, to let info message to friends who are not online and many other reasons. I was never blocked for excessive messaging on mails.
    The few times I got blocked, this was always at a chat entry, mainly in map one. And even that is rather rare, although I am a pretty active in chats all types.

    That's why I would really like to understand the criteria leading to the blocking. Anyone knows?

    I'm out of my mind, feel free to leave a message...

    Looks like blocking works much better than spam filter then. And it's not hurting legit players trying to enjoy the game, having hard time dealing with Anet restrictions.

    I didn't use mail but I got the Celestial Compass and spammed it to a friend as a whisper. It is an inside joke we do a lot and it's fun. But then I wanted to show it in the guild chat and it didn't work be cause of this anti spam kitten. It makes absolutely no sense; it is a different chat and I wanted to show it once. It didn't even work minutes later. I really don't get what this is supposed to do. Maybe they think people will harass others through different chats, but hey really: was this an issue?

    Yep, I was giving away a bunch of dyes lately and after sending few I was getting blocked for minutes. I never met a spammer in GW2 so I don't know if the restrictions should be as high.

    Yes, it was. This wouldn't exist without purpose.

  • Getting tired of that cooldown.
    I usually offer mini's on a daily basis is starter maps
    I get cooldowns after1, 2 or 3 mails, random
    Sometimes 10 minutes after 2 mails
    I have items attached, so it shouldnt count as "spam"

    I tested using different wordings in messages to my alt account, to no avail: "blong" oppression set in after 2 messages

    like I read above this should be easily be solved:

    raise limit to guild members ( not friends, because you can self appoint those, so it would leave open room for spam )
    raise limit for messages with an item included
    raise limit per character slot ( very few bots have 36 or so character slots, my account has 70, so that would be a lot of work for a spambot maker )
    raise limit per achievement point level, a spam account doesnt have over 4k AP

    Remember like people said they sometimes hand out food, dyes, minis, gear to people by using mail, blocking after 1,2 or 3 sends is unwanted and NOT needed to block mass spam.

    What he’s saying was an absolute fact at one point. In the first couple of years of this game gold spammers were are regular thing. Not just daily but several times a day. This is not anecdotal coming from me. This is first hand experience.

    Yea im sorry but i remember back in the first 2 years the amount of whispers that i got, the mail that i got and the map chat that i saw being literally flooded with gold sellers, getting 6 or more pieces of mail at a time from gold bots was annoying as hell, and id rather not have that happen again.

    This is one of the biggest quality of life additions i'd love to see and add to that how many you can keep in your mail box.

    I take screenshots of the email. Which turns out to be better (for me) since I don't have to boot up the game to read them.


    FYI regarding the amount of email: when the game launched, we used to be able to keep more email. It hurt performance (on the player's PC, with the chat/social servers, and with the game overall). As part of the bugfixes during the game's early period, the amount of mail we could keep was reduced and hasn't been revisited since.

    That's ridiculous. You should be able to reply to as many mails as you want.

    ive been there also so i understand when i hear nothing back and i still try to thank them at least but understand when they dont respond back.

    A little addition: I have several accounts. Yesterday I was logging through them for daily crafting and couldn't send a mail on a freshly logged in account. The suppression is therefore not even just account based, but IP based...

    The best is when you're trying to set up a raid group and get suppressed for changing your LFG description. Just the best. =)

    I want to appologize to everyone that I did annoy with saying (not map-chat, just saying) "Here is the hidden chest". I know that this is just a bad thing to say and I see them sometimes 10 minutes searching with it, while all my message got suppressed because of me spamming this message two times.

    I'm very sorry that I wanted to help someone.

    Public messages should remain as restricted. Guild leaders and delegates should be able to send a mass mail alround the guild. Mutual friends should also be able to send mails unrestricted.

    I dont care much for emails, but helping out the daily in map by pointing waypoints is also consodired spamming. kitten Anet.

    I want to see the limit removed when sending / receiving mail from people on a mutual friends list. That is, I'm on Somedude's friends list, and he's on mine. This still allows those who end up friending an idiot who thinks it's fun to spam to just remove them and be done with it, but not be limited to 2 emails a minute in cases where it functions as little more than an annoyance. Leaving a 10 second window between emails would be ok to stem any botted power spamming that could cause issues with the mail system, but outside that I see no reason those on a mutual friends list should be "protected" from one another.

    I'd have to say "no" for normal emails. On the other hand, there should be a possibility to send more emails to friends (not your friends, but to people that have you added as a friend). Same for in-guild messaging (with an added option for mailing the whole guild - maybe restricted to some guild rank, though).

    The whole point of a social game is to play with the people you want to play with, not be forced to play with the people you don't.

    It's ridiculous how quickly messages get suppressed, be it chat or mail. I understand the intention behind it, but for Commanders or when you want to reply to several people within a minute, it does pose a problem.

    I believe that if you are mutually-friended (i.e., I added you and you added me) then we should be permitted to send unlimited mail back and forth (retain the gold limit for anti-RMT purposes).

  • other, i explain it in the comment

    Yes it should be possible in a perfect world, but no, it is a bad idea as it is going to be misused by those who forced anet to have this system in place.
