    What is your suggestion?: Make the /slot cooldown apply to an entire island.

    How would the suggestion make the server better?: Prevents players from bypassing the 24 hour cooldown on /slot. Players are currently using alts to reclaim the slot, as well as having fellow island members buy the slot. You're able to keep a slot forever, especially with an irregular timezone.

    Entire island wouldn’t work, alts can be on different island.

    So ip restricting like /dailybonus?

    (I know it advertises whoever bought the slot’s island but people can just type /is warp [name] ) Hence just restricting it to island wouldn’t work... can’t see how you can really prevent people finding loopholes. People using alts, on different islands, rotating between island members can bypass both ip and island restriction.

    My initial post included an IP cooldown before I removed it. There's no way to prevent loopholes entirely, but an Island cooldown + an IP cooldown is a good start. Maybe a rule could be implemented where you can only advertise your own island with /slot.

    +1 islands should have a cooldown so other islands are able to buy the slots

    How about a way to make it to where you can only advertise your own Island by making a gui where you can only say your own islands name? Idk how it would be made, but it could work.

    Honestly would be too much work for the devs tbh. making a rule against alts on /slot and limiting it to once per island/ip would work fine imo

    It would be almost impossible to enforce, players just wont listen

    If people only use /slots for a few things like profit shops, might be possible to add preselected messages?

    +1 doable, but difficult to implement, you could use an island cool down but alts are sometimes difficult to identify, there’s always a way around, invite an alt to your island, having that account but /slot, and then they return to an alt island or become a trusted member again, IP’s wouldn’t change anything for islands with multiple island members, and incorporating both an IP limiter and a island limited would be too restrictive. It’s possible, but unlikely.
