Anti Chat Flood

About this module

The Intelligent Anti Chat Flood module prevents or intelligently modifies the use of excessive repeated characters and very long "words" without interfering with players using 'expressive' chat.

To bypass this module, op or the permission: "chatsentry.antichatflood.bypass" is required.

Config guide

You can access the below settings in the anti-chat-flood.yml file within the modules folder of the plugin's root folder.

Config excerpts taken from v3.6.0 and may not be completely up-to-date with the latest changes. To see the most up-to-date file, see below:



The maximum times the same character can be repeated consecutively. Applies to all characters not on the custom limit list below this option.

If using modify-message, this is not the exact amount of characters that will show up in chat (there will probably be a few less, depending on the circumstance).

repeated-character-limit: 12


Since some characters take up less space (like "!") you can optionally allow them to be repeated additional times to reduce interferences with people being extra expressive in chat who aren't attempting to flood it


Set to "custom-limits: []" to have no custom limits

Please note that this list is case sensitive

  - "!;;30"
  - "?;;12"
  - ".;;35"
  - "A;;12"


Maximum character length of words (ignores custom limit chars)

max-word-length: 32

Should web links longer than the maximum "word" length limit be ignored?

ignore-long-links: true


When set to true, the detected message will be intelligently modified instead of blocked entirely . The amount of repeated chars to cut off is determined by a division of the initial limit

Example: "Heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy" -> becomes -> "Heyyyyy"

modify-message: true


Only applies if modify-message is true. When a message is modified, should the blocked message below be sent as well?

send-block-message-when-modified: true


The below list will only work if "process-commands" is true in config.yml

The below list is which commands the module will apply to. It's recommended to only set these to your private messaging commands.

Set the list to "affected-commands: []" to apply the module to ALL commands (highly not recommended!)

Make sure to only include base commands; don't add any command arguments. (spaces)

  - "/tell"
  - "/t"
  - "/msg"
  - "/w"
  - "/r"
  - "/whisper"
  - "/w"
  - "/pm"
