How to prevent messages from being sent?

So, an overview of what’s happening is that when my game recently got endorsed, I seem to find a lot of scam botters constantly joining servers trying to advertise a scam site. I simply want to make it so I can prevent younger audiences from being exposed to scammers, I thought of kicking them when the exact scam message has been sent but it will still go through. How would I approach the messages from being sent?

You could go into the chat module and set some code words that would prevent the message from going through, then put the updated module into StarterPlayerScripts.

I am personally not aware of a way to remove messages from chat (I’m sure there is a way) but the easiest way to prevent this is making a captcha/human verification UI so that disables the chat core UI until the player/bot clicks a button.

To hide this (if you think players won’t like it) just hide the chat core UI until the player clicks the start button. Assuming you have a menu.

Hope this helps!



I’m pretty sure someone created a module just for this, you can customize it to your likings:


Can you go more in depth of this? I usually have a hard time understanding things.

3rdhoan123’s reply seems easy to understand. If you’re asking about mine, you can take a copy of the chat module and edit it to your liking. I’m not exactly sure where you would put the function to get rid of scam messages because I haven’t looked through it before. If you’re looking for an easier solution, look above as I said!
