Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Abusing the spam-reporting API will get it protected. [1]
  • Complaining about a player squelches further communication from the target's account for the rest of the session. [2]
  • lineID can also be obtained from the player link. E.g. local lineID = strmatch(link, ("|Hplayer:[^:]*:(%d+):.*|h") - useful if using OnHyperlinkClick, OnHyperlinkEnter, or OnHyperlinkLeave.
