This. An abundance of dull chatter pushes important chat out of the way.

Xfire is what you should be using to communicate directly with friends. In regards to the in-game chat, keep your mouth shut unless it's important.

Thumbs down Re: Chat in Server

People who use all chat really frustrate me when its useless crap, honestly, it disracts me so much. I find i am often looking at chat for intel and then see a load of useless crap there.

It especially frustrates me when im in a vehicle such as an APC or tank as i am looking for my teams intel on enemy hot spots and where to avoid and i end up reading a load of trash from some people acting like 12 yr olds

"STFU we killed over 9000 of you"

Administrate a server for thousands of hours and you will see why examples from above raise server owners temperature.

Idiotic taunting, griefing, lolling, whining about next map etc dont belong to the all chat. Important & urgent server related issues belong there.

The chat is not distracting for me, it's annoying most of the time.

At our Brazilian server [Click 21] exist chat rules...
ALL Chat only for game problems, sometimes "FAIL"...

Well, if you think this is a problem, come on down to the CIA server,

We allow you to say anything to any of our members, and you can say anything to other players, within reason.

Our server is where you DO have 1st amendment rights, but you cannot destroy PR gameplay for others.

If your aim is spam and not conversation, or something simply unsportsmanlike, then you can expect a boot from our server.

I expect this admin behavior from every American server I use, so I was sure to make this intertwined with our number one rule: DO NOT DISRUPT GAMEPLAY.

If you find it does disrupt it, let us, that admins, know and we'll do our best to take care of it.

Gameplay and Freedom Above All Else on our servers

It goes like this:

My screen, 1 second ago:

Teammate #1: Enemy LAV E3kp5 near the fence(iirc...).

My screen, 1 second later:

IdiotTeammate #1: OMG, LAG!!!
IdiotOtherteamguy #1: ROFL, you rolled over the BRDM...
IdiotOtherteamguy #2: you guys fail.
IdiotTeammate #1: It was LAG, not my fault.
Me(teamchat): Where was the enemy LAV again?

Damn those spammers.

What bothers me is the lines lenght + the place where they are.

Sometimes I have 3 lines crossing my screen, I'd like to see them moved to the bottom...

[R-DEV]OkitaMakoto:"Cheers, you're the man, Okita"
[R-DEV]Rhino:"I in fact got kicked from a server for tking."
Hitperson:"well done, treasure it forever."
[R-DEV]Adriaan:"Damned classy Roma, if I may say so."
[R-DEV]Chuc:"Pro man, pro."
(yes, it was about me)
[R-MOD]BloodBane611:"Romagnolo, you definitely deserve a LOL award for that."

Taunting, discussing anything not directly relevant to the game in team or all chat is unnecessary and stupid in some cases, at least on a somewhat filled up/full server.

I don't like it. As far as I'm concerned, it shouldn't even be visible per default.

I try, and often fail, to follow a simple rule.
Friends don't let friends type and fight.

Occasional greetings and quips are perfectly fine by me. It's the constant barrage of messages erasing all the important info that isn't good. I've had to type the same message several times until it stuck on the screen where people could see it.

This can stretch into regular VoIP traffic. Many people, including myself, have asked the rest of the squad to clear the comm channels just because there was no way to hear what was going on in the area. I don't have any problems with VoIP chatter -- except when the enemy kills me because I couldn't hear them having a wild party on the other side of the wall. Sometimes I have to leave the squad so I can hear what the enemy is doing.
