It's called "spam prevention". Just wait the minute if you urgently need to /np it again for whatever reason.

That is more an issue, indeed.

I call it "bad spam prevention".
Also: You dont get what the issue is!
I don't want to /np the map to the same guy twice, that would be nonsensical; I want to give the map to two different people.
That is a easy change with no, or unnoticeable impact on the ammount of spam that comes from /np.

I agree with Hadis.

So it shouldn't be limited to the beatmap but the channel? Then this sounds better. Before I forget it I honestly would really consider to have a lower duration when you can /np again BUT to have it limited to one /np.

Example: If I do /np a beatmap, I've got to wait 45 seconds to /np anything again.

They were cases when some randomly /np shittons of maps which is more than annoying.

Didn't even know there were restrictions :/

Almost. I think it would be better not to change anything about the limitation in public channels.

If that happened in a public channel, see above; If that happened in a private chat between 2 people, you can just block the spamming person.

The only issue I have is when I'm trying to link multiple sets of the same song to people. It'd be nice if it was based on SetID. At least through in-game messages to people.

Oh man if the restriction is lifted/duration to /np is shorter than it'll be wayyy easier to give a set of maps to friends instead of inviting them to a multi-player game JUST to download those set of maps.

Wait? The restriction actually was set into Private Messages also? Whats the point of even doing that...

If someone is spamming /np in private messages, isn't that what Bancho is for? To stop said user from spamming in general. Even the other user can just report and block him.

Though for public channels in general, I rather we keep the restriction in general. Sorry to users, though it really do prevent spam in general, even though it quite annoying when /np two songs with the same Artsit ID/SongID.

It's only a problem when I send a /np to Tillerino (or some friend) and then I want to send it to a(nother) friend but cant
