As the server is getting more popular during summertime, I've noticed the chat is getting increasingly fast - this becomes a nuisance when trying to communicate, or viewing warden commands (even with /wardenLog it's difficult to view without paging).

I'd like to suggest a feature which allows you to either disable regular chat (maybe showing just warden commands, PMs, replies or guard text), or even a 'slowmode' so people can only send messages every 2 seconds or so.
That said, the latter could be frustrating especially if a continuous explanation was needed.

Obviously it wouldn't be ideal, but I feel having the ability to disable regular prison chat would make it much easier to focus on more important warden commands, messages, direct messages and, for staff, reports and chat.

If these commands could be chosen by the player themselves, then

Slow-mode would obviously be restricted to higher ranks, but ideally the players themselves could choose which messages they see and don't see.

Not just warden messages; I find other chats (like teamchat when guard, staff chat, ??etc??) hard to follow.
That said, I think I must have been tired or off-focus when I considered this as I've been fine tracking the chat recently.

I feel like this will give excuses for "I didn't see the chat because I was in a different selection mode" and I'm sure no one wants to deal with that

I didn't mean for it to block anything important, at most regulator Prisoner chat.

I agree occasionally when there are lots of players online the chat is pretty fast, but it doesn't happen enough to need something like this. I might look into adding an option to separate the warden chat from normal chat with the jailbreak client if there is interest for that. I could put it on the right or something.
