Hi,

So I recently discovered filters for Nightbot, I understood how to use all the filters besides the repetition filter. I don’t understand what the % is supposed to do. Thanks.

Hey @j0nathan!

From the documentation:

This is the minimum percentage of repetitions posted before Nightbot will punish the user for spamming. The default limit is 45% but can be adjusted as needed.

Assuming we’re still at the default repetition percentage: 45%

This means that if I say:

```
The blue cat
```

And then

```
The red cat
```

It’ll look at the percentage of repetition, in my case, 2/3 words are the same, so that’s 66% of repetition, which means my second message will be timed out.

If however I was to say as a second message

```
The blue cat is sleeping on the yellow car
```

I have 3/9 words that are the same, so the repetition percentage is only 33%, therefore my message will go trough.

Oh, Thanks for explaining, it makes much more sense now
