Remove #class_helps

#ff_help_scout, ff_help_sniper, etc. They're just used to grief now, and if anyone really needs help such as "scouts are used for offense with their quick speed and blah blah", anybody else can just tell them.

Why not just put them in the UI, and they only show up when you mouse over the classes in the class selection screen ?

I agree these message should be removed or at least made so that they are private to the user invoking the #ff_help_* command. Seen several occasions where people thought it was funny to spam the #ff_help_* command in the chat making it impossible for others to play.

I think at least it should be impossible to send something like this to the chat: "#ff_help_medic #ff_help_medic #ff_help_medic #ff_help_medic #ff_help_medic #ff_help_medic #ff_help_medic #ff_help_medic" which would cause a huge chat message to appear filling nearly one quarter of the screen on 1920x1080 :(

I think, not 100% sure but I think there is a line in the server.cfg that allows you to control how much text is allowed to be spewed forth from one individual.

Might be, but yet still I believe that in converting the #ff_help* command should only be converted to the help text ones, instead of infinitively within one line. This would help a lot already. Next to that I don't see any real use to having this feature being publicly available anyway. As mentioned, I'd prefer to have the text visible to the person invoking the help only, rather then sending it to everyone on a server.

I'm pretty sure the #FF_HELP_CLASS commands are client-side when you see them in normal chat. If you say #FF_HELP_MEDIC 3 times - the server only registers that as 44 characters (for medic, the seemingly most spammed one), but people see a few hundred popping up on their screen.

And it should be removed by default, instead of "oh, then change it if you don't like it".
