General Channel

Hi,

At the moment you guys only have 2 channels that can be seen no matter what zone your in (DF or NF or Classic or SI) and thats /LFG and /Advice, and as it stands we cant have general conversation in here without getting in trouble or told to make a chat group... the thing is we dont want to make a chat group, we just want to have a general channel we can talk off topic stuff without getting in trouble! What are the chances of getting something like this implemented?

Regards
Cotea

Re: General Channel

Wait your to god dam lazy to make a bg/cg channel for your off topic conversation but you want the admins to make a channel for you to be able to use for off topic conversation because your to lazy to make your own bg/cg. Get bent and leave the admins to something more important on the server

Re: General Channel

Wont do it for "reasons". Yet need to moderate advice chat 24/7 because general conversations happen in it anyway all day every day.

Maybe looking at time wasted inefficiencies and analyzing or reevaluating if a solution is working as intended is a cultural difference?

To me its just such an odd thing to have a stern stance and waste so much time caring about. But again maybe its a cultural difference since I have a hard time relating to wasting so much energy on trivial, inconsequential things.

Re: General Channel

A general channel means less topical discernment, which means more moderation, which means GMs actually doing less to monitor player actions and deal with appeals.

LFG and ADV are easy to moderate, you see them being spammed and say to stop.

General chat means you need to constantly read it in all three realms and make sure you don't have some immature idiot spamming offensive shit because they're oh so edgy.

say hypothetically they did get a chat group going for off topic chat and it became popular enough to be an ongoing thing. Anytime lead changes there is potential for shenanigans to occur- supposing it somehow does not change hands it remains subject to the whims of whoever leads it

The interest in a general chat shows itself every time Advice gets rebuked

Why does it need to be moderated at all? If it’s a general chat, open for any discussion whatsoever, couldn’t they be mostly hands off with it? If someone comes in screaming racial slurs, we’ll report them, same as we would in /region or wherever else. If people don’t want to listen to the random conversation, they can easily have it filtered.

I just don’t see why people get so up in arms every time the idea is brought up.
