the global chat:
- i'd like to suggest changing the toggle commands to /onglobal and /offglobal, so that we don't have to type the whole command for chat. it saves time and typos to be able to quickly write "/gl <anything that doesn't fit in trade chat>", just as we'd write /tr, /ve, /e etc.
- will it be selectable from the bubble to the left of typing area?

flotilla:
- offering charting and damage control services to anyone who'd like to test out the new changes, in about 8h from now and similar times the following week.

These are sensible suggestions, however I want to try and discourage flippant use of this chat channel. Hopefully having to type the full command will be a small deterrent to people typing stuff like "/gl lol". We'll keep an eye on things though, and if that's not an issue after the release, a shortcut could be added a little later on.

good point. in that view, it suddenly seems like a tiny insufficient hurdle.

Don't most people use the up and down arrow keys for selecting chat anyway?

Didn't know that was even possible.
I switch between /crew, /o, and /tell so much, that it became much safer for me to type it in my conversation, rather than inappropriately booching

Simple solution for this would be to not have /global able to be selected that way. I think this applied to the old /greenie command back before it was removed. I could be wrong on that though, I hardly used it at all (and never used it after it became a contentious thing).
