More group chat modes [was: Senior Officer Chat] Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Cleaver-

Is there any chance you could write in that /so equates senior officer chat? This would be quite handy, especially when senior officers and captains are talking about other officer's stats and such, and I can't see it being that hard to implement. Just an idea for the release if you have time.

How about /monarch chat, so that an even smaller group can talk to itself, without having to bother with all the clicking it takes to be in one place for a conversation?

I support this feature, as all the info going across /fo may become very spammy for someone who doesn't really need to know strategies and stuff, and how may be trying to have a conversation

Question... would this be a flag SO (/fso) or crew SO (/so) chat? Would you rather one, the other, or both?

A few more humble requests, if I may:
  • ]A /carp channel, so I can chat with all the Carpenters in my crew (we like to make fun of the Sailors. So no /Sail channel, if you please).
  • ]And a /captain channel, so I can talk to myself in peace.
  • ]And a /harbor channel, that could work like /shout except it would be for all the boats in the same port as me.
  • ]And a /bbptos channel, so I can taunt the Booching Boocher Piloting The Other Ship in battles.
  • ]And a /soiftmfiaw channel, so I can talk to Senior Officers In Flags That My Flag Is Allied With.[/list:u:044b429ffc]And could you please make all the new channels context-sensitive, so that I can cut down on my channel-booching? (My standing in Chat is currently Distinguished in my archipelago.)

Hey carp channel is a pretty neat idea!

How about a gun request channel (/gr) for greenies to directly speak to their captain in regards to whether or not they may be allowed to gun.

come on guys, now your getting silly.

The only new chat channel we need is /mutany. It would allow all people on a vessel to talk EXCEPT the commanding officer.

So after a sea battle that the CO booched and allowed a brigand to shoot you full of holes, the rest of the crew could make fun of the naver behind his back. And send complaints to other senior officers of the controlling crew. I would love to say "Damn, that guy sucks at battle nav, get someone to replace him or I am finding myself a new job mates", or "Did you see that guy ram the rocks 3 times in a row, what an idiot", or even "Can someone plank the captain, his hat is bothering me?"

I am 100% completely serious about wanting /so. There is a large jump in what an Officer needs to hear and what a SO needs to hear.

Theres a large jump in what people wearing my hat need to know and people not wearing the same hat as me need to know!

Most of it is how stupid the people without the hat are.
That and generally complementing each others hats.

I just really need /mute_russel. And it should be enabled by default for green accounts.

Then having a meeting.

There are already so many chat boochs, why add more confusion? That's all I will say on this matter.

It would be nice if you could /tell a comma-seperated list of people. Even more easy would be list-enabling the /who command (to see what members of an opposing OCL team are on, for instance).

And of course /game and /team for in brawls and drinking games.

I guess the list of possible usefull chat channels is quite long, and the Ringers have to draw the line somewhere.

Please understand that this idea having worked very well since the beginning of Midnight is in no way telling you that you should do it my way . . . we have a "crew" for meetings and colonization stuff, with very few members and a few Big Ships. When we need to meet, it's by invitation only, so we cannot be interrupted or overheard. The supplies stored thereon are also safe from inadvertent selling, the ship safe from inadvertent moving.
