Option To Disable Auto-Switching Ahoy! Tab Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Add an option to disable auto-switching to the Ahoy! tab when a notification is present.

This weekend there have been a bunch of competitions and these competitions force-switch the currently selected UI tab to the Ahoy! tab.

I'd like an option in the settings that disabled this (ideally retaining the flashing notification), as the switch can be distracting, and sometimes annoying.

As small as it is, the auto-switching to the 'Ahoy!' tab for competitions annoys me to no end!

I think the annoying thing is during comps you dismiss the pop up cause you don't want to play then it comes back when it starts q.q

This. Personally I'm fine with being pulled over. It's predominantly a notification tab after all, akin to how notifications pop up on your mobile.

But coming back after you've only recently dismissed it. Grr.

I've complained about this since comps came out. It is VERY annoying while doing trade runs. You know you are about to get a spawn so you hover your mouse over the "turn around" button, only to have a stupid comp come up and you have to scramble.

I will say, for me, auto-switching to Ahoy tab for TH when gunning on back wall SMH is also quite annoying. An option to shut off the auto-switch would be something I would love.

Large tournaments, like a Swordfighting Coloured Familiar tournament, for example, don't pop up on your Ahoy! tab. It doesn't really make sense why a competition for rigging and weaving with a prize of a pie and a blue grey chroma pops up on my Ahoy! tab twice.

The idea could be considered to just advertise competitions like you would advertise any on-land tournament.

Yes, exactly. Landlubbin' tournaments are broadcast over the chat interface. It makes a lot of sense to broadcast competitions in the same way. However, we would need to address access for joining. Most mates do not have a tournament board aboard their ships, and tournaments are played at sea. The "Ahoy!" tab provides a convenient button for anyone to join. So we need to think about how that access could still be provided without the nagging and focus-stealing.

If the events are broadcast in the same way a tournament is, perhaps it could still appear in the Ahoy! tab too - it just doesn't have the auto-switch anymore as pirates are now notified of its presence by chat.

If things like orders being completed and "you've been playing for too long" messages were also sent as a chat message rather than an Ahoy! tab pop-up, everyone would be happy.

I am all for the ability to shut off notifications, that said I do like the tourney notifications in the ahoy tab.

We don't see them in KHing so I would be for a broadcast message then I can chose to go to the ahoy tab and look at it.

Who would have ever thought there would be a more worthless familiar then the Krackling's? But now we have owls that are farm raised.

Agreed with everything except maybe the "you've been playing for too long" one. That's arguably meant to be disruptive

not that it matters really. no one cares about those messages

Put it in the "Ahoy!" tab without auto-moving to the "Ahoy!" tab, if that's possible.
