New Greeter Shortkey? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

As a greeter, I see a lot of Greenies asking about the different colour names, Would it be possible for a new Greeter shortkey explaining the white, yellow, green, blue and pink names? Please? =) Comments Welcome =)

I recommend a different shortkey for each color.

For instance:

faqwhitename --> "Pirates with white names are event characters. The oceanmasters gave them a white name to show that they run oceanwide events."

faqpinkname --> Pirates with pink names are greeters, here to help answer questions. Only green-named pirates can see the pink names.

faqgreenname --> Pirates with green names are new to the game. After playing for 15 hours, a pirate's name will turn yellow.

faqbluename --> Pirates with blue names are employees of Three Rings. Some are oceanmasters, the official moderators of the game, and others are developers.

One actually exists already, except it's rendered useless by the "transmogs must not be too long" rule.

I already use QM for a number of stuff, especially explaining how to make poe. It's just so much easier for me not to have to type out the same message over and over and over again.

Eh, it's confusing, and could probably be worded better, but it's somewhat fixed.

White named pirates with a single name (Minthe, Magog, etc) are players who run events.

White named pirates with 2 names separated by a space (Adjective Name) are bots or NPPs (Reliable Shaw, Smiling Aster, etc).
