Flag-wide chatmode
I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I think that a flag-wide chatmode would help the organization of private flag business amongst the royalty.

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
I propose a crew broadcast channel that allows all royalty, captains, and maybe first mates to send broadcasts to all flag members. Please DO NOT make it a mega crew talk. =P

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
I personally would like to see both implemented.

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Captains, first mates and royalty would make it mega crew talk, especially since there is no end to any of those positions within a flag . . . you could make 10 crews of 10 first mates each.

Royalty-only, perhaps, but it can wait. Being able to post news and issues should be enough for most purposes.

Flag chat
We are antsy about doing a flag-wide chat channel as it would indeed be a fiasco of noise.

We will do Flag broadcast for Titles/Royalty at some point, as that'd be handy.

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Would it be possible to extend the flag broadcast to Captains of crew? I am surprised its not there already.

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Can titlees use the broadcast? If not, they probably should be able.

Please, for the love of all that is holy, give us a way to mute chat channels before changing them!

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
This has been discussed before. Muting channels doesn't give people a proper indication of who is listening. You should just beat your crewmates/flagmates over the head if they're annoying you. Alternatively, have some fun and join in :D

Hmmm. What about titled members getting /fb? Might make people think a bit more about who they make titled.

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Titled and Captains access to /fb. I forgot that titled members don't have flag broadcast chat option.

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Right now, titlees don't have any real role or purpose in-game. So, as Diamondblade hinted, no much importance is put on titlees and positions aren't very strict. Sure, a flag broadcast option is a small thing, but at least it gives them some importance. (Also, I'm glad my guess was right!)

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Jack: I know some flags have clearly defined roles for titled members, but if your captains really do need a flag broadcast option, it IS possible to just title them if the only change were to give /fb to titled members, too.

Oh, and that reminds me: New colour for /royalty? I get tons of chat-booches from royals thinking it's a /foff.

I have an idea.. create an alt.. and a one man crew.. just for experimental purposes, mind, and join our flag, and then you can spend your entire day reading whisk requests, too!

It doesn't matter how many times I beat them over the head, or how many times those beatings are repeated by Thanos, people do not listen.

Sea battle + /fo + /crew == death.

Either give me a /mutefo, etc., feature.. or at least allow me to turn off chat when puzzling (but still log it like if I'm crowing I can read it, or if I exit a puzzle.)

This is an issue for /officer vs. /crew too. Same color = much chat booching.

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Silver Dawn are /fo fiends and never shutup. I am probably guilty myself, but instead of a mute button, we should just make it less appealing to type. If you HAD to type /flagofficer everytime and it didn't appear when you pressed up in the chat box, people wouldn't be having useless conversations. This won't happen, but it's my two cents on the issue.

You'd think with how snarky everyone in general has been getting over flag that certain people would get the HINT that it's freaking annoying as heck to hear ' May I have a whisk to Diamond, please? ' I suppose getting told to take Navy isn't enough of a hint. Eh?

Yes, a mute option for flag WOULD be nice. Even if it only lasted 10 minutes at a pop.

And oh yes, I've muted various flag members, it seems that muting only stays active for so long. Such a pity...

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Aye, Ironfisted has it right. Our officers are relentless on the /foff.

One solution would be to allow the easy creation of long-distance 'chat circles.' Generally, our /foff is abused when 4-5 people on different crews, often in different archis, want to have a conversation. You can't really tell 'em to knock it off, because there's not really another option. /foff can be used easily in puzzles, on ship, or on land. It's really convenient.

Personally, for the time or two that it's really goofed me up (like being unable to call targetting in sea battle), I think it's been more than worth it for promoting unity in the flag.

Re: Flag-wide chatmode
Throwing my 2 poe in:

/officer DEFINITELY needs a distinguishing trait other than "Crystallina officer chats". Usually when I'm saying something over /officer, I have a really good reason to do so, and it can be time-consuming to always append "<=== this is *Officer* chat! /o! yup yup." or something like that. Don't have any opinion on royalty versus /fo because I've never seen it. /fo is a similar color to tells, however.
