I seem to recall reading some recent discussion where the general consensus was that a titled channel (especially as an option) would be a good thing. The beer is inhibiting my searching ability, though. Anyone got linkies?

I'm generally in favor of adding another commo channel for titleds, as long as we can get some better differentiation. It's alreasy to easy to mix up /fo and /r, and I'd hate to have /t confusing things more.

i think that a royalty/ titled channel would be great. at this point a title doesn't mean a whole lot despite the fact that a number of titled members are often approached by representatives of other flag when royals aren't on to discuss flag relations events and alliances. giving them at least access to flag broadcast would certainly be more practical, particularly for pillages and other flag events.

I think having a channel that contains BOTH titled and royalty members could be very beneficial. I know a lot of flags have forums and do a lot of discussing on them which include both royalty and titled members. But with the in game dynamic limiting it to just royalty, communication can be a bit clumsy. I mean if you are wanting to discuss something that includes your titled members, you either have to move to a boat, or do it over open fo channel. Neither one of which is entirely desirable. This has been an issue even for our medium sized flag. I would think for a larger flag, or one that has a good size number of royalty / titled members and even more officers, this would be even better.

I like the idea of giving Titled members the ability to /fbroadcast and perhaps even post Flag News as well.

Wow, a thread I posted in two years ago. Egads.

A related suggestion: Instead of implementing a "channel mute" (crew mute, royalty mute, etc) just have the option to split it out into its own tab. But very much do not get rid of the old system.

I for one forget that the titled members can not see what i am talking about in a Royal Channel. We have many titled members that want to be involved but i don't want all the flag officers in a chat not ment for them.

Would be nice if we could see something like this, make life a little easier.

as a titled member of my flag, I think it would be quite useful to have some kin dof channel that includes titled members with royalty. It woul dmake organization for things much easier. I also think have a "flag" chat would be desirable....we often run flag events and I know I forget not all of my crew.flag members see /fo chat

Flag chat would be terribly unwieldy for any flag of reasonable size. Since channels can't be muted, you don't want to force people to be in too many of them or chat in general becomes impossible to interpret.

However, I'm still trying to figure out what the point of titles is beyond a little vanity. Having a titled chat could be useful for discussing politics and the like.

There is none at this time. The only thing being a titled member gets you is a spot on the flag page and Lord/Lady on your Pirate page. At least, I haven't found any benefits yet.

Well, it allows you to give someone a nominal title while simultaneously witholding the ability to form policy.

Yeah, I could find a use for it.

Agreeing, it would be extremely handy to have this chat channel, instead of having a five minute discussion take three or four days on the forums for everyone to log in, reply etc.

A titled channel would make titles actually worth something, and make the title holders have a role, while less than that of the voting Royals, an important one beyond /fo.

I also think something like /allies during blockades would rock, but as Curule pointed out, that would be insane.

If some flags have a ton of silly titled people, having a titled/royalty chat would perhaps encourage them to choose their titled members more wisely, thereby making the tiltle "worth" something.

I agree, this is a good idea. It would be useful and practical in may different ways. Plus, we could use another colored chat.

Obviously, in a lot of flags the Titled spots are just a fancy name, but for those of us who actually use our Titled Members to fill a role in flag politics, this could be quite useful. (A Shared Royalty and Titled channel, not to replace any existing channels)

I'd also like to officially put in a request for a color change to /royalty .. It's pretty much identical to /flagofficer at this point in time, and a lot of my princesses and princes quite often see a conversation in /royalty and reply in /fo.

Yellow or something that hasn't been used yet. Or Green. Anything but more purple. :D

Aye, I agree. I would like titled to be useful somehow, and that seems a reasonable, and useful addition.

I agree as well. A channel to address both royals and titles would be very useful. In addition, I agree with the suggestion that titlees should be allowed to do flag broadcasts.

First time Poster. Please, be gentle :D


My crew was running a Frigate Pillage tonight, and besides fighting jobbers, communications can be difficult. Of course officers patrolled sections of the deck to spot lazy bums and any problems.

Because COs tend to delegate for you to watch certain aspects of the Duty roster, I would love to see a section chief chat ability.

Basically, my Captain is pillaging on a big ship. He names me Ship's Carpenter, or whatever wonderful piratey naval name they find. I then see only the Carps on the Duty roster, and I get a separate Carp channel. That way I can praise and lambaste without telling the entire vessel. Or maybe just a larger region talk. All those on below deck get a chat channel. Poop deck a channel, Forward deck a channel and Main deck a channel.

Don't get rid of vessel chat, but this would enhance officer control of large pillages, especially with jobbers.
