Although I am not seeing how this stops bullying in any way which is what Fluffy’s OP reason for quitting was about and what we tried to help solve and overcome instead of leaving the game, but anyway.
I am trying to make sense of the need to make any chatroom the default room as this will not stop players chopping and changing between rooms to recruit.
Beginners mostly go to tge General chat to be recruited because the AR room mostly has bigger players requesting experienced active members so beginners tend to feel worthless there and thus go to the general chatroom.
Placing every single recruiter and those looking for alliances into 1 single room will only create much more kaoos in that room as each already has about 100/1 recruiters per minute at times.
And how do you stop recruiters or members from using the general chat for those purposes to begin with, it’s just not possible unless there is a permanent mod there monitoring it all.
Another solution to this would be a option panel before entering the chatroom which offers 3 buttons
ENTER AS A!
- Alliance Recruiter
- Looking for an Alliance
- General chat
Once chosen none of the messages sent by any other one of the unchoosen options will be seen in that chatroom
This means recruiters (option 1) only see notes from those that enter as option 2 and not options 1 and 3, and general chat would see neither option 1 or 2 messages and so on.
- reduce message speeds
- remove trolling
I currently quite often chat in the over 20 level experience chatroom and recruiters that try to recruit there are instantly blocked, the room is total managable and controlled by it’s users using the block option. I never see an issue there.
I feel this would create a far better chatting experience for everyone. I Have also already suggested this option to SG months ago.
As for bullying well the only way is to have a permanent mod reading every chat as it comes in, (I mean this as politely as possible) but good luck with getting SG to pay workers on 24/7 shifts to do that.
Hope this helps
