Improvement to chat system and Social tab

Postby Pft » Thu Apr 09, 2015 4:32 am

So it was helpful recently we got an option to turn off pms from non friends. However there is draw backs to this. For example I doubt anyone has all their guild members added so this means some can't speak to you. This is bad for me since I am a guild leader. Alot of guildies are on my FL but it limits me to a few outside the guild so can talk to me. I have more people i speak to often but I can't have them all on list and I don't want to block their pms.

So what I am suggesting is that the friends and guild members can pm while the option is on. An improvement to the guild tab also to let you know when a guildie logs in. So a friend logs in a green box appear. For guildes this can be a blue box. Similar to how it says when a guildie is in the same area.

Now I know this was suggested before but this is something needed. The whole chat system now is not too great. The boxes block a good portion of screen and the guild chat well no one I know uses it. We have a text box at the bottom of page that is great it doesn't get in way. So have tabs on the chat box for pms and guild chat. These can light up when you get a new message and for the guild chat this should put people into it when they enter guild. It's annoying to have to open something to go into the chat and also we will forget to do it. So have people in this automatically can be useful and it can help other guild members know each other a bit more and easier to get a message across to everyone.

It would also be nice if when you open guild tab that messages from before you logged in were still there. So people can scroll through it and check what was said.

The current limit is 4 lines of text for the box then it will bump up. This is pathetic make an expandable box. You can drag it up to increase the line and see more of a discussion on the screen and then collapse it when your done. It is incredibly time consuming to screenshot text in this box. So it can help with reports if a guy was scamming or abusive or whatever it is likely a few screenshot will be needed to capture it all. Often people will miss out some part of text to shorten it down and stuff can be taken out of context also.

One last thing. I have issue with some people not able to view pms sent by me and visa versa which makes it incredibly difficult and it makes it seems like your ignoring them. It sucks to have to track people in game just to speak instead of the pm.

I would very much like any other ideas to help improve this. It's long outdated and anyone who is social daily needs a better way to be.

Agreed on all points, the current system was probably fine when there were only a hundred players, now there's well over a thousand.

a good amount of these have already been suggested, one of them was even suggested by me but all of them in one post will be more likely to be put into the game. I support everything said here. This is a much needed improvement

Support. I cannot send pms to some people and I don't receive from some. The problem is bigger when these peeps are guildmates.

Good suggestion, I still have this on my to-do list. Hopefully I can get to it sometime within a month. It's just a matter of getting some other things done first and how I want to prioritize it amongst some other improvements.
