    Hello!

    I have noticed in my short time at imdeity that you get a lot of notifications about voting, updates, and how some commands do not work in this world. Me, being the butt-head I am, refuses to vote for servers that spam me every ten minutes in game *le guesstimation*. I know that there are a few others like myself, that would be very willing donate to stop such messages from appearing in their chat. I believe that adding this to an existing donator/sponsor rank or even just making a new, cheaper rank would be extremely helpful. If the donators feel the need to see these messages (you all are excellent coders I'm sure) can quickly make a code to toggle these broadcasts.

    Example:
    /broadcast on/off


    Have a wonderful evening!
    ~Axel

    This could make it through, but I'm not sure if there are "few others", enough that don't want the messages. I actually like them :3. Keeps me company. Makes me feel like there's someone actually there... *forever alone*

    I believe that if you swallow your pride and just vote, the messages go away.

    As you can see it isn't just the voting messages. ^-^ There are many other messages I would like to block out such as the events and all of the other messages I get whilst mining. This is merely a simple solution to my problem and perhaps many others. It is just a suggestion forum after all. In addition to the message informing me I'm in local chat. I can see how this one is useful, but after being here for two months.. It gets old :3

    This would actually work for everyone, we just put the command in the wiki and only the people that are experienced enough to know that the wiki has answers will find out about it;).

    Less. But that's the only place a command would go to anyway.

    Huh? I see no such command in the wiki...and I read it daily with my breakfast...kind of like the newspaper. :p
    (Unless this was all just a joke, in which case there is yoke dripping down my face.)

    There is no command like that. Im just saying that if the idea would be used we should just put the command in the wiki.

    Oh oh oh! I misread what you put somehow. I read over it again now and it makes perfect sense.

    I got really mad at chat some 3 months ago - http://imdeity.com/threads/in-game-chat-is-messy.10258/ - improvements have been done since that time, we dont see player death messages anymore and there were some color tweaks too. So i hope some kind of [announcements] channel for event signups or lottery will be set in future and i will be able to switch it off.

    I wish that this would change. If the current community is dedicated enough they will still vote :).

    I think things like lottery notifications should be modified so I only get the notification once every 4 times people buy a ticket. One person buys a ticket, then a chain reaction occurs where 10 people end up buying tickets. I do like an occasional ticket notification tho. Or else I would always forget to get my tickets.

    I honestly think that these messages should be leave-able by everyone. tough it doesn't bother me, just helps me ;). (Excluding the lottery)

    I think I pointed out on another thread that it should be possible for the lottery messages to do what the Spleef messages now do: group themselves together into a message such as

    [Lottery] insertnamehere and x other people just bought (aggregate total of) tickets!

    ...Just a thought.
