About time with the alliance chat open to all. --Jamie 09:40, 3 June 2006 (CDT)

Alliance Chat Open to All Members?![edit source]

Is anyone else concerned about this? I may have a bit of say in my own guild, and even amongst my alliance member guilds, but I so don't want to have to deal with the eventuality of having a ten guild alliance where everyone can use alliance chat. I just see way too many problems in the future with this. For example, what happens when people start using it for trades? Or the never ending noob questions. It's just my opinion that the alliance chat is there to aid guild leaders and officers in whatever endeavor they happen to be putting together with their alliance members. All other chat is taken care of already.--Xis10al 15:32, 3 June 2006 (CDT)

I think it's a great idea. If you don't like "never ending noob questions," or people start doing trade chats...ask for the person to be kicked or have the guild in question removed from the alliance. I'm happy that I'm finally able to get a group together from more than just my guildies. I'm happy that I'm able to get a decent price check. I'm happy that I can have actual conversations with people from all over. It's building a better community is what it's doing. - Jack Ranger 15:49, 3 June 2006 (CDT)
I really like the change. Having read but not write access to a channel is terrible (I would be okay with the idea of a leader-only channel that only officers could write to or view for easy planning, but this is based on experience with another game, which had rather large guilds and needed a lot more organization since you had to decide what to build, respond to constant incursions, and often had to kick leechers from your guild). — 130.58 (talk) (17:24, 3 June 2006 (CDT))
I feel this change was in the right direction, but still a miss. What it should be is the leader of the alliance should decide the alliance chat privileges. In my guild, the alliance chat is mainly used for forming groups for HA, PvE, whatever. However, there are sometimes I want to say, just shut up already ("never ending noob questions"). In retrospect, a.net probably opened the alliance chat because people were complaining on forums (gw guru comes to mind). Basically, they solved one problem and created another.--8765 17:29, 3 June 2006 (CDT)
It's an atrocious idea. It's already filled with the typical gloating and scamming that goes on in most guild chats. Some guilds enforce tighter rules than others. In our guild, we don't allow begging, we don't allow spamming of buy/sell offers and so forth. Other guilds don't. One guild that we had in our alliance but got rid of had almost all their members as officers. The sheer number of people spamming Alliance chat was annoying.
The side-effect is people turn off Alliance chat. And then Faction farming group sare not organized. Just a shame. --Karlos 23:13, 3 June 2006 (CDT)

i think its good. it provides everyone a good knowlage base for anything and it can help for selling and buying things as well
