    Does Seige want to come together and pick the General-Global chat channel for our day to day trading and what not?

    Can come in handy when dealing with players that dont use ICQ. We can all agree to use a particular chat system so we can always be in contact!!

    As long as people don't flood it with smack I think it'll be pretty handy. Already had an order and filled it on my vendor :)

    It just listening in the hour or so i have been home, its being flooded with junk. Not so much smack talk, but vent/alliance/guild chat type stuff (i know some are not in same guild etc), but be tough for true day to day trade etc, with all other chat. But worth a try

    I think people are in a bunch of different channels. Maybe the "trammel" etc ones change if you change facets?

    There's been a few of us in Help atm.

    Maybe we should use the General-Global channel, if it is, in fact, global. Otherwise maybe Help or Trade.

    Thats what I'm saying. Just stick to one channel...Then we will be able to get ahold of anyone whenever

    Freesly's idea is that we stick to one channel so anyone that wants to use it knows which channel to go to. Rather than being all splintered over how ever many channels there may end up being.

    I would suggest Help, if it's global. Newbies may pop in there too so we can kill errr help them :)

    I believe it should work very well with one channel, back in the days when we was alot more players on Siege we was using IRC and it was a great help.
    Sure all will have to try to act nice and not ruin it for others.

    Could be cool if we someday get a "tell" options too, the code is already in the client, was used of gm's and counsellors, only problem is, you had to target the char or the chars text first as we do not have access to the unique char names/numbers all chars do have.

    Like I said in the Help chat :) I think tell works since someone sent my crafter a tell a week or so ago. No idea how it works though. I think it used to work in KR.

    I created a "siege" channel this morning, not really knowing how this whole global chat thing works. Was that a bad idea?

    Any chat you create is deleted when you log off.

    Thank you ! I see the Siege channel option. Other than that I have no fricken idea 'how to' chat...nor do I see anyone chatting. :) Course it is 7 am central.

    But I am glad ya made a 'proper' option...I seen Siege chat room channel, and I hit that one right off the bat. :)

    use the comma key to initiate the function...its just like guild chat or party chat. Except you have to use the comma to start it.

    Why don't we just stay in the general global channel as we only can be in one channel as far I know
