    Hi devs,

    Recently came back after a few years playing wow... (sorry :) )
    One of the neet things in wow I really miss in UO (there is not many things I miss... I promise) is the global chat system that wow has!
    I like the way the chat system works in the new client, but I really miss the global/area chat channels that wow has.

    It would be really great with:
    - A "city/trade channel" you would automaticly enter when you go to a town
    - A "LookingForGroup" channel
    - Working "whisper system" - so you can speak private with someone over a distance without being in party with them.

    Any chance? I know the whisper system might cause some issues since UO names are not unique like they are in wow.
    I wouldnt mind some kind of forced or selfinvented lastname for my chars, so that all chars could have an unquie name :)

    A global chat system already exists in the game. However, it is not easily accessible in either Classic or Enhanced clients. This is an issue we're looking to fix, so expect more details in an upcoming publish!
