The Totally Awesome Rank Based Chat Scroller!

 

The idea is simple. I propose that a feature be added to allow main owners and owners to be able to set different scroller messages for every user rank below Owner. 

 

For example,

 

/s,mod There will be a staff meeting on May 3rd at 5pm EST!

/s,member Welcome back! You're an awesome member!

/s,guest Welcome to this chat! Read our blog to learn how to earn member

and /s would still change the scroller message for all users.

 

What are your thoughts on this feature?

Would you need to set 2 scrollers if you want your members AND mods to see the same message?

Is that technically possible to set different scrollers at the same time?

 

If not, the idea is still good, hoping mods would be able to see scrollers destinated to members and guests, members able to see scrollers destinated to guests.

This has been suggested before. I personally don't think it should be implemented; we already have it on FEXBots (not sure about other bot providers), and it wouldn't be easy to manage scroll messages, unless admin coded a panel or something which is unlikely.

For far too long, bots have implemented features that xat should have implemented.

 

I support this idea.

This is a really good suggestion. If its possible, i don't know why it shouldnt be added.

For a second i thought that the (announce) power might become useless with this being added, considering its 2000xats, but a scroll isn't as neat as the announcement power, so i guess, it is fine.

... It's already a bot feature and it's pretty darn useful

This would be very useful for the users who don't have the funds for a bot. I like how you recommended this as a feature rather than a power. 

 

I support.

I support this idea and suggest that scrolls for each rank should be in their corresponding pawn color.

This is definitely really useful. There should be a way to set this such as that you can do "/s,member+" or something so all ranks above member will see it UNLESS that rank has it's own scroller or something like that.

Sounds.. good. So, everyone can change the scroller? It doesn't have to be just main owner/owner only?

That would ultimately come down to the main owners preference. I think it should be generic (owners/main owners only) and if they feel like moderators and members are fit to make scrolls then they can modify those settings with Gcontrol.

Thats something you can set with gcontrol at the moment and as for rank based scrolls,  it would be the same.

This is a really good idea. Personally i've never been a huge fan of bots, and I agree with many in that bots have features which undoubtably xat should already have. I think more things like this should be added so we have a decreased dependency on bots, causing less concern when they go down.

It also could work like this:

 

/s,mod,member,owner if you want the scroll to show for more than one rank.

/sAll get this and reset everything (blank message turn scroller off)

/so,owner message

/sm,Mod message

/sb,Memeber message

/sg,Guest message

/som, owners and mod message

 

Suggest if not message set shows next lowest rank message

If im correct, if you do:

 

”/sgHello guests!”

”/soHello owners!”

 

Then “/sHello everyone else””

 

Everything is cleared and only the /s message is shown?

 

What about:

 

”/sHello all!”

”/soBan all trolls!”

 

Does this clear the /s message?

 

The way it should work is that that: 

/s = default (shows if no rank specific scroll is set)
