GENERAL


What would you like for this year on Ryzom?

Since these messages were added, the "announcement" sits there as the most recent statement and never goes away.:

"14:00:44 The Universe channel is a multilingual ................................
................................................................. ....................................
................................................................. ......"


I would rather not stare at a message all day long that takes up more than half of my window height making it difficult to impossible to follow conversations.   It turns the 'chat box" into a "chat that I can't follow" box.  If I don't make an entry in this channel, it sits there and never goes away .... as long as I am logged in never scrolls.

As a result if I am following a conversation I see:

________________________________________________________
" during the season"
"Hayt says:  I don't have an answer for you"
"14:00:44 The Universe channel is a multilingual ................................
................................................................. ....................................
................................................................. ..."

________________________________________________________

What's that about ?  Must I always have to "scroll up" as I make my rounds thru the chat boxes ?

I thought it was obvious that the window, defined by the white lines, has a permanent block of text that  annoyingly and unncessarily eats valuable screen space. You don't see that it is difficult to follow conversations when, every day, 60% of your chat window is filled with a message containing info you have know for 15 years ? .... 1 year ? ... 1 month ?

Only way to make it scroll is to type something in there. And rather than put the effort into typing:

"Hey, ignore this message cause I'm just trying to make the welcome message scroll so I can follow player chats" .... and repeating it in each chat of the 5 windows ... lately I just been hitting the space bar / return in each channel to make the welcome message scroll so I can again follow chats and assist folks or learn things when appropriate.

I'm not saying the message doesn't serve a worthy purpose.   I just don't think every player needs to see the 5 messages every day ... all day.... foirver and ever.

Perhaps it could be such that this message :

a) scrolls
b) appears for new player and then on 1st of month
c)  has a pop up allowing you to never see it again
d)  after 1st viewing, is seen only say if a player doesn't log in for say 30 days.
