    Chat Suggestion

    I think that guild and party chat should not be limited to so little words, sometimes I am trying to explain something to a guild member and keep having to pause to see where I am at instead of just typing what I am thinking. And it is somewhat annoying if you are trying to read something to have to wait until the person can type another sentence. I assume the world chat and current chat would stay the same to prevent spammers and trolls, but guilds should be allowed to communicate effectively.

    Yeah, also maybe in the guild have a separate chat for officers and guild leaders to talk about important issues all together in one place.
    *that* is something I desperately want, yes. ^_^

    I just hate to be typing and have to break off to .... ooooh, shiny!

    *note - backlit keyboards - distracting me from what I want to say for years now*

    Yes, but if you are in one of those places and are trying to either type or read something you do not have the time to pause and check the log as easily. a few more lines (not as long as PM) for guild and party just would make it easier

    Both the guild chat and the PMs have a log where you can read back in your own time what's said. Doesn't that help? The GC log resets when you log in again, but the log of PMs doesn't, so you can reread your convo with someone a few days later.

    I think having a few more characters is not a bad thing in Guild Chat. Yes, I usually use PMs when I have to have long drawn out conversations, but we have many people in our guild who do not speak English as a first language, and may not have the ability to think in such concise terms as our notable spaceslug here. Off the top of my head, we have two Palestinians, one Venezuelan, one Lithuanian, two French, one Chinese, one Malaysian, a few Italians and some Germans. Granted they do speak English to varying proficiencies, but I think giving them a few more characters in Guild Chat won't break the server and will help them communicate better with those who are not multilingual.
