So it seems there's this ongoing battle between two groups of people:1) Those who want peace and quiet from the economy, unless they're actively engaging in it.2) Those who want to be able to quickly and easily talk in chat about economic matters without having to worry if their messages are sent to the other party and without having to keep switching channels all the time.Unfortunately, the current system of chat channels is very poor at meeting the needs of these two groups of people because:1) Most new players do not use the chat channels or understand them.2) Most players even if they're not new, asking who sells an item, don't use economy channel. In fact, there doesn't even seem to be a rule that they should.3) Despite there being a rule to advertise your shop or residence in economy chat only, it seems most people still don't. The staff are slowly spreading awareness however, it's still a slow change.4) There's an overhead in flipping back and forth between channels, and it's very easy to forget to do so.5) Advertising other shops which aren't yours is often done in the town chat channel. It could be your alternate account or close friend. But certainly someone who wants peace and quiet from the economy is not getting it this way.For a good example, consider the common example of a player asking in normal town chat 'who sells ____'. Now, naturally, if you own a shop which sells ____, you want to help them out. So you have two choices:(1) You can type /ch e, then "Item at ####", then /ch t. As well as taking substantially longer, and being prone to additional typos, there's a chance they could have /ch hide e and wont even get your response trying to help them.(2) You can simply type "Item at ####" and be done with it.It seems to me that the simplest solution is:(1) Regulate all economy, including 'who sells ___', 'who buys ___', 'auction at ___', 'who has a lot of ____', 'check out my shop at ____', 'who wants a job helping me ____', 'what has a job for me', etc... These are all messages which people who don't want economy messages (/ch hide e users) probably don't want to read. Anything involving rupees or advertising a residence should be on the economy channel.(2) Expand the filter to include substantially more keywords, such as anything mentioning a res number, anything mentioning selling, buying, jobs, shops, malls, rupees, etc...(3) Add a way to disable the above filter for power users, and a way to report easily problems with the filter so it can be improved over time to be even more intelligent. Also, if someone sets a channel right before typing a message, the filter is disabled one time.Interested to hear the opinions of others on this matter.
