Can we PLEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSE extend gag to include
channels, or have it an option to include channels?

You can probably set up your client to gag any text coming in from a

This might be a nice idea for those of us who do not have clients able
to do this. However, it is already possible to configure the info channel
so that you only see level and death messages and nothing else (by turning
seedeath and seelevel on but turning the channel off). So unless you want
to see some people's comments and not others, I don't really see the
triggers are such a problem.

Actually I'm not sure whether you still see levels with the channels
off, but you do with deaths.

hmm, I don't know why you would want to do that...if you eliminate one per
son's info or chat message then there might be 'holes' where it seems
as if a character is talking to nobody...if you don't want to listen
to a certain person, you might as either just ignore or turn off the chann
el all together. If the person is being _that_ spammy, i'm sure others wil
l tell'em to shut up.

If you haven't noticed, info is the channel a lot of people use
in order to exchange information over a recent death or a level,
especially in pk or areas such as SL. I can't afford to have it
turned off since a lot of the urgent help requests and such come from
the info channel, as does interesting new facts -- Ceri's triggers
apply to none, but clutter up the channel whenever somebody's info goes
Sandra, you say that it is no longer a problem now -- and i remind you
of the logic i've used before. All it takes for it to be spammy again
is for people to do the same thing -- and as Ceri proved, it's not that
hard a thing to do. Heck, we could simply have triggers go off for
various things -- praises, for example, which aren't varied -- and
cause just the same amount of spam we had from before.
The bottom line is that people would like to use the channel without
having it spammed by some thoughtless bot that is afk in ooc. If anything,
at least restrict channel usage while ooc -- not being able to use info
(speaking thru it, not receiving) would be more than dandy for me.

Yeah, I can attest to the fact that Ceri is OOC a lot, having tried to
talk to her on a couple of occasions and never getting a responce. I
would like to see the changes in the area of people being connected for
hours upon hours while afk, than necessarily to the info's specifically.
No one gains by having players connected 24 hours a day while not there,
but problems sure seem to arise. (this now, riptide before, and I am sure
at some point the create mages will get into trouble from what they
are doing too)

I'd love gag to extend to channels. And boards.
