I'm trying to take control of world chat on my server. I've been online for almost 12 hours now. If you shift click on the channel name, you can see a list of people in it, with the owner at the top. When that owner logs out, the ownership shifts to the next person on the list.
However, something odd I've noticed it that certain people will log on, and instead of being added to the bottom of the list, they go to a spot near the top. This part is confusing to me. How are they doing this? Is there some sort of priority you can get? Or some way to have your spot saved?
I assume you are looking to control it to unban some of your friends/alts, or use the power for abuse of the channel for gold blackmailing or similar. I wouldn't spend too much time or energy worrying about custom chat channels. Join the official LFG/World Defense channels from the interface options and be done with it.
I just want to understand how it works. I've been on all night, people log on in the morning and somehow they get placed close to the top of the list. Does it prioritize by level? Someone must know this.
It's probably just in the order that they originally joined the channel. If you joined it 59th then anyone who joined before you that is online, will be ahead of you for the throne. Don't fret, it's just a custom channel.
You just have to wait mate :)
How is it retarded, though? Seems like a great way to avoid people wreaking havocg0bledyg00k wrote: ↑8 months ago
