Can you explain why (I don't know much about coding or BYOND). Is it that the WAV/MP3 is too loud? Is the sound effect not editable (i.e can we not just export the file and alter it)? Or is there another reason?

Genuinely curious.

I think a mentor button is a good idea. Maybe allow several regular/volunteer players and admins on each server to have access to the chat, so it doesn't disrupt OOC and can be used for answering questions that don't directly need an admin.
Also if admins are offline, regular players can help?

And yeah low could include greenshift, without telling anyone it's a greenshift.

Re: they're in the walls peanut [reserved]

I agree that threat is broken and I also agree that Greenshift announcements are a bad thing. The nature of the game is creeping paranoia.
Having zero threat gets old quickly. As does 'here have another dragon + blob + shadowling'.

Maybe we need more antags or events similar to rods/meteors etc.
