OOC setting, 4 options

Postby Ivuchnu » Thu Jun 11, 2020 4:43 pm #565211

"Is this icky in my ocky?" during accidental "o" instead of "t", "can we play/how to disable ooc?" during drama in OOC...

Fix is easy - OOC being a setting with 4 options:
  • Enabled
  • Read-only - will spew red message at you instead of passing yet another message meant for IC to OOC, works as "enabled" if you are on lobby screen or round did not start or ended (but not if you are dead).
  • Disabled during game - if you are alive and play game, you don't see OOC and neither can write to it. Dead, on lobby screen, or round ended or did not start - you see OOC and can write to it. You won't miss post-round discussion but will be free from OOC drama disrupting your IC chat.
  • Disabled

This is cool. If we're talking about doing more with OOC someone mentioned wanting to mute custom votes. Would be pretty cool.

I'd definitely use read only. Maybe even disabled during game.

What if we added a personalised word/user filter to ooc so I can listen to the discussion about xyz game mechanic but not have to listen to retards talking about crabs every 10 minutes
