There’s lots of different opinion on this. A poll might be interesting? Feel free to comment or suggest a better poll.

No option for getting rid of it and using a different method for (room) announcements.

I voted to remove it, but I do agree with others when they say that might just spread the problems elsewhere, so solutions to that need to be considered too.

I voted to keep it the way it is now.

 

I see two benefits to WC:

1) I feel that World Chat is a terrible place, and I never read it, but I appreciate that most of that badness happens THERE instead of wherever I am reading. 

2) When I first joined, it was helpful to have a place to go to ask basic, newbie questions from wherever I was.  

 

All the other choices would remove one or both of those benefits.

 

Now, if you wanted to make a UI setting that let me remove the WC tab from my chat box, I'd be up for that.  Not a big deal, though.  It's easy enough to ignore.

Voted NO, do nothing. Yes, its full of adverts. Yes, it comes with LOTS of crap too. But just like Google… gotta put a bit of effort into sortin thru the BS to get what you want. Does Google also need fixin? 

 

We already have tools to deal with WC... if our very own personal "iggy" filters aren't enough... 3dx already has a backup for us… another Iggy/Spam filter. I suggest you learn to use it. Point n click, pretty easy. Don’t want to see any resources spent on features we already have available.

 

 

There are countless other areas I would prefer to see the Devs focus their time n resources. With limited resources comes limited development.

 

Is this really that important? When Local, Group and Personal chat are also available…. are we really that sensitive n lazy?  

 

I don’t believe most of us are.

Voted for moderation but that can be a whole different can of worms. I think it could work but you’d have to vet candidates. You could offer discounted or even free subscriptions by means of recompense.

Ideally, as I’ve discussed several times some people need to act like adults and take responsibility for their actions. I’d like it to stay the same but if push came to shove then we have mods. No one wants to be policed but no one wants to be taxed to speak either.

Despite the vocal protest to keep wc as it is so far the vote is,

27 in favour of a change, paywall, moderation or removal

10 in favour of no change

Interesting how the louder voices can distort the perception of majority wants. Turn out is low so the majority i suspect has nothing to do with wc and doesn’t care either way.
