Only problem with "Important conversations" is that there is a limit, and any thread not there automatically gets deleted with inactivity. Also the formatting is different and of course as mentioned above, everything will be under the posters name, or rather, the person who copy/pasted it all.Fantastic. Thank you
I really wish people would read the announcements, especially when they want to participate in the feedback on the subject!Only problem with "Important conversations" is that there is a limit,
In recognition of how far the Message Center has come, we have a list of improvements since its release;
- Important Conversations were added, allowing players to mark conversations that they most valued.
- The limit of Important Conversations was expanded from 5, and now the player can have as many Important Conversations as they desire.
I had a player spend weeks copy pasting the forum posts to a Google Docs just in case, so that we'd find out that it's pointless, what's funny is the screenshot that they posted in the announcement, on the left side you have the guild forum, on the right side you have the message centre, and you have a photo shopped arrow from the guild forum to the message centre, without a actual ingame feature to do this automatically and preserve the original author names / posts, and formatting ...Yeah they certainly never promised a loss-less experience. Just that there will be some guild messages that don't get deleted, so in theory you can put everything in message center instead. By hand. With totally different formatting, no hyperlinks, no colors, no bold and underline, etc -- but hey you can keep it in a message forever, buried on page 3-5 of your guild tab, where people will still ask "where's the list of..."
And yes, I spent 2 weeks last Fall when this first came up moving everything from our forum somewhere else and reorganizing it, so that by this time I'm done caring what happens. Do I like it? Not really, but neither do I like the complete imbalance in the game, so it's like, death by a thousand cuts? GBG and GvG are actually both broken now, one because of attrition cheats and bad league system, the other because of level 80 arcs and the 1000% attack boost released for the other feature - like a 75% defense HQ in GVG means anything to anyone - and none of it will fixed. PvP arena will be back and PvP towers gone again too, coming soon; after all, there has to be some way to hide the fact that people are still bot-farming the recurring Saab quest fights so it's not so easy to see the peeps in your hood who have 2500 fights on one of the 3 days when GBG camp cheats are not even available to them.
The game is really a shell of what it once was, it's more a time for sad reflection than more "feedback" as one gets the idea that Inno will double down on the direction they've decided to go, whatever the topic. All you have to do is look on the beta forum and see that Venus will include the same abused recurring fight quests that Saab had, to know that.
Be aware that time has nothing to do with it, but amount of messages written. You can also lock the "thread" so other members cannot write anything, which significantly lowers the chance pf a thread becoming quite flogged.The message centre deletes messages after a certain time.
Not quitehah, that's interesting, but then at the same time, doesn't that defeat the purpose of it? Its essentially then become the history tab May as well make every single message marked important, then nothing gets deleted?
They would have had to update the forum to add a feature to make some sort of export/transfer process. And add all the formatting options to the message center. It would have been nice, but I can also understand not updating something that's about to be nuked anyway.I had a player spend weeks copy pasting the forum posts to a Google Docs just in case, so that we'd find out that it's pointless, what's funny is the screenshot that they posted in the announcement, on the left side you have the guild forum, on the right side you have the message centre, and you have a photo shopped arrow from the guild forum to the message centre, without a actual ingame feature to do this automatically and preserve the original author names / posts, and formatting ...
diamond spending boycott pending, maybe then Inno will open it's eyes and start listening to it's players
Oh, ugh. Well that sucks honestly, but oh well. Since messages get deleted after a certain time, you really do have to save things outside of the game to make them permanent then now.Not quite
* An automatic deletion process was created, retaining the first 500 messages within Important Conversations, and triggering an automatic deletion process from the 501st message after 60 days.
