    Hi all,

    Today we've added the new advertising channel to the server. We have taken some steps into making this system very easy to use. Firstly, to enter the advertising channel manually you can use the alias /a or /advertising. If a message is sent in global chat and the message looks like an advert, the message will be blocked and the server will automatically move you to the appropriate channel (in this case the advertising channel) so that you can advertise your roleplay or build along with informing you that you were moved.

    Entering the channel manually with the command will look like this:
    [​IMG]

    Sending a message in global containing an advertisement for a roleplay will look like this:
    [​IMG]

    Messages in the advertising channel can be disabled from being seen by using /chat:
    [​IMG]

    Example usage of how the advertising channel should be used:
    [​IMG]

    I would like to give credit to @Dawnkillerx and @Madi for helping me with this new addition to the server.

    Question, Why Does it say Madi is a Chat Moderator, To My Knowledge, Madi Has Not Recently or ever been promoted. Is the tag there just because you gave her the perms to help u make this feature?

    I think it is very useful for 2 reasons :

    Chat will no longer be flooded with Advertisements of youtube or Rps.

    People can hide the advertisements if they're not looking for streams or RPs meaning there is more likely to be a lot less arguing

    in my opinion this is agrate addition to the server, but if it was in a diffrent color (yellow maybe?) i thing it would make it even better and more noticeable.

    Maybe a cyan or blue color, to go with the colors of the server? I really don't know...

    That sounds like a good idea, so we don't always have to see the side thing to see if that person is in Global or Advertising ^-^
