Default Special Guild Chat Whispers

Another suggestion from my wife, she is suggesting a Guild Wide Whisper. She says just typing something in the guild chat doesn't mean everyone will see it & whispering it to each person takes too much time, so if a chat command like "/w guild " was added then each person would get the message whenever they sign in.

On this note, instead of the often requested Officer Only mail option, I suggesting an Officer Only Guild Whisper command "/w officer ", which each Officer would receive when they sign in.

This may be a more doable option than reworking the mail.

I don't know, I have found the whisper function to be too unreliable to be....well...relied on. I don't know if it is an issue with my computer or not, but several times I have been told that I have been sent a whisper and never have received it.

Mail I get all the time.

Just my two cents.

I've whispered to the wrong person & done the dreaded "unwhispered" whisper, when you think you're whispering but you're really not, but I've not run into what you say has happened to you. So....... I just don't know.

usual when what happens to Dom happens to me is that the chat moves the whisper up off the screen and maybe like me don't usually scroll up to see if there is anything for me to read.

Sounds like we could use a full screen mode for the guild chat. I know I've missed a lot of things because they scrolled too far up the list.

Indeed, whisper needs to get fixed first. Have had plenty of times I didn't receive a whisper, or a whisper from me wasn't received.

i have never had a whisper not be received by myself or another. if you are having problems, is it usually someone with a space in their name? You can't send a whisper if the name has a space in it UNLESS the space(s) are replaced with the pound symbol (#).

I wonder if server resets kill whispers like they do guild battle replays?

PLEASE NOTE: they my relocate this thread to Bugs & Complaints if we keep getting off topic.

Idk if there is a problem with the whisper feature Dom, but I can tell you that if you do a page reload, login and logout of you account before you see the whisper in the guild chat it will disappear.

Also keep in mind that if your using the phone app and sign in to your account and not check the guild chat, until you sign in to your computer the same can happen as well.

Don't you hate when that happens Rizathivax? So embarrassing glad I wasn't talking bad about someone in those moments! Also I like your wife's suggestion on the officer and guild whisper feature.

Yes it does. Just like it kills any guild chat that was going on previously b4 the reset. All you see is the server reset message with the time of the reset.

Don't forget too, if you leave your game on the guild screen, whispers received will get bumped by regular chat text.
