This really isn’t acceptable anymore. It has been half a year since Global Chat was released. The game was streamed by a German streamer with over a million subscribers, and it was in the latest Humble Monthly. The game has just gotten relatively big, and with 0.7 right around the corner, it’s only going to get bigger.
To give credit where credit is due, the dev team have been pretty good at dealing with reports, and players who break the rules are usually dealt with on the same day.
Unfortunately, as I mentioned, the game’s current and incoming growth is going to make 11 people, who mostly live in America, just not good enough for moderating such a large game.
To be constructive, I have some suggestions for potential moderators:
- Well-regarded GMT moderators, for example Bikonito, Massaki, etc - they already have history moderating TU’s predecessor
- Drrabbit - Well-known game veteran with a good sense of judgement.
- Demoncyborg/Commodore Beeps - Active player with moderation experience.
I won’t rattle off names for too long. I’m sure the devs can find suitable moderators, especially if there was an application page.
I’m sure this has been on the dev’s bucket list for a long time, but the large argument in global chat that happened today, along with how it affected my close friends, tells me it could really use some prioritizing.
