Per the discussion at the Town Hall, I have rolled out some new code to allow us to set up periodic and progressive reminders for players, to do certain OOC things.
Currently there are reminders for the following things:
1. Lacking a long enough description
2. Lacking @voice
3. Lacking @nakeds
I say these notifications are progressive for two reasons.
1. You will only see one notification each time the scan runs (it runs every 3 hours).
2. You will only qualify for a notification if you are past the 'earliest notification time'.
We require everyone have a description, even new players. So we will remind them no matter how old they are.
However, there is little point in badgering a brand new player who is just learning how to walk around, to set their @voice or @nakeds. So, our system waits until they've been around a few days before prodding them about these things.
@voice reminders start three days in.
@nakeds reminders start after a week.
These times might change, as we tweak things, but the overarching goal here is to make the new player experience just a bit smoother.
