OOC Reminders from SYS-MSG
Progressive reminders

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.

Suggestions for reminders? Questions?

When you say @nakeds, does that mean you need to have them all filled in? I know I only have it set for one arm, for example, because it's not particularly fun to have the exact same sentence for both arms.
It checks if someone has filled out ANY @nakeds, the assumption being if they have not set even a single one, they probably weren't aware it was even a thing. So if you have even 1 character in any of your @nakeds, you won't get the reminder.
How're these going?
This has been in game for a while. Any issues? Any suggestions?
I don't know about how the messages are going, and what effect they are having per se. I was the one that brought up the @voice thing during the Town Hall, and that prodding fixed at least one instance of someone not having an @voice right away though.

It may be an effective tool though, because I haven't really noticed the problem since it was implemented, except with maybe the freshest of newbies.

Just got this auto reminder and it totally helped me set my @naked correctly. Thanks!
Fantastic! If you have ideas for additional reminders please post em!
I have added two new notifications!

To add these notifications I had to start tracking who read @rules and @newbie, which means that everyone is marked as having NOT read it. Just use the commands and you'll no longer get the reminders.

1. At 2 hours, new players will be reminded to read @newbie if they haven't already.

2. At 3 hours, new players will be reminded to read @rules if they haven't already.

Added a new reminder for any player older than 1 month that has never posed. But, as of the time of this writing, not a single person online had never posed! Good job people!
Okay, I realized that there were some missing links with my reminder code. I wanted to be able to send out reminders for things that are not easy to track if a user has done. Like if they've found the forums.

This meant I had to change the way reminders worked so that I could both provide a time when the person should start seeing a specific reminder (IE: 1 hour into playing, or 3 months into playing), but also provide the number of times they should see that reminder.

So we now have two new reminders.

1. We have @tutorials and video tutorials msg (shown about 2000 seconds into playing)

2. We have a forum! (shown about 24 hours in)

I think these will help point new players in the right direction.

I've also increased the frequency of these messages to once every half an hour.
I continue to add new reminders. I'm looking for feedback from newer players on what reminders we could add that would have helped you along your new player journey.
Based on feedback today, I have moved these reminders to the new read-only Tip-Line channel.

You'll be listening this channel by default when you come out of char-gen from now on, but you can @xsilence it like other channels. I've also done a one-time forcing of everyone to listen to this channel.

So, tune these out with @xsilence if they're getting too frequent and you know what they're reminding you about already.


To be clear on this: you only saw new tips today because I added new ones, and each one was set to be shown twice. Thus, after 24 hours you'd have seen them all and it would go back to silence until you needed to be reminded of something. This is how the system works still. If you stay logged into the channel, you'll only be notified if something is missing (@voice, @nakeds, etc) or if a new tip is added that you haven't seen before.
