View Full Version : #SPP-WiFi

6th May 2007, 7:26 AM
I noticed that, although #SPP-WiFi is for both trading and online battling, all it really has is spam for trades such as for shinies or illegitimate hacked Poke'mon.

I was wondering... Wouldn't it be a good idea to make a separate channel dedicated to battling so that people who want to play against others won't get their requests to battle flooded by the constantly flowing trade requests?

Hell no. Maintaining one room is a pain in the *** enough as is. TWO would be hellacious. Imagine how much trouble that is for some of us who would have to watch over THREE chats (SPP, SPP-Trade, SPP-Battle). :|

Yeah, I know that, but even if I did, very few would know about it. I'm wondering if Serebii would even acknowledge the existence of a channel like that and put it on the front page as a Java link and let it have the usual rules, etc...

Wouldn't it help if we get more ACTIVE ops?

Also, why not put the chan on mute always and make Serebii put on ways on how to PM a person, that way, it would lessen the spam.

Just my two cents...

That's a pretty good idea Sheenz... but it'll result in the spammage of the main SPP channel imo. This is because no one would know who has what Pokemon etc, and will ask on the main channel... which I think is already spammy enough =(.

But I'm in on more ops. Maybe people from all different timezones =/.

Getting more Ops is always a great solution but even if we have more ops, and only like 2/over nine thousaaaaand are active, it's pointless.

I agree with Kintana, there should be Ops from different timezones, not because I am in a different timezone :P...okay maybe that's the reason, but still, there should be at least 4 or 5 active ops during a certain time of the day.

We really don't need that many more ops.

We have enough as it is.

However, some ops live in the US and can't be on during late hours, like myself. :\

I'm on most of the weekend, and also on after school when I'm not busy.

However, please take into consideration that other Ops do in fact have other things to do, so they may not be there 24/7.
