    Unfortunately, we do not have any moderation of the /Yell channel.
    I recommend as mentioned above, set the /Yell filter to On.

    I mean, it's true and it's a valid option.

    Asura is overcrowded. The populations should be more balanced, but somebody people apparently listen to one day said "everyone come to asura" and people did.

    I think they should add an option where you can choose not to see a /yell if the same text has already been /yelled recently. for example

    *toggle spam control off*
    "job points do you need it buy?"
    "CP party do you need it? BRD GEO COR can i have it? 3/6"
    "job points do you need it buy?"
    "job points do you need it buy?"

    *toggle spam control on*
    "CP party do you need it? BRD GEO COR 3/6"
    "job points do you need it buy?"
    ^ (this wont show up anymore until you rezone)
    "CP party do you need it? BRD GEO 4/6"
    "CP party do you need it? BRD 5/6"

    I think this way it would help eliminate the amount of copy paste spams, simple and hopefully effective

    All they need to do is what every other mmorpg does and split the chat chanels up, put trade in trade and lfg in lfg. This way you have to use tab on the chat channel to move over and see lfg and trade.

    People selling services and wanting groups can spam all they want then.

    I suggested this about 10 years ago, but I imagine it would at the very least require a new user interface ~cough~ ~cough~... excuse me.

    Though to be fair(?), what they had there at the time [1], is basically what we have now (only two windows at most, and no tabs, but it would probably have been easier to implemen tabs in that).

    Maybe for the 20th anniversary surprise (okay I don't think it would really fit for that, but if it was one part of it, that would be nice, I maybe guess).

    I mean, that's true. As I have suggested merge servers (last year), people like to be in a large populated server with more English players, have most of everything in the auction house, independently soloing as long as you keep your adventure going.

    While there is no solution, people will still come to Asura because it's hard for them to get out and live in a quieter server. GM calls ended a long time ago.

    I suppose in fairness, the community did ask for a merge for quite some time before someone got everyone to just pile on asura. If they merged instead we would have ended up with 4-6 servers with good populations instead of 1 with 3/4 of the pop and the rest spread around the others.

    But now it's too late for that. They'd have to merge too many other servers together to balance it out.

    What I can tell you is I still know people here, and I"m not paying money to move to another server just to listen to more RMT spam and play with real people slightly more often (I say slightly because unless its like, dynamis or vagary or something, its not worth the trouble to gather real people regardless of the population when trusts will do the job with no waiting)

    I've been trying to stress for a long time now the advantages of being on a lower pop server- less RMT and cheating (disproportionately less in fact), much better grinding/farming camp availability, no wait for Ambuscade and such, can still make friends and find ppl to do stuff if you look, etc.

    But literally every new player thread I see here says "someone told me to go Asura." Everyone thinks more pop on one server is always better when it really is not so simple.

    We almost got a new UI, but then we didn't. A very early version of a new, more mouse-friendly UI with movable windows etc. was even tested on the Test Server before it shut down but apparently the guy working on it left the company or some silly reason and it never got finished.

    I understand your point. I remember you have told me I should stand up against people moving to Asura however I couldn't. I just don't feel like it. Maybe I should say Welcome to Vana'diel instead of Asura. You and I both know people have transferred without letting us know first. Try not to stress yourself out too much if people decide to go to Asura. Stress isn't good for health.

    This thread is about /yell issues on Asura. Of course, it has nothing to do with other servers if /yell doesn't bother you too much.

    Asura is my home server since Pandemonium got merged with. Anyone is more than welcome to come to here. Someone who has transferred to here absolutely has no right to tell someone else to move to another server nor make a GM call on us.

    True, some people just filter out or tune out the yells entirely, while others wish and want it to be useful but feel like they can't use it because of all the nonsense that goes on. This is not a real problem on other servers, but at the same time, in fairness if SE did something about this, it doesn't have to be an issue anywhere. Buuuut, they continue to drag their feet on this one.
