Show/Hide LOOC (Observers) Show by default (instead of Hide)

Recommended Posts

I really dont need to explain why having it off by default (Without any indication) is a bad idea.
Some new players probably would like somebody to help them when they are just starting out, and have no indication that people are there and trying to help and ghosts feel like they are getting ignored when giving people actual LOOC advice, additionally, theres no way to know as a ghost that somebody has LOOC hearing for observers off meaning you might just be totally wasting your breath.
Its not going to cause Irreversible Trauma for somebody to hear a ghost tell them that they can make a screwdriver by using a metal rod and being like "Thanks but I dont want ghost advice, I want to learn the game myself" and turning it off for the rest of their time on aurora.

"Show hide" was "On off" being somewhat confusing

as far as i'm aware, it is on by default.

I joined the game and clicked the button which prompted the message "You will now see messages on the LOOC channel from observing/ghosted players.
Prompting me to believe that I previously could not see those messages

because your current preferences are saved in the DB, and they do not have the ghost LOOC one enabled. new players will have it enabled

Ok I understand, I guess this suggestion wasnt actually necessary then, due to miscommunications I thought this was an intentional design

The preferences of all the existing players have been updated, so ghost looc is enabled by default.
(As a result of the poll regarding that matter)

The default preferences include ghostlooc so all new players will see ghost looc by default.
