    Hello!

    My name is WizardBard and I'm a pretty new player on Ruinscraft, specifically MCAtlas. While I've only been playing for about 3 weeks, I've noticed an issue with the chat system in its current state. As of right now, many players are often getting into conflicts in chat, and these conflicts can get quite heated. Whether over in game issues, or political differences, these fights flood the chat with lots of messages, making it hard to communicate. While many players suggest that the two sides move the chat to private messages, this isn't always feasible as 3 or more parties can be involved in these debates. Thus the messages are confusing, and often the conversations will work their way back into the global chat, once again flooding it with messages. I have seen many community members voice their displeasure over these debates, and I believe that actions should be taken to help limit the flooding which these fights cause.

    My proposed solution to this would be a form of group chat, or a private messaging system which can send to multiple people at once. This way when two groups began a verbal conflict it can be contained within a private system, and players not involved nor interested in these debates won't be subject to the chat flood they cause. This system could also be beneficial for a group of players who are friends in game, but aren't in the same town or nation.

    (P.S. I don't know if this has been suggested before, if so I'm sorry)

    MCMMO has a party chat feature which is good for groups. Although, most people are unaware of it and don't use it.
