    While the idea of it definitely seems like a nice touch, and it is by concept, I think that considering what happened to the chats at Gacha Studio and Pocket Chibi (at least those are the main two I check), we can say that they haven't really gone too well.

    Rules are broken on a regular basis, with the most common one being roleplaying on the default channel. When asked to move, some comply, but many of them ignore the requests, and some even act up about it, saying they can do what they want like the edgy 12-year olds that they are. I don't know about you, but it honestly feels like blatantly disrespecting Luni, who was gracious enough to make fifteen (15) RP channels. It wouldn't be that much of a problem if it didn't display the most obvious problem of the chats - the moderation.

    As far as I can remember, Luni is the only one with the ability to do so (at least that's what I remember, sorry if I'm getting it wrong), and let's be honest, you tust can't moderate a chat alone, especially with a chat of this kind. Even bans really don't seem like they'd work - if they're IP-based, for instance, it's easy to either follow the same steps to sidestep that as with your PC.

    With that said, here are a few suggestions on how to improve it; if not for the current games, then at least for Gachaverse:
    • Make a tutorial that explicitly instructs people how to change channels
    • Add the moderation tools to the base APK, hide/lock them and require special promo codes to make them visible/useable, as that seems to be the best way to implement more people as moderators
    • Make Roleplay 1 the default channel instead of English 1, so that those who refuse to change channels out of laziness are no longer a problem

    The thing is, I think the chat was designed for people to get to know each other, roleplay, and just chat, without joining the Lunime forums. I have to be completely honest, the idea is great, even if you have some rule breakers. To fix these problems, there would have to be mods on twenty-four seven and that would just be alot of work. Especially because there are only a few amount of mods, and monitoring the chats can be almost impossible. Not to mention the fact that everyone probably goes by a user or just a random name. The good thing is, the system was probably designed for problems like these, in fact, you can have several characters in gacha studio and pocket chibi, but it doesn't mean the individual characters will be banned. The actual user will probably be banned or removed from the chat.

    Though these things seem like major problems, in the future, I'm sure it can be fixed. Plus, the chat isn't even close to the stuff you can just find on the internet. For now, you may just have to be a bit patient, if there is a specific person you are having a problem with, I think you could report it to a mod here on the forums, though this may not Guarentee that it will be taken care of.

    Just give them a little more time to sort this stuff out, the staff needs breaks too.

    We need the same chat system in Gacha Resort because there's only 5 channels for chat in general. It's very common for a roleplay to be interrupted by a random person that just wants to talk about, say a cat they found. The group I normally roleplay with are generally nice about it, or at least not screaming "OMG GET OUT!! YOU'RE RUINING THE ROLEPLAY AND THIS IS A CRITICAL PART!!!" at the person. There's also this one person (I don't remember their user because they barely appear on chat) who only speaks Spanish and they ask if anyone also speaks in Spanish (of course, it's written in Spanish). Since everyone in Chat so far speak very little to no Spanish, that person has no-one to interact with. Another good future update for Gacha Resort would be to add the same chat system as the other games where there's different languages and different types of roleplays.

    The thing is that the chat doesnt even work for half the people that have the games... I think that should be fixed...
