Auto-join and the lobby
Most of you are probably aware that, when you join group chat, you get automatically placed in the topmost room. This is why we currently have the Lobby - it acts as a landing space for everyone so the actual chat rooms don't get flooded by people entering. It doesn't serve any purpose beyond that and can be a little confusing to newcomers, and mods don't generally monitor it.
The good news is that we now have an option to disable 'auto-join', which is the feature that automatically puts everyone into a room. Now, when you login, you shouldn't be entered into any rooms. That means we may no longer need the lobby, so we might be removing it if this goes well. It's probably fair to say that would make chat more intuitive and easier to use.
We'll see if this works as intended tonight. If it does, we'll remove the lobby for Thursday and make things a bit simpler for everyone. Just wanted to give you all a heads up.
just because you're not doing something perfectly, doesn't mean you're not doing it
