Normalize world/trading channel names upon creation

#1 » Post by mcheka » 14 Oct 2015 09:17

Normally, world or trading are spelled in all lowercase. Since these are not global channels automatically enforced by the client, like LookingForGroup is, these channels will only be created when the first person to log on after a server restart creates them.

If this person is a mouth-breather, and happens to have typed /join WORLD, or even worse, /join tRaDiNg when they first created their character, then the channels will be created with their blasphemous spelling, until the next server restart/crash, and until a person who typed it "normally" creates the channel.

Example image below (note, the poor souls typing in these channels were probably not responsible for this abomination and affront to the WoW Gods):

I'm a bit OCD about stupid spellings for these channels, but I figure I'm not the only one who's slightly irked by this when it happens (which, I'll admit, isn't that common - most people on TW don't seem to be prime candidates for castration, and spell world and trading normally, which helps me maintain some hope for the future of humanity).

Suggestion: Have the server automatically log in with a fake character on server startup (TrinityCore has ample support for this) and create these channels as world/trading or World/Trading, so trolls won't make our beautiful channels have such ugly names, or have a server-side check when the client sends a request to create these two channels, normalizing their spelling.




Yes, this suggestion is dumb and probably a waste of time, and mostly an OCD rant about people who aren't like me, and spell things in a godforsaken fashion. And no, I won't install some addon to do this for me. And yes, I realize there's a 99% chance that after seeing this post, people will troll me by using stupid channel name spellings on purpose.

But suggestions like these are a good sign, it tells me people don't have so many more gamebreaking bugs to complain about. This could be used when advertising for the server. :D
