I'm late because I haven't been playing nearly as much since tells and guild channels are gone. Feels less like a tabletop experience, and more like a anonymous MMO without them, and I've found it harder to keep signing in.

I would have voted negative. Tells I can do without, but the lack of guild channels have completely gutted any motivation I have to participate in my guild, since it's rare I'll meet other members in game.

I certainly feel like the pboards are perfectly usable for ooc finagling for scheduling, and I've done it in two guilds now successfully. I forgot they existed for a short while after joining, but now that I've remembered they're handy and don't really take that much more thought or time to add to. After all, is 'note edit #' and then pressing enter and typing your message that much harder than 'tell <name> message'?

Not to mention that, for AlwaysShunny's case...the lack of ooc communication has you not participating because you don't have IC interaction? You aren't getting IC interaction either way, so really you were just making friends oocly with the player. IC avenues like messages or notes left in the headquarters or other covert options I might not know about can easily take that ooc communication IC and actually affect your character rather than blurring the lines between ooc and ic communication.

All in all I feel that I like the lack of tells, since there ARE alternatives that work very closely. ooc channel can be turned off, chatting can be done in discord if you really wanna chat, and super important scheduling things CAN be done via pboard with minimal effort extended forward. And you CAN address a pboard to an entire guild, so they function for scheduling just as well as guild channels, and I feel the 'X wrote/edited a note on the pboard' message a lot less interrupting than a bright red message, AND i can choose to read the updated note at my leisure (such as in a lull of posting or once I'm out of my current scene.)
