Amphy Voice Removal

Post by Rico on Mon Oct 10, 2016 12:21 am

Amphy no longer uses a voice list. You may join Amphy and participate without needing to get your account voiced.


Amphy has long had a reputation for the poor attitude of its users, particularly elitist behaviour. In a completely one-sided vote, RP Staff have decided we would like to remove voicechat from the room, allowing all users to chat there free of charge. We're hoping this will improve your experience of the room.


Any questions? Feel free to ask them here.

Y'know I never really understand why we even needed a voice in Amphy, sort of the exact same thing as every other room, just needed to be voiced. Though that makes it much less of a pain if I ever want to change my nick to something else. So Im fine with this change

Oh ok, I always wondered why Amphy and Amphy alone had the voicechat? Just seemed weird to me. But hey, at least no more voice abuse. But seriously, what was the point of Amphy being the only room with voicechat?
And Enchi: There should be a delete button on your post

Voicechat was originally used in Amphy as the room was "RP on Demand". You had to volunteer to host an RP, then people who wanted to participate could gain voice and join.
Eventually trolls worked out how to request voice themselves and so we changed the system to what it was until today. This did help keep the room relatively troll free, but very quickly the average amphy user became a toxic presence and the moderation requirements for the room skyrocketed.


Amphy will remain as Rusty is for now. It will close and nobody will be able to talk in it, and it will open allowing users to RP. There will be no voices in there (except the host), although RP voices will still be able to use the commands in that room. It's mainly so we don't have to set modchat to % when we close the room.

Wait, what was the difference between requesting voice then in Amphy and now in Amphy? Was there no Main acc and 1 alt rule?

After every RP the room was purged of all voices. People were only voices for the current RP.

Mmm, I see now, seems like a tedious process to rotate through. Thanks for answering my questions.

I don't want to see the Modchat to go, because if it gets open, more trollers can access Amphy, like Main and Rusty, and i don't want Amphy to start forming into those 2 RP rooms, because Amphy is special for is DnD, Customs, and the occasional CQ or Kingderp, and i kinda don't want more Cruise, MM, ext. but i can make do, and those last 2 sentences are my own personal opinions, i don't really care that much

Waaait. If Amphy had to have users voiced to RP, aND Rusty closed for a scheduled RP, does that mean Amphy gets scheduled RPs now? Really stupid question, but eh.

Wait if amphy's modchat has been removed, will the FR ban be removed too? (that was a joke)
So what is to stop trolls from making amphy a main v2.0? (that's my real question)

I'm not sure how you arrived at that conclusion. Nothing is changing about the room except that it is no longer in voicechat.


We will be monitoring the room over the following months to see if there is an increase in trolls and moderator load. We do have some plans on how to deal with this though, but it's better to start low and increase restrictions, rather than go from the other end and add freedoms.
