    Hey guys.

    My suggestion is that the server should notify players when a staff goes offline for players to know that they have logged off.

    I personally have tried calling staff a couple times before realizing they left, so I think something like this would allow us to know very quickly.

    I do understand that players may start messing around when they know that a staff recently went offline, however I think we already have that covered as players can report users on the forums or straight to staff.

    I think this would help in more ways than one.

    I'm neutral on this one. If I'm logging off, I always let players know in chat. If we have it publicly announced, Staff Members will most likely get tons of messages from players on Discord. It's not fun to have to turn away players after I log off because I'm exhausted and need to sleep.

    Support, great idea it'll be good for players to know when staff are logging off so they could report players on forums more easily.

    That's definitely fine cause in this case you are announcing that you're logging off.

    However, some staff members do leave and a lot of players think they're still online and ask for help until they realize they've logged off. I think it would be more easier for everyone this way, and players can also see whether staff are online / offline on Discord so I don't think that would be too big of a problem.

    You have a good point though but I think there are ways around that.

    Agreed!

    Imma start with neutral. I understand what you mean, but I am someone who clicks tab every 10 seconds to see if any of my friends came online, and so I normally can see if a moderator is online and when they go offline easily. Although, most people aren't as weird as me and only click tab like... never. So idk for sure.

    Support, I check tab a lot but others don't. And certain staff members don't always say good bye! xD
    It may help people remember to ss situations (if they know that a staff member isn't on to do anything about it there and then) and also so they don't unnecessarily tag mods on discord etc

    neutral, I feel like it would be much more helpful to notify when a staff member logs on.

    Ehh, but what if someone is making trouble, and the staff member logs on because someone pinged on discord, but once they see a mod is online, then stop?

    true, I guess but I feel like more people need help rather than acting bad.

    No Support, in my opinion we don’t really need it because we got a tablist also if there would be notifications certain players would make an advantage out It, in my opinion it’s not worth it.

    No support, we have a tab list and people check that regularly.

    In all honesty I never check tab (I have a lagtop so when I do press tab I lag out for a good 20 seconds (not good when your fighting a ghast and you press it accidentally, trust me this happened to me). To bypass this I just do /list which does the same thing but in a slightly harder to read format.

    As you said there is potential for this to be used for those who want to break rules and will wait for staff to leave. However it’s also helpful for those who need to communicate to a staff member but don’t realise they have left and help people know when they can start taking evidence for reports because no staff is on. Using tab is fine for some but for others it’s nice to have a notification. I was going to be neutral on this one but upon writing this I think the pros outweigh the cons, so support
