Turn Commas Off/On In Settings

edited April 5, 2018 in Feedback and Suggestions
Hello! With the recent new update, there was an addition of commas into the game, except I dislike the option and I am sure others would agree with me as well. However, there are many people who have been awaiting the addition of commas.
You see, it was already in the games code so it wouldn't be too much to add this?
My idea is to make it an option within the game settings. Commas will be on by default and can be switched off to view gold without commas. It could be under Settings - Game - Etc.
This would please both parties. ..Of course, some would argue that it doesn't matter but news flash; to some people it does.

I hope my suggestion goes into consideration!

    I wouldn't consider the addition of commas a game-changing addition, but I am 100% for it as a quality of life update. That being said, I see zero reason to NOT allow it be to a toggle.

    What is your reason for disliking it, if I may ask?


    Edit: Forgot the not in the sentence, lol.

    I don't think that's necessary since most players were asking for this for about a decade. Unless you want to wait for another decade until they add On/Off button lel. Unless game gets shut down before that.

    Is it really necessary though? We see commas everywhere when it comes to numbers in real life.

    I'm happy to see the commas so people don't get scammed anymore (regarding both buyers and sellers).

    As a quality life update would be good. it's for those who dislike commas. I personally am not a fan only because i'm used to having no commas.

    Some people just like entirely whole numbers.

    Good thing there's no decimals, that would really complicate matters.

    The commas look like periods, but I'll get used to them.
    Another option could be to remove the comma and leave a subtle spacing. Example: 1,000,000 turns into 1 000 000 (but with smaller spacing).

    ... Or they could just revamp the chat and not fuse over the comma that.. should have been there already.

    Im sure im the only one with this issue, but i dont like the whisper system. Its never been clear to me how to us it and the few times i get it to work, it still becomes a hassle. Or you know, the randomly banned words.. Can we have our own filter sitting please? So the word banning filter would be on by default and we can turn it off if went want it off? So we dont have to do "s&ucks" in chat or "s u c k s". Because you know "****" can have someone think its anything and make it even look like your telling someone off when you arent D:

    Whisper requires you to type the '@' symbol followed immediately by the person's name. Immediately after that, you press the Spacebar once, and then type your message.

    If you switch over to the Whisper Tab of the Chat bar after your first Whisper, it will have the @[name] already filled in, and you can type as much as you want without redoing that portion every time.

    Bear in mind that you can't Whisper at people who have their status set to 'Offline'.

    The only other issue you might face is with people who decided, for whatever reason, to substitute the lowercase 'L' for an uppercase 'I' in their name, and that's not something that can be resolved without them fixing their font style.

    This isn't even a real problem. Who actually dislikes commas?

    But yeah, as a quality of life update, this could be added in. It may not be necessary but it would make both parties happy as well as improve the game itself, but that is just my ideas.

    I like the commas, but your comment is very insulting to those who prefer no commas. It's like saying the only people who like privacy are criminals with something to hide.

    Well, I haven't seen a single person provide a reason for wanting to turn commas off besides 'because I want them turned off'.

    For that matter, I failed to conceive a reason myself, even for the purposes of playing Devil's Advocate.

    Still, more customization is rarely a bad thing, so I'll support this suggestion. I see no harm, as long as commas remain turned on by default.
