An interesting conversation manifested in the Ashtan thread that I would like to explore. So as not to derail the equally interesting conversation going in that thread, I thought I would start another devoted to the topic of City Channels and the appropriate uses thereof. I am hoping this thread can be helpful and productive to creating more enjoyable communities within the game, and that the conversants can avoid forum RP and rationally address the issue.
1) What is the purpose of city channels? I think the root of the question comes to this: What is the purpose of having a sharing channel for citizens? If we do not objectively define this it will quite difficult, if not impossible to produce standards for it usage that are consistent and logical.
2) What is (in)appropriate to be communicated on a city channel? What things should we be promoting on the city channel? What should we be discouraging on the city channel?
3) How will these standards vary based on the cultures of the various city-states? Can a city-state with free speech rightfully deny people the right to use a channel? Does it make sense for a authoritarian city-state such as Mhaldor to heavily regulate it?
Please feel free to add more issues or points that may have eluded me.
