Show phase population on .ph ov

Recommended Posts

Not a list of phase members.

Not a list of currently active players within the phase as that could be used for harassment.

Just a simple player count of people currently online on the phase would do.

As of writing this there are currently thirteen phases being advertised with no easy way to determine whether there is someone actively roleplaying there or not.

Loading into each one takes time. Furthermore with a good number of phases being populated by NPCs, Track Humanoid does not help with finding people as much as one would hope.

As a result the only recourse is to load into and move through each individual phase and search for players that way.

This also takes time and is very discouraging, especially after having dug through a number of other phases that are apparently empty.

The vanity of drudging through these ghost towns dies off pretty quickly when one is there solely in search of role, and or play.

I understand some might be worried that this encourages a type of mob mentality of people only visiting one phase, however I would like to remind those people that having said people there engaging in roleplay instead of standing around start is a net positive for the RP community as a whole.

Please implement this function. If people really want to go to other phases, the option to do so is still very much open.

Double-edged sword. Like you said, this feature discourages "less active" phases from ever getting the attention they rightfully deserve, which is the reason why (I assume) it has not been implemented despite being very possible.

Instead of flocking to the most popular flavour of the month, more effort could be focused into making other phases just as active. I assure you people will stay in start just as much, and there's nothing wrong with that when they're taking a break, mogging, or just socialising.
