I just had a thought. We already have the market channel for advertising the interest of buying and sells wares. But many people don't have the market channel open and do miss out on said items of interest.

My suggestion here, is to allow a blue message broadcast (just like when invasions starts or when Learner has something to say about the server going down) to hold a message about the players promotion of buying or selling items. This would allow everybody to see and may bring in more revenue for players and just better advertising in general.

The things that would need to be discussed would be:

- How does one get to have a message? Auction of a bid of coin? Set payment? GC or plats? If plats then I would suggest 1 plat as an outright win. This also helps learner get in revenue of server and other costs.
- How often an advertisement broadcasted for to prevent spam? Once every 30 minutes? Once every hour?
- How long does the player get his/her broadcast for? 6 hours? 12 hours? 1 day?

Would be a neat little addition.

There are people who don't go onto the forums though. Half the players don't currently.

Don't forget that the OL client supports 4 open channels for normal players and 10 for Premium as well. So most of the time you can have @3 open. When you don't you can check with the #recent 3 command.
