SPLITTED: WAS: Am I making this more difficult?

While I created new tabs for the Galaxy and Trader channels, you can just add them to the main chat tab, and force anything you want to go to the other channels by typing /galaxy textofmessage or /trader textofmessage. Stuff on those channels appears in a different color, with channel name, in the main tab, if it's joined to them.

Yep, there's already an all person, whole galaxy chat channel in the game... and no one uses it at all. Though they occasionally ask for one on the forum. :roll:
Is this trader thing still going? I often wonder why there's no trader only guilds, a bunch of people working together to make a business out of it. Is it because we're so fiercely competitive?

Everyone in my guild has at least one trader, with one exception (her toons are jedi and entertainer). So they do exist, and we do help each other out with resource trade and spawn points and such, but trading is very independent by nature. You decide what you want to build and get the stuff you need for it and then build it. Really the only time other people have to come into the process is if you need help getting the needed resources.

To be honest I dont think the problem is so much that people don't use whats there but for the most part that they don't know what is available.

One of the huge hassles with the SWG interface is that it is not intuitive, for example very few people know about the /locatestructure or /showi commands which are very useful.

Ok, we are not a trader only guild. BUT we are
TOG = Traders Of Goods :)

We are a guild of crafters and their suppliers. So nobody have to be a trader to become a member of TOG - a combat type you just need free lots for some harvesters or time to hunt creatures for their resources (mostly hide). ;)

I started on Wanderhome and I think the guild I joined was primarily a trader guild but that was right after the game went live, I got dragged away by friends to Sunrunner, they then left the game and by the time I went back to Wanderhome that guild had fallen over as well, was a shame they were a fun lot.
