Proposal
Create the option for a "General Chat" channel that could be used by all players on all planets
Justification
Shouldn't be a huge thing to change but could have a profound positive impact
Motivation
To make it more welcoming for new players and to build the community
Are we able to set up a server wide general chat channel in game? Currently we set up "Group", "Guild" etc but having a "General" channel that all could access would be a great boost to the community.

It would allow new players to ask questions as well as players needing a hand with a mission or looking for a group to put a call out. Even a place for players to get to know one another and have a bit of fun to enhance the community.

I know we have Discord but there is only ever a few of us in Voice Chat and asking for help can take a long while to get a response.

If we have 70 players online playing at the same time getting some chat and banter from those wanting to could be a real asset and shouldnt be too hard to set up? (coming from someone who has absolutely no idea on how hard it would be to set up)

Granted we would all need to police to ensure no grieving or abuse but I really dont think that would be an issue on our server.

This already exists. We have on our roadmap to make it auto-join for all players since it does seem to be relatively unknown. Eventually we'll also connect it to Discord, but that is farther away.

I joined up and found that the Galaxy wide chat doesn't work.
Is this related to the known issue of chat channels working intermittently or hasn't it been hooked up yet?

It should work fine.

Where your chat tabs are, right click and select "Add Tab" then right click again and select "Join Chat Channel." In the channel browser, expand "Restoration" then select "Galaxy" and click the "Join" button. Then right click your new chat tab and select "Modify Tab" and under Available Channels find "Galaxy" then click the ">>" arrow to add that channel to that tab then click OK.
