    For instance general is called

    shroud of the avatar.general

    but you type

    shroud of the avatar:general

    If it's possible to make . work as well as : that might save a lot of confusion down the line.

    I'm not quite sure what you are suggesting? One of the issues we encountered is that multiple servers could have a "general" channel therefore you have to specify both the server and channel name.


    This was our original delimiter. However, we quickly discovered that server names could have periods in them which made parsing out the server/channel names from the text you typed next to impossible to do reliably. Instead we picked ":" which we hope to be less frequently used in server names.

    This was what I meant. I see why you chose that then. Does it make sense to use the : for the name of the channel as well, then?

    No reply needed, you're busy. You see what I mean and thanks for the reply. And thanks for Discord!
