Open Chat Edit
Started as a loose groupchat for late-night server members (by Red_Mag3), in defiance of the unofficial policy of CivEx staff of dismantling globalchats, in mid-2016 it became the De facto global chat for 2.0, after receiving tacit approval from the mod team as a platform to disseminate announcements.
OpenChat ran under the following guidelines:
A. No one who asked to join could be denied.
B. No mods or admins were allowed (before mod/admin ratification).
