I spent 20 years in the military, where I learned radio protocols. They exist for a reason. Saying "over" or "out" (*not* "over and out" please) helps keep folks from walking all over each other. Identifying yourself at the start of each transmission avoids confusion. Not talking unless you have something useful to say does too. Getting gamers to do stuff like that is sorta like herding cats, though. :-)One thing I miss in current systems is the ability to at least monitor several channels at once. Say the healer channel, the main raid channel, and whatever other channels are deemed useful (one per group?). Or you can divvy things up, and only monitor what you need to monitor. It would be even more useful in EVE, where you can have as many as 25 squadrons divided into 5 wings in every fleet (256 player "raids", anyone?)
