There’s nothing in the murmur config about not counting some channels in the online number that I can see.
I could do an anti-idle I think but I kind of like having people idle. It makes it seem more alive than having no one connected.
Keep in mind that people are mostly playing a console game with built in voice comms right now. When ArcheAge launches or when playing PC titles it will bounce back.
We can do a better job of promoting it too probably. Nothing attracts a crowd like a crowd so we just need some core re-adoption. We need the lobby to be a place where people sit while computing, not just where people join a game channel when playing a specific game.
