48 Hour Warning - Nullsec Local Blackout
As announced on July 5th, in 48 hours, at downtime on Friday, July 12, local chat across all nullsec space will be switched over to delayed mode. This means that it will behave as local chat in wormhole space, with pilots only appearing in the local population listing should they choose to post messages.
When this change comes into effect, pilots will not appear in the local population listing or population count unless they choose to make themselves known by posting a message in local chat.
The duration of this blackout is undetermined, and we’ll be monitoring what effect this has on the cluster.
