Emotes in all chat channels
So I did a bit of searching the forums first, the only threads I could find were in Tribble sub forums, and this is now also a problem on Holodeck.

It seems we have lost the ability to disable the emotes "channel", so that now, if we go into a social hub that is prone to tons of emotes (Drozana, etc), we now see all of the verbalizations of the emotes in ALL of the channels. This can get quite annoying.
For one thing why do we need verbalizations of emotes? At any rate being able to disable them at least would be a good thing.

I seem to remember there was a checkbox to enable or disable emotes channel, so if you wanted to read all that for some reason, you could keep it in one channel.

Now that's gone, and going into a social hub floods ALL channels to the point of being useless.

Please fix it :)

Just looked and confirm there is no longer a box to enable/disable emotes in channels.
Please give this a high priorty on the to do list.

Also feel free to add some new ones in the process :D

I've seen this, too. Very annoying when trying to follow fleet chat and there are emotes from people not in my fleet flooding the channel.

Unfortunately, there will be no fix. I had sent in a bug report on this via email (I have to email since they have me blocked from the support pages with their supposed "infinite loop" script they placed on my account).

Their reply to me via email was that this was intended and they needed to do this because of something they did to the chat channels to fix some prior bugs. There will no longer be the ability to disable emotes. They did this to a couple of other channels as well, /say being one of them.

The strange thing about this, is that my older toons who had channels with emotes disabled, still have emotes disabled and I don't have the option to turn them back on... But all of my newer toons are totally screwed because all of my channels get flooded with emotes. I hate not being able to turn them off.

Normally it doesn't bother me... but on Risa... i dang near pull my hair out... if you are anywhere near the dance floor, just forget about carrying on any type of conversation. Especially during a dance competition

Just found a great workaround. It takes a bit more effort than simply unchecking a box, but it works brilliantly! I no longer have emotes or dabo flooding all of my chat channels!
