I love disco balls and have never had a problem with people using them in any location, its a fun item and usage should be encouraged!

If STO has turned into an online porn service to satisfy the lustful teenagers, then they should be reported to the appropriate law enforcement agency. These Disco Balls should only be used either in Club 47 or on RISA or anywhere there is a Dance Club, depending on your faction.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH ALREADY!
Being honest, I rarely see them anymore. Maybe once or twice a week. And I tend to play almost every day.

Oh dear.

Captain,we have a disco ball over reaction! A meltdown is underway, we should evacuate!

Clearly this is another example of Federation discrimination. Trying to deny or restrict dancing and partying to others is an affront to those who enjoy such things. If you ever left Earth Space Dock, you might come to realize that not all social zones are created equal. I don't recall nominating you as the morality police. In most jurisdictions dancing is not a crime.

As to the performance issue, I don't have the most amazing desktop, and run win xp still. I play the game on a 40" LCD at 1920x1080 and the disco balls have no real impact on the game's performance that I have experienced.

if you don't like them, then just move away. They have a limited area of effect. Even if you are within the area of effect they DO NOT interfere with you performing any game action or interaction.

I think the disco balls are fine, people just over react to the smallest things.

It's good for people to be able to have fun and be wacky, but players who want to be serious also should have the ability to be serious. Things like the cannon screen shake and the dancing should be opt out. I don't think they need to be disabled completely or restricted to one location.
I agree. Unfortunately, Cryptic periodically, releases this type of nonsense into the game, as it qualifies as "content" in their eyes, and some of our fellow players find it humorous. People want to play Star Trek disco fine, if that's what you're into. However, anytime someone pops one of these, they should be loaded into a separate instance, that's been set aside for this stuff.
This all happened... more, or less.

I have to AGREE. There is a huge difference between 'having fun' and taking over a strangers toon. Forced activity intitiated by another player should not be allowed anywhere in game.

As for the other "fun" junk, and in a game like STO thats all this stuff is but junk, let those who enjoy it use it WITH CONSIDERATION to other players. Now, if those who enjoy using them cannot, or rather will not, show due consideration, then by all means limit their use to specific locations.

Simple fix:

Shorten the 5 minute cooldown on the /movementreset command to 5 seconds and make it a hotlink in the emote menu.

But seeing that this is Cryptic we're talking about, even the most simple fix will never happen.

I'm sorry, but are you saying disco balls are breaking your immersion when you are killing T rex with lazerz on their heads, that spawn colored balls buffing you when you walk into them ?

Oh sure....
