I was on this other server and they had this really amazing feature where you could chat server wide and when new players would join the server, it would announce in bold flashy font that there was a new player. I thought this was an amazing feature because I noticed that it was promoting more of a togetherness feeling amongst the players and staff because the higher ranks were able to be connected to all of the players. The new player message promoted the other players to "welcome" the new players because it worked like a chain reaction. One person would simply be polite and say, "Welcome (new player name)" and then others would follow suit. I'm not sure how simple it would be to implement this feature but I thought it was really warming to first join a server and not feel excluded or alone.
