Lobby Revamp

In Lobby, we're working towards a new experiment with the room ranks (+, %, @), implementing them wholly. Chatters who consistently influence good and intelligent discussion will now have a good chance to earn these ranks. There's no set discussion topic required, and we hope to converse with you guys, whether it's Pokémon discussion or anything related to casual talk!
