    Why is this not yet a thing? It's so easily integrated... come on Dev's. Not like you've got anything better to do than.. ehm... your job...

    I might have a solution:
    As I understand, you want to add roles for a group of people but some roles have the same permissions. It's the same for me, but what I do is I put them in a special group, let's call a group "Talker" for all the roles who have the permission to talk. Then, I'll give them both permissions but only the "talker" role is actually doing something, the other roles are just for display, just something to tell the others he has this role. I don't know if you understand what I say

    That's not quite all of what we are looking for as a whole. In larger servers we would require multiples of the exact same permission because the same permission group gets nested under various chat tabs. You see this become more evident I'm servers with patreon tiers or competitive online gaming guild servers where you have both a verbal and non verbal permission group listed for specific events such as raiding groups generals and soldiers, etc and only certain permission tiers are allowed to talk or even view specific channels. Technically the same could be accomplished by assigning the tier as a second perm but its far slower and mor clunky and eventually you may still end up requiring more than one copy of the group depending on manual or bot assignment etc. Would also limits the functionality of the role sync as you would also have to go and manually adjust the roll order time and time again to make sure the highest rolls were set before the lower in the higharchy rather than having a general role that fulfils the function

     

    A better example is my server is currently having to do just that. I have one permision role for speaking in channels and one for each time frame of gameplay. In each 8 hour span of normal play we have 3 team leaders and assign them each group members based on play time so they bond and grow with each other and always have people to turn to.

     

    As it stands just for one server for one guild just to set up one chat folder its

    3 Time periods of play spanning roughly 8 hours. An officer role a general role and a speaking vs non speaking role

    7 role to manage just for controlling 3 groups.

    This is the quickest method imo its also very time consuming I would neec to make 3 sets of the same roles just to accomplish the base role tree this is also assuming I don't have more than one group of players participating in various tasks such as multi game servers, event servers, patreon tiers and alliance should I choose to create or host an alliance servers. 

     

    I'm my SWtoR server there are 3 Guild Alliance server each with thier own areas as well as Alliance chats for when we do PvE content and each needs Duplicate Rolls with Duplicate perms.

    The roles include, Jedi/Sith, Class (8 for each side which gives comprehensive guides to newbies), Crafting, Gear MinMaxing, Warzone groups, Officers/Generals (Both chats and permission groups), Questions groups across the time frames as well as raid teams pvp training teams etc.

    To be honest the Duplicate role/perm button is a neccessity simply to ease the creation of what honestly shouldn't need to be remaid 30 times
