Chatbox

Post by Mooncow » Tue Jan 04, 2011 10:22 am

This is taken mostly from a bunch of other topics, and also Fusion's chatbox announcement.

The Chatbox can be accessed from the links at the bottom or top of the forum, and also from the main site in the right navigational bar. Features are as follows:

Private Messaging:
This can be done using /msg
/msg username message
(this was previously done by using /pm which will be readded shortly)
e.g /msg Mooncow I love you.

Action Emotes:
by using /me or /action
e.g /me is a Chaos Cow will display "Mooncow is a Chaos Cow"

Channels:
These have been removed, as they just led to confusion, made it harder to find people, and made the chatbox harder for moderators to look after.

/roll command:
This has been against the rules for a while, and has now been removed.

/away command:
Once upon a time the chatbox allowed users to set themselves away via an /away command. This feature has now been reimplemented and is free to be used. Simply select "Go away" from the left menu or type /away, and you will have an [Away] tag placed next to your name. To remove it, just select "Come back" from the left menu, type /away again, or submit any message. You're welcome to test it while it's new, but please do not spam this — you will be punished if you do. Use it sensibly.

Direct Conversation:
Chatbox messages directed at you ("@ Your-Username" or whispers to you) are now highlighted in a light pink. Chatbox messages that you post are now coloured a light purple. This was added because the chatbox can be very hard to follow when it's busy, and this helps to see your own messages and when people are talking to you. Please keep in mind that these colours are subject to change. Feel free to give feedback about how they look!

Please note that if you do not see these changes, you simply need to refresh your cache. Hitting F5 while in the chatbox will probably do the trick.

Chatbox Themes:
Themes have been added to the chatbox! You may now choose from the default "Chao" theme, or the new "Hero" and "Dark" themes. Feel free to give feedback about the new themes. Also, thanks to JmTsHaW for his chatbox recolours, which were used as guidelines for these themes.

Please note that if you do not see these changes, you simply need to refresh your cache. Hitting F5 while in the chatbox will probably do the trick.

See the following screenshot for how to change your theme, and for an example of the new colours:

Private channels =////////= removed channels

Private channels are for chatting with other users by yourselves. That's why they weren't removed. They have almost nothing to do with the other channels that were removed.

@Dawgie: LOL! That's just an option that everything you post at that moment goes to the person you opened it at. Basically, if you're having a conversation with someone trough whispers, and not in the normal chat, you can just click that isntead of send pm all the time.

It's just that there isn't much traffic on the forums.

I started that Plug.DJ room, I guess...
