Guidelines and Netiquette

Unlike ICE chat, this chat does have operators who will, when present, keep things orderly. Go ahead and chat freely, but just remember that manners count. These are some important things you should know:

Commands and how to use them

Most of the commands are similar to the ones used in ICE, but here's the list

Regular commands
.quit Leaves the chat. This command isn't necessary to log out.
.join Joins a room. Unlike in ICE, you cannot create your own rooms--you must join an existing room.
.me Emote (i.e., "Bob looks around.")
.msg Send private message; separate names with commas, but no spaces, for multiple messages at once.
.who [room] See the user list of a room (the current room is the default).
.whois Get information about a user.
.whereis Find a user.
.users See the complete user list.
.rooms See a list of rooms.
.roominfo [room] Get information about a room.
Ignore/unignore a user. (This is based on IP address, so you can ignore someone for good.)
.ignorelist See a list of users you are ignoring.
.isignoring Find out if someone is ignoring you.
.banlist See a list of banned and kicked addresses.
.isgagged [name] Find out if you or someone else are gagged.
.keepoutlist See a list of people who are not allowed in the room.
.iplookup Shows a list of users with a given IP address.
.ignorebyip Ignores someone with a given IP address.
SysOp/TempOp commands
.kick Kick a user out of chat temporarily. (TempOps can only kick users in their own room.)
Keep a user out of the room--they are still free to enter other rooms. .unkeepout readmits the user. (TempOps can only keep users out of their own room, temporarily.)
SysOp-only commands
Keeps a user from speaking; ungag allows them to talk again.
Bans or unbands an IP address. Partial IPs (i.e., "123.204.99") may be used.
Makes another user a TempOp, or revokes TempOp status.
Creates a new, permanent room, or makes a room temporary again. Rooms that are always permanent can't be modified.
.setroom =
Sets data about the room, such as "Topic=Weather". Rooms that are always permanent can't be modified.
