What are the commands that I can use on the chat network?


The following are the basic commands that anyone can use in a chatroom:

/part chatroomName
Type /part devart will let you leave (part) the #devart chatroom (without closing any other chatroom you may be connected to).

/me action
Type /me runs about will produce * yourusername runs about in the chat room.

/whois username
Will show you which rooms the username is currently chatting in.

Highlighting / Nick Complete
To quickly type a username, or to make sure you type it correctly, type the first one or two letters then hit "TAB" on your keyboard to have the username automatically filled in

Type /clear to remove all of the current text from the chat window.

Type /help at any time to get to the FAQ.

/join roomname
Type /join roomname to quickly join another room. You can also simply click the +more button beside the chatroom tab to see a list of chatrooms, and then click on the name of the chatroom.

/note username
Typing /note JoeBloggs will open the notes page, so that you can send a note to the username you have specified.

/admin show users [GroupName]
Type /admin show users to show all the users who are members of all the different Groups in the chatroom. You can also type /admin show users Moderators to just show the users in the Moderator group (for example).

/admin show privclass
Type /admin show privclass to display all the different Groups in the chatroom and how they are currently setup and privileged to do things.


You can also use all the normal HTML formatting and special codes that are listed in
along with emoticons and these additional ones:

<iframe src="url" width=.. height=.. />
This allows you to display a webpage in the chat. For example, if you wanted to show google.com, you'd write <iframe src="http://www.google.com" width=100 height=100 /> and it would display the webpage in a window sized 100 x 100 pixels. To view the embedded object, you must hover your cursor over the link and click the Maximize icon next to the url.

http://www.deviantart.com (DeviantArt)
As an alternative to <a href="http://www.deviantart.com">deviantart.com</a> or simply pasting the URL, you can also use this special link code. Type: http://www.deviantart.com (DeviantArt) to display a clickable link, that says DeviantArt.

<img src="URL" />
To display an image in dAmn, use the normal HTML code <img src="URL" />. Note, again to view the embedded object, you must hover your cursor over the link and click the Maximize icon next to the url.

Type :iconUsername: to display a clickable link with the username's avatar.

Type :devUsername: to display a clickable link with the usernames's name.

These commands require that you have been given the proper privileges by the Founder of the room:

/topic topic
Sets the channel topic. (ie. /topic Welcome to #devart!)

/title title
Sets the channel title. (ie. /title Today is :devMNBot:'s birthday)

/demote username
Use this to move a user down an access level. (ie, from member to guest)

/promote username
Use this to move a user up an access level. (ie, from guest to member)

/promote username Operators
Moves a user directly into the operator access level group. This can also be used with demote, and with any level. (ie, you can also do /demote username Guest too for example).

/kick username [reason]
Removes a user from the chat. Add a reason to let the user know why they were kicked.

/ban username
This removes the user from the chat for a prolonged amount of time, until their ban is removed.

/unban username
This unbans the user by moving them from the Ban Group to the Guests Group
