Where to Type Commands
You type all commands in the same box you type messages to other users. If the very first character you type is a forward slash (/), then it will recognize it as a command, not a message to other users, and it will NOT display the command to other users in the chat room.
Registering Your Nickname
You can register your nickname so that others cannot use it and impersonate you. You only have to do this one time. Here is the command you type:
/ns register YourPassword Your@Email.com
When you come back to the network with the same nickname you registered, you MUST "identify" yourself, or prove that that nick is yours, by putting in your password. To do this, you type:
Changing Your Nickname
You can change your nickname by simply typing:
Grouping Your Nicknames
If you choose to have multiple nicknames, you shouldn't register each one individually. What you should do is register one, and group all your other nicks with that one nick. To do so, you would type:
/ns group OriginalNick YourPasswordMany people use this feature to make it clear they're away. For example, if your nickname is Wolf, when you go away, you might want to make it Wolf|Away. In this case, you can type /nick Wolf|Away to change it, then group it (you only need to group nicks 1 time). To do so, you would type:
/ns group Wolf YourPassword
Setting Yourself as Away
When you go away, you can type:
/away Your away message here
Returning From Away
To come back from "Away" status, simply type:
/awayWhen you don't give an away message, that'll indicate that you're coming back from away, not actually going away.
Getting More Info on a User
You can get some basic info on a user by doing a "whois" on the, by typing:
/whois Username"Username" is the user you want to find out more about.
Sending a Private Message
You can send private messages to users. To create a new tab where you can chat with that user privately, type the following command:
Getting a List of Channels (Chat Rooms)
You can see a list of pre-existing channels on the network by typing:
Entering a Channel (Chat Room)
It's very easy to enter a channel. All you have to do is type the following command:
/join #ChannelAll channels begin with the pound (#) sign. You can use this command to enter a pre-existing channel, or create your own!
Creating Your Own Channel
It's easy to create your own channel! First, you must have a registered nickname. Then, you must join that channel (see how above). Then, the last thing you need to do is register the channel. The command is as follows:
/cs register #ChannelName Channel DescriptionThe channel description is optional. Here's an example of how this command can be used:
/cs register #CoolChat Come to chat about whatever you'd like
If You Still Have Questions
You can join #help and ask. Enjoy!
