I just saw Szczpan using the "/me" emote in our chat, which just prints it as it is. This got me thinking. We need LOTS of these things in our chat to make it more fun! Please list all good ones and I'll try to put them in there some day

As for emotes, you don't really need anything besides /me, as you use /me for all emotes:

/me dances

/me sings: "trololololo"

/me is using /me

So I'll just list some of my ideas for a perfect chat (some ideas have their disadvantages, like anon command)

/msg nick message content

/msg `nick` message content

/whisper, /w, /m, /pm, /priv as aliases to above

/anon anonymous message

/topic sets topic to this

/help - lists available commands

/ban, /kick, /mute for mods

BBcode tags B, I, U

automatic parsing of links www.domain.com, http://someaddress.co.uk

@nick - when put inside a message, will make the guy with that nick be pinged (if he has the webplayer opened). I also wonder, since it's the player, maybe it could smoothly increase volume for a moment to indicate the 'alert'? I really wonder how would that turn out.

/poker and K6 (and other dices) as I showed you some time ago

(x) on beginning of window title to indicate new messages since last activity in the window (or no parentheses at all if there are no new messages)

longer chat history

a link to chat archive

a longer list of emotes

also secret emotes is fun

/seen nick - when was a user last time logged in

Excellent suggestions! I will see what I can come up with during the weekend. Stuff like this is much more fun to add than bugfixes

Just a small "up" for this thread My Lord Elrond, it would be my greatest pleasure if you could turn your all-seeing eyes on the chatroom a bit more... it lacks, at the very least, a notification system, so that we know if anyone else is online and if there's any new message since we last checked. I know that you are really busy, so take your time, I just wanted to up the thread

There is also a problem, that the chat doesn't download new messages, unless it's window is active (for some time) - that makes it impossible to just have a quick look on to the chat to see if someone has wrote something.

I will have a look, I'll see what I can do during the weekend. It would be great if we could have real time notifications. I'll see what I can do. I just wanted to ease the burden on the server so we don't poll the chat every few seconds for each user. That actually makes a lot of requests if we have some users online But it would be great nevertheless!

I haven't done anything about this yet, but perhaps there is time and energy during the easter

We should now have some new emotes! You will probably need to clear your cache in order for them to show up properly.

Is there a command to know what commands are available? (/help or /commands could be a good choice)

I have tried to use some emotes (like /agree and /clap) but the chat don't let me send it, like if they aren't implemented. Only /me and /dice do its work.

I think I removed all others except /me and /dice. That way you can do what you want rather than use specific emotes
