Inline commands:

  • // at the beginning of the room will automatically turn the message into an Out of Character expression by adding parenthesis around the message.e.g.: "//Hi Everyone!" becomes "(( Hi Everyone! ))"
  • !#d# is the comment for dice rolling. For example, !3d6 would be to roll three six sided dices. It can be any where in the message. Each message, however, can only have one dice command. Dice are limited to at most 9 at a time, and at most 256 sides. There is no +/- modifier support at the moment.
  • /look <charactername> will open up a new window to show you that person's profile. e.g. "/look celestia"

Chat FAQ:

Q: My profile image is not updating after I upload a new one!
A: Try clear cache or use Ctrl-F5 to refresh the profile.

Q: How do I make new character?
A: Exactly how you make the first one! Just click on "create new character" again.

Q: I keep getting log out randomly / I can not receive whisper!
A: It can due to various reasons...

  • If you are on mobile device - This chat does not actually support those, but any stand by, changing IP, etc, can cause your character to get logged off
  • If you are having log off problem after getting a whisper, check your flash installation or firewall / anti-virus. Flashblock or ad block or improper installation of flash can causes problem with whisper and causes log out. Try disable those add ons to help investigation.
