Chat Commands

 Make Friends

/mak or /mak -

Alamak Make Friends!!! This is a very popular option on Alamak to help you get aquianted with new chatters who you might like to know.

Type /mak and you will be given a form with 3 catagories to choose. Choose your catagories and submit the form and you will get a list of compatible chatters. They will also get a notice as a private message if you are compatible with their interests. As new people use /mak you will get notices if they are in your catagory of chatter preferences.

  1. Male looking for Female, Female looking for Male, Male looking for Any etc ...
  2. Looking for Mature or Young chatters
  3. Looking for Any Chat or Clean Chat Only


Use /mak at any time to view the list of compatible chatters also using /mak or /mak - to disable.

 Frames Mode

/fr

Frames can be toggled on and off using the /fr command. Using frames is a better way to chat because it autorefreshes and works faster. The Frames Mode page has more on the benefits of frames. No-frames is provided for old browsers that do not support the latest HTML and for WebTV users.

 Scroll Back

/sb or /sb [text] or /sb [room]

This command will search the last 60 lines and display those that contain the supplied [text]. The [text] can contain only A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and _. If no [text] option is supplied the default is to display all 60 lines in the scroll back buffer. You can also do a /sb [room] to display the last 60 lines in a different room.

 View Old Messages

/mold

This will show your old incomming and outgoing private messages up to 5,000 characters. Very useful to confirm if your message was sent or if you left and want to see messages sent while you were away (frames mode autorefreshes so you stay logged in). The command /mold stands for Messages Old or easily remembered as Mouldy Old Messages.

 Forward Messages

/forward [op_nickname]

Forward should be used in cases of harassment in private messages.

To report harassment, first see which Operators are online by using "/whois #". Pick an Operator from this list and forward the messages. For example if Methos is an Operator you would type /forward Methos and all your private messages will be forwarded to Operator Methos for review.

If the situation warrants, Methos will either /kick, /ban, or talk to the person who is harassing, depending on the severity. If it is an Operator who is causing problems, /forward the private messages to a different Operator who will then do an /abuse and or /com report so the Operator Committee can take further action if necessary.

 Auto-Reply

/auto [long reply message] and /auto and /auto -

Operators auto-reply is saved, Ops can type /pref to make sure the current /auto is saved for next time they login.

The /auto command sets an auto-reply. When you first send a message to another user you will get their auto-reply if you have not sent a message to them before. If you change nick or relogin and send them a message again you will again get their auto-reply.

Use it as /auto [your long autoreply message], or just /auto by itself to see what your current auto-reply is set as. Finally you can use /auto - to erase your auto-reply.

This is usefull for Ops who want to say they don't have color to /give or for an introduction but Ops also have access to an /intro command. Ops auto-reply is saved in thier preferences so when they log back in it is enabled to the last setting saved in the preferences.

 Set Comment

/comment [text]

When you first log into the chat, the comment area is empty. To enter a comment, or to change the comment, type /comment [new_comment] (limited to 30 characters). The comment shows up on a /who display.

 Set Introduction

/intro [intro message] or /intro [nick] or /intro -

The /intro command sets an intro, somewhat like an auto-reply.

Use it as /intro [your introduction]. You can then type /intro and a link will be provided, click on a users nickname in your message buffer then the link and it will fill in your auto-reply. Alternatively type /intro [nick] and it will send your intro to that nick. Use /intro by itself to view your intro and /intro - to disable.

Ops intro is saved in thier preferences.

 Send a File

/send [nick]

The /send command can be used to send files to other Alamakians. It is quite simple and works by allowing web based file upload to a blackbox directory. You can retrieve files from the blackbox but can't see the names of files there unless someone sends it to you. The box is flushed once a day at midnight. If the file already exists and has been uploaded you will get a notice that it has already been recieved.

Alamak is not in any way responsible for files uploaded or recieved through Alamak, and these files may contain viruses or material objectional or inappropriate for some users. Sometimes in the past regulars users even sent illegal materials though the file upload. We have now limited this problem by only allowing regular users who get authorization from Alamak Operators and Operators themselves to upload and by flushing the blackbox frequently.

Users can send files to Alamak Operators, type /send [nick] and the Operator will get a notice that you wish to send a file. The Operator can choose to ignore your request or permit you to upload 1 file. You will then get a notice and link to click to begin upload. Click on that and you get the upload form. It's pretty simple actually. After the upload the page will auto-refresh and send a notice and link for the Operator to download/view the file. The Operator can click on the link to download and view or ignore the link (since files may contain viruses or objectional material.

Alamak Operators can upload and send files to any user without authorization. Just type /send [nick] to get the upload form, once uploaded it will auto-refresh and send a link to download/view the file to [nick].

 Picture Link

/pic [URL]

Operators can set a picture link at any time, regualr users must get a /grant before they can use /pic.

The /pic command is used to link your nickname to a picture of yourself. The URL is some web address where you have a picture like /pic http://www.myhostname.com/mydirectory/mypicture.jpg.

You can also upload your file using the /send command. This is usually for /sending files to your friends but with a little cleverness can be used for /pic.

You need an Ops approval to /send the file so first /send [nick] where you send a file to an Ops nick, then they approve the send and you send the file to that Op.

Alternatively you can get a Ops to type /allow [me] where [me] is your nickame, this will allow you to upload.

Note new filename as recieved by our server then type /pic http://woah.alamak.com/upload/filename.jpg if the file was called filename.jpg. For Server SG you'll have to use /pic http://alamak.com.sg//upload/filename.jpg.

 Read BBoard

/read

The /read command allows you to read the public bulletin board. Only Ops can post messages on this board. The board is not always available depending on current server policy.

 Chat Mail

/mail [op_nickname] [message]

The /mail command sends a chat mail (CMAIL) message to an Operator. The Operator does not need to be on-line when you send the message. The mail will stay in their mail box until it is read.

Operators also have access to the /mailset which allows the Operator to generically accept chat mail from Users, Registered Users, or Ops as well as block chat mail from specific Ops or Registered Users. Currently (Jun/2003) only users registered via the Alamak Client are able to use chat mail.
