New Chatroom

As you may have seen a new chatroom has been implemented, moving away from the previous Jappix fasebook'esque implementation. You may find the link to the Chatroom on the top bar listed as 'Chatroom', or alternatively at the below link:

http://www.vigilantforums.com/chat.php

It is also inevitable that there will be a few quirks here and there, and so should you come across any bugs do let the team know. As always the chatroom is a user only feature so for the guests lurking, register!

Thank you.

There are three sections to the Chat, Navigation, User List / Commands, and Settings.

Navigation

Logout: When you're done using the Chat for the day, please press the Logout button before closing the tab.
Channel: Here, you can select your channel. There is one main public room for now only.
    Public - The main channel, use this one for general chatting.
    Private [NAME] - Create a private channel with your name contained in it. This is a locked channel that others cannot join. If you wish to have someone join you, type /invite NAME while inside your channel. To make someone no longer able to join your channel, type /uninvite NAME.
Style: This sets the color scheme of the chat. The default is the vigilant forum theme which is the only one for now, though I may consider a contrast black theme for accessibility.
Language: English only

Commands

Navigation: These are the commands involving navigation of the channels.
    /join CHANNEL - Joins a CHANNEL. You can only join the main channels, or a Private_[CHANNEL] that you've been invited to.
    /join - Joins your own Private_[CHANNEL] without having to type it out.
    /quit - A command shortcut that logs you out.
    /invite - Invites someone to join the channel you are in. Also allows someone to join your Private_[CHANNEL].
    /uninvite - Only useful involving Private_[CHANNEL]s, removing someone from your channel or otherwise removing their ability to join.
    /whereis NAME - Lists the location of NAME.
    /who CHANNEL - Lists the members currently in CHANNEL.
    /list - Prints out a clickable list of the channels.
Communication: These are the commands involving communication with other members of the forum currently in the Chat.
    /msg - This is the command for sending someone a private message, or whisper. If someone messages you with (whispers), please respond to them with /msg instead of to the main chat.
    /query NAME - This command will open a private messaging 'channel' to the listed person. This means that all of your messages will go to NAME as whispers.
    /query - This command will close a private messaging 'channel' that you have up, allowing you to talk in the normal channel again.
    /action or /me - This command will perform an emote of the text you describe.
    /describe NAME - This command sends an emote as a whisper to NAME.
    /ignore NAME - This command will place NAME on ignore, hiding their messages and whispers. If you are already ignoring NAME, it will unignore them.
    /ignore - This command lists the users you currently have on ignore.
    /roll or /roll #d# - This command will roll a d6 die, or a value of dice you input. Please do not overuse this feature.
    /nick NAME - This command will change your user name for the current session to (NAME). Useful for flavorful RPs.

Settings Buttons

2. Settings: Second of the 5 buttons in the bottom right. Shows the settings panel where you can adjust the chat settings.

    Enable font color BBCode - Uncheck this to return everyone's text to default colors.
    Enable hyperlinks - Uncheck this to disable hyperlinks.

Ok I see it now as well in a new browser and clean cache.

Looking into it...
