The ChatBox Guide to Commands and Rules

Post by Rosalina on Sun Jan 26, 2014 11:16 pm



The chatbox is an essential feature of the Nintendo Forum Site and is an area where members would settle down to chat and discuss about various things. Whether they be funny or serious, the chatbox is an area of the forum that most members should be familiar with and this guide should provide some assistance to users who aren't too familiar with the chatbox commands that can be performed.

Arrow  Remember, that none of these commands are mandatory to use. They are just fun extras that you can utilize during your chatbox sessions.

Alas, let's begin.



THE BASIC CHATBOX COMMANDS

Arrow The Away status:
*This command will make your status to be "Away" on the chatbox. Use this whenever you're not active or when you're absent on the chatbox (if you wish).

Type in either of the following to get the Away status:
Code:
/away

or

/abs

Arrow Writing in 3rd person:
*This command will allow you to write in third person perspective. For example, if I use this code it will show up as "Zero Revolution understands the rules!" if I was to type "/me understands the rules!" on the chatbox.

Type in the following code  to write in 3rd person perspective:
Code:
/me

Arrow Exiting the chatbox without using the log out button
*Use this code to exit the chatbox without the use of the log out button.

Type in the following code to perform this action:
Code:
/exit


Other Chatbox Commands?

*The commands I listed above are the commands that are known to be accessible by members. Yes, there are other chatbox commands such as the /kick, /ban, /mod, /unmod, /banlist, /cls, and /clear (the chatbox) commands; however, these commands are only available to the chatbox moderators (users with @ icon in front of their names on the chatbox). Please understand that these commands are exclusive to the Nintendo Forum Site Staff (Admins and Global Mods) and they are expected to be used appropriately.



Basic buttons of the chatbox:

Arrow The information below for the button guide is borrowed from Forumotion.com.

1. The refresh button allows you to manually refresh the ChatBox.
2. The checkbox Auto-refresh allows you to have the ChatBox automatically refreshed.
3. The archives button allows you to see older posts (unless the messages have been cleared).
4. The log-in/logout buttons is used to log-in or log-out from the ChatBox.
5. The button B allows you to put your text in bold format.
6. The button I allows you to put your text in italic format.
7. The button U allows you to underline your text.
8. The button S allows you to strike your text.
9. This button allows you to change the color of your text.
10. This button allows you to insert smilies in your texts.
11. This is where you post the contents of your message.

12. This button allows you to change the height of your Chatbox.



Basic BBCodes usage in the chatbox:

Arrow How to put an image/pic into the chatbox?
If you'd like to place an image into the chatbox, use the following code:


Code:
[img]insert your image url/link right here[/img]


Arrow How to put an external link into the chatbox?
If you'd like to put an external link into the chatbox, use the following code:

Code:
[url]insert your link url here[/url]
Arrow How to place a spoiler tag into the chatbox?
If you want to place a spoiler tag into the chatbox, use the following code:

Code:
[spoiler]insert text right here[/spoiler]



THE CHATBOX RULES

Here in the Nintendo Forum Site, we have provided the chatbox as an opportunity for you, as the users, to utilize and discuss about various topics with your fellow forum users. However, please be advised that we do have rules for the chatbox as well. They may be similar to our general rules; however, please take the time to read through them.

1. Do NOT abuse the Chatbox Commands and the BBCode system. Chatbox Commands and the BBCodes are fun to use but if you think you ever going to abuse it. Please don't because why would you abuse the Chatbox Command and the BBCode system? Be sure to use the Chatbox Commands and the BBCode for your fun purposes, but not for spamming/trolling or anything stupid.

2. Be respectful to your fellow members. Avoid talking about other users from behind their backs and please do not say anything inappropriate about users either when they're present on the chatbox or away from it. If we, the Nintendo Forum Site staff, spot anything hurtful in the chatbox directed towards other users, we won't hesitate to give warning kicks or even bans (depending on how serious the situation is).

3. Do NOT ask or beg for chatbox powers. Chatbox moderators are given their powers to keep some control over the chatbox. Only users who've deserved their status to be chatbox moderators (which is TNFS Global Moderators and Admins) will be given powers (as they're expected to use their powers wisely). Please don't try to beg or ask for these powers just to utilize additional chatbox commands for troll/stupid purposes. You're not going to get these powers this way.

4. Avoid spamming on the chatbox. A rule that most people will ignore, but it has to be mentioned. Please avoid spamming repeated messages, emoticons/similes, etc. on the chatbox. Only use the chatbox when you have something worthwhile to say. Spamming in the ChatBox can lead to a ban from using it.

5. Avoid changing your text color into something that we can't see your message. Do not use bloody gore text colors that blends the forums chatbox. It may cause seizures and it will hurt the members eyes. Also no, we're not going to highlight your unreadable text. Simply just change your text color into something that the members can see what are you trying to say!

Did someone ask you to write this? XD

You cleared everything up for others.
I knew all this stuff anyway.

I asked Zero/Razor permission if I could write this and he said yes.

Knowledge is power! Even if you already know it. : )
