Using the chat, and all its features.

Flockmod has a chat located on the top bar. Anyone of any rank can use it. You can use it to talk to everyone in the room.

Features:

Normal chat: Displays a message to all users in the room, all messages in the chat relay a preview of the message in the top bar. Anyone with their chat closed will receive a distinct sound unless they have the sound disabled in the config. 

Notes
  • Typing http:// before a link will turn it to a hyperlink.
  • Right clicking inside the chat will display a context menu allowing you to clear the chat.
  • No sounds will ever be played if the chat is left open.

Private message: To PM (private message) a user, right click their name in the userlist, or type /PM {username} into the chat, then type your message. Nobody, regardless of rank, will be able to read the message you sent except for the user you chose. Once they have replied to you, you can push the up arrow on your keyboard to quick reply back.

Mentions: If another user mentions your username, it will be colored orange in their message. If your chat is closed, you will also receive a Private Message sound, which can be disabled in config by disabling the Private Message option.


Moderator Chat:
If you have the correct privilege, you may send a Moderator Message that only those with the correct privilege can see. Do this by switching Public Chat to Moderator Chat in the dropdown menu. Anyone who can read the message will receive a distinct sound.

Note

You can also use the /MM command before your sentence to send a Moderator Message, so you don’t forget to switch back to public chat.


Spam
protection: The chat comes with spam protection, if a user spams too many messages too quick, whether public or PM they will be auto-ignored.

Ignore: If someone is disturbing you in some way you can right click on their name in the userlist and select ‘ignore user’, and you will no longer receive messages from them in the chat until either of you reenter the room. If the problem persists you should seek the help of a moderator.
