The LummuxJR chat page

And here is JR chat. Borrowed from his page. (with his permission of course.)

For instructions on using this chat, information on how to put it on your own page, and some guidelines for use, read below. Chat newbies--read below for important info on chat Nettiquette.
You must have Java enabled to use this chat applet.


JRchat currently has two rooms, though additional can be created as needed by a SysOp:

  • Creatures - Creatures or Creatures 2 chat, and pretty much anything related to it.
  • Creatures RPG - I know some users like to play-act as Norns and whatnot, so I made this room especially for that purpose.

Guidelines and Netiquette

Unlike ICE chat, this chat does have operators who will, when present, keep things orderly. Go ahead and chat freely, but just remember that manners count. These are some important things you should know:

  • Never scroll. Scrolling is when a person types line after line of garbage, or makes extremely long lines of text which wrap around and take up several lines. Either way, the text scrolls up, making it hard for people to read. For such an offense, an op may kick or gag without warning.
  • Please watch the language. Most people are good about this, but it's important. Pretty much anything PG-rated is fine, but true vulgarity is another matter.
  • Don't shout constantly. Shouting is when a user types in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS.
  • No stat questions, please. This means things like "How old are you?", "What sex?", "Where do you live?", etc. To a certain extent a question put to someone you know, or done via private message, is all right, but don't ask general "Age/sex everyone?" questions.
  • Don't poll. Polling is a question like "If you like dogs press 1"--anything that asks a question of everyone in the room and demands a specific response. Polling is annoying beyond belief.

Commands and how to use them

Most of the commands are similar to the ones used in ICE, but here's the list.

Regular commands
.quitLeaves the chat. This command isn't necessary to log out.
.join <room>Joins a room. Unlike in ICE, you cannot create your own rooms--you must join an existing room.
.me <action>Emote (i.e., "Bob looks around.")
.msg <name(s)> <message>Send private message; separate names with commas, but no spaces, for multiple messages at once.
.who [room]See the user list of a room (the current room is the default).
.whois <name>Get information about a user.
.whereis <name>Find a user.
.usersSee the complete user list.
.roomsSee a list of rooms.
.roominfo [room]Get information about a room.
.ignore <name>
.unignore <name>
Ignore/unignore a user. (This is based on IP address, so you can ignore someone for good.)
.ignorelistSee a list of users you are ignoring.
.isignoring <name>Find out if someone is ignoring you.
.banlistSee a list of banned and kicked addresses.
.isgagged [name]Find out if you or someone else are gagged.

.iplookup <IP>Shows a list of users with a given IP address.
.ignorebyip <IP>Ignores someone with a given IP address.
SysOp/TempOp commands
.kick <name>Kick a user out of chat temporarily. (TempOps can only kick users in their own room.)
.keepout <name>
.unkeepout <name>
.keepoutbyip <IP>
Keep a user out of the room--they are still free to enter other rooms. .unkeepout readmits the user. (TempOps can only keep users out of their own room, temporarily.)
SysOp-only commands
.gag <name>
.ungag <name>
Keeps a user from speaking; ungag allows them to talk again.
.ban <IP>
.unban <IP>
Bans or unbands an IP address. Partial IPs (i.e., "123.204.99") may be used.
.op <name>
.deop <name>
Makes another user a TempOp, or revokes TempOp status.
.permroom <room>
.unpermroom <room>
Creates a new, permanent room, or makes a room temporary again. Rooms that are always permanent can't be modified.
.setroom <item>=<value>
.unsetroom <item>
Sets data about the room, such as "Topic=Weather". Rooms that are always permanent can't be modified.

Using this applet on your page

Yes, you are free to use this applet on your own Creatures site. In fact, I encourage it. You will need the following HTML code, plus any changes you may decide to add (parameters listed below):

<PARAM NAME="Room" VALUE="Creatures">

Other parameters you can add include:

<PARAM NAME="Font" VALUE="font name">
<PARAM NAME="Fontsize" VALUE="font size">
Set the name or size of the font to use. 12 is the default font size, "Dialog" the default font. "TimesRoman", "Arial", and "Helvetica" may be other good fonts to use.
Specify the foreground or background colors for the chat. These are in the same hexadecimal format used in HTML--for example, "FF0000" is red.
<PARAM NAME="Name" VALUE="name">
<PARAM NAME="Password" VALUE="password">
Automatically log in under your preferred name and/or password--good for a page saved to your local hard disk, though I wouldn't put this on your Web page.
And of course, the WIDTH and HEIGHT are yours to toy with--make the applet the size you want.
