Semi-Protection C.Syde's Wiki Favicon


C.Syde's Wiki Chat is a real-time chat where users are able to chat in an open environment.

Accessing Chat

To access Chat, click the "Form a Club" button below.

See our chat policy here.

Alternatively you can access from anywhere on the wiki you can see this widget or by typing Special:Chat into the search bar/URL bar.

Chat hacks have been enabled on C.Syde's Wiki, so that you can customise ping phrases that will attract your attention, if other users in the chat say any of your ping phrases.

You also have control over the tag which differentiates a user who is away from a user who is not away. If you have not posted anything in the chat in a certain amount of time, you will automatically be tagged as "away".

Having this status will cause your username in the chat room to appear in grey lettering, and the words "On holiday" will appear underneath.

Rules

There is an official rule-set for Chat which can be viewed here. Failure to follow the policy may result in a warning, kick or a ban from Chat.

In short, use your common sense and treat others how you wish to be treated. Then everyone will get along nicely and drama/conflict is kept to a minimum. If you happen to witness something you shouldn't then tell a chat moderator (listed with a badge next to their name) via a private message.

Private messaging

Private messages are conversations between you and one other user. If you are in a private message room with someone, you have the ability to stop receiving their private messages by selecting "block private messages" in their username menu. This setting is permanent and Wikia-wide until you select "Allow private messages" from their menu in the general chat room.

Chat moderators

Users in Chat with a badge next to their name are known as chat moderators. By default, this includes administrators and discussion moderators although some other users who have either asked a member of the administration team to be promoted or were approached by an administrator and promoted may also appear as Chat moderators. These users are able to kick and ban users who may be engaging in disruptive behaviour.

You can find out more about chat moderators here while requesting these rights here.

Unbanning users

If a user is banned from the chat, an administrator, discussion moderator, or chat moderator can unban directly from the chat, or by going to the user's contributions page and clicking on unban. They will be instantly unbanned and allowed to participate in the chat.

Administrators can only ban chat moderators, discussion moderators, and other administrators inside the chat, since they don't have the option to do this by going to the user's contributions. If an administrator bans another administrator from chat, the banned administrator can unban themselves by going to their contributions and clicking on unban.

Chat moderators and discussion moderators can only ban other chat moderators and discussion moderators inside the chat, since they don't have the option to do this by going to the user's contributions. If a chat moderator or discussion moderator bans another chat moderator or discussion moderator from chat, the banned chat moderator or discussion moderator can unban themselves by going to their contributions and clicking on unban.

Chat moderators and discussion moderators cannot unban themselves if the user who banned them is an administrator or staff. However they can remove bans issued by administrators if the banned user does not have administrator or chat moderator status.

"Me" action

A feature in chat, borrowed from IRC, is the "/me" action. If a user (for example: YourName) preceded an entry in chat with "/me", it would render specially:

/me is going to the movies.

would appear as:

* YourName is going to the movies.
