IRC style commands now active, Public Private coming soon

Hey everyone-
We have been working non stop on the tons of feature requests/bugfixes that have been reported to us and we are making great progress. In the next few days we will be rolling out a “public / private” homepage which will let you browse through public tinychat rooms. You may have noticed that when you create a tinychat room lately, it asks you for a title and if its public or not. If you choose to make your chat public, it will show up in our directory (including the text chats) and users can join at will. You can still have private chats that will not be listed or stored as well.

Additionally, we just rolled out /commands which lets you have some additional options that have been requested. Just a note that we are going to also be rolling out IP bans + nickname protection which will make dealing with trolls much easier. Please find below current commands.

Tinychat commands
/color (changes the color of your chat)
/nick nickname (changes your nickname)
/me is talking about self in the third person (nuf said)
/topic this is the room topic (changes the room topic, if you are a room operator)
/msg nickname this is private (sends a private message to another user in the room)
/ignore nickname (blocks their chat messages from appearing on your screen)
/ban nickname (kicks and bans the user from the room, if you are a room operator)
/banlist (displays the ban/forgive list, if you are a room operator)

Also, We are listening to all of you that want to whitelabel/embed tinychat with more options. Please rest assured this is a key element we are focusing on and have some very exciting things in the works for you all. The amount of customization and tweaking you can do to the new embed in paralell with our awesome API is going to blow you all away.

Stay tuned….

    Please add the ability to add another room operator in the non pro rooms, when I leave I want the ability to have someone in control of the room.

    In IRC parlance that would be giving someone else chanop status.

    Thanks.

    I’m being forced to log into twitter and when I do I can’t change my nick from my twitter account name.

    It is very very very very very very very annoying.

    Thank you for the chan op status though.
