#Fastcookies and Cross-Chan Messaging

TetriNETDue to some persistant requests, there are a couple of changes on the server..

Firstly, #fastcookies winlist now behaves like the #cookies winlist. Meaning that it has a separate section for teams as well as players.

Secondly, cross-channel messaging has been a hot debated feature request... So... here is the implementation that has been chosen:

To send a cross channel message, you would use the /xmsg command.
eg. /xmsg #idle 1 Hey person in slot 1 in #idle!

To get a person's slot# in a channel, the /who command has been altered to accept a channel argument.
eg. /who #idle

And finally, if you wish to not receive any private messages, you would use the /setmsg command.
eg. /setmsg off

And substitute 'off' with 'on' to turn it back on. (default).

Hope this makes those people who requested these features happy. Enjoy.

i too think the new chan commands will be useful.

What about adding a /shout whereby a player can "shout" across channels? This feature works well in dome, and can help bring players to a channel, instead of waiting for ppl to join.

As discussed on the forum, that would be way too much server spam, really not what .org was or .us is about...
