Worse and worse, I didn't even manage to put the whole sad story in there. And it god funny, too! But somehow I truncated it.

Players have access to the following communication channels:

Game-Help - Moderated channel for OOC questions & answers,

OOC-Chat - Come here to chit chat with other players

@xcon - Listen and talk to your primary channel

xmo - Emote something (help emote)

xto - Say something to someone on a channel

xsocials - Available channel socials

xthink - Think in your channel.

@xalias - Use the alias on anonymous channels. (OOC-Chat)

@xlisten - Listen to a second channel:

xgame - Talk on the Game-Help channel

xooc - Talk on the OOC-Chat channel

@xonly - Quit all channels except .

@xsilence - Leave a channel

@xsw*itch - Change your primary channel to perform actions on it.

@xdiscon*nect - Quit listening to all channels.

NOTE: You can only emote and use socials on your primary channel.

@xcon ooc

@xlisten game

xooc talk on ooc

xgame talk on game-help

Ha

I saw the title of this thread, and before reading it, I was 80% expecting something like this:

https://www.sindome.org/bgbb/open-discussion/anything-really/ooc-chat-637/

I love how the OP explicitly leaves out the help they got from help channels where it tells them precisely how to use the channel. Helps if we read the help that comes up when we type 'help channels'.

That's what 'truncated' means. I got plenty of help, until I managed to turn off both channels when I tried to stop listening to ooc. It was a funny story, too.

But that's a strange and hostile reply, Johnny, and sours me on the game (despite the very kind help of players). Because oddly enough, I read 'help channels' several times. I come from other games, which work differently, and didn't understand the helpfile. Hence my questions.

Enjoy your game!
