2. Send a PM to this member
3. Show yourself as Away (a popup window will ass you to give a reason, it's up to you to fill in this field or not)
4. Leave the ChatBox (a popup wiindow will ask you to give a reason, it's up to you to fill in this field or not)
5. Kick a member (depends on the permissions)
6. Ban a member (depends on the permissions)
7. Give him the moderationi status (depends on the permissions)

Mini-FAQ

Who are the members with the @ ? These are members who can use the ChatBox moderation commands.


My parameters (bold, colors, etc.) aren't saved. These parameters are saved using Cookies, so make sure your browser accepts Cookies.

Why am I disconnected after a refresh (F5) / Why aren't we automatically connected ?
A Technician wrote: This process is necessary. Otherwise, a person who comes on the homepage without wanting to use the ChatBox will see his page being regularly refreshed for nothing... This makes the servers, your machine, etc. work for nothing.

Only the chatbox is refreshed, but this is using some database and then, sends requests, so this consumes server loading uselessly for some cases.

So, when you access the homepage (or portal), the chatbox stays (and will stay) logged off.
