Chat Post Icons
Chat posts can contain the following icons:
This image indicates that the chat occupant's dossier is available for viewing. Simply click on this icon to view the dossier.
This icon means that the chat occupant has received an award within the past week. Click on the icon to learn more about the award and what the site member did to earn it.
This icon indicates that the chat occupant received a promotion in the past week. Click on the icon to learn more about what it takes to earn a promotion to the member's clearance level.
This icon indicates that the officer has quarters at Outpost 10F. Quarters are paid web accounts which members may purchase. Through clicking on the icon you can view the member's quarters homepage.
This icon indicates that the officer has a blog at Outpost 10F. Blogs are features of some web accounts which members may purchase. Through clicking on the icon you can view the member's blog.
There are two input boxes used by our chatrooms. The large box is the chat box. This is where you type the content of the message you wish to send to the chat board. The smaller "To:" box is where you can put the name of the person you are sending the message to.
Special Avatars and IPs
You may have noticed that some members have been able to use their own avatar and replace their IP address with a text string. This is a privilege that is available to those with a clearance level of at least 7.
Only those with a clearance level of 6 and above may use HTML in their chat posts. HTML allows one to change the color, face, and formatting of their posts in addition to including images and other goodies.
