    Lightbulb Just Another Chat Room Suggestions Thread

    Chat rooms will be the center of communication within communities for Dota 2 players. Many of these ideas come from IRC, so I might be overdoing it. Any feedback is welcome.

    The Commands
    • /join: Joins a room. If it doesn't exist, creates one.
    • /leave <room> or /part <room>: leave active room or leave room specified
    • /register: Registers a room and makes registrar the owner
    • /demote-/promote <user> or /level <#> <user>: Sets user level, 3-4 levels should be enough(a la Steam groups)
    • /ignore <user>: Adds user to banlist, any messages are not seen
    • /ban <user> <time>: Bans a user from room
    • /kick <user>: Kicks a user from room
    • /password <pw>: Sets room password
    • /invite <user>: Invites user to room
    • /steamgroup <#>: Ties room to Steam Group, practically anything can be done if Steam is a part of the chat system.*

    Why So Extensive?
    So communities won't need external software for things that can be done within the game. Take TF2 for example: TF2 pickups, mixes, clan chats are all on IRC. Quakenet mostly. Moving all that into the game would be a great improvement. I would even like to see the protocol info released so that people can code bots and use external software to connect to clan chats, etc.

    *IE: Chat room mods are selected from Steam Group, optional requirement that player joining chat is group member. Heck, even integration with steam chat(of the group).

    "I don't care" aka "I can't judge for now". There's a ribbon called 'Socialize' which currently is empty. Whatever VALVe thinks about doing with it, it might make any IRC-ish chat redundant.

    Wait and see. Good idea nevertheless, I've seen many people writing stuff like /join xy, including me.
