Chat bug[]

I was entering the chat and I saw the previous messages. However one message was with small letters. The code was "[small] text" but instead of the actual small text the code was shown as if it wasn't processed as code, but plain text.

If you didn't understand that it showed "[small] text" where it was supposed to show "text". --AlFas

Changing Wiki Name[]

I've been directed to contact an Admin about this, so here goes. I'd like to change my Wiki name. Currently, it's All RPG Maker Games Wiki. I realized how much of a mouthful that is a day after I created it. There have a been quite a bit of edits since opening the wiki, so I don't want to have to start from scratch...If you change the wiki name, please change it to "RPG Maker Archive". --Desuyo~ (Shion Tamagisa) 22:52, October 1, 2015 (UTC)

Chat Hacks[]

Same as the user below me. I am using a MacBook Air {{SUBST:User:T-Bacon/Sig|00:14,12-May-2015}}

I have put my name in for Ping phrases, and when people say the keyword/s it appers red, but does not make any sound, btw I am on an iMac.

User:Skoobydew I don't even know if I'm using the page right, but I have a bug in the chat hacks where every time i log out and come back it deletes all my pings.

[[User:Troy56021CP]] (Troy56021CP)

I have the same problem as Troy, using an iPad.

/late; Is your volume on? I'd recommend you check this, especially for mobile devices. It plays fine on all of my devices, and even so, do you really need the sound if you're on a mobile device? I'm not an expert on, well, any mobile devices, but you probably need to be in the browser to have the sound play.

I hope this helps! ~Da Nerd () 23:32, February 7, 2014 (UTC)

Same problem Troy had, also on an Apple computer. My hacks are on, and I've checked my volume and made sure it's on, but the text is still only red with no sound. Ping sounds would be convenient for me, since I frequently multitask or have several tabs open. Help please? You've just been Klepto'd! (KleptoBrony) 05:26, April 17, 2014 (UTC)

I'm having same problem with my chat users, our volume is up etc and no sound, on mine I have no other tabs operand still no sound, it shows red but no sound Blitzbear93 (Blitzbear93) 04:36, October 16, 2014 (UTC)Blitzbear93

Doesn't work[]

Hey, this is Spooky Rish from the Respawnables Wiki. Chat Hacks aren't working for me.... some help please??

This is Quetzalcoatl The RainWing, I'm from Wings of Fire Wiki, and the chat hacks aren't working at all.

Possible bug.[]

Hello, I was wondering if it was my use of chathacks that caused chat to inconsistently NOT load up at all for me. Occasionally, the chat would be shown as completely empty (Which by all means is completely possible, though highly unlikely considering how often it appeared to be empty) Also, if chat somehow got itself up and running, it would cut out at random times and cause me to be unable to keep up with ANY conversation in chat. I don't believe this to be a problem with my internet (Haven't been able to check, will do so asap)as other chats work just fine. As do other webpages. Thank you in advance.

I enabled the chat hacks correctly and cleared the cache on both the main page and the chat page. It won't appear and just shows the chat like usual. I don't have the AFK or PM or Clear options, same as the options box appearing. Nothing appears. I tried on my phone and it appears then freezes up. Help!

Chat glitch[]

All of the chats I go on glitch a lot, I can't really explain it, but it's blurry, I can barely type anything, and also it freezes and doesn't show PM's. If you'd like a list of the chat's it's glitched on I can link them, but is this just a Kindle Fire glitch, or an -wide glitch? Thanks, please get back to me c: Also, is glitching with the screen bouncing up and down, but I don't think it is the kindle's fault, it's only 9 months old.

Chat Hacks Cosmetics[]

Hey Monchoman, I've noticed that Chat Hacks puts a star next to users with chat mod status or higher. Is there some way to override the icon to what the chat CSS is set to as we have a different icon. Man with a fancy signature - Telegram 18:59, December 6, 2014 (UTC)


Is is possible to be pinged if someone writes while I'm not on the chat window at the time? And I think pinging doesn't work on private messages. Also I'm sometimes pinged even when the message doesn't contain a word I chose. Why would that be happening? Thanks! Mgc26133 (Mgc26133) 07:01, December 7, 2014 (UTC)

This is also happening to me too. I get pinged for words I don't have on my list?

Chat lags[]

Hi Monchoman. I'm Crayonshinchan0203 and I'm from the Plants vs. Zombies wiki. The thing is our chat really lags.

  • 1. Users may not see each other.
  • 2. A user can post a message before a message annouces the entrance of he/she.
  • 3. The message will sometimes not appear on the chat log.

Hope you fix this for us as soon as possible because I have to refresh chat repeatedly and people are thinking I'm door-spamming. Thank you in advance!

Chat emotes/icons[]

Hi. Some wikis have special emotes for some users. But the vast majority of users, the 99% would think it's unfair and we'd be left out. So I suggest that you implement a feature that when you type a name in parentheses, i.e. (lolwutburger), it shows the user's icon. It's unfair if only some users on a certain wiki get an emote.


Hello. Those wikis chose to add those themselves. You can do that on your own, just look here. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)
I can't, since I'm not a mod/admin. It's page protected and I just want every user to get one. General Disarray (Lolwutburger) 02:46, June 6, 2015 (UTC)
You'll then have to ask an admin to manually create an emoticon for each user. Shyguy-emoticon.gifJoey (talk)

ChatHacks.js Clear[]

When I clear the chat, if I post another message and I was the last to post, my username doesn't show. Ditto for other users.
~Curiouscrab (Curiouscrab) 22:15, July 8, 2015 (UTC)

ChatHacks.js /nickname or /nick[]

I think it would be cool if I could rename a user in chat. Simply just create an empty object (i.e. var nicknames = {};) and then when the /nick or /nickname function is initiated set the certain item inside the object to the specified nickname. I'm not sure how this would change other people's screens when the user posts, though.

Custom fonts for individual users?[]

Group PM Issues[]

Hello . "I want to know if Monochoman can solve the problems of the group PM not functioning if certain users by virtue of their username aren't on the chat when it happens As well as ensuring that whoever makes the group PM, that name will pop up for everyone else who is in it." "Oh, you could even mention about how if certain users are on to make the group PM work, but they somehow leave, it ends up locking out the others from it. On top of that, you can say that the user who is needed for the group PM to actually work, leaves, but others are able to still join in which is bizarre to me." We need to be able to group pm without those issues.

Chat Hacks Not Working Correctly[]

Currently, it tells me the hacks initialize twice, causing mods to have 2 stars and "Ping phrases" to overlap, making me unable to edit my phrases (thankfully, the old one's are still present). I currently use Chrome (because the Ping sound wasn't working on Edge since I'm on Win10) and I've even completely gotten rid of the js, refreshed, waited, went in the chat without it, left, re-added, refreshed, and still nothing. I don't know if you still respond to this thing, but I don't know how to fix this currently.

Temporary chat mute feature[]

I want an automated feature that whenever a user spams too many messages, it would temporarily mute them for a period of 1 - 5 minutes while a warning message appears over the chat box saying "You're typing too fast - don't flood the chatroom!"

Character Page Edits[]

I notice some incorrect info on pages for characters in some anime. But edits aren't allowed in the info box, so the information stays incorrect. I wanted to edit some of the pages for the D.Gray-Man . Fro example, a female character is listed as being a male in her info box. So I could I get it edited. I posted on the pages, but mods there, or whomever don't seem to be active. There's never a response.

If you start a multi-PM and the PM has the name of a user you are already PMing on it, you can no longer access the PM with the other user. Perhaps the multi-PMs could say 'Multi-PM' instead?

Edit: Maybe have the multi-PM say Multi-PM with (people), so you can have multiple?

Mute Button[]

Okay, so, there's a muting feature on other chatroom systems, right? Wikia lacks that. So, I thought after an argument with someone that a mute button would be fine. A mutual friend of ours and room mod gave us this code to use to import to CSS.

.Chat li[data-user="USERNAME"] {

display: none;


I was figuring that might be imported into a button, eventually...
