Miscellaneous

When you enter chat you will see the number of players in the chat channel; if you are the only player in that chat channel the message "There is currently one player in this channel, and that one player is you!" will replace it.

Shout Filter

Disabled March 8, 2011:
The shout filter was a filter that prevented people posting in more than 40% capital letters and exclamation marks (!). Any message that contained more than 40% capital letters and exclamation marks was re-posted as "[shouting]". Posting a "[shouting]" post following another "[shouting]" post acted as a repetition, even if the messages' contents were different. There was no way to turn the shout filter off, but it was disabled in clan chat.

Repetition Filter

Disabled March 8, 2011:
The repetition filter was a filter that prevented people posting the exact same text, or repetitive characters into open chat more than once. It resulted in a message coming back to you saying Repetition. You were still able to /msg a person the same text more than once.
