YES!!! You can send files to people in the chat!!!
The /send command can be used to send files to other Alamakians. It is quite simple
and works by allowing web based file upload to a blackbox directory. You can retrieve
files from the blackbox but can't see the names of files there unless someone sends it
to you. The box is flushed once a day at midnight. If the file already exists and has
been uploaded you will get a notice that it has already been recieved.
Using the Send Command with Pic
Operators and users who have gotten a /grant from an Op can use the /pic command to attach a picture
to thier nickname. With a little cleverness you can use /send with /pic. Just /send the file to some Operator or
yourself and then
link it with /pic http://woah.alamak.com/upload/yourpicture.jpg or /pic http://www.alamak.com/upload/yourpicture.jpg for server SG.
Ops Sending Files
Alamak Operators can upload and send files to anyone at anytime. Just type /send [nick] to get
the upload form, once uploaded it will auto-refresh and send a link to download/view the file to [nick].
Users Sending Files
Users can send files to Alamak Operators, type /send [nick] and the Operator will get a
notice that you wish to send a file. The Operator can choose to ignore your request or
permit you to upload 1 file. The Operator does this by clicking on a link or typing
/accept [your nick] to accept your to upload.
You will then get a notice and link to click to begin upload. Click to get the upload form.
It's pretty simple actually.
After the upload the page will auto-refresh and send a notice and link for the Operator to
download/view the file. The Operator can click on the link to download and view or
ignore the link (since files may contain viruses or objectional material.
We have had restricted totally free file sending because regular users were
uploading offensive material and it was so heavily used that it was adding
significantly to our operation costs.
Alamak takes no responsibility for the content of files sent through the
black box ftp server. Unknown files can contain illegal/objectional material or
DAMAGE YOUR COMPUTER!!!
These files are not checked by Alamak in anyway, so you should only click to
accept the file if you feel the person presenting the link is trustworthy and you know
what you are doing!
WE REPEAT!!! Alamak is not in any way responsible for files uploaded or recieved through
Alamak, and these files may contain viruses or material objectional or inappropriate for
Sometimes in the past regulars users even sent illegal materials though the file upload.
We have now limited this problem by only allowing regular users who get authorization from
Alamak Operators and Operators themselves to upload and by flushing the blackbox frequently.
Although we are not responsible for the content of files, you can report offensive files
using the Contact Us Page and we'll have them
removed at first opportunity.
