What is a Bind?
Binds are basically shortcuts to express an emotion or action for what you are doing or thinking. For example you could say: Be right back, nature calls!, simply by typing in "/brb2". Just make sure to type a / before any of the commands and your all set! Hint: the commands are anything in front of the = sign.

bullet /:) = me smiles!
bullet /:/ = me frets.
bullet /:p = me sticks out their tongue!
bullet /:| = me is not amused.

You can also use wildcards like "/jd*" that will randomly pick from any of the binds that are named (jd1, jd2, jd3, etc).

You can even make your own! To make one you will want to use the chat log window. Here is the format:
/bind =

For example:
/bind drink = I'll be right back, I need to make me a stiff drink!

Or you should do an action:
/bind drink = /me really needs a stiff drink!
If your name was Ninja, it would then do an an action that said "Ninja really needs a stiff drink!"

Lets talk about a few commands that modify your chat balloons:
1st there is the action "/me" you can type this at the beginning of any chat (in game) and it will announce an action about you like "Ninja is a Spade God!"

/me's will add the " 's " to your name. so you could do "Ninja's playing is off tonight."

/Yell will make a spiky chat balloon useful for things like "Hey, stop trumping me!!"

/think is used for thoughts you'd like to share. It will make a thought balloon. "Hmm, probably just bad seats?"

Binding in Color:
Hit your enter key where says enter and your space bar where is says space no other spaces the color code must be in small letters......

/bind spaceNHT!=~[cff0000]NINJA space~[c66cc00]HUGS space~[c0000ff]TINK! enter

To use this once binded you would simply type:
/nht!......and it would say NINJA HUGS TINK!

1. Change the words to what you want to say.
2. Change the color codes to ones that are the colors of your choice.

Binding Mutli Rainbow:
Example: H U G S
/bind hug=~[cff66cc]H~[c9900cc]U~[cff9900]G~[c 0000ff]S hit enter

To use this once binded you would simply type:
/hugs......and it would say HUGS

***Use no caps in words after /bind and no caps when you type /hugs it will give you an you type in after each code is how it will appear!

Make all binds in Maid Mary's or a less full room, do not flood busy lobbies making binds!
