power users

The power users help suppress offensive or disruptive users in the chatterbox; they can temporarily suspend a user's ability to use the messaging system (both cb and private messaging). This is called borg'ing a user. The default suspension is for 10 minutes.

A list of all currently borg'ed users can be seen in the Borg's Belly.

Spells for Power Users:

/borg username [ time [ quip ] ]

Blocks a user from using the messaging system for time (default: 10m).
A message will be posted to the cb stating the fact. You may override the default quip.
quip is optional, and if omitted, time is also optional. (That is, you can't provide a quip but not a time.)
time Takes the form 10s, 10m, or 10h (seconds, minutes, hours, respectively). (You can put any integer you want, of course.) You cannot combine these time scales; 1h30m does not work. You may omit the 'm' if you are specifying minutes.
The username can be in square brackets.

/reaper quip

Posts a message to the cb as if spoken by NodeReaper. The text will be posted as something spoken.
The /me command is also available, e.g.: /reaper /me picks his teeth. But other "slash" commands apparently do not work, e.g. /reaper /msg ...

To spring someone from the brig early, Power Users can do so via the belly page.

If you're a power user, you can visit the group's message inbox.

[Corion]: choroba: Ooof! I can imagine that ;)
[Corion]: I think at a Perl workshop some years ago I gave two talks on the same day and after that decided to only submit one talk per event ;)
[LanX]: you play the triangle, right?
[choroba]: just one of its angles, in fact
[LanX]: <|--
[choroba]: Reminds me of an old joke about an orchestra...
erix imagines that in a true Lancs accent
