I have been trying to learn all of the / commands out there and have been unable to find this topic. I have noticed that a lot of people out there don't even know the common ones. I'll start the list with the ones I know.

/tell playersname - To send a message to one player.
/job playersname - To invite a player to job on yer ship.
/who playersname - To find out information on a certain player.
/vwho vesselname - Find info on all player owned vessel's with that name.
/plank playersname - To plank a player of yer ship.

and so on.

Some of them have duplicate aliases:

/emote = /em = /me


You can also daisychain some of them:

/crew /emote picks his nose = /cr /me picks his nose = the phrase "Christoban picks his nose" being sent out over the crew chat channel.

It's not so much daisychaining as certain commands being affectors and certain channels accepting them... vessel, say, and crew chat all accept affectors. /me and /shout are both affectors.

You are likely looking for either "/fwho" which lists all flag members or "/fofficer" which is a chat to all officers in the flag. There is no "who with a filter".

That would be nice though. Have some filtering function. so you could do something like /fwho /officer, or something the other way around, /fof /who which would list the officers in that flag.

Or, you could do a /fw, and then click on individual names to see if they are officers. :)

I'm aware of using /help <cmd> but it doesn't quite help me figure out if a particular command does what I need... More to the point, I was wondering if there is a command that lets you send a normal message (like, to everybody aboard the same vessel as you) but the difference is that it'll make that hailing whistle sound so as to alert them of your message.

So yeah, is there a command that does this? I'm looking for it because it'd be very useful for notifying everybody in a swordfight to reteam or something. (Honestly speaking here, *I* am the one that needs an audio cue in order to get my attention to the message box... I'm too focused during a puzzle! ^^;)

No, there isn't one, but it's been suggested as a game addition several times.
