In-game chat is the primary method of communication at MinecraftOnline, and the method for inputting server commands. The chat system at MinecraftOnline has multiple enhancements over the vanilla version of Minecraft.

Free speech

Game chat at MinecraftOnline affords each player the right to express whatever opinion they wish about any topic they choose - we call this absolute free speech. To find out what this means in detail, see the free speech page.


See Colour Codes for colour samples.

    • New donations and Kit purchases appear in gold.
    • Ban messages appear in magenta.
    • rm101 messages appear in purple.
  • Messages in other languages may also be translated into English so people can understand what someone is saying.
    • A chanop on IRC can use the command !toggle_translation language to toggle if the language will be translated or not.

How to use

It's amazing how many people don't seem to understand this.

Chat on other platforms

In-game chat is available on other platforms - as of now on Discord, IRC and Telegram. Unlike in-game chat, each social platform’s Terms of Service and admin-set rules apply. Users can be banned for violating its rules or by staff’s decision.

TeamSpeak was used in the past, which was faded away in time.
