Boards (Objects Help)
The bulletin boards scattered around Arda are yet another form of
communication that is available for you. Most boards are represented
as a stationary object in the room; you can distinguish them by the
text following their short description, like "[25 notes, 25 new]".
All boards share the same commands:
- post [<title>] - Post a new note. Default title is '<no title>'.
To end a note, leave a period (.) on a line by
- post [in <language>] <title> - Post a new note in a language you know;
note that the syntax is very specific. A title
is required in this case.
- read board - List all of the notes on the board; in many cases,
just 'look board' will have the same effect.
- read <num> - Read a specified note.
- reply <num> [<tl>] - Reply to specified note. Default title is
'Re: old title'
- remove <num> - Remove a specified note (only if you posted it).
- edit <num> - Edit text of a specified note (only if you posted
- bsearch <text> - Search for notes containing given text.
- archives - List all archived notes for this board.
- archives <num> - View an archived note.
- bsearch [-archives] <text> - Search archives for given text.
Guild boards also have restricted access commands available, with
access set by the GM of the guild. Additional information about these
commands is found in the GM Handbook. Restricted commands include:
- boardaccess - List the current access requirements of a guild
board and how to change them.
- mlock - Lock a message on a guild board.
- munlock - Unlock a message on a guild board.
Guild board privileges can also be moderated via guild ranks.
At any time when '<num>' is a potential argument, specify the number
of a current note, use 'current' to refer to the last note you manipulated,
or 'next' to refer to the next note on the board.
As boards are a public form of communication, board notes are subject
to 'help comm policy'. This applies to guild boards as well.
