From Brickimedia Meta

MediaWikiChat (sometimes shortened MWC) is a MediaWiki extension used on Brickimedia, developed primarily by UltrasonicNXT . The extension offers a real-time chatroom for wiki contributors to use. The MediaWikiChat extension creates the special page "Special:Chat".

  • action=chatsendpm&id=0&message=message – Sends a private message, where id=0 is the used ID of the user the PM is to be sent to, and message=message is the text of the private message.

User groups[edit]

MediaWikiChat implements two new user groups into MediaWiki: chatmod and blockedfromchat. Both rights must be given through Special:UserRights.
