Intro to in-game commands

That's right, PingGnome can be accessed through the in-game Battle.net chat. The information Gnome provides in-game is exactly the same as what appears on this site; they both read directly from the main database. Gnome has anti-abuse functions to prevent, well, abuse. There is also a command cooldown (a few seconds), so if someone else is using Gnome at the same time you are, your command might be ignored. If you abuse Gnome, she might warn you to stop, or just flat out ignore you without warning.

Command info

Command syntax is in red font. [Italic bracketed font] indicates optional parameter. Examples of the command are colored blue, and sample output is in purple. Commands do not have a trigger (except when scanning, then any trigger is accepted). All commands are capable of changing gateways, simply append the desired gateway to your message. Example: ping the_lynxy@uswest
