Growtopia features a chatting system that can be used to communicate with other users. It is displayed at the top of the page and is resizeable. When a player tries to say inappropriate language, all of the inappropriate words will be replaced with @#!? (or a combination of these symbols). Players can remove this by un-checking the filter inappropriate language in the Parental Controls part of options. Options can be accessed by clicking the menu at the top right corner. However, it is recommended that younger players keep this option turned on.
Abusing the chat feature by spamming text quickly, swearing excessively, or using macros such as spam bots will result in a punishment like a ductape or a game ban depending on what the player did.
There are a variety of commands that can be used in the chat, by entering a slash (
/) followed by the command name. There are also several commands that cause your character to perform emotes until they move. These commands can also be seen at START. These commands are still executable even if there are additional letters following the original command. For example:
/lovebug will still execute the command
The list of commands players can use are:
|Shows all the available chat commands.|
|Searches for players that start with the said player name and sends a private message to the player, or if there are many, the first 3 matching names.
Appending a / to the player name specifies it as an exact search, which excludes usernames that have the player name, along with a few characters.
Excluding the message simply tells you the exact names of the people online starting with the player name specified. If you requested an exact search, it will determine if that username is online or not.
|Sends a message to the last person who private messaged you.|
|Says a message with /me replaced by the player's username, and the message surrounded by angle-brackets.
Example: /me is cooking will be interpreted as <[username] is cooking>
Prevents you from seeing chat messages and receiving private messages from the specified player. You can un-ignore people using the Friends List.
Ignoring yourself will display the chat: Don't look now, but that person is IN YOUR HOUSE!
|Allows you to trade with a specific person in a world.
Trading yourself will display the chat: You trade all your stuff to yourself in exchange for all your stuff.
|Allows you to Pet Battle with a specific person in a world.
Typing this command while you don't equip a Battle Leash, the chat will display: You don't have a Battle Leash equipped!
Battling yourself (only if a Battle Leash equipped) will display the chat: You did it, you defeated yourself in a Pet Battle!
|Broadcasts a message to 1000 randomly selected players online. Costs 300 Gems to use. Note that there are certain conditions to broadcast in an effort to reduce broadcast spam.|
|Allows you to broadcast to a specific number of people. However, you can custom broadcast to a minimum of 1001 players. The price depends on number of people you custom broadcasted to. (1 gem per 3.33 players/3 gems per 10 players)|
|Broadcasts a message to all players online. The price depends on the number of players online.|
|Broadcast a message to all players online. It's a super broadcast that people can't ignore. When used, a window will pop up showing the message, a GO! button and a cancel button. It costs 50 Growtokens, but is currently disabled due to lag concerns.|
|Super Supporter only command. Allows you to warp to a specific world. After using this command, you'll have to wait for 15 seconds to use it again.
While warping to a world, the chat will display: Magically warping to world <World Name>...
Attempting to warp to a world with special characters, the chat will show: >Invalid world name! Look, /warp is a magical command and all, but it can't go there!
This command isn't displayed on non-Supporter player on /help command list. Attempting to do so will display the chat: The /warp command lets you instantly travel to another world. This command is only available to Super Supporters! It has a 15 second cooldown. To warp directly to a door do it like: /warp <worldname>
Super Supporter only command. Hides or shows the Super Supporter status of player.
This command isn't displayed on non-Super Supporter player on /help command list. Attempting to do so, it'll response as an unknown command.
