Growtopia features a chat 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). You can remove this by un-checking the "filter inappropriate language" in the Parental Controls part of options. 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 you 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 you can use are:
|Lists all the available chat commands.|
|Usage: /msg <player> <message>; 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.
|Usage: /r <message> Sends a message to the last person who private messaged you.|
|Usage: /me <message>; 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>
|Usage: /ignore <player>; Prevents you from seeing chat messages and receiving private messages from the player specified. You can un-ignore people using the Friends List.|
|Usage: /broadcast <message> It broadcasts a message to 1000 randomly selected players online. Costs 150 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.|
|Game Status Commands|
|Shows the current time in Growtopia. (EDT Time)|
|Lists your current world, the worlds you have previously visited, number of backpack slots, and status effects.|
|Lists server uptime, number of players online by platform, active worlds, and server CPU load.|
|Lists players in your current world, as well as displays their names over their avatars.|
|Shows the game rules.|
|Shows the Growtopia Gazette.|
|Opens the friends menu.|
|Opens the World Rankings menu.|
|Toggles the radio, hiding public broadcasts when disabled. (This is enabled by default)|
|Lists the usernames of the Game Moderators currently online and visible.|
|Usage: /pull <player>; For lock owners,you will pull that person to your current location, if he is standing on an area you control. Note that only the World Lock considers the White Door in its area of control, along with Bedrock.
If you are the owner of a world and you attempt to pull yourself, the chat will display:"Ouch!"
|Usage: /kick <player>; For lock owners, instantly kills and sends the indicated player back to the White Door. It ignores the capability of the Checkpoint.
If you are the owner of a world and you attempt to kick yourself, the chat will show "You give yourself a solid boot to the backside. But what did that really accomplish?"
|This is the more powerful type of kick, but it takes a bit long to recharge afterwards. It moves everyone (except admins and the owner) to the White Door after a 5 second delay mechanism. Because it's so powerful, it can be used only once every 10 minutes.|
Usage: /ban <player>; For players with World Lock access, bans the indicated player from entering the world for one hour.
If you are the owner of a world and you attempt to ban yourself, the chat will display: "You are banned from banning yourself!"
|Un-bans all players who were previously banned, regardless if there were any players banned. Only works in World-Locked worlds you've gained access to the lock.|
|Moves your player to the location of the last broadcast, if possible. (It's not much useful due to considerable spam)|
|Moves your player to the location of the last private message received, if possible.|
|Takes you to another server. It is usually only opened for around 2-4 days to the public and any activity in this server will not be saved. Used primarially nowadays for testing updates prior to release but originally only used to stress test new server upgrades.|
|It takes a screenshot of the whole world, along with the pictures of the admins and the world name on the lower right corner. It can be used only once per day, and only the owner of the world can produce the picture.
See World Render for more information.

Chat in Growtopia can be colored with use of the backtick (
`), character followed by a character to indicate the color desired. Moderators like @Aimster, @Jenuine, @LOKSTER, @AV8R, @Elbin, etc. can automatically talk in light green or in this Wikia, lime. The Developers @Seth, @Hamumu, @Heroman (Seth and Hamumu accounts) can automatically talk in purple or in this Wikia, pink. You can also talk like them by clicking the backtick (`) and ^ (if you want as a moderator's) or # (if you want as a developer's). The colors and how to trigger them are below.
