Clicking a member's name opens a menu offering the options: Whisper, Info, Send Mail and Ignore. The text within the text bar will change depending on your choice. Players who have won the Lord of Ultima quest have gold text in all-chat and a crown next to their name. The crown is Silver if said quest was won on another world, Gold for this world. It also appears in Whisper, but not in Alliance chat.
The LoU Tweak tool provides BB Code shortcuts and other features.
