The command /kick serves the purpose of allowing administrators to expel players that have just been banned from the alliance. If the player expelled from the Chat is still in the alliance, he can start a new session immediately.

6. F.A.Q. - Frequently Asked QuestionsQ: Both the main alliance and the recruit posses Platinum, is there a way for the members of the main alliance to participate in the Chat of the recruit?
A: No, not yet.
Q: I have just banned a member from the alliance, but he's still in the Chat, what must I do?
A: Every time that you ban a member from the alliance, you must verify if he is in the Chat's registered members list, with the /list command and if the member is listed, you must expel him with the /kick
Q: Who are the Chat's administrators?
A: They are the same as the alliance's.
Q: Is it possible to view the message history beyond the last 20?
Q: Can one send private messages?
A: No, however we're considering discussing the subject in the future.
Q: What are the reasons for Chat to sometimes jump to the login page?
A: There are several possibilities: Timeout, Logout (/quit), Expulsion (/kick) or the session has expired (after 8 hours).
Q: Is there a way to submit an espionage report in the Chat?
A: Yes, by using SE-EXTRAS you can upload the report and then place the link in the Chat in less than a minute.
Q: I was only able to submit the message after clicking "Enter" and/or the "Send" button several times. What is going on?
A: The message you are trying to send only disappears from the message input box after the system guarantees that it has effectively been sent. Sometimes, due to delays in the server or other delays, this guarantee is not received immediately and you have to wait a few seconds for the message to effectively be sent. It is unnecessary to click several times.
Q: Why is it that sometimes when I return to the Chat, after being in other parts of the game, this one returned a timeout?
A: Every time you abandon the Chat window for more than 30 seconds, the system assumes that you are no longer participating and may timeout.
