The default option uses your last selected option.
Framed chat simplifies the chatting process by seperating the posting area and the posts into two seperate sections. This allows you to enter a message in the lower frame while seeing the new posts appear at the top.
A normal part of the operation of streaming is a cut after a period time. This can be based on the amount of posts received or time elapsed, but in both circumstances you will be presented with a Reload link at the bottom of the screen. When this happens, simply click on the link in order to continue where the user left off.
Whispering Realms Chat allows the selection of how posts are displayed to the user. This of course includes the ability to see images or not. The ability to remove special formatting is also possible, meaning that posts of large text size, unusual fonts and colours will be shown simply in plain form.
The entire formatting that individual Puppeteers have placed into their Puppets is received. That is images (unless the supervisor deems them too large) titles and taglines, as well as the posts are released in the font styles selected by the Puppeteer.
No Images (Imageless):
Imageless is similar to full formatting except images are showing only in link form as images in full formation are shown when the images are too large. This can be useful if you do not wish to waste the bandwidth, or find the images deter from the chat/role-playing experience.
Basic Formatting (Spartan):
Spartan lacks any formatting in the posts (no change in text colour, added tags or size) as well as a images being displayed as links only. This is to serve those that wish just the posts and nothing else.
