A jinx is a phenomenon that changes the target's chatting experience. Like hugs, jinxes are bought with powers (for example, Jumblejinx power), and they require subscriber time to use.

Each type of jinx has a different effect on the target. For example, jumble will jumble the target's messages, while egg will add the word "egg" before each vowel of their messages. Smilies are unaffected by the jinx. You will not receive a notification when the jinx runs out either.

Each jinx power also has its own hug animations when sent, which involve the avatars and names of both the sender and the recipient. These animations may contain an optional message, which can be colored. For example, adding "#ff0000" to the end of the code will add a red color to the text.


How do I send a jinx?

Jinxes can only be sent in a private chat. You will receive error 65 if you try sending them while in the main chat.

There are two commands for sending a jinx:

These commands are followed by:

For example, /jinx 29space25 Hello xat wiki! will spacejinx the user for 29 minutes, with a 25% probability of their messages being jinxed. The animation would appear as follows:

This hug depicts the user who sent the hug chasing the jinxed user with a mallet, and then hitting them over the head.

A jinx is restricted to the chat it applies to (whether main or private). For example, if a person is jinxed in a private chat, the jinx will remain there, and will not apply to other private chats or the main chat. Equally, if a person is jinxed in the main chat, the jinx will not apply to private chats or other chat groups. The jinx will, however, remain across different pools, whether the banpool, staffpool, etc.

It is also possible for a person to be jinxed in both the main chat and private chat simultaneously with two separate jinxes (whether the same or different type). These jinxes apply normally, separate from each other.

Multiple jinxes sent in the same chat cannot overlap or be stacked, and will instead overwrite each other. This includes their duration.

How do I "unjinx" a user?

Currently, there is no official way to "unjinx" a user. Resetting the chat will not unjinx the person either.

The best way is to use a unique command found on each jinx power article. These commands must likewise be sent in a private chat with the jinxed user. For example, to "remove" a jumblejinx:

It is also possible to remove a private chat jinx by signing out and in again. However, the other person must do the same, or they will continue to see the messages as jinxed, unless the jinx runs out naturally with time.
