It would be cool if we could use commands, for example:

There's one more very helpful command, and probably the one you'll use a lot when first starting out.
Type /help, you'll see the the mIRC Help Menu open up. You can do a search from there, or you can type /help topic. Either way, a TON of information at your fingertips.
Example: /help Basic Commands

Unfortunately, there will be times when you don't want to talk to someone, or else someone may be harassing you.
By typing /ignore nickname 3, you will not receive anymore messages from that person.
Example: /ignore luv2quilt 3
To Unignore them, type /ignore -r luv2quilt 3
What it looks like:
*** Added *!*bossmom@*.dialup.netins.net to ignore list
*** Removed *!*bossmom@*.dialup.netins.net from ignore list

Type /ping nickname. What this command does is give you the ping time, or lag time, between you and the person you pinged. Lag can be explained as the amount of time it takes for you to type your message and for others to read your messages. Unfortunately, lag is always a part of IRC, although most times it's not a problem, just a nuisance.
Example: /ping luv2quilt
What it looks like:
[19:04] -> [luv2quilt] PING
[19:04] [luv2quilt PING reply]: 0secs

/notice (or maybe warning, it could show up in red)
A notice is used to send a short message to another person without opening up a private window.
Type /notice nickname (message)
Example: /notice badnick Please change your nickname for this family channel.
What it looks like:
-> -badnick- Please change your nickname for this family channel.

The /me is an action message.
Type /me 'does anything'
Example: /me waves hello
What it looks like:
* bossmom waves hello

Type /msg nickname (message) to start a private chat.
Example: /msg puddytat Hey tat, how are you?
What it looks like:
-> *puddytat* Hey tat, how are you?

Kick the person from chat

Chat message of the day

Chat rules

/Away or /afk
State that you are away from the computer

I like the drop-down since it makes it much easier especially to those users new to owning a forum.

Even though I know most of the commands cause mibbit was my first chat app. I had to read through their wiki and Jcink.com's irc wiki in order to learn how to actually use it (kick, op, ban people etc)

I heartedly agree with you. I would love to see stuff like this incorporated into IP.Chat..

Not to mention the ability to buy IP.Chat via a one-time fee and host it myself.
