!kick is a chat command, which allows the use of !kick in Special:Chat.


First, install the custom chat JavaScript and CSS, then add the following to your wiki's MediaWiki:Chat.js:

importArticles( {
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
        // ...
        // ...
} );
importArticles — Best Practices for installing JavaScript on FANDOM
The importArticles statement is designed to combine multiple HTTP requests into a single data transfer, allowing multiple scripts to load and execute faster. If you've been installing several different scripts, your JavaScript file has probably accumulated unnecessary import statements. Click "Expand" to learn how to efficiently batch import scripts to speed up performance and make your code look cleaner. One other approach is by using the MediaWiki:ImportJS.
If your JavaScript file has several lines of code that say importScript, importScriptPage, or importArticles, you may be able to combine them! By batch importing a collection of scripts with a single import, your JavaScript code will load faster and look cleaner. Consider the example below. On the left is an example of what your JavaScript file might currently look like. On the right is how you could improve that code.
Multiple imports — messy and slow One import — clean and efficient
  type: 'script',
  article: 'u:dev:FloatingToc/code.js'
importScriptPage('page1.js', 'wikiname');
importScriptPage('page2.js', 'wikiname');
    type: 'script',
    articles: [
Note: In this example, pay close attention to the placement of commas and other punctuation. For people who aren't familiar with programming (and even those who are!), a common mistake when writing code is to accidentally delete, forget, or misplace critical symbols like commas or quotation marks. This can cause a syntax error that breaks the code. Carefully follow the convention shown here when using importArticles.
But there's much more to importArticles than just this! For more examples and advanced usage, see the help page at Help:Including additional JavaScript and CSS.


!kick can be used to kick a user out of the chat, with a single command:

!kick userToKick

This command can be used only by moderators, and will appear as a normal message, if made by a regular user.

If userToKick is any user absent on the chat, an inline alert is shown, with a message, which can be customized, using the window.absentMessage variable. For instance:

window.absentMessage = '<user> is currently not at the chat.';
importScriptPage('!kick.js', 'dev');

<user> will be replaced by the name of the user which was to be kicked, and must be present in the variable.

  • Default: <user> is not on chat. Cannot kick.


  • Staff cannot be kicked with this script, regardless if the kicking user is a chatmod or admin.
