Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top supports a number of chat commands. For example:

/w USERID Hello UserId!

sends "Hello UserId!" to that user. I'd like to see the current list of commands now that Starcraft 2 has come out, so that I can learn any changes, additions, or anything specific to Starcraft 2.

I have been able to find several dated, unofficial lists, but I would far prefer a current, official list, which I have not been able to find. Can anyone find one?

For reference, in case we can't find an official list, here is the most complete old, unofficial list I found.

As far as I know, the only chat command that was left in 2.0 is /r, which replies to people in-game. All other chat commands have been removed.

Possible on Starcraft I suppose, but they can't have removed all those commands from WoW! I will test some of the old ones in SC2 tonight. – WillfulWizard Aug 13 '10 at 17:50
If you have a party, /p works. Maybe it's a subset of the WoW commands? – Adeese Aug 13 '10 at 19:04
Sadly, my own playing and everything I hear from others says this is true. We only have a few remaining chat commands. It could still be useful to compile them here. – WillfulWizard Sep 13 '10 at 5:48

It looks like the official list for classic can be found here (which appears to be the source of the link that WillfulWizard mentioned).

This is a step in the right direction. The classic list being found first makes me more concerned that @Brandon's answer is correct. – WillfulWizard Aug 13 '10 at 17:51
