Be Alert! a personal compilation of iRacing tweaks, links & information.
• iRacing release notes & updates (last updated 2016s4) for site updates and random posts
Help keep this site hosted: 
• From 2016: Alt-Tab | in-sim Video Capture | DirectX 11 | Dirt site updates suspended (18 November 2016)
some links may be added to Facebook post

06/2017: Facebook removed the (above) linked post.
8 months of links and info vanished without reason!

After 4 years, has outgrown the 1 person maintaining it,
especially with Facebook deleting information I was compiling.

With support the site will remain hosted as is.
Random posts may be added to facebook.

  • move car up to next lap and send to the end of the pace line
!advance [<message>]   
 • advance to next session (qualify to grid, etc)
!chat [<driver>]   
 • enable chat for all drivers    
 • if driver is specified, re-enable chat for that driver.  
!nchat [<driver>]   
 • disable voice/text chat for all drivers except administrators    
 • if driver is specified, disable chat for that specific driver only  
!black <driver> [time] or [L(laps)]
 • give a driver the black flag
 • default is a stop and go, optionally specify time or laps to hold
!dq <driver> [<message>]   
 • disqualify a driver from the race, but do not remove them from the server
!eol <driver> [<message>]   
 • move driver backwards to end of pace line  
!clear <driver> [<message>]   
 • clear all pending or active black flags, dq's or eol's for a driver 


<car number>
  • send driver a private message (anyone can do this any time).

R (type R or r) from either the driving screen or the session screen
 • it responds to the last person who private-messaged you
/rc <message>
  • send a message to the admins for the current event
  • (rc aka race control)
/all <message> (admins only)
  • Sends a chat message to all drivers even if chat is disabled
== NOTES ==
[<message>] is an optional message that will be broadcast to all the users.   
So the command '!remove #32 Banning for reckless driving' would send out the notification: '#32 was removed from the system. Banning for reckless driving.' to all drivers.
<driver> the form is one of the following:
  • name[.name]  eg John.Smith (you could also try just John or just Smith).
  • #<car number> eg #88 the car's assigned number - not car position.

• Name represents the beginning portion of a name so bob matches on bob or bobby    
• you can string together multiple names using '.' to replace spaces so b.brown could match 'bob brown'    
• Names must be specified sufficiently to give a unique result.    
• If two names conflict but one is an exact match than that name is used. This is so bob.brown and bobby.brown can be differentiated.    
• The # symbol is optional to help make things faster.
