Plugins were user created software compatible with the WorldsAway client and allowed you to extend the functionality beyond what you could normally use inworld. This allowed for the creation of games, where the WorldsAway client acted as a passthrough of information essentially. This also allowed for interesting users such as macros to allow people to pre-write and save text which could be sent out as a message inworld at the click of a button.
Here are some notable plugin authors from the WorldsAway time period which began in September 1995 and lasted until June 1999.
