In games, slash commands are special "commands" that can be executed in a chat window. They usually place a special character before the actual command text, like a slash, to differentiate between commands and normal chat conversation. These slash commands typically can also be run from script files, from other game code including AddOns, and in game console windows. Historically this type of construct goes back to Id Software's games, like Quake and before where the name was popularized.
WildStar uses slash commands with its chat system where they can be executed, in Macros, and with its AddOn system where slash commands can be used and created. See WS Slash commands for a list of WildStar slash commands.
