Youmacon's IRC Chatroom

Postby ngsilver » Fri Aug 22, 2008 12:46 am

There have been quite a few problems with the AIM chat room. One such problem is that the longer it stays open, links will reach a limit and then everyone has to log off and then create a new chat session to be able to share links. Another problem has been the recent problem where AIM will not allow users to send messages to the chat room. This is just what we have experienced personally, over the years I have come across multiple problems that inhibit users abilities to hold a chat room open for long periods of time.

In light of this, I created an IRC chat that has been working quite well. Quite a few of us stay on all the time. There are no link limits and as long as you can access IRC you can chat away.

Rules:

1. Be civil.
2. Don't **** off a MOD.

Simple enough eh? Mods will be chosen based off of competence and length of time active in the channel. Asking for Mod or Voice status is a sure fire way to not get it.

Info you need to know to get to the chat room
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The IRC server you will need to connect to is: irc.synirc.org

The channel is: #youmacon

The server has a nickserv service that allows you to register your nick so that others can't use it. Once you log in type /nickserv help for info on how to register your nick.

Some general commands you might want to know:

joining a channel: /join #channel
identifying yourself as your nick's owner: /nickserv identify password

How you access IRC
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
You will need an IRC client. They allow you to access the IRC chat service. Kind of like AIM allows you to access the AIM service.

Some good chat programs are mIRC, Xchat, and Chatzilla. Google them. Trillian and pidgn can also access IRC.

If you can't get access to one of these programs you can always use a web service to access the chat. Synirc offers it's own web based chat client here: http://cgiirc.synirc.net/cgi-bin/irc.cgi

You can also find direct access via another web based client here:

Feel free to ask any questions you may have here or ask in the chat. Those of us on who are experienced in using IRC can assist you.

Also, the channel's Bot is Nancy and Freddie. Nancy likes to chat but will only talk if you bother to address her. So if you are bored feel free to ask Freddie some questions and you will surely not be bored anymore. Freddie likes to learn, so for the most part he will sit and listen to you. However if you address him he may respond based on what he has learned. So the more you talk, the more he learns.

As well we also have a quote system. When I see something interesting I will add it. You can get a random quote by typing !quote in the channel.

As well, there is a dice rolling system if you ever feel the need to roll some dice. It supports up to 40 dice and up to 20 sides. It can be a little slow but it works. Just type #d# and it'll roll the dice for you.

My internet is acting pretty funny today.
I got in and I was disconnected

Seems really cool though, so I'm sure I'll be on there from time to time.

I should have posted this a long while ago, but Mibbit.com is a great free, easy-to-use browser-based IRC widget.

For ease-of-use, one can now simply just use the following link, put in a Nickname, and enter the chat!

There's pretty much always people there, so feel free to hop in.

Also, if you run on Firefox, you can just install the add-on "Chatzilla," which is an IRC chat client as well.

THE YOUMA IRC NEEDS YOU!!!!

hey all we of the IRC are very easily distracted people and are in desperate need of entertainment. Seeing as many of you here aren't in the IRC we are starting to assume that you are just not willing to help a bunch of your fellow congoers to deal with advance stage ADD and boredom. So come and join us in the IRC and join in the fun.

(Disclaimer: We of the IRC can be over the top and even a bit rude, subject matter can be of a slightly lewd nature depending on what is being discussed it is not suggested for everyone to join the room but if you are open minded and willing to have fun and make friends then by all means join us)
