on a side note, I think I'll just leave this thread open.
if there are any problems getting in or anything else that you might like to know, this might be the best place to ask
then, a small intro into the wonderfull life that is IRC
a small faq:
How do I chance my name?
- you change your name by typing:
How do I register my nickname?
- you register your nickname, by changing your name into the one you want it to be, and then typing:
/ns register password email_adress
and make sure to put in a password that you can remember. then you get an email with a code, enter that code in the chat channel and you're registration is complete.
How do I Identify?
- When you enter the chat, simply change your name to the name you registered and then type:
/ns identify password
after you identiofy for the first time, type this:
/ns set kill on
this will make sure no one else can use your nicknames.
Why should I register my nickname?
- It might become neccessary in the future, to have some of you that have operator status in the channel, that's similar to a moderator on the forums here. in order for you to be added as operator and have you get that automatically eachtime you enter, you need to have a registered nickname.
when and who and if you get this status is of course up to the founder here and the admins there.
What are the ranks in the channel and who holds them?
- the head of the channel is called the founder, in this case that's Troika.
- the admins. those are right below the founder. they can just like the founder, add and remove ranks that are automatic. there are two admins in there, Corryn and myself.
- the operators. the people with opeator rank in there:
stargelman, sinder velvin, darkwing, jonajosa, stargazey, stargate525, oozae. as you can see, that's for the lead editors and the admins on this forums, aside from me then
- lastly we have halfops, the moderators on this forums are halfops in the chat channel
How do I join other channels?
- you join another channel on there with the command:
there are several that you might find interesting:
#elderscrolls (this is the official unofficial channel of the official forums)
#waiting4oblivion (the official channel of our site)
any more questions that might arise and I'll amend this faq
