Announcement Orbiter IRC Chat - #Orbiter-Forum
by Tex 07-25-2010, 09:43 PM

Greetings Orbinauts!

We're happy to announce that we've registered our own IRC channel which is now fully operated by O-F staff and is the official Orbiter-Forum chat room. If you don't know how to use IRC and do not have a client for connecting, then you may use our java based web application located at the link below:

http://www.orbiter-forum.com/chatbox.php

In order to connect you simply visit that link and allow the java script permission to run. You must be a member of the forum to use the java based web application linked above. When you connect to the chat, your forum username will automatically be used.

If you do not have a forum account or for those familiar with IRC using another client, then you may connect with the details below:

Server: irc.systemnet.info
Port: 6667
Channel: #orbiter-forum

Due to NPAPI plugin support dropped in recent Chrome versions, alternate way is to use CIRC for Google Chrome. Below there is video describng how to connect to IRC using CIRC app for Chrome.




O-F rules apply in IRC chat with the following adjustments:
  1. Discussion of moderator/operator action is strictly prohibited.
  2. Multiple accounts: You are permitted to have a maximum of two accounts connect to the IRC channel.
  3. Vulgarities and obscenities are allowed, however excessive swearing is frowned upon.
  4. Graphic images/videos are permitted however you are required to define this by including "NSFW" (Not Safe For Work) prior to the link.
  5. Flooding and Spamming #Orbiter-Forum is not allowed and a swift penalty will be applied.
  6. Coloured text is not permitted.
  7. Do not impersonate O-F/#Orbiter-Forum IRC members.
  8. You must also abide by the SystemNet rules (http://www.systemnet.info/netrules.html)
Infractions can be incurred on O-F if you break O-F/IRC rules. A Ban on the Forum will result in a ban on IRC!


Guidance on IRC ettiquette:
  • Due to the small number of members, conversation on the channel will at times be non existent.
  • Do not TYPE IN UPPERCASE as this is considered shouting.
  • When requesting help for a technical question, please wait for a response.
  • #Orbiter-Forum is an informal chat. There will, more often than not, be conversations not relating to Orbiter.
  • Changing your nickname is disruptive and makes it difficult for other users to follow conversations.
  • If you are unsure of the rules, think would you post it on the forum. If not, don't post it on the channel.
  • Bots are strongly discouraged.
