The following rules are intended only to provide a baseline for behavior in the IRC room. They are not all-inclusive, since not every situation can be predicted, but hopefully with some common sense and decency, our chat members won't pursue situations which their behavior is in question.
By entering the chat, you are agreeing to abide by them, or face consequences which can include but not be limited to kicking or banning.
|Changing Your Nick:||
Type /nick [new_nickname]
If your nickname gets changed to Guest, someone else on the network has registered it. Unless you own the nick, you'll have to pick another nickname.
To register a nickname, type /nickserv register [password] [email_address]
YOU DON'T NEED TO HAVE YOUR NICK REGISTERED TO BE IN THE CHATROOM
Once you sign on with your registered nickname you need to type /nickserv identify [password] before your nick gets changed to a Guest nick.
|Joining Another Room:||
Type /join #[channel_name]
You can switch between rooms you've joined by using the tabs at the top of the chat application
|Identifying Ops:||Ops (Chatroom Moderators) have a @ or ! symbol next to their name in the users list. Treat them with respect, and they will do the same to you.|
